"Here to serve."

Orthros is a strength-based tank hero of the Celestial faction. He briefly stops time to set up time traps and can increase his max health as time passes.

His ultimate ability "Suspension" allows him to briefly freeze time and target the weakest enemy on the battlefield.


Everything in our world is temporary. Cities and empires fall and are forgotten under the dust, Swords and plowshares alike rust and crumble. Even mountains, seemingly eternal to the mortals whose lives are so brief by comparison, are worn down to their roots under countless dawns. Only the gods escape what for all else is inevitable. They stand alongside time itself as the sole inheritors of the infinite.

Before the celestial realm of the gods was ravaged by the forces of darkness, there stood a glimmering clock tower, crafted by the heavenly carpenter Ansiel. The clock in the tower, however, didn't simply tell the time. Rather, time followed its dictate. Minutes and hours and days marched dutifully behind the turning hands of the divine artifact. Ansiel's skill was such that the clock was imbued with a sort of sentience that developed and expanded as time went by. Dura herself honored the clock-entity with a name. Orthros. In the first battle against the Hypogeans, Orthros fought alongside Dura. It was when she fell that Orthros discovered his ability to literally turn back the hands of time. She stood again as blood from the fallen returned to wounds and eyes previously closed in death opened. Armies sheathed their swords and marched backwards into the gates that had spilled them forth. All but the gods themselves were unaware that they had been given a second chance.

Dura fell again, and again time was reversed. In each iteration, she fell, and the outcome only became increasingly dire for the forces of light and life. In a final bid for victory, Orthros took time back to before the invasion had even begun. Dura commanded that this time, he leave it. Her fate was her fate, and no amount of meddling would change that.

Since then, Orthros has taken little notice in the affairs of the mortal realms. For eons, he steadily maintained the flow of the temporal stream and did little else. It wasn't until learning of another entity with powers similar to his own that he stirred. A demon has been blinking in and out of various points in the continuum to change past and future. Time, however, is the domain of Orthros and Orthros alone. He will not allow another to twist it to their own designs.

"Inexorable, inevitable, but not immutable."
