Gelu is one of the main heroes and protagonists in the games 'Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade' and 'Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Shadow of Death'

Character's games and general info

Gelu appears in the following games:

  • Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade(first appearance)
  • Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Shadow of Death
  • Heroes Chronicles: The Sword of Frost

Little is known about Gelu's true origins. Gelu is a half-Vori elf who was found by General Morgan Kendal abandoned as a baby. He was raised by the Erathian military, namely the Talon brigade. At an early age, since he knew little else, Gelu entered the Erathian military. Because of his tactical and stealth skills, he was appointed the Captain of the elite special forces company known as Forestguard. Under Gelu's command, the Forestguard company became the best guerrilla unit in the entire Erathian military and perhaps the whole world.

Gelu fought in the Kreegan-Erathian war alongside Catherine and Roland Ironfists, leading Erathian forces to many victories. He successfully thwarted Lucifer Kreegan's plans on acquiring the Armageddon's Blade and claimed the legendary sword for himself.

In the prequel(HoMM3: The Shadow of Death) to both HoMM3 and HoMM3: Armageddon's Blade, Gelu fought, alongside other heroes, the vile and powerful necromancer Sandro.

In Heroes Chronicles: The Sword of Frost, Gelu was at odds with the vicious barbarian king of Krewlod, Kilgor. Their conflict doomed the world of Colony to a fiery death as the Sword of Frost and Armagaddon's Blade clashed.

Equipment info, quotes, feats

  • Armageddon's Blade is a sword with nigh-planet busting capabilities. The Kreegans created the Blade to turn the world into a charred, fiery paradise… for the Kreegans, of course. Fortunately, Gelu managed to intercept the Blade and claimed it for himself. Armageddon's Blade also allows its wielder to create a very intense, virtually unavoidable rain of molten rock and fire(known, so appropriately, as 'Armageddon') in a large area around the wielder of the Blade. The wielder and his/her units are immune to Armageddon. It is said that Armageddon's Blade can slice through any known material with utter ease and reduce a person it strikes to a puddle of bubbling, molten flesh.
  • Sharpshooter's Bow is a very high-powered and highly accurate compound bow.

Character feats

Because of the nature of HoMM games, individual characters very rarely have any shown feats. However, it is known that Gelu is a highly trained soldier, quite acrobatic and has heightened elven senses. He has also learned many powerful and rare spells during his journeys and battles.
