Journey to UrehEdit
In life, Humbart was a veteran fighter from Westmarch, making a living as a mercenary captain. In the year -736, he traveled with Gregus Mazi to Ureh. On the seventh day, Mazi again approached the edge of the city's ruins. Humbart told him that the quest was helpless and they should just leave, but Mazi remained steadfast. Humbart was skeptical of Mazi's claims of reaching Ureh and entering Heaven, but sure enough, a shimmer occurred, and the ruins appeared 'alive.' Lights even glowed from them. Mazi disappeared before their eyes as he entered the shadow of the city. Neither Humbart or his men would follow the Sorcerer. The mercenaries camped outside the ruins. They heard voices coming from them, as if calling to them, but none of them would enter. He told his mercenary company that when Mazi came out the following day, they'd go in and get their fill. But tomorrow came, and there were no ruins, no lights, no voices, and no Gregus Mazi.
Long after his death, Zayl the Necromancer used his powers on Humbart's skull and it became Zayl's personal companion and magical off-hand tool. Zayl keeps Humbart's talking skull inside his belt pouch.

Reaper of SoulsEdit
Humbart was with Zayl as he entered the Blood Marsh, in a bid to fix the imbalance in the area. The pair encountered the Nephalem. Despite Zayl telling Humbart to be quiet, he told the Nephalem that if Zayl had been in the Tomb of Rakkis when Malthael had come to retrieve the Black Soulstone, he wouldn't have succeeded. The Nephalem told them of their intention to kill Adria. Humbart decided the matter to be settled, and that they should go get a drink.
Humbart appears as both an NPC and pet in Diablo III.
Is this skull wreathed in a purple haze? A brave warrior with many opinions, Humbart journeys still through the mortal plane, sharing his version of wit and wisdom.
- The timeframe for Humbart's travels with Gregus Mazi can be ascertained per the belief that Ureh briefly reappears every 2000 years. If this is the case however, then Humbart is a contradiction, as Westmarch didn't exist as a nation during this time, nor did the Zakarum faith.
