-Xio- Role: Firepower – HP: 130
Gameplay: A combo assassin that balances getting up close and personal with the occasional flurry of knives from afar. Most notable for gaining additional targeting reticles after successfully shielding an attack, and turning all of his abilities into Free Actions during his ultimate.
Lore: The lore for the characters is currently far from finalized and is subject to change, with only minimal details given as a precaution. Xio is a supervillain with time manipulation powers of some sort, reflected in his dash and ultimate, and possibly something that meets the description of a vampire.
