The Soul Harvester
Veera's Mesmerize has a limited range, so you should be very careful when you use it. It is best to position Veera as far as possible from the enemy when in a team fight.
Veera applies a Come Hither stack to every enemy hit by her abilities. Each stack reduces an enemy's magic defense by 30-72 (scales with hero level), up to 3 stacks. A kill or assist will reduce the cooldown of all abilities by 25% of their maximum cooldown time.
Mana cost: 70
Veera summons a Hell Bat that glides forward, dealing 575 (+0) magic damage to enemies hit.
Mana cost: 0
Veera blows a kiss at an enemy, dealing 285 (+0) magic damage and stunning the target for 1.5 seconds.
Mana cost: 120
Veera summons up to 5 bats to attack surrounding enemies. Each bat deals 325 (+0) magic damage. If a target has been hit once, all subsequent hits only deal 50% damage.

I am Veera, Queen of the Night.
Before she had turned to the Abyss, Veera was merely one of many demi-gods scattered throughout the realm, and not a particularly powerful one at that. The Creator may have blessed demi-gods with perfection in body and spirit, but not all of them actually achieve such perfection. Some, like Veera, were born with imperfections left from the time of creation, which neither spell nor potion could heal.
Veera depended on her wits to survive. Before she went to bed each night, she analyzed everything that happened that day, seeking a better, more effective solution to everything, and teaching the solution to other sentient beings. Over time, Veera became known as the greatest sage of the land, the one to seek out to answer any question and solve any problem, and she leveraged her wisdom to earn a living.
Among Veera's visitors, Maloch was the most unusual. Incredibly strong and quick to anger, deep inside his heart was as pure and simple as that of a child. Under Veera's guidance he learned to control and direct his destructive power, cleaving roads through mountains and turning rivers as needed. As they changed the world around them, their knowledge of each other also grew.
The spark of civilization and love grew in the wilds of the ancient era.
Yet with the declaration of the Decree of Light and Order, unbounded demi-gods like Veera were branded as heretics by the Temple. After a futile struggle, they were sent to Mt. Ophean, to be reeducated by Edras, the Archmage of Veda.
Physically weak, Veera suffered greatly on the long journey. Her pleas to the Temple Guards fell on deaf ears and only earned even harsher treatment from them. If not for the care that Maloch, Volkath and the others bestowed upon her, she would not have survived the journey.
And so hatred for the Temple grew inside Veera's heart, even as she eagerly absorbed every last drop of knowledge that the Temple taught her. To defeat an enemy, you must first know them. The wisdom that Veera learned in the wilds were equally valuable in the Temple.
Veera's performance earned Edras' approval, and she was hailed as the finest example of reeducation. Edras even promised to do all that he could to heal Veera's defect. Yet none of this changed Veera's view of the Temple, especially once she learned that the Creator meant for the demi-gods to rule over the world. Why should we not exercise our authority by our own will? Why should we be bound to this travesty, this piece of paper?
And so when Volkath organized his resistance aided by the power of the Abyss, Veera joined his camp without hesitation and brought over numerous allies to join the war. Her guile and wisdom were of great benefit to the rebels, dealing a heavy blow to the defenders of the Temple, giving the rebels valuable time to escape.
Her unrivalled mind for strategy assured her a prestigious place in the Abyss. Whether under Volkath or Maloch, Veera was always their most trusted advisor. She built the Abyss Legion into a formidable force, further solidifying her position and power.
It is said that Veera calls herself Queen of the Night because she inherited the power of Maniara, Primal Night. No one has been able to prove this assertion - or disprove it - and Veera herself has remained quiet over the topic. What is undeniable is that Veera has long bid farewell to her physically weak self, gaining a new body that is both healthy and seductive. To overcome a defect of creation requires great power.
To most inhabitants of the Abyss, Maloch is their indomitable commander and the lord of the realm in name. Yet it is Veera who truly pulls the strings behind the scenes, much like Ilumia does within the Temple.
It takes wisdom to combat wisdom.
