Steve Blum, the acclaimed voice actor known for his portrayal of iconic characters such as Wolverine, Starscream, and Spike Spiegel brings his immense talent to the role of Mephisto in Diablo 4. With a career spanning over 800 gigs, Blum has established himself as a prominent figure in the world of voice acting, and his portrayal of Mephisto is no exception.
Who is Mephisto in Diablo 4?
The Lord of Hatred and one of the three Lords of Hell, Mephisto has been the least explored among his brethren hitherto in the Diablo series. While Diablo and Baal have taken center stage as primary antagonists, Mephisto had a limited appearance as the boss of Act 3 in Diablo 2 before being imprisoned.
However, his role is much more pronounced in Diablo 4, where the main villain is his own daughter, Lilith. Mephisto’s banishment of Lilith from hell after her betrayal, and her subsequent return to wreak havoc suggests a significant role for the devious Lord of Hatred in the game. Despite being considered the weakest of the Prime Evils, Mephisto’s cunning and his ability to tempt mortals into acts of hatred make him a formidable and intriguing character in the Diablo universe.
