The Sisters of the Sightless Eye are a loosely organized guild shrouded in mystery amongst the peoples of the West. These highly skilled archers employ ancient Eastern philosophies that develop an "Inner Sight" that they use both in combat and to circumvent dangerous traps that they may encounter. Known only as wandering Rogues in the West, the Sisters conceal their secret affiliation by posing as simple travelers. Many pompous fools have made the mistake of underestimating these steel nerved women in combat and paid a terrible price for their vanity.
Deckard Cain explains in the Book of Cain (page 115) that the sisters were originally dissident Askari Amazons from the Skovos Isles. The Askari had a mirror called the Sightless Eye, which served as a means to perceive the future. The dissident Amazons formed the Sisterhood and stole the Sightless Eye and fled to Eastgate Keep.
The strange events transpiring in Khanduras have caught the attention of many of these Rogues. They have come from as far as the Eastern dunes to test their skills against the dark evil that is said to be lurking in Tristram. It is also believed that untold riches wait to be discovered among the ruins of the Horadrim monastery.
Although not as powerful in close combat as the Warrior, the Rogue is the undisputed master of the bow. A skilled Sister can send a stream of arrows at an opponent, each fired with a seemingly careless precision. The innate sixth sense that all Rogues seem to possess also allows them to sense trapped fixtures, and aids them in attempts to disarm these traps.
The guild also appears in Act I of Diablo II, in which the sisterhood has been driven from their ancestral Rogue Monastery by the forces of the Demon Queen Andariel. The surviving Rogues have set up a Rogue Encampment, which serves as the hero's main base during Act I. Additionally a large portion of the sisterhood has been corrupted by Andariel, most notably Blood Raven, who is the Rogue from Diablo I. Apparently the Sisters' strongest warriors chose to side with evil.
