Rain spent her entire life protecting her people. Every hour of the day she spent training her body and her mind for combat, so that when those would come who choose to harm her people she could stop them no matter the odds. Her power became great, so great that even her own people, who she swore to protect, began to fear her. Soon the people learned of a great tyrant who was on his way towards them. This menace was a nigh unstoppable killing machine and the people believe it spelled their doom. They sought out Rain telling her of the coming enemy, and she was ready for the fight. But the people felt there was no good outcome here, when both the sides contained something they feared, they felt there was no way out. So they set a trap, there was only one pass to the people's village so the plan was to get rain to fight the tyrant in the pass, then blow it up as they were fighting, thus sealing both their fates. Sadly enough the plan failed. When the fight began the people moved into position, but since these were everyday people they did not do it sneakily enough. Both the fighters noticed their presence, but since Rain knew them well she did not fear their watching, the tyrant was a different matter. It a critical moment in the combat, the explosives were ignited. The tyrant reacted instantly dodging the falling rubble, Rain was not so lucky. Crushed under the rubble she was killed, and 2 days later the rest of her people with her, as they had lost their protection. Rain awoke a week after the explosion. Though the last moments were confusing, she remembered one thing, her people betrayed her. When she went to village to seek vengeance, all she found was death. She did not care that the villagers had died, she was just insane with rage that it was not by her hand. She began to roam the lands killing all she met, to fill her everlasting vengeance, but no matter how much she killed, she still thirst for more. In the end the mindless killing led to the Fields of Valoran. Though even the lives lost in the fields are not enough, she still hungers for more. Still to this day, Rain has no idea she is dead.

Rain is a melee fighter, using a spear as her weapon of choice. This gives her flexibility in combat, and allows for some interesting abilities. Combine this with her phantom qualities and you get a very mobile melee hero.

Feel free to comment on Rain, and please be honest. Oh and sorry if the back story is a little long.

wall of text crits you for x% over 5 seconds

I dunno I said Wow just about 12 times reading this lol
This is great but...why the name Rain?
Why not Alandra or Cassandra or something like that which makes her seem like she used to be a noble valiant warrior but is now a mysterious bloodthirsty phantasm bent on killing anything that stands in her way.
