    Terrorblade’s Lore Brainstorm

    How do you imagine his lore to be? Even tiny bits of ideas say it here like what is his favorite underwear color and why and how does it connect with others around him etc. So that his lore is as rich as it can be! and VALVe can take out the best juicy bits off here or ignore us completely and create a completely different lore. xD

    This is how I imagine Terrorblade’s lore to be. I am not a good writer (Grammer sucks) so the story is freaking long, and I don't use fanciful words. This is not a finish story, but it's the general idea of how I imagine terrorblade lore is.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "As the Dead God crusaders pursuit all living things relentlessly, everyday became a nightmare for all the living things nearby. One day a village heard that the Dead God followers were coming directly towards their peaceful village. The mother of the twins planed to flee to the mountain of Turstarkuri. The village was calm before the storm. Before the sun even rises, red dark blood was painted across their village and inhuman screams filled the skies. The Dead God followers attack has already begun. As the villagers disintegrated, pulled apart, mutated and turned inside out left and right, the two brothers ran to find his mother and witnessed her been torn to shreds. Frightened and lost, the two brothers ran as fast as their feet could take to escape from their forsaken village. A blast of pure darkness slashes across the younger of the two brothers nearly hitting him. The pure dark raw energies were so forceful it sent the brothers flying. The younger one hit the ground hard and fell unconscious. The Dead God crusaders came toward the youthful beings. The older one begged to let his younger brother go. The Crusaders laughed manically as they say there is no escape. Dead God crusaders started casting their horrendous demonic spells towards the younger one. Dark energies flashed across the morning skies and a thunderous roar filled the air. The older brother stood in front of his younger. The anger, fuelled by his mother’s death and his love for his younger brother, absorbed all the dark energies and turned it against the Dead God Crusaders. Surprised and shocked at the same time by his newly found powers, he carried his brother all the way to the temples of Turstarkuri.

    And from that day, he fights for his soul as the dark magic course through his blood tainting and corrupting him slowly but surely. Every day, the older brother transformed a little and demonic signs start appearing throughout his whole body. As the realization of him turning into a demon is inevitable, he ran far away as possible from his younger brother who is now becoming an acolyte. To this day, he fights with the demon inside him. Sometimes succeeding in driving the demon back however never completely and sometimes the demon take his body completely transforming him into a horrible monster that obliterates everything in his path. Through sheer will and obsession with trying to save his soul, the now known Terrorblade the Soul Keeper searches for other souls to sate the ever hungry Dead God from taking his."

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    His voicework I imagine is him and the demon inside him. Sometimes he will talk, sometimes the demon. But when he uses metamorphosis, the demon voice takes it completely.

    One of his death lines by antimage can be like "Thank you brother...(him) NOOOOO, I'LL BE BACK (Demon)" etc.

    Thanks for reading the awfully constructed paragraphs and words. If someone or mod would like to edit it so that it is easier to read, be my guest. Just want DotA 2 Lore to be as rich and addictive as possible!

    tldr; this is Brainstorm Thread for Terrorblade's Lore. Post any kind of ideas (Even tiny trivial details) you want or imagine it to be. Maybe VALVe will pick some of the best out and put it all together!

    It fits quite well with Anti-Mage's lore. However, it needs some corrections (grammatical errors, e.g., "The older brother stood in front of his younger brother.") but nevertheless, it's written quite well.

    Also, with regarding to his death line (to Anti-Mage), it feels somewhat out of place, as Anti-Mage's kill message(s) are quite, for lack of a better word, "brutal" or ladened with so much anger towards Terrorblade. However, since these lines are still unused, they may replace it with something more forgiving or something of regret. That remains to be seen though.

      I like your idea, but I seriously imagine Terrorblade to be "power-hungry twin", someone who seeks for extreme demonic power until he is consumed by it. Pretty much who he is in his DotA lore.

        Yeah English is not my first language. As for the voice line, I was trying to say that Terrorblade left Anti-mage without telling why he left. Also Anti-mage didn't know his brother saved him from the Dark Gods crusaders. So Anti-mage doesn't know the truth and just have blind rage for his brother's corrupted self. I guess I didn't explain enough, but my lore is already too long so I tried to trim it down a bit. Thanks for replying!

        By all means, feel free to write your own lore if you want! I was going for more of a heart breaking lore since we have many power hungry dire heroes. But thanks for replying!

          We don't have that many actually. A few of them were pretty evil from the start, some work out of revenge, duty, or just proving that they are the best, but we hardly have any "corrupted" heroes, who started out decent enough but went mad for power. The only one I can think of so far is Lion, and maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe Warlock, barely. We'll see how it plays out, but according to the AM lines, it'll probably go more in that direction. Could be wrong though. I like the lore well enough in any case, just doubt that's the way it'll work out. Best leave tragedy to the Radiant sided anyway I think, it fits them better.
          Everyone has a story.

            sounds like the Manga Naruto about the brothers between Sasuke and Itachi
