Lore[edit]

Mercurial. A word that evokes volatility, quickness, and cunning. But to compare anything to the speed and wit of the Messenger God Mercury would be to compare a hot day to the searing forge of Vulcan, or a blooming rose to the glory of Venus. It is but a pale comparison. Mercury can leap the space between lightning and thunder, outfox the fox king, and reach tomorrow before the sun.

As an infant, Mercury escaped the watchful eye of his half-brother, Apollo, stole his cattle, fashioned a lyre from a tortoise shell, and snuck in a nap, all before Apollo found him missing. His father, Jupiter, found the child’s mischief boisterously entertaining, and awarded him the task of delivering messages for the Gods, traveling between the Heavens, the Earth, and even to the depths of the Underworld.

Now war looms and Mercury races to keep the lines of communication open, though he is often caught in the thick of battle. No stranger to combat, he once slew the monster Argus, the demon with one hundred watchful eyes, using speed and guile alone. But this war is different. The foes are stronger, the stakes higher, and Mercury a pivotal cog in the machine. Should he fail to deliver even a single order the balance could tip, and the time left for this world would be truly mercurial.

Skills[edit]

Passive - Fastest God Alive
For every 1 ft traveled, Mercury gains a 0.1% physical power bonus on his next basic attack (max 50%). Mercury also gains additional physical power equal to 25% of movement speed from items or abilities. Notes:
1st Ability - Made You Look
Mercury moves in the blink of an eye, dealing one melee attack to every enemy within the target area. Each hit may trigger item effects for basic attacks, and can critical hit. Notes:
 Bullet.png Damage: 90/115/140/165/190 (/+50% of your basic attack power)  Bullet.png Radius: 7.5/9/10.5/12/13.5

 Bullet.png Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 mana
3rd Ability - Special Delivery
Mercury dashes forward, knocking aside minions, grabbing the first enemy god he encounters and spinning them. The enemy god takes damage until the effect ends, and Mercury throws the god in the direction of his choice. Notes:
 Bullet.png Minion Damage: 70/115/160/205/250 (+60% of your physical power)  Bullet.png Damage per Tick: 10/15/20/25/30 (+15% of your physical power) every 0.25s

Trivia[edit]

  • One of Mercury's jokes, "Nanananananananana..", could be a reference to the 1970's tv series The Six Million Dollar Man.
  • One of Mercury's death quotes, "Another one bites the dust..", is a reference to the song Another One Bites The Dust by the British rock band Queen. Their singer, Freddie Mercury, also shares his name with Mercury which is probably the reason of this quote.
  • When Mercury uses his second ability he sometimes says "Gotta go fast!". This is a reference to the Sonic X anime series' Intro, and the internet meme spawned by it.
  • The name of Mercury's passive, "Fastest God Alive", is a reference to DC Comics superhero The Flash and his slogan "The fastest man alive.".
  • Mercury's backing animation is a reference to a statue titled "Flying Mercury" by Giovanni da Bologna.
  • When Mercury uses his ultimate ability with his Run.EXE skin he sometimes says "Ludicrous speed!" or "Light speed too slow!". Both are references to the American film Spaceballs.
