Recommend Artifact: Dura’s Eye
Shemira was once the wife of Niru (quick lore). However, she is much more powerful than her husband.
In fact, she is currently one of the strongest damage dealers in the game. Her Tortured Souls ability can absolutely demolish enemy teams as not only does it do insane damage, but it also hits every single enemy on the battlefield at the same time.
Survivability can be a problem early on, but at later levels she can last for much longer due to the healing from Tortured Souls and her passive life-leach.
As for utility, her silence can shutdown enemy mages. It’s extremely useful against heroes such as Arden, who can CC her and delay the casting of Tortured Souls.
While she is extremely strong late game, she isn’t as crazy at lower levels as she can die before a cast of Tortured Souls goes off. She starts to excel around level 81 and scales extremely well with increased levels and gear.
Shemira is a very strong pick for guild bosses. Her damage is insane and she can survive quite well with her self-healing.

A soul forged in sorrow with nothing left to her in the world. This was Shemira in the final months of her life. Her husband had been a renowned healer, but her adoration and respect for him had gone out the window when she heard about the horrific acts of which he’d been accused. Her love soured such that when his execution came, she felt more anger than sadness. Niru had left her alone to care for their son in an uncaring world.
It wasn’t long after Niru’s execution that the fevers took hold on her boy, Silvestre. Had Niru been present, Shemira was sure that he could’ve done something. She did everything she could, calling on all the best remaining physicians of Esperia and keeping vigil with silent prayers at the child’s bedside. Her efforts, however, were not enough. After his burial, she felt as if she had nothing left to live for. There was no longer any reason to go about her days as she had before. She began spending almost every waking hour next to the grave of her son, sometimes filling the cemetery with a haunting wail, sometimes staring trancelike at the headstone for hours on end. She stopped taking food more often than not, and he face become hollow, her expression blank.
