“You can run you can hide, but mental scars will always remain behind.”
“The flaying of one’s dignity, has such a rapturous flavor of cruelty.”
Welcome to the Vainglory Hero Spotlight, today we will be looking at Nyx, a malicious connoisseur of abuse and misery.
A creature spawned from the trauma of abuse and harassment, Nyx seeks out victims of abuse and relishes the suffering of the living. Once she finds her tarnished prey, she seeks to amplify their anguish with further abuse and depravity until she finally gets bored with her plaything. This sadistic appetite never quite satisfies Nyx for long and she returns to the Nether always unfulfilled.
However, Nyx now senses a being trapped between the boundary of the living and the Nether, anchored to limbo by a cursed blade. She now roams the land, snacking on new playthings to ease her boredom as she searches for her coveted toy with which she can gain access to an endless fountain of misery.
Nyx is a sadistic assassin who slashes her way through the battlefield with her unparalleled mobility and area of effect burst damage. In a team fight, she has the terrifying ability to abduct an enemy hero, depriving enemies of their crucial teammate at the wrong moment, while crushing their hopes and sowing doubts of any possible victory.
