    Tyto the Swift
"What do I know about Tyto? Everything and nothing. I've got a million contradictory tales about a red-caped acrobat with a sword. Some tales are folklore, others propaganda...but Tyto doesn't stay in one place long enough for a story to stick."
—Uthnan, House Karkaresh sage-historian

Tyto the Swift is an enigmatic sword-wielding vigilante, whose heroic deeds are heralded throughout the land.

Tyto is an assassin hero who relies on speed and mobility to secure kills and escape dangerous situations.

As their basic melee attacks, Tyto uses their sword Talon. When using their first ability, Swoop, Tyto leaps into the air and performs a lunge attack with their sword upon landing. Their second ability, Blade Dance, causes Tyto to spin wildly while holding out their sword, cutting anyone nearby. As their third ability, Tyto can send out their trusty companion, Fang, to attack enemies, causing them to bleed. Tyto's Focus ability, Blur, is a powerful rush attack that delivers bleeding wounds to anyone in its path.

  • Ambiguous Gender: According to Word of God, nobody knows Tyto's gender. In-game texts alternate between feminine, masculine and neutral pronouns.

  • Lightning Bruiser: One of the fastest characters in the game and capable of shredding down opponents very quickly along with being able to take more punishment then you would think.
  • Master Swordsman: Very proficient with a sword. If you can see the blade coming, it's because Tyto wants you distracted.

  • Weasel Mascot: Fang, Tyto's ferret-like pet.

    The Margrave
They cheered the Margrave's victory over the demon, but the cheers turned to gasps when they saw the Margrave's missing hand. Then the gasps turned to cries of horror as the Margrave ripped the forearm from the demon's corpse and grafted it into place.

The Margrave is a fearsome military leader who lost his hand in a battle with a demon and replaced it with the demon's severed forearm. Some say the demon hand corrupted the Margrave, though supposedly he wasn't exactly a saint even before his battle with the demon. Having lost everything, he lives for battle alone.

The Margrave is an unstoppable juggernaut, a tank hero capable of taking and dealing heavy damage.

He can use his Demon Fist to unleash a powerful melee attack combo. His first skill, Hellburst channels a shield of infernal flames from his demon hand, damaging enemies and deflecting their projectiles. His second skill, Charge Forth, grants him armor and pushes enemies out of the way as he rushes into battle. Using his third ability, Staggering Leap, the Margrave jumps high into the air and crashes down, stunning all enemies caught in the impact zone. The Margrave's Focus skill, Ground and Pound, creates a shock wave that launches nearby enemies upward.

  • An Arm and a Leg: He lost his right hand in a battle with a demon. He then replaced it by ripping a forearm from the demon's corpse and putting it in place of his own missing hand.
  • Blood Knight: Having lost everything, including his name and family, he lives for battle alone.
  • Close-Range Combatant: The only hero with no potential for ranged combat whatsoever. You best hope he doesn't catch up to you though.
  • Cool Helmet: Wears a large, pointy helmet on his head.
  • Counter-Attack: The Counter upgrade for his basic attack allows him to perform an attack which deals increased damage to attacking enemies while also interrupting and weakening them. He also gains a huge increase to his front armor when using Counter, mitigating any damage he may sustain while performing it.
  • Deflector Shields: His Hellburst skill allows him to deflect projectiles fired by enemy heroes.
    • Attack Reflector: The skill can be upgraded to return enemy projectiles to their source.
  • Dynamic Entry: Staggering Leap. If you're not paying attention, the Margrave might suddenly fall from the sky, stunning and dealing damage to you and everyone around you.
  • Elemental Punch: His right arm gets shrouded in flames when he's performing his melee combo.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Margrave is a medieval title for a military commander who was assigned to maintain the defense of one of the border provinces of a kingdom.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: His helmet covers the top half of his face, including his eyes.
  • Ground Punch: When upgraded, his basic melee combo ends with him hitting the ground, damaging all nearby enemies.
  • Hellfire: While using his Hellburst skill he channels demonic flames from his demon arm, damaging enemies and deflecting projectiles.
  • The Juggernaut: Stopping the Margrave is no small feat. He has the highest health and armor values in the game, and he can gain even more armor from Charge Forth and Ground and Pound. He also possesses a natural immunity to critical hits as well as a deflector shield to fend off ranged attacks. To top it off his leap and charge skills give him a surprising amount of mobility.
  • Mighty Glacier: The Margrave has the highest health pool out of any character and hits like a truck, but is slow compared to most other heroes.
  • Really 700 Years Old: His exact age isn't stated but it's implied to be in the hundreds. It's uncertain whether it's the demon hand, his own hatred or something else that's kept him going.
  • Shockwave Stomp: His Staggering Leap skill involves him leaping into the air and coming down with enough force to briefly immobilize nearby opponents.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His legs are quite tiny compared to his massive upper body.

"We think their sniper, Imani, is hidden on that ridge, sir."
"Then why are you cowering behind these rocks? She couldn't hit a barn at that dist—"
—last words of Commander Sedgwick, House Tesserus

Imani's basic attack, Autobolts, launches a burst of medium-ranged bolts from her crossbow. Her first ability, Silent Scope, zooms her into her crossbow's scope and changes her basic attacks into powerful long range shots. Her second ability, Cycle Ammo, loads three special bolts into her crossbow, causing her next shots to deal extra damage and burning to enemies. Her third ability, Smoke Bomb, creates a cloud of smoke which turns allies invisible and weakens enemies.

