A deranged inventor, Phaidon is reckless in his never-ending attempts to revolutionize warfare.

As the lead inventor on the Children of Talos project, Phaidon never truly forgave himself when their uprising became violent.

Gadrus

Physical Supportive Artillery

ABILITIES

  • Roaring Axes

AWAKENING

Chione's MarkIce Daggers

Tyrant's Predation now additionally applies mortal wounds to enemies, reducing all healing by 50% for 9 seconds.

The raging warlord Gadrus bears little resemblance to his oceanic Olympian father.

When his father Poseidon asked him to govern the northern trade route provinces of Atlantis, Gadrus knew he would never be the chosen son impressive enough to rule the Lord of the Sea's beloved island; that glory belonged to his twin brother Atlas. It was at this moment Gadrus knew the threads of his fate had woven into a story that would change the course of Atlantean history. He would unite his troops, call upon his fearsome war lion, and with the strength of an army he would take the throne of Atlantis from his unworthy brother.

    In a fit of nihilistic blood rage, Eryx imbues a crossbow bolt with a toxic payload of his own cursed blood.

AWAKENING

Chione's MarkCold Snap

Bearing the weight of passing from this world to the next before returning, Eryx has seen more of life and death than most can claim.

It is a rare Hero that walks among the living yet has glimpsed the world of the dead. Slain before attaining the true glory he believed he could grasp, Eryx made his passage to the underworld as all fallen men must do. Arriving in Hades, he looked into the face of the welcoming shades and, beset with fear of being lost to history, fled back to the world of the living. Upon return it became clear that he had become forever corrupted by the gaze of the shades and the darkness of the underworld’s embrace.

Through great focus and dedicated study, Sobekos honed his skills to the point of rising above even the elder priests of the Temple of Daybreak where he practiced. Eventually he felt it was time to leave the Temple to find his way in the world, knowing it was likely he would never return.

Having traveled to the farthest reaches of the astral plane, Mayar has arrived to New Atlantis pursuing an inscrutable agenda only he seems to understand.

The Lunar Mystic's unfocused gaze falls perpetually inward. Some speculate that his stellar journey has granted him a unique ability to see beyond the mere physical world. But others whisper that his mind's eye has retreated in the face of the cold, uncaring forces of the void. The truth is likely a combination of both.

AWAKENING

Chione's MarkHymn of Winter

Permanently gains 20% Team Cooldown Reduction. (purge immune)

The playful Ariadne was once celebrated as the bard of the gods, until she stumbled upon one of Briarus’s hunts. His prey, a young unicorn, was a life she could not see diminished. She stepped through the astral threshold and paralyzed Briarus with an ethereal lullaby. Her intervention saved the innocent creature, but forever cast her from the realm of immortals.

While she was ousted from her divine home, she retained the ability to mimic the sounds and voices of the celestial realm. With her enchanted chime, Ariadne amplifies her songs with otherworldly resonances. The force of her music can either hearten her allies’ spirits or devastate her mortal foes.

AWAKENING

Misunderstood and mocked by her own kind, Sybil has rebelliously chosen life among the mortals.

It was well known that only those Djinn foolish enough to become bound in servitude remained in the material world. But Sybil saw the signs. A great reckoning was coming. One that would shake even the foundations of the mighty City of Brass. She would not sit idly by while weakling mortals were allowed to shape the hands of fate. No, she would do something no Djinn had ever done before. She would trap herself in the mortal world, and fulfill her destiny among the challengers for New Atlantis.

Chione's MarkChilling Incantation

Following 3 basic attacks, his next attack steals 30% for Energy Generation for 3seconds.

Following what he considers to be a divine star of providence, Melchior arrives in Atlantis armed with an enchanted quill and inkwell, ready to transcribe its history, people, and their battles into the mystical runes he employs in combat to debilitate his foes.

The large scroll on Melchior’s back contains the most extensive archive of magical runes in all of Atlantis. Each rune has been written in the memory of a great hero, a loyal friend, a fierce opponent, a lost comrade. By preserving these memories into the runes that Melchior safeguards in his scroll, he can chronicle the history of the lands he travels. Only he knows how to translate the esoteric runes and his reasons for keeping them remain a mystery.

A hot shot pilot with years of experience, Hadrian is the highest scoring aviator in New Atlantis, boasting his confirmed kills by applying victory decal skulls directly onto his beetle. With renewing turmoil in the kingdom, Hadrian is yet again conscripted into service and has high hopes of once more serving alongside his old compatriot, the Vainglorious Champion Leandros.

Hadrian flies into action riding a rhinoceros beetle mounted with a unique type of deadly repeating ballista known as the Polybolos. Enemies that oppose him on the battlefield find themselves buried in a hail of furious bolts, followed by a distant sound that can only be described as ominous buzzing.

AWAKENING

Chione's MarkBitter Magic

Permanently sacrifices 15% Magical Defense and Physical Defense for 75% increased Magical Ability Power. (purge and cleanse immune)

Hero Showcase

Having mastered communing with dark spirits at an early age, Sagango was directed to leave his island nation in the west, as incorporeal beings often want something from those that call them and dark spirits always want more essence.

This sojourn led him into the eastern deserts where he encountered an opposing high priest of the Daybreak Oracle. Sagango petitioned the dark spirits, offering to slay the priest in exchange for more power…and they agreed. In that moment, he was able to unleash a new kind of curse that ravaged the priest with a deadly malady. Following through with the pact, he captured the high priest’s soul within a doll-shaped effigy and fashioned their skull into a fetish for his staff, which Sagango now uses to bolster the dark spirits he calls upon.

  • Thunderstroke

    The air around Nyx begins to pulse with remnant energy as she loosens a stream of knocked arrows until suddenly her foe is struck with enervation.

AWAKENING

Chione's MarkPiercing Chill

Deviant Shadowbind now stuns the target for 5 seconds and purges all buffs.

Impertinent and willful, Nyx the Bricolage Ranger has a do-it-yourself attitude and moves to the beat of her own drum. With the tips of her mohawk hair dyed deep purple to match her glam face paint, she brings a counter-culture style to the battlefield.

The progeny of an ancient race that resettled above ground in the Peaks of Areion, the elven Lazuli are born with an affinity for the arcane that tints their skin a pale blue and blanches their hair. Although customary for young magic users to apprentice with a sorcerer, Nyx balked at tradition and impulsively joined a motley crew of rangers hunting centaurs for sport in the Dryadic Wilds. Impatient to join the fun, she conjured a crystalline bow from the ether capable of siphoning combat performance from her targets and leapt onto the field like it was a mosh pit.

AWAKENING

Chione's MarkCold Refreshments

Upon an ally death, Tiandao immediately cleanses all allies.

Without the sun's warm embrace, the world would surely fall into eternal slumber under the cold moonlight and so Tiandao has journeyed from the astral plane to bring Atlantis a new dawn. His divine solar mantras cleanse the faithful and light their path to victory.

The Solar Monastic and Lunar Mystic have always cycled through the astral plane, just as the sun and moon cycle through the sky, but this precious balance has been thrown off with Mayar's sojourn to the mortal realm. After witnessing the plight of the Atlanteans, Tiandao invoked the ultimate law of Sol, dictating that the celestial brothers must converge into an eclipse, ensuring that the land is renewed and the cosmic ballet goes on. He now seeks a way to incite this stellar event and bring peace to both worlds.
