Info[edit | edit source]

Tied to the lifeforce of all creatures that move across the lands of Newerth, the Empath has suffered greatly in the war against the daemons. Nevertheless, her gift -- and curse -- is a powerful asset for the Legion, for the Empath is able to call on her magic to heal allies, weaken foes, and even merge her essence with other heroes.
