View Full Version : Agonistes - The Artist

10-12-2009, 10:57 AM
Concept for the thinking mans hero. I love clive barkers work and any other fans will know of Agonistes, although ive portrayed him in a more PG sense here. Feed back would be much appreciated guys and gals!

Intelligence Based Hero

Concept: The concept for Agonistes is a hero that can turn his opponents against themselves. With a slow base speed but most of his abilities requiring him to be in melee range. He requires thinking and is a strong ganker and 1v1er but against groups he has very few uses.Plus im a huge Clive Barker fan and Agonistes is my favorite character in the Tortured Souls collection.:)

Background: A being of nightmare and myth, Agonisites was thought to be nothing more than a tale before the war. Legends tell of an artist gone mad, selling his soul to the Hellbourne, for never ending life so that he could carry on his art. His art, sculpting. His clay, flesh. With the coming of the war the soldiers of Legion have found that he is no mere legend and that have more to fear than just death, for the Hellbourne have called upon this “Artist” to continue his ghastly work on the battlefield.

Visual: Looking mostly human, has many blades grafted directly onto his arms. His face is scarred and torn. Draped in a blood soaked coat and carrying all manner of small blades and hooks.

If there is no enemy present to tlelport to he will stay where he was.

Final Summary: Ive given him a slow base speed for a good reason, trying to make full use of his slowing capability and that you have to be mindful to keep Blank Canvas up a lot, otherwise hes gonna fall behind. I made him an Intell hero because he needs the large mana pool. He has a massive damage output at higher levels.
