The following article contains information from the Diablo I expansion Hellfire, which was not made by Blizzard Entertainment. Thus, it is not considered canon.


The Brotherhood of the Bough is a monkhood that exists in a desolate wilderness, where their people were forced to flee after being conquered by an invading army of men.

Ways of LifeEdit

Because of their great defeat, these people vowed to become masters of the arts of combat. Lacking resources such as iron, they learned to use their bare hands and simple wooden staves as deadly weapons, and do not depend on metal armor to provide protection in battle against any foe they encounter. Instead, they rely upon speed and concentration. In their harsh native clime, they have been forced to find food and other essentials in the most unlikely of places. Over time, this careful searching has honed their visual perception to an almost supernatural level.

Current StandingEdit

In Diablo: Hellfire, the Monk is believed to have come to Tristram because a dark sickness has fallen upon his homeland, and many of his people have died because of it. The Brotherhood of the Bough has sought to unearth the foulness, to no avail.
