Broken Myth Wiki – Adagio

Release Date: Before Recorded History (Among the First Three Heroes)
Primary Role: Protector
Primary Position: Roam
Faction: N/A
Adagio is bored … but he hopes not for much longer. Five heroes have gathered before the Halcyon Well to entertain him. Allies and enemies alike think this is deadly battle; for Adagio, it’s amusing child’s play. With a lineage that’s part elder dragon, Adagio possesses unimaginable power that he wields with minimal effort and care. It may be true he could wipe out all the battle’s enemies—and perhaps level the Fold itself—with a single flick of the wrist, but such easy victories grow tiring. Instead, he’ll hold back, bestow whispers of his power to allies and see which way the wind blows. But woe unto those who underestimate Adagio; when he focuses his Arcane powers on himself, he transforms into a ferocious and brutal warrior.
The master manipulator of large-scale battles, Adagio brings incredible teamfight presence with huge area-of-effect damage and team-saving abilities. He almost seems too good: He can heal. He can amplify damage. He can stun and nuke the entire enemy team. … But none of these can be achieved easily without team-wide coordination. Adagio is extremely flexible and can start as laner, jungler or roamer.
