Valla witnessed the ferocity of hellspawn firsthand as the demons ravaged her village and left her for dead.

Alarak is our first Hero in the Nexus to have a Silence attached to a Basic Ability. While this counter is not as strong as the others listed, Alarak is a scary opponent for Heroes like Valla that rely heavily on using an ability to escape bad situations and kite their enemies. If Alarak can land a Telekinesis > Discord Strike Combo, he can set up unique kill windows on Heroes like Valla by removing their ability to use their key survivability tools.
