Imperium

Archer

 

Without neglecting the worthiness of other heroes, it would be good to take some time to tell you about the heroine popularly known as the Archer. Rumor has it that she was awarded this nickname as a child when she showed astounding skill with a large bow.

The strictness of the lord’s family did not permit him to marry one of the Prime Inductor attendants, but he broke with tradition, and his lover and their newborn baby girl moved into the castle. Unfortunately, the girl’s mother soon died, and the child was raised by her father. She grew quickly and realized the power of her beauty and intelligence early on. She accomplished many things in life, but her main hobby was archery. The high-tech device that the Archer uses so masterfully in battle was given to her by her father when she came of age. Unfortunately, that birthday really was the end of her childhood.

A treacherous neighbor attacked the lord’s land. Perhaps the villain planned on quickly snatching some neighboring land, with the support of the other lords, to avoid the wrath of the Emperor.

But the fighting was long and hard. Although the girl's father was killed, the surviving troops and civilian refugees fled to the forest. The Archer and those under her command riddled the enemy soldiers with arrows, but the invaders were too many. The lordship was drowning in blood, and the girl decided on a desperate plan: she snuck into the captured castle to attempt to resurrect the fallen heroes. But the knowledge she had gleaned from her mother’s books and from watching her father was not enough. The Prime Inductor exploded... turning the girl into a heroine.

The Emperor himself revived her, when the Imperial Guard intervened to stop the neighboring lord’s invasion and punish the traitors responsible. Now, the grateful Archer fights for the ideals of the Imperium.

Talents

Enchanted Arrows

The heroine’s attacks and class talents simultaneously inflict both physical and magic damage.

Flurry Strike

The heroine draws her bow and releases arrows in the specified direction. The arrows inflict physical and magic damage on all enemies in their path. After the heroine learns the Suppressive Shots talent, enemies struck by the Flurry Strike are slowed down for a few seconds. This talent also lowers enemies’ Agility when the heroine is on Native Terrain. The decrease in Agility depends on the heroine’s Intellect.

Redeploy

The heroine moves to the specified location. She moves much more quickly when on Native Terrain. After the heroine learns the Advantageous Position talent, her Cunning is increased for a few seconds after moving. After the heroine learns Active Defense, she can use the Redeploy talent even when immobilized. Before moving, the heroine is healed of 1 negative effect and, when she arrives at her new location, she is given a shield which for a few seconds absorbs some of the damage dealt to her.

Perfect Mark

The heroine’s attacks deal additional damage to the enemy, equal to a portion of the attacking enemy’s maximum Health. The additional damage cannot be greater than a certain maximum level, which depends on the heroine’s Strength or Intellect, whichever is greater.

Decisive Shot

The heroine wounds the enemy hero with the lowest health (within a large radius), dealing him physical and magic damage. After the heroine learns Dual Shot, she wounds the two heroes with the lowest Health.
