Waiting in the mist, the evil reflection of Nemora awaits its next victim.
Demonic Entity is an evil clone of Nemora born from the leftover energy of the shadow that had once corrupted her. She serves as the main boss of the Phantom of Horror's Eve event and one of the minibosses in The Twisted Realm. Although not able to be attacked directly, she summons Dreaf minions that can be defeated for creepy candy.
The scourge of the invader has withered great swathes of the forest. In glades and groves, the rot spreads, bringing death with it. The woodland’s defenders are not immune to this corruption, and Nemora discovered this the hard way. Her motivations for protecting her home were originally as pure and noble as any other Wilder’s, but one encounter after another with the enemy gradually twisted her heart. She had seen so much blight, so much death, that her desire to protect the lives of the things around her turned into a fuming hatred of those responsible for cutting so much of it short. She began fighting to destroy rather than to preserve. She lost sight of her purpose, and the corruption took hold. With each passing day she grew more maniacal, turning the evil of the invaders around on them. She became an insatiable huntress, stalking her Hypogean prey through the dark woods, spear slick with gore. As she butchered her hapless quarry, an ever smaller light dwindled in her. She had become something else, and if she didn’t retake control, she would be lost forever. The rot threatened her very being. Sensing that her very essence stood on the edge of a great abyss, she began to muster her resolve.
She dug deep into the memories of the land and life. There appeared a vision of a hulking Treant, similarly afflicted. His form was twisted with pain and rot, but a great strength still kindled within him. She recognized him as Ulmus and sought the wisdom he and Arden had imparted on her. The vision shifted. She saw Ulmus struggle with the corruption and finally expel it. She saw the new buds and leaves sprout from his now healthy limbs. This gave her the inspiration she needed.
“I am the healer. I am the conduit of life. I am she who unbreaks the broken. The vitality of the forest is mine to direct. I cannot wither. I cannot be consumed.”
Her consciousness kicked and tumbled its way back in control. The evil in her began to slough away like a mouldering cloak. As it lost ground, she felt a new energy rising. She could feel every pulse. The blood in her veins sang with strength and triumph. Wisps of darkness, darker than the night, coalesced into a shadow which sprang away from the healer and disappeared through the trees. She breathed a sigh of relief. She was back.
The shadow rested, hiding in the dark places during the day and gaining shape during the night. It had been powerful enough that it would not disperse, nor would it be satisfied with a lesser host than the one it had previously inhabited. It began to more and more closely resemble the healer who had ousted it. A macabre mockery of one so pure. Upon fully regaining its form, its eyes flashed red. It looked into the benighted wood and smiled. The hunt was back on.
“This time, no one escapes.”
|Maligned Energy||Demonic Entity is unable to be attacked as she slowly recovers energy. Once her energy is fully recovered, Nemora restores a large percentage of health to all her allies and simultaneously increases their attack speeds for several seconds.|
|Baneful Guard||A shield is given to the ally with the highest attack rating, gradually restoring their energy while it is active.|
|Fiendish Underling||Demonic Entity summons a Dreaf once every 10 seconds until there are a total of 5 Dreafs on the battlefield, with each new Dreaf that is summoned being larger and stronger than the previous one. The Dreafs crit ratings will also be increased the lower their health falls, up until it reaches a maximum of 100%.|
