  • My Attempt at: Icarus the Phoenix's Lore

    The sight of a Phoenix is one such claim never taken seriously. Their self-dilapidating nature has been the cause of death for many of Savviah’s Phoenixes. However, this is not due to mindless disregard, but rather a result of their tenacious need to protect their offspring in self-sacrificing demeanor. Nevertheless, it has not always been this way. Following the incidents of the Exodus Excessum many fugitives of the Narrow Maze, desperate for a second chance at life, began ravaging the nests of the Savvian Phoenixes in hopes of finding a fabled Phoenix feather; an item believed to grant one the power of resurrection once consumed. Unbeknownst to the prisoners, such ability was only possible among the Phoenixes and no such item existed, however the carnage continued and countless phoenixes were killed trying to save their own. Enraged, Icarus the Altus Phoenix rose to the skies, scorched the defilers to ashes and soared with gracious speed, saving as many of his kin as he could. Despite slowly growing weaker with each feat, he persevered. With still an entire legion remaining, he enveloped himself in the sun’s energy and slowly descended whilst emanating an intense aura of searing heat, leaving his enemies smouldered and he himself completely revitalised.

    Quick notes:
    First of all, sorry it's so long. Anyway, I wanted to give Icarus some sort of epithet, so I called him the Altus Phoenix (Altus meaning great). Also, I aimed to rival himself with Necro'lic so I tied him in with his story (or at least, tried to)

    I'm sorry to ask this, but why?
    Phoenix has no gameplay connections to Visage. In only extremely rare occasions they are picked in the same game, and I don't see any relation between both heroes. From Phoenix gameplay, I think they never touch each other.

    Btw, I like the text.

      I'm confused, when did any hero heroes have any gameplay connections to anyone prior to DotA 2? Unless I'm mistaken, Phoenix isn't even out yet either, so it's not impossible for such a clash between the two to occur. I chose this specific rivalry due to the fact that I find Visage represents death, suffering and abysmal depths and Phoenix represents rebirth, replenishment and sky.

      Btw, I like the text.
      Thanks ~
