Cascade is a marksman hero part of the Way of Mystery faction in Hero Wars Alliance. He is considered the "every team" fit for the moment, also being both valuable in attack and defense.

Pros
  • Deals 3 types of damage
  • Displacement ability
  • The first hero to have two stats as an artifact weapon

Cons
  • Low health

One morning, a fisherman from a nearby village came down to the rapid river to fish, only to find a young titan washed ashore. He adopted the child, naming him Cascade. With each day spent among humans, Cascade drifts further away from his titanic nature, but his developing power never fails to remind him of his origins. A titan or a human? Someday, Cascade will have to choose.
