Designing a new hero-Kaldalis

HeroesoftheStorm 9 - Designing a new hero-Kaldalis

Hey there, I'd want to introduce a Hero I made about a day ago; I want to see how reddit users would think about him, and if I'm lucky enough, Blizzard might see this post and get inspired.

First of all, sorry for any minor(maybe major) grammar mistakes/non-HotS style instruction this post might have; I'm not a good english speaker, just a blizzard fanboy living in Korea(Of coarse, south). It would be so grateful if you leave a comment about my hero(or error).
