Leayana, the Blazing Nova.
High in the Caldarian mountains stands a large monument, it channels energy through its large prism, which sits atop its spire. This is the energy of the nova. Every millennium, a recruit of the nova is sent to the Caldarian monument, in a hope to one day fill themselves with the nova energy. Leayana, the 10th recruit to head up this long road received a blessing from the monument. The nova energies are usually based around fire, but this young disciple got blessed with four nova elements: Fire, Ice, Earth and Lightning. The Battle of the Ancients is a great opportunity to strengthen her powers and do her teacher proud.

(quick word on the ultimate nova abilities, they provide a passive which has no benefits and doesn't wear off, you'll see why later)

There have been a collection of really interesting ideas like this lately. While they may not be the easiest heroes to actually use, I love 'em. Great work on this one and keep 'em coming!

Tbh I'd never be able to use a hero like this myself but lets be honest, whether you can use invoker well or not he's pretty awesome. This is my favourite hero so far I think :D