  • Smoke Out: Her Smoke Bomb skill creates a cloud of smoke that turns all allied heroes inside it invisible.
  • Trick Arrow: She can load her crossbow with two special kinds of bolts: explosive Boom Bolts which set enemies on fire or Frost Bolts which freeze them.

Fight or flight? I'll take both!"

Her basic attack fires her currently equipped weapon, either the rapid fire Machine Pistols or the long-ranged Cannon. Beckett's first skill, Grenade, tosses out an explosive that bounces off of terrain before exploding. Her second skill allows her to switch between her two weapons, while her third skill, Jetpack, allows her to boost herself upwards for a limited time.

Prized pupil of Devaedra herself, Xenobia emerged from the maelstrom with her mind, her pride, and her ambition intact. The physical changes...those were merely the price of power, Xenobia mused, and perhaps they could even be appreciated in time.

Xenobia is a sorceress and a student of Lady Devaedra, the head of House Devaedra. In exchange for power, she underwent a drastic transformation that turned her lower body into a mass of tentacles.

Xenobia is a control hero whose uses a wide range of crowd control and debuffs to hinder her enemies.

Her basic attack, Gaze of Envy, is a medium-range beam that drains health from enemies. Her first ability Words of Spite, is a homing projectile that reduces enemy armor, making them more vulnerable to damage. Her second ability, Wave of Sorrow, casts a wave that knocks up and weakens enemies. Her third ability, Mark of Despair, creates a circular area on the ground that slows enemies who enter it. Xenobia's Focus skill, Cursed Soul, immobilizes and curses enemies and also siphons health from them to heal Xenobia. However, enemies caught in her Focus can't be damaged while they're immobilized.

Field notes, trial #88-34:

  • Fun with Acronyms: It seems a bit uncertain as to what the name of HK-206's Focus ability S.W.A.R.M. stands for. Various interpretations include "Salvo Weapon Artillery, Range Medium", "Shock Wave And Rubble Maker" and "Should Work All Right...Maybe?"

  • More Dakka: HK-206's playstyle involves showering enemies with lots and lots of bullets.

"Aisling promised to make her father proud, and Sir Cador promised to always protect his daughter. Even Cador's death could not break such promises."
—Lord Protector Yath, House Aurion

Aisling is a summoner hero who fights alongside the ghost of her father, Sir Cador, who grants her a good amount of utility as well as offensive capability.

Aisling's basic attack, Slash, is a melee attack performed with her sword that causes Sir Cador to deal extra damage to targets hit by it. Aisling's first skill, Cador's Command, allows her to summon Sir Cador and move him around the battlefield. Her second skill, Cador's War Cry, causes Sir Cador to unleash and attack that interrupts and slows enemies in an area. Her third skill, Into the Blade, returns Sir Cador to Aisling's sword, restoring health for both of them, but preventing Aisling from using Sir Cador for a few seconds. Aisling's Focus skill, Terrify, slowls, launches and weakens enemies near Aisling.

  • Ancestral Weapon: The sword which she wields used to belong to her father.
  • Bash Brothers: Aisling isn't really a hero on her own - she's actually more of a duo with the ghost of her father, Sir Cador.
  • Brave Scot: This Little Miss Badass speaks with a Scottish accent.
  • BFS: Wields a sword that's as big as her. Granted, it might be a fairly normal sword in the hands of a grown man...
  • Combat Medic: She can be this with the right upgrades. She can upgrade Sir Cador to heal all nearby allies, allowing her to act as a passive healer while still focusing on fighting.
  • Cool Sword: It hosts the spirit of her deceased father, Sir Cador.
  • Family Honor: Aisling's quick messages and starter skin give some implication to the importance of this trope to her.
  • Guardian Entity: The ghost of Aisling's father, Sir Cador acts as this. He made a promise to always protect his daughter and even death couldn't make him break that promise.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: According to the Noble's Daughter skin, Aisling originally had blonde hair.
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: Aisling's talent choices are highly diverse and allow her to fill in for certain roles. Herself and Sir Cador can be a duo of tanky or high damage fighters, or alternatively Aisling can use Sir Cador as an anchor for buffs, debuffs, healing and/or mitigation for her team.
  • Kid Hero
  • Little Miss Badass: A young girl who cuts people up with a giant sword. Some of her skins' names and flavor text imply she's been on the path of knighthood by some degree.
  • Mystical White Hair: It might not be surprising to you that her father's ghost is a constant
  • Not-So-Badass Longcoat: Her coat would probably be a pretty normal one on a fully-grown person. Not that Aisling isn't a Little Miss Badass, just her clearly ill-fitting coat doesn't convey that.
  • Papa Wolf: Sir Cador returned from the afterlife as a ghost to protect his daughter.
  • Swiss Army Hero: She's a very flexible hero and can fill a number of different roles depending on how she's upgraded.
  • Sword Beam: Her sword attack can be upgraded to fire a Spectral Wave projectile.

  • Goo-Goo-Godlike: Pakko is a young frost titan and acts much like a small child. Despite this he's one of the largest cast members, immensely strong and has the power to freeze anything in his path.
  • Human Snowball: An upgrade for his Slip and Slide ability makes him roll around inside a snowball, freezing enemies he hits.
  • Human Snowman: His Focus, Breath of Frigid Air freezes enemies and turns them into snowmen, rendering them immobile and unable to attack, but granting them a shield.

  • Sticky Bomb: His snowball can be upgraded to act like this. On direct hit it sticks to an enemy and explodes after a short delay, stunning and freezing nearby enemies.
