    It does seem like Ursa knows Enchantress, so there's that. But to be honest, I think all the heroes are aware of each other on some level. Like Necrolyte and Pudge or Skeleton King and Akasha. Basically, they know each other because of the war or because they're "famous" in some way. Like Enchantress travels the forests while trying to aid the creatures who live there, and that "job" of hers would bring her in close contact with creatures like Ursa. Uh, get what I'm trying to say?
    A true steward of the forest, Aiushtha befriends all within it - from lowly trolls to powerful centaurs.

      I seriously hope that I have finally nailed it. Because the connected heroes section is slowly turning into a big mess. At least html-wise.
      Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

          From Broodmother's lines:
          -Nyx Assassin, I've some of your cousins in my larder.

          Could this mean that Broodmother is somewhat related to Nyx? Why would she has his cousins? They are her prey?

            A possible thing to add: Spectre says "You speak not the speech of the Ascendants" so this might be her Language. O_o (I know that it's just her talking with her talking backwards on top, but still)

              Also, Spirit Breaker knows Leshrac:
              -Leshrac, a fellow walker between the planes.
              -Leshrac, I expected more from a fellow walker between the planes.

              Maybe, they belong to the same race? Planeswalker?

              Also, this one confirmed that Leshrac is also come from another universe.

                Spiders eat other insects. Nyx is an insect. So, presumably, his cousins are insects and Broodmother is eating them (though, she could pretty much eat any organic being).

                So hey, guys, can I get all of your opinions on something? Can anyone give their opinion on what constitutes as a "plane"? 'Cause I feel as if the 7 Hells, the Underscape, and the place where Void came from could all be considered planes.

                  Oh also, if you really want to be extremely precise about those Locations you could add Temple of Mene for Mirana, she talks about it. "I had a vision of this place in the Temple of Mene, but I had no idea it was a prophecy."

                    I'd say that a plane is, basically, a parallel world. So we can't be really sure about the 7 Hells or the Underscape, since both can be located in the world where Dota 2 takes place, while Void can be considered a planeswalker. That would, however, put a scary amount of heroes in that cathegory, so I'll be wise and just make one for the three... and wait for others to be called planeswalkers by the man who clearly knows his planes - the Spirit Breaker.

                    The post is updated yet again, many tanks for reminding me about the Spectre's existance and the Temple of Mene.

                      Well, I'm not so sure the 7 Hells or the Underscape are located on the world. It's just how, in Shadow Demon's lore, the world where Dota takes place is called the "material plane", so...plus, the way he calls Razor a "power in the Underscape". Do you get what I mean? Plus, if parallel worlds count as separate planes of existences, I feel like the 7 Hells and Underscape could be considered planes as well (even though we don't know that much of the Underscape yet, but I don't think it's been mentioned as a location on the world yet).

                      What with Spectre moving up and down levels of existences, it seems like "afterlife"-like areas (such as the Nothl Realm) count as planes as well.

                      In the end, it makes categorizing things easier for us if we can just lump together all the seemingly unrelated characters together as simply being "planeswalkers" (though grouping them whenever possible). Like Zeus.

                        Well they are different types of worlds and planes, Dark Seer's world is definitely a "parallel world", while Leshrac, Spectre and Spirit Breaker seem to have gone/come from the dota 2 world, but from different energy states of it.
                        Spectre comes from a level has a higher energy state and has stabilized to this plane, like Spirit breaker, a being of pure ethereal energy, created a form for here. Leshrac possibly visited a plane similar to the one of Spirit Breaker, since they both seem infused with the same bluish energy.
                        The demons and Underscape just are similar to the material world, maybe different dimensions but still.
                        Anything else is basically parallel worldish. I think xD...
                        Everyone has a story.

                          So what is everyone's stance on Alchemist? Same race as Tinksnipewerk or not?

                            Sniper's > Gnomes/Dawrves
                            Alchemist > Goblin

                            That's my stance. I don't think they even look alike, although it could be similar enough for some people.

                              I am fairly certain that with the quote "Just as higher states of energy seek a lower level, the Spectre known as Mercurial is a being of intense and violent energy who finds herself irresistibly drawn to scenes of strife", they meant the physics phenomenon of energy levels inside atoms, not actually describing the plane that Spectre comes from. Or, more straight forward, I believe that that quote is an analogy, not a description.

                              There is zero evidence either way. Nothing is mentioned in lore nor in voicework, their bodies differ too much (but this is also the case for Tinker/Sniper/Clockwerk), etc, etc. For now, in my opinion, it's best if we don't try to create any king of link between Alchemist and the three cousins.

                                A good addition to this thread would be an already made Dota2 World Map. Credit goes to HippoVic.
                                Since it's already promoted on many places, including this forum, you might as well add it to the post: http://dota2.gk99.com/eng_map/
