DISCUSSING CHARACTERS AND EVENTS IN 3H. DON’T READ IF YOU WISH TO AVOID ANY POTENTIAL SPOILERS.
'Sup, bois. After the conclusion of my last batch of units and some downtime, I’m back with some more unit suggestions. This week, I have a suggestion for a new Mythic unit, and next week I’ll be catching up on some some overdue requests.
Rhea: Immaculate One
“I once walked this world as Seiros, the warrior… and defeated the Fell King Nemesis. Now, here I stand, facing one who wields the same sword as he… The fate you have chosen is also the same as his… To die in torment upon my sword, as the very lifeblood you have forsaken spills onto the earth!”
Rhea is the Archbishop of the Church of Seiros and is in truth the modern identity of the fabled saint Seiros herself. She guides the world u der the guise of faith, longing for the day she can resurrect her mother, Sothis.
Weapon: Sword of Seiros (Sword) - "MGT: 16.
When unit deals damage to foe during combat, restores 10 HP to unit. (Triggers even if 0 damage is dealt.)
At start of turn, grants [Dark Killer] to unit and adjacent allies.
[Dark Killer]: If foe has a Dark blessing, unit deals +5 damage. If unit initiates combat, foe cannot counter."
Special: Draconic Aura - “Boosts Atk by 30%.”
A: Death Blow 4 - "If unit initiates combat, grants Atk +8 during combat.
B: Seiros Shield - “At the start of every second turn, restores 10 HP. Against foes with Dark blessing, neutralizes foe’s bonuses (from skills like Fortify, Rally, etc.) during combat.”
C: Savage Blow - “If unit initiates attack, foes within 2 spaces of target take 7 damage after combat.”
Bored out of my mind at work, I contemplated making a draft for Seteth. However, I decided that I should probably do Rhea first.
To that extent, I thought I would try something different with her Sword of Seiros, playing on her role as Archbishop and natural enemy of Those Who Slither.
Sword of Seiros: Rhea’s sword. As an enemy of those in the dark and the leader of the Church, I thought that giving her an area buff giving allies the advantage over Dark-blessed enemies seemed like a unique idea, so I wanted to try it out and float the idea by y’all. Her sword also restores health per turn and with damage, so I opted to give her a Sol Lance effect as well, since it is a Mythic weapon.
Draconic Aura: As Sothis’ daughter and, therefore, a dragon, it seemed like a good filler. I wanted to reference Sothis by giving Rhea Sirius as her special, but I figured that I should probably leave that as Sothis’ signature special.
Death Blow: One of the skills that Rhea wields as the Immaculate one. I wanted to give her Ancient Dragon’s Wrath for adaptive damage; but I’d already crafted the Sword and Shield of Seiros and I try to avoid coming up with more than two skills per unit. I also considered Swift Sparrow 3, but Rhea is not particularly fast as a character.
Seiros Shield: Rhea’s shield. In 3H, it grants protections, regen, and damage mitigation against beasts. I considered making it more notable as a skill in Heroes, but what would I scale the mitigation off of? Her ATK?
Savage Blow: I wasn’t really sure what to use here, so I defaulted to Savage Blow given her damaging role. I considered Infantry Flash or Breath, or maybe a Wave skill; but nothing I can think of really seems to click as an appropriate fit.
Thoughts on my idea? Comments, maybe? Concerns? Lemme know, feedback is welcomed. If you have someone you want me to take a crack at, feel free to ask that, too.
