Skadi, the Hellkeeper.

Nonlore friendly Lore: Skadi travelled all across the world. Hel once told her about Hades, the Greek keeper of the Undead World. She met him, they had a very serious talk, before the next fight on the Battleground of Gods. Cerberus fell in love, seeing Skadi for the first time. He decided to eat Kaldr, when Skadi was having a nice cup of Ambrosia with Zeus and Hades. He's changed her, a lot, but with that, Cerberus sacrificed his heads. She had to keep the gates with him, preparing for the battle, to feed him again and make his heads grow back...


Stage 1:

Tainted by the Cerberus bound, Skadi hair burns, her clothes are dark as coal... She keeps his new friend on a burning chain, waiting for the next victim, who approaches to the Undead Gates. She screams, she's evil. Cerberus needs to eat again. He only has one head, so it's time to feast and make the heads grow back.

Skadi equipment:
Skadi keeps Cerberus on a burning chain. If that's not possible, since he has to be in ethereal state, dog can float around Skadi, as a fire portal and jump out of it, if Skadi uses her Rune of the Hunt.

Chain: https://i.imgur.com/fwzmCWQ.png
or Fire Portal: https://i.imgur.com/XAmpam0.jpg

While using Piercing Cold, the spear leaves an ethereal trail. Hitting an enemy makes him squeezed by the chains.
When she uses her Rune of the Hunt, Cerberus breaks the chain he's attatched to (or jumps out of the portal, leaving a trail of fire). Cerberus icon appears on the enemy targeted.
While using her Permafrost, a steaming/windy circle appears to lure victims into Cerberus or let them live and run away...

Stage 2:

Skadi now looks like an executioner (Nemesis Executioner skin as an example). Cerberus grows, but still has only one head. Chain (or portal) now sparks with fire.
While using Piercing Cold, the spear leaves a dark cloud trail. Hitting an enemy makes him squeezed by the chains.
Her Rune of the Hunt stays the same.
Permafrost creates a dark cloud, with few whispering ghosts appearing in it, enemies don't know where they go, because of the dark clouds.
Using ultimateWinter's Grasp makes Skadi and Cerberus cast metal nails within the radius. Root is a leg ball-shackle.

Stage 3:

Skadi now looks similar to that photo (while keeping a woman form and a shorter robe): https://i.imgur.com/cwy6tji.jpg
Cerberus gains a head. Chain still sparks with fire (portal too). He is getting bigger.

While using Piercing Cold, the spear leaves a dark trail with few souls screaming . Hitting an enemy makes him squeezed by the burning chain.
Rune of the Hunt: An icon with two heads appears on an enemy, instead of one.
Circle on Permafrost still creates a dark cloud, with more whispering ghosts, enemies are now also burning, while standing in the circle.
While using ultimate, Skadi creates a fire fog. Root is a magma floor crack: https://i.imgur.com/YqljH19.jpg

Stage 4:

Skadi looks similar to stage 3, gaining some additional effects (like burning trail, soul trail); her robe is decorated with chains.
Cerberus regains his strenghts. He is bigger and has his heads back in place. ROAR.

While using Piercing Cold, the spear leaves a fire trail. Hitting an enemy makes him squeezed by the burning chain.
In her Rune of the Hunt, three heads appear as an icon, enemy can also hear whispering of Hades, or ghosts (like Eldritch Ra heal).
Her Permafrost creates a dark cloud and a portal in the ground, with screaming souls, trying to escape from the Hades, so they push any god out of it. Enemies are burning, while standing in the circle.

While using ultimate, Skadi creates a fire fog, where small souls float around it. Everyone on the map can hear whispering and Cerberus roar. Random souls float around the map and magma cracks appear randomly on the ground (similar to the Bob Ross mechanics).

Thanks! I agree, a lot of people want Cerberus to be put into the game, so why not take that opportunity and create an awesome Skadi skin, right? I'm a little dissapointed, since I just can't draw that concept. At least imagination is a powerful tool!

I'm trying to draw this concept (on paper, since I do not have those devices to draw on the computer) to help you (if you will), I finished the chain, the spear and the cerberus (I'm horrible drawing dogs, but until It did not get so bad), I'll start skadi tomorrow, since it requires a little more time. :) Sorry for my bad English, I'm Brazilian.
