NEW hero Suggestion: The Defender
Absolutely nothing in this suggestion is set in stone, names, skills, leveling increases, storylines…etc. I am willing to change anything if someone has a good argument as to why it should be so. However please respect that this is MY suggestion, and also that it’s not likely to ever see the light of day :P . what I mean by that is it’s my little dream and unless what someone else comes up with sounds a lot cooler than what I have, it stays. Enough with the intro’s and on to the ideas.
P.S. The white sections explain the purpose of the content below, reading a white section and its blue section below qualifies you to post regarding that section.
The lands of mankind were once a peaceful place for the most part, humans had their skirmishes but they all were for good reasons and mankind did not kill for the sake of killing. This changed when the hellbourne army first marched. They took down the villages and outpost closest to where their vast evils were organized, burning buildings and bodies alike in their wake. They hacked and they slashed with no regard to the lives they destroyed.
The first village was worst, back when no one understood what was happening, before the forces of good united against evil. One man alone survived the onslaught, the terrible genocide, he came home from a hunting expedition to find his wife and child decapitated, their heads carried as flags to announce the hellbourne presence. He wished only that he could have been killed instead, that he might have born their burden, shared their pain.
From then on, the man hunted the hellbournes agents, killing many a foes who got in his way, but he was only a man, and one man alone cannot stop an army from its march, nor survive its fury. The man knew this, that he might survive a battle, but it would do no good for those who would not.
He sought out a powerful enchantress who fought for the legion, nymphora, the great healer, and asked her to lend him her power. That day she imbued in him the power to shield the weak from death, to share the pain he longed so hard to spare others from.
He forgot his old name that day, and took up his mantle, a defender of freedom, a defender of goodness, a defender of life. In his might, to this day he stands firm, toe to toe with black souled demons dragged from the darkest pits of hell, and to this day, he has not lost…..
The selection of skills currently in preparation for use with the character.
I fully expect all of these to get balanced, changed, rewritten and many, many, more abusive things to be done to them, I do NOT however, expect them to be criticized without suggestion, please for the sake of all that is good in hon, tell me what is wrong with it, not just that its wrong.

Skill Combos (IE Synergy):
The point of this section is to show the synergy that the characters skills have, this may be removed to conserve space if it grows too large or is deemed not useful.
Soul link enemies for team fights, and to prep for ring of fire
Soul link allies to dissipate some damage before it hits the health reserve
Ring of fire for traps, escapes and initiations
General good items to use with the skill and stat build of the character.
Stout shield x2
Electrician: Electric shield + life reserve = never dying
Carries in general: a carry with a tanks hp is everyone’s problem
Jereziah: Immunity on the Defender will help protect his target
Tempest/magmus/behemoth/kotf: aoes are amplified by soul link
EX/ Tempest lvl 3 ult does 140 magic damage/second to targets in the middle of his vortex. For a max total of 560 damage per target, if there are 5 targets and they have all been hit by lvl 4 soul link, they will each take 1008 damage from elemental void + soul link
Legionaire: his ult can go through the life reserve to kill low hp heroes
