Thaeton, the Black Crown

Lore:His followers called him mad, but none had the courage to defy him. Tirelessly, they trained in his armies, and collected strange materials for his ultimate plan. The king-mage Thaeton would create a spell on a scale the world had not seen before. Summoning something from one reality or another was child’s play to him, but he was going to carve a tunnel. A permanent hole in reality, so he and his armies could march into the lowest of the nine hells, slay its horned king, and Thaeton would take his seat upon the brass throne of Hell. Alas, something went wrong. When the day for his ultimate triumph finally arrived, the tunnel did not open. In its place, a maw formed, screaming at the foolish mage. Thaeton felt his flesh burn, his crown growing so hot it set his hair on fire. He screamed in agony, and after a few, age-long seconds, it was over. Where the mage-king once stood, was now a pile of ashes, and all that was left of him, was his crown, now warped and blackened from the hellish flames. The crown was sold soon after to a young wizard’s apprentice with more money than sense. One day, in arrogant half-jest, he decided to put it on. Immediately, his young, weak soul was torn apart by a darkness slithering out of the crown itself.“Well then…” The boy heard whispering inside his head, as he was slowly clinging to the last of his consciousness. “Let’s try that again.”

Q: Dark Grasp
Thaeton casts out his shadow, creating a claw of dark energy at a target location. After a formation time, it comes towards him, disappearing at his location. Enemies hit along the way are dealt magic damage. The first hero it hits is also dragged along.
AoE: 250
Movement Speed: 1200
Damage: 100/185/270/355
Formation time: 0.9 seconds
Cast Range: 1200/1300/1400/1500
Manacost: 120/130/140/150
Cooldown: 25/22/19/16 seconds

The crown’s shadow seems to ignore the light sources near it, simply twisting and reshaping on a whim.

E: Sanguine Barrier
Thaeton sacrifices a percentage of his own, or his wearer’s current max health to create a barrier that absorbs all types of damage, and damage is lowered by magic resistance and armour. Enemies are slowed as long as the barrier holds. Health loss caused by this ability is never lethal.
Health loss: 10/15/20/25% max HP
Barrier HP: 100/200/300/400 + 12/18/24/30% max HP
Movement Speed Slow: 10/20/30/40%
Slow AoE: 300
Barrier Duration: 16 seconds
Manacost: 90/100/110/120

Thaeton has, over the years become significantly more casual with how he treats his wearers' bodies.

E: Soulrender
Passively, Thaeton’s attacks apply a debuff on enemy units. They suffer damage over time, and any unit that attacks them gains lifesteal and increased attack speed.
Damage over time: 8/16/24/32
Lifesteal: 8/16/24/32%
Bonus Attack Speed: 20/30/40/50
Debuff Duration: 2 seconds

The incantations the crown whispers cut into the very souls of those that oppose him.

R: Coronation
Thaeton equips himself to an allied hero. While equiped, his wearer gains bonus health and bonus status resistance. Both of them gain bonus attack damage and spell amplification. Thaeton may attack targets near the wearer, and can cast spells and use items as well. Any life he gains during this duration is granted to his wearer instead. If his wearer is silenced, stunned, disarmed, muted or broken, he is as well. If the wearer dies, so does Thaeton. Thaeton cannot leave the wearer if the wearer has taken damage in the last three seconds. Goes on cooldown when Thaeton leaves the wearer. Lasts indefinitely.
Cast Range: 200
Bonus Health: 50/75/100% of Thaeton’s Max Health
Bonus Status Resistance: 30/40/50%
Bonus Damage: 25/50/75
Bonus Spell Amp: 10/15/20%
Manacost: 100
Cooldown: 90/75/60 seconds

While a weak souls is simply destroyed by the presence of Thaeton, a strong one can sustain for long enough to create something that resembles teamwork.

Upgrades Dark Grasp. Double-clicking the ability now creates six Dark Grasps in a circle around him or his wearer. Each pushes 700 units away. Enemies cannot be hit by more than one of these. While in Coronation, Thaeton gains +250 attack range.
