Heroes of Might and Magic V  → Dungeon Heroes

by Ubisoft

He is the background story behind ten heroes of the Dungeon faction. Click on the pictures to enlarge them. The French version of this report can be found here.


Nothing is known of Raelag’s past, and though he is direct and ruthless in battle his plans and tactics are kept as secret as his personal history. Because he often out-thinks, outflanks, and outmaneuvers his opponents, they move with a great deal of hesitation when facing him in battle. When up against this wily and intimidating warrior, his enemies often find themselves second-guessing their own plans.


Shadya's family was killed off early in the succession wars of the Soulscar clan. As the sole survivor, she has dedicated her entire life to revenge. Training herself in every art that could further her vendetta she disappears for months at a time, resurfacing only to cross another enemy off her list. One against hundreds, Shadya has mastered all there is to know about infiltration, evasion, assassination, and subtlety.


Kythra is one of the wealthiest leaders of Ygg-Chall. The source of her money is no secret, as she gets it from a business in minotaur slaves that has been in her family for generations. The slaves form the backbone of her formidable army as well; those chosen to become warriors must first pass through a bloody and often fatal school for gladiators.


Vayshan is famous for daring sorties to Irollan, where he makes grim sport of hunting his Sylvan relatives. The reasons for his hatred are unknown, but his troops share in his obsession. Joining Vayshan for a hunt in the forest lands is an honor for his dark scouts and assassins who surpass themselves in the hopes of winning their commanders’ approval.


Eruina is a true daughter of the legendary Queen Tuidhana. Though Eruina herself does not flaunt her prestigious bloodline, preferring to be judged on her impressive abilities, the Shadow Witchs and Shadow Matriarchs of her army support her attacks with all the fury of true fanatics.


The warlocks of Ygg-Chall are dark and shadowy wizards, and Sinitar is special even among this strange group. Not only can he empower spells, but his skill is such that he can do it while using less of his own mana. No one is sure how he came to have this ability, but the scars on his face tell of bargains with the dragons of shadow - bargains that can take a heavy toll on both body and mind.


Sorgal's skill in raising the battle lizards of the Dark Elves comes not from gentleness or empathy, but from a merciless culling of the weak and a training regimen that even the strong can fail. When they go into battle his lizards are desperate and half-starving; in this way when Sorgal's troops attack their mounts bite their enemies ever more ferociously.


Yrbeth was a child gifted with powers of focus and concentration beyond her years. Training in the eldritch arts like many of her kin, Yrbeth's ability to focus her powers – famously displayed during an earthquake – permits her to accumulate more magical energies than is normally possible. The night before an important battle Yrbeth often goes sleepless, spending hours in meditation to prepare herself.


Wherever Yrwanna goes she is followed by a retinue of admirers who praise her beauty. But there is a keen intellect hidden behind the stunning appearance, and Yrwanna knows well how to using her looks to achieve her goals. Though Yrwanna has been known to sacrifice hundreds of her followers to achieve victory, it has not weakened the loyalty of her troops.


Lethos is considered a very useful ally due to his ability to win a battle before it starts. Though he has served many decades, his intimate knowledge of the more exotic poisons and diseases remains undimmed. Enemy troops approaching the field may feel the effects of Lethos's spells and concoctions even before the fighting begins; wise enemies have been known to start their attack by retreating.

why is some of the heroes missing?

I love the artwork for Dungeon. Sylvan is nice, but not as well done IMO. I guess Ylthin must've been what the dark elves were like before their exile.

"when you finish the last campaign, you will figure that"

Or you could have figured it out even before the game went gold.

agRAEL become RAELag after the purification from the druid master. when you finish the last campaign, you will figure that

**** i wish they would bring in a mod to make ALL heroes available it took me a few hours to get my maahir mod working on all maps if i had to do this with every hero it would end up being a severe headache not to mention that the warlords map is apparently incapable of accepting any campaign heroes ***

Heh, HoMM5. Comes complete with wardrobe malfunctions. :D

Having different heroes from different races can apply to more ways to equip them, to skill them. I really hope for non-human heroes. Other cultures, other philosophies - that's much more fun, if developed rightly.

ThunderTitan at 2006-02-22 19:42 wrote:
Yeah, only having 1 race for heroes per faction is kinda lame. But that's what we get so that the factions can "make more sense"! :disagree:

DaemianLucifer at 2006-02-22 19:36 wrote:
Its unity through races.So only the race that unifies the town can be a hero(apparently).But I shure hope will have genies as heroes.As for minos,Im not sure,since they are slaves.

Panda Tar at 2006-02-22 19:25 wrote:
That's rather odd seeing all these heroes from all the factions availabe...there are just human-like heroes. Nothing like minotaur, genius, griffish-like one, elephant...will those be banished?

Have you noticed the name similarity between Raelag and Agrael?

Figures. I don't really care for his style. Could be worse though.

I don't know any french, but I took a look and saw the name "Ledroit". He has made some other H5 art, so maybe he's done more?

The uk site has the descriptions too now: http://www.mightandmagic.com/uk/

in reply to Symeon Star-Eyes

Hero pictures in H3 looked lame too. Seems that only the heroes in H2 looked good, but almost all of theme were humans!

They could atleast named the upg Minotaur Warrior instead of King.

If we can choose which Hero to have, man I think the choice is quite clear. ;) Just damn I hate Minotaurs. :)

Can someone tell me why Kythra seems to think that a belt is equivalent to a brassiere? I mean, er, not that I, uh, mind or anything but, um, why does she even bother? That doesn't even look realistic...or comfortable. ;|

Haven't you learned. Womans are known to suffer for their beauty, up true the centrys they have used alot of "cloth pices" we men will say are torture items.:)

Keep up the a good work Nival, finally Heroes with deep and interesting bio's and nice artwork I can tell. And most importantly the specializations are back (lack of which was one of the biggest disadvantages of H4)! I wonder how many of them will be in each fraction...

Symeon Star-Eyes at 2006-02-02 12:57 wrote:
These heroes look great!
Hopefully the rest of the bunch will be on par with these designs. Hero-design was one of the things that annoyed me most about Heroes IV; so many of the heroes were downright ugly.

Kythra is one of the richest leaders of Ygg-Chall, but the origin of her wealth is not a secret anymore.

She worse than scrooge then,since she doesnt even want to spend a small amount on a decent bra :D

Orfinn at 2006-02-02 10:56 wrote:

I have nothing against her bra, its just an unusual type =P

"Joining Vayshan on a chase in the woods remains an honor for the Dark Scouts and Assassins. They attempt to exceed his expectations in order to receive his gratitude."

Hah! Very good seems each hero have their own speciality, such as creatures, In this case Vayshan Scouts and Assassins are his speciality.

these pics are way better than the h3/h4 ones. but the picture of "Kei" in duel is plain out lame.

It's a standard fantasy bra, give it a rest.

Great heroes! Vayshan got to be the hero I like the most. Dark and Interesting background story.
And whats with Kythras belt BH? lol :D

We will probably combine them all before the navigation gets too messy.

I like how the Dungeon is the first town that has 3 sections on CH :)

Probably the reason behind the current poll results.

Nice :)

Hmm Raelag has a penalty on enemy initiative based on his level, Kythra is obviously replacing the current Minotaur specializer and Vayshan is replacing the current Scout specializer.. but Shaydia is really enigmatic, and I like the description very much :) , even though I can't figure out what her bonus will be.

Finaly some heroes! And I though the Blood Furies/Witches had ridiculous bras!
