Lich's Lore

In life, the frost-mage Ethreain (not yet a Lich) had used the threat of destructive ice to enslave entire kingdoms. His subjects, aided by a few desperate magicians, eventually grew bold enough to ambush him. Armed with enough charmed rope to bind him forever, they tied the frost mage to adamant weights and dropped him in a pool known chiefly for being bottomless. It wasn't. He only fell for a year or so before an outcrop snagged him. There he rested, dead but undecaying, until the geomancer Anhil thought to verify the legend of the supposedly bottomless Black Pool. Anhil's plumbline snarled with the ropes that bound the drowned magician, and up he hauled an unexpected prize. Thinking that by rendering the dead undead, he could question the Lich about the properties of the pool, he removed the bindings and commenced a simple rite of resurrection. Even the descendants of Ethreain's enemies were long forgotten by time, so there were none to warn Anhil against imprudence. But he learned the error of his judgment almost immediately, as Lich threw off the shackles and consumed him.

Quoted:

His name still is "Lich". He's just got his lore name changed from Kel'Thuzad, because Kel'Thuzad is a Blizzard character. For some reason DotAFire has the character's lore name before their hero name... I'd think "Windrunner" is more easily remembered than "Lyralei," and "Drow Ranger" is more memorable than "Traxex," but I'm just glad that DotAFire has the service in the first place.

Yeah nobody remembers Lyralei but not because windrunner is used more but because her name is Alleria

One of the strongest supports with excellent synergy with almost any team comp. My favorite support by far.

Ethereain?? I thought it was Kel'Thuzad.

It was, however, many of the original DotA heroes were based off of Warcraft 3 characters and lore. Kel'Thuzad was in the WC3 campaign, and you can understand why Valve wouldn't want any of Blizzard's material in their game. Lawsuits.
