Hamzah "Hera" El-Baher (born October 14, 1999) is a Canadian Age of Empires I (inactive), Age of Empires II and Age of Empires IV (inactive) player who is currently playing for GamerLegion.

Biography[edit]

Hera became known as an excellent player around 2017. He initially played for Heresy in the Escape Champions League, but joined Aftermath for the conclusion of the tournament and finished second. His first breakout performance in 1v1 tournaments was Nili's Apartment Cup 3 where he finished second behind TheViper. He made the finals of Hidden Cup 3 just two months later.

Hera joined Tempo Storm in 2020, and although he played with them for only a year, he won Hidden Cup 4 in an incredibly tough bracket, which was at the time his biggest tournament performance. After he returned to Aftermath, he won Empire Wars Duo 2 and HOLY Cup. Around the same time, he made the finals of two editions of Red Bull Wololo.

When Age of Empires IV was released in 2021, Hera played it extensively and made the quarterfinals of GENESIS. In 2022, he won the Winter Championship in a close grand final over the favorite, MarineLord.

Hera took a break from Age of Empires in 2022 to play League of Legends[1]. He returned to AoE in May but said he would only play Age of Empires II. Aftermath soon after repeated their Battle of Africa title, winning BoA 3 over GamerLegion. Later, he finally got his first victory in a Lan event, winning both The Grand Melee and Nili's Apartment Cup 4 just a few months apart from each other, and beating Liereyy 5-4 in the finals of both tournaments.

He currently lives in Argentina, together with his wife RoxyC, who is a member of the AoE2 community as well.
