MLP Dota 2 Animated Card: Invoker by Yudhaikeledai MLP Dota 2 Animated Card: Invoker by Yudhaikeledai
Star Swirl the Bearded; the Invoker

Main Attribute: Intelligence
Role: Carry, Nuker, Initiator, Escape

Lore:
Throughout history, there only existed four ponies who held the title of ‘Grand Magus’: Aghanim the Magnificent, Rubick the Cunning; Aghanim’s Son, Twilight Sparkle, and arguably the most famous of them all, Starswirl the Bearded. A Grand Magus with a twist, Starswirl didn’t achieve the rank the same way the others did. For he never understood the magic that came from friendship — which was strangely an extremely foreign concept to him. Instead, he learned the numerous spells successors had forged and mastered.

What gave Starswirl his notoriety and the uncontested title as ‘the most powerful unicorn in the history of Equestria’ were his invocations. By breaking down every spell he learned into their most basic elements; regents, he saw that he could simply combine the regents into the spells he wanted and need not memorize the exact incantation of every spell. This granted him uncontested versatility and power. While other mages would be lucky to cast two spells within a minute, Invoker could cast five in the same span of time.

Starswirl casted an uncountable amount of spells, one of them being the spell of eternal youth; Sempiternal Cantrap. When he had hoof-picked his favorites, Starswirl was only left with ten incantations, all of them made up by different combinations of the regents Quas; the fortification of a glacier, Wex; the speed of a fleeting storm, and Exort; the power of a malignant volcano.

Yet, with all this power, Starswirl mysteriously vanished without a trace. Even as centuries passed, his name was still spoken by mages in adoration. Many assumed he had died, though several ponies spoke in hushed whispers that they had seen Starswirl wandering around the woods, dressed in his signature blue constellation cloak at the same time that Twilight Sparkle ascended to the rank of ‘Grand Magus’.

Is Starswirl looking for a challenge? Or is he hoping to forcefully take back his title as the most powerful unicorn in all of Equestria? Nopony knows. But even though his motivations may be hazy, everypony agrees on one thing; his power is legendary, and a clash with Twilight Sparkle, the unicorn who mastered the magic of friendship, would be exactly what the ‘Invoker’ would want.


P.S.
As Star Swirl's design is not known at this point of time, his form here is based on the drawing "Legends of Equestria" at this ziom05.deviantart.com/art/Lege…

I am now imagining Star Swirl the Bearded running around speaking in Invoker's voice. And it's surprisingly funny.

The real Starswirl is never revealed, hence his colour for now is left free to the artist's imagination. I personally chose the colour Yellow as it made him stand out compared to his blue outfit, and also cause I like the design of Starswirl from the artwork "Legends of Equestria" so much

This Yellow design looks great, with the way you drew the beard and all. FIts really well with the outfit.
Is there any chance we might see a full-body picture of him ?

This is the full body picture of Starswirl (that I used in my animation) - the design is based on the artwork "Legends of Equestria."

I'll be using him again in an upcoming animation project so maybe that'll be the first time you see him in action (with the yellow design) :)

Flash Sentry is a crystal empire pegasus pony royal guard! What role will you attribute to him and to the main villain aka Sunset Shimmer! Man I really wished Sunset was Lina but you chose Trixie already!

Yudhaikeledai Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
Trixie is not good enough to be the Invoker XD
I actually decided for her to be Lina - Aggressive playstyle with a fiery and proud personality, with some equally flashy (and offensive oriented) spells to boot and of a level that I believe Trixie can pull off. Though this means I have to throw away the sibling rivalry with CM story.

P.S. wishing to tell you that your "Heroes fail to name Items proper" vid is just creative and downright hilarious :D

About sibling rivalry, have you thought on who is going to be Crystal Maiden!

I'll tell you: Diamond Tiara for 3 reasons!

1) Tiara of the Crystaline Queen
2) Same personality or almost as Trixie (even if she's not a unicorn)
3) Well she has a cute side of hers even though some do not see it!

Now that I see happening :D But to be honest, you know who would fit her better? If Yudhaikeladai were to accept OCs, then I vote for Snowdrop! If you people saw the animation, then you might get the idea why I vote for her :)
