Hey, this is Ciderhelm and welcome to the Vainglory Hero Spotlight, today we will be looking at Seyton, a demagogue caster possessed by a demonic entity.
A scholar of the esoteric arts, Seyton willingly offered up his flesh to a demon named Dismas in exchange for the demon’s power and knowledge. With his bowels hosting the malefic creature, Seyton promised the demon offerings in exchange for magical powers he desperately craved.
To fulfill his contract, he attacked an entire city killing countless people while sowing hatred in the heart of a father who Seyton unknowingly left alive with only a grisly cursed scar across his chest.
Seyton now wonders the land looking for more victims to offer to Dismas, knowing full well that should he fail to placate the demon, than he will be consumed.
Seyton is a mage who curses large numbers of enemies with an array of demonic spells. When his abilities are combined at the right moment and time, he can hold back groups of enemies. Should he fall in battle, enemies will have to contend with the demonic Dismas, a horrifying and overbearing brute with high durability.
