Quick reminder: Hellenica is launching on January 23rd, and we'd really appreciate your wishlists/follows!
Now on to the next party member: Nephele, the theomechanist!
Prior to her adventuring career, Nephele was a temple priestess at a small temple of Apollo outside Athens. In addition to helping out with religious rites, Nephele's also in charge of keeping all of the temple machinery in tip-top shape. That is, when she's not tinkering on her own steam-powered gadgets.
In combat, Nephele sports a mini-pressurized boiler and her trusty steam bow:
Her steam bow can deal incredibly high single-target damage, especially when using her stored up steam pressure to hop up to high vantage points:
In addition to these basic abilities, Nephele builds up one unit of steam pressure each turn to power her unlockable skills. The first skill you'll get to use is called Depressurize. It uses up all of her pressure to push all adjacent characters up to 5 spaces:
Unless said characters hit a wall or fall off a cliff, that is. ;)
Check back in Monday, and I'll dig into a few of Nephele's other skills! (Part 2 is here!)
