Seth is rolling up on Closers in less than a month, and if that sounds ominous, just remember that Seth is a half-demon with huge claws that’ll maul faces. Wait, that didn’t help, did it?[AL:Clo]”Seth is what happens when a bright young girl named Anna becomes imbued with the ferocious primal power of the demon Sekhmet,” En Masse explains. “She’s the final member of UNION’s Wildhüter team, and one terribly ferocious melee fighter.”
“Seth is a wild being who fights with claws. She’s a “being” because she’s actually the fusion of a young girl and a strange wild being. There are several very famous characters that use claws, from all sorts of fiction. Perhaps the greatest inspiration for the character Seth came from the famous manga, Yotsuba&! (Yes, that ampersand is correct!) The predatory look with those claws was based on big cats. Matching the dangerous image with the cute character from the manga generated a nice synergy for a ferocious but precocious young character. Her weakness is that she enters her empowered state slowly, compared to other characters. And her close attack range makes it difficult for her to deal with a large number of monsters. Still, she’s an absolute blast to play, and we expect players will fall in love with her moves and style come September 10th.”
We’re expecting a blast of new info next week, but in the meantime, En Masse has passed along a stack of exclusive screenshots showing off her sweet claws.
Wanna see her in action? ‘Course you do! The devs set us up with a stack of gifs too so you can get a feel for the whirlwind-in-motion that is the new toon:
Can’t wait to get your hands on the new toon? A pre-build event for the character begins next week on August 27th!
