Is Phantom Assassin dead?

  • Is Phantom Assassin dead?

    Now, this suspicion occurred to me for a few reasons:

    1. Her face is of unnatural color.
    2. She is one of the "Veiled Sisters"/"Sisters of the Veil" and has Phantom in her name. The veil is referenced by Visage as afterlife, or something in that regard. So either the Veiled Sisters is a play of something close to deathbringers, either an implication that it's some sort of unity between dead assassins.
    3. Death Prophet states: "In my prophecies, I always see Phantom Assassin… dead.". Always implies that she sees Phantom Assassin multiple times and... dead. Which would also imply that Phantom Assassin is actually undead.


    Maybe the mentioned divination process in her lore to become a "Sister of the Veil" is actually some sort of necromantic-ish ritual?

    What do you think?

    You really can't read the lore yourself? This is literally the first line:

    Pitted against the very society that condemned her to a life of Undeath

      I was talking about DotA 2 lore. That's the reason why it's in DotA 2 dev.

      Your ignorance is baffling.

          Phantom Assassin is the phantom of an assassin. The grand magus says so.
          Case closed, move along.

            you sir knew something that msot of us know xD
            If it wasn't for LoL, there'd be no Dota2.
            If it wasn't for DotA, there'd be no LoL
            If there was no AoS, there'd be no DotA.
            It's a genre:
            Just because its different doesn't mean its wrong.
            Just because its the same, doesn't mean its wrong.

                  Personally, I think the Dota 1 lore is pretty terrible writing for the most part. I'm not saying Dota 2's lore is fantastic, but I do think the writing quality is, on average, better than Dota 1's.

                  That's not Visage-specific. That's not even Dota-specific. That metaphor's been around a while.

                    The use of that phrase is telling.

                        Okay, and now back to the topic.

                        I'm brought to believe that the way she looks is because of rituals or some other sort of occult dingdong. That would make the most sense - perhaps she isn't fully alive, yes, she refers to herself as immaterial and doesn't want to be seen dispersing (scraping the bottom of the barrel here), but her being dead is... well, I don't know, a stretch. Now, I myself thought she was probably undead, but that's until they gave her pupils. Death Prophet is just begging for shades to materiailze on her face with that post-kill one-liner. It's probably nothing.
                        Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

                          If you check the Blur icon, you would notice that there her eyes are quite white, similar to Death Prophet, Pudge... and pretty much any other undead.

                          Also: Phantom_Assassin.png

                          I don't see any pupils here. Her whole eye is of teal-whitish color.

                            The Blur icon and the hero icon are both outdated. She actually does have eyes on her animated portrait.

                              There is a chance she is between the Living and the Undead.
