The Reaper

Silverscythe the Reaper is a hero that utilize his presence to weaken his enemies. Reborn as a ferocious and threatening angel of death, Reaper skill set lowers his enemies' chance to escape death. A slice of his scythe causes his enemy to have a reduced magic resistance while with just a movement, their move speed is slowed greatly. When the time comes for death to claim their lives, Reaper launches his hell-wrought scythe to deal a fatal damage and frightening debuff to those who witnesses the action.

He who is a mere henchman, sent by the God to rip the soul of the self-willed apart from their vessel. Once who was being hunt and now is hunting. Once who was murdered but is now murdering. Silverscythe the Reaper was Arzelo, an innocent soul, just like any other living mortals. He was an attractive and remarkable smith, only rivaled by the elder and more experienced in this business, Craler. Any tool he crafts, any sword he sharpen proves that his mind is gifted by the Unchallenged One to help those who in need to fight their war. But the claim was too prevalent that it reaches the ears of fearful clans who lives from the other side of the world. They decided that the Arzelo is too threathening to be left alive. In just one night, all the veterans of the clan successfully ambushed the smith's house and assassinated him using his own newly made scythe. The slaughter sent Arzelo to the God's realm where he meets him directly. He told the ex-smith that his death was very unjustified and he deserved to live more than he was. The God offered a resurrection chance, not exclusively for his vengeance, but for a chance to contribute more to the God, as his dreadful angel of death, the Silverscythe.
