Denied her own death time and again, Krobelus returns from the grave with skills acquired from the beyond. Gathering a Crypt Swarm, she sends forth a flock of winged beast to harass the living. A pall of Silence falls over the land, stifling any objection as she Siphons multiple enemies dry simultaneously. Mortals beware. As she performs an Exorcism, unleashing the banshee remnants of her previous lives, demolishing enemies and their defenses alive, turning the battlefield into her own haunted ground.

Bio[edit]

What I've seen goes far beyond death.
Death Prophet
Aliases:
DP, Krobelus
Krobelus was a Death Prophet—which is one way of saying she told fortunes for the wealthiest of those who wished to look beyond the veil. But after years of inquiring on behalf of others, she began to seek clues on her own fate. When death refused to yield its secrets, she tried to buy them with her life. But the ultimate price proved insufficient.

Death disgorged her again and again, always holding back its deepest mysteries. Her jealousy grew. Others could die for eternity—why not she? Why must she alone be cast back on the shores of life with such tiresome regularity? Why was she not worthy of the one thing all other living creatures took for granted? Still, she would not be discouraged.

Each time she returned from the grave, she brought a bit of death back with her. Wraiths followed her like fragments of her shattered soul; her blood grew thin and ectoplasmic; the feasting creatures of twilight took her for their kin.. She gave a little of her life with every demise, and it began to seem as if her end was in sight. With her dedication to death redoubled, and no client other than herself, Krobelus threw herself ever more fervently into death's abyss, intent on fulfilling the one prophecy that eluded her: That someday the Death Prophet would return from death no more.

Trivia[edit]

  • At some point, she, along with Io and Silencer, had her costume and ability color palettes changed. Before, Death Prophet's garments and ability icons were more purple in color.
  • The icon for her old ability, Witchcraft, shows a pentacle, a symbol that became associated with magic in the Middle Ages and was traditionally used in witchcraft.
