I think this has been said before on the Ubi Soft Heroes forums — but what the heck: The Ouroboros as a symbol for the Inferno faction (with core philosophies like selfishness and destruction) seems very questionable to me.

One of the primary meanings of this symbol is eternity and the eternal return. When considering this, what Heroes faction comes to your mind first? — Right, Nature (which is more or less the direct opposite, at least when leaving out things like Darwinism).

In my opinion, Ubi Soft/Nival should be more careful when utilizing actual symbolism. A much more appropriate symbol for the Inferno faction would be the chaos star.

The Ouroboros however would make a fine symbol for the Elves faction.

I don't like the names "Horned Demon" "Horned Overseer", skip the "horned" alltogether. And overseer of what? imps? perhaps a little low level to be overseeing much. "Succubus favourite" is another poor choice, I suggest (a friend actually): Fallen Nymph - Succubus, or Succubus - Nephilim. Also the repetition of "Hell" is poor, perhaps "Infernal Stallion". The rest is wonderful.

I think they used the "horned" because they want to establish a relation with HoMM 3...it's kinda useless...

isn't a nephilim a giant? So succubus - nephilim would be a giant succubus?

Dear JSE.

I salute you because of your knowledge about symbols, but I feel sorry for you because of your knowledge about Inferno faction in HoMM V. If you red history of faction and a little about this how demons were returning and returning again to the world of game you would know that Ouroboros is very well chosen here.

Dont you think the inferno creatures look exactly the same? (Compare the nightmares to the pit fiends and the hell hounds to the devils.)

Agree with JSE.I would rather like to see the Inferno units use the Unicursal hexagram rather than the Ouroboros (the snake that eats its own tail) which fits more for the nature town.

Unicursal hexagram is Old Skool evil , ditto Ouroboros - What else is there anyways?

I do not like this town, nor its wiew. It looks like hell, if you know what I mean (but i guess that has to be that way, because i am keen to sylvan).

the back-story isn't deep enough for my tastes. the other factions reveal a little more personality than does the inferno. it makes them seem like simple, marauding beasts, which is rather boring. their actions bely an obvious deep-seeded passion for something more complicated than pure destruction. also, where's their creation story? it's my understanding that this isn't based on the historys created in the previuos heroes installments, so where did they come from?

Ouroboros is a symbol of constant re-creation and harmony of 2 opposites (normally it has half light and half dark), but in Satanism it is the symbol of Leviathan, god of chaos or whatever.Similiarity between Leviathan, from Old Testament and Satanic Bible and that Urgash from HoMaM V is obvious, so thats probly the reason why the Ouroboros is an Inferno symbol.
