The Fire [July Contest: Metamorphosis]

Name: The Fire

Layman's Lore:

Mt. Joerlak is the mythical mountain of the Magnoceros, the most beautiful yet savage creature there was. It's sudden eruption was thought to be nature being nature. However years after it has happened did the true nature of it's eruption came about. The Caldera now no more than an almost flat crater has little to no lava in it, it is dead yet in it's center lays a rock, too perfect to be one.

It was collected by rock collectors to be sold. It was brought by an aristocrat to be a part of his collection. One day it hatched, bewildered the aristocrat took care of the creature. However this is no mere pet, its savagery became apparent as is its growth. Growing exponentially and becoming more of a beast, it burned the house of the aristocrat as well as the city it is in. No one could have anticipated a creature, rivaling the strength of most eldwurms. No one is sure what happen to the creature, but one thing is certain…it is Fire, it is….Death.

The Fire is a strength melee hero whose ultimate Evolution provide his basic abilities: Ember, Jumping Slam and Bestial Roar bonuses as the ultimate is evolved. Starting from a tiny, almost harmless creature to a ferocious giant capable of dealing and withstanding damage.


The Fire will have multiple appearance through the course of the game, all dependent on evolution's level. His base appearance is a lizard like creature similar to Pokemon's Charmander with a model size on par with Hoodwink.On Evolution Level 1, he becomes somewhat similar to an Allosaur gaining the size of Level 1 Grow of tiny, this appearance is consistent until you choose which ability to take to Level 5. If it's Ember his appearance becomes something like Godzilla, If Jumping Slam it'll be King Kong minus the ape face and it's Bestial Roar he'll be like Venusaur but instead of a plant it's a Volcano, all of these will increase his size by 100%.Upon getting the Scepter, his Level 5 Ember form will now also spikes on it, his Level 5 Jumping Slam form will have two additional arms and Level 5 Bestial Roar gives him and extra volcano opening, these changes however are only active when upon casting their respective abilities.

It will have a unique animation upon going to level 6 where an egg will always drop on it's death place, it does nothing on it's respawn location and is purely cosmetic

Author's Notes:

So this is my entry for the july contest, The Fire. Heavily inspired by Pokemon I tried to be a bit more creative with the transformation and all rather than a linear path.

Feedback is always welcome
