Idle Champion Spotlight: Brother Uriah 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It can be difficult to find faith in the domains of dread, and almost impossible to find a truly good person. Which is why Brother Uriah is absolutely exceptional, and a cherished member of the Black Dice Society! He is the final member of that affiliation to join Idle Champions, and brings his do-good nature to the roster during Grand Revel 6.

I. Brother Uriah

Dungeons & Dragons Uriah Midwinter
    Brother Uriah Macawber is a native of Ravenloft, born in the dread domain of Darkon under the iron rule of Azalin Rex. After a horrifying childhood encounter at the Carnival with the demonic entity known as The Caller, Uriah would embrace the worship of the goddess Ezra, Lady of the Mists, offering protection from the forces of darkness to all those in need. Upon joining with the other future members of The Black Dice Society, Uriah would go on to find friendship, true love, and dark truths about himself and his past.

Brother Uriah is a Support and Healing Champion that completes the Black Dice Society affiliation. As a faithful Cleric of Ezra, Brother Uriah heals nearby champions as well as increasing their damage. In stressful situations, he becomes possessed by the spirit of Azalin Rex. While possessed, he increases the damage of Nahara and any Evil champions in the formation. Once unlocked, you can find this human cleric opposite Makos in Slot 9.

III. Brother Uriah's Design

The Idle Champions community is very familiar with Mark Meer and the excellent work he does as an actor, voice over artist, and TTRPG player in a huge variety of places. He's also helped us bring Baeloth the Entertainer to life in the game as well as several seasons of Idle Champions Presents! But this is the first chance we've had to bring in a Champion he has created wholly himself.

Dungeons & Dragons Fen

Brother Uriah is designed to work well with the Black Dice Society affiliation, featuring multiple positional formation abilities for Valentine, a dead/escort synergy for Desmond, a buff for Nahara and evil champions, and is the first healer for the group. With Doomed in Darkon he increases the damage of Champions in his column and behind, while healing all Champions within two slots of him with Ezra's Embrace. After a while he succumbs to being In The Grip of Azalin Rex, who focuses on increasing the damage of Nahara as well as all evil Champions in the formation.

There are two different books that Brother Uriah can choose from when picking a specialization. The Book of Exalted Deeds encourages the destruction of Undead and Fiends, making them his Favored Foes and buffing all Champion damage against them. But if he chooses the Book of Vile Darkness he'll further increase the damage bonus to Nahara and all evil Champions. Brother Uriah prefers to attack damaged enemies with Toll the Dead, and when a more Ultimate attack is necessary he will create a Blade Barrier that whirls across the screen, slashing at enemies with razor-sharp blades of magical energy!

IV. Brother Uriah's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Toll the Dead - Brother Uriah points at a random enemy and deals one hit of magical damage. Brother Uriah prefers to attack enemies that are already damaged.

Formation Abilities

  • Doomed in Darkon - Brother Uriah increases the damage of all Champions in his column and the column behind him by +100%.
  • Ezra's Embrace - Brother Uriah heals all champions within two slots for 5 health per second. This effect is increased by 25% for each formation slot containing a dead champion or an escort, stacking additively and applying multiplicatively.
  • In the Grip of Azalin Rex - After 100 normal attacks by Champions in the formation, Azalin Rex takes over Brother Uriah for 20 seconds. While controlled by Azalin Rex, Brother Uriah increases the damage of Nahara and all evil Champions by +1000%.


  • Book of Exalted Deeds - Brother Uriah reads from the Book of Exalted Deeds, making Undead and Fiends his Favored Foes and all Champions deal +200% damage to them.
  • Book of Vile Darkness - Azalin reads from the Book of Vile Darkness, increasing the effect of In the Grip of Azalin Rex by 100%.

Ultimate Ability

  • Blade Barrier - Brother Uriah creates a wall of whirling, razor-sharp blades of magical energy to appear in front of the formation, quickly slides across the screen, ending close to where enemies are spawned. Each enemy that passes through the barrier (or has the barrier pass over) takes one hit of ultimate damage. The barrier lasts for 10 seconds after it reaches its final location. If an enemy is pushed back through it and/or walks through it a second time they take another hit.
