Owen Jones, the Welshman, is a melee Strength hero who fights for the League of Bearded Gentlemen. His mysterious Welsh ways mean that he can play a variety of roles effectively, whether it be roaming the jungle or assisting in the lanes. Owen's well-rounded stats mean that he can quite confidently take care of enemies without need of assistance, and his diverse abilities supplement this well. Call of the Flock allows Owen to gain minions in the form of powerful sheep that do his bidding, making even the most careless of enemies wary. Using The Seed, Owen can support his allies and keep his enemies at bay without going too near, and his Dragon Blood allows him to buff himself and his allies as they venture into enemy territory. And when the time calls for it, Owen can use the ancient arts and summon The Greatest Sapling, disabling his enemies while his allies finish them off. Coupled with his powerful auto-attack, these abilities allow Owen to prosper in the earlygame, and still make a stand later on.
The Wars of Temm Spekk have had far-reaching consequences all over the Nine Realms, and as such even the reclusive Welsh have become interested in the conflict. To observe and perhaps intervene, they sent an ambassador to Pelinor, the enigmatic Owen Jones.
The Welsh are notoriously protective over their ways and customs, and Owen is no different. A man of few words, he only speaks what is necessary, and yet what he says is always filled with timeless wisdom. Owen understands the world in ways that others do not, sees clarity where his friends may see a muddle.
While Owen may seem like a peaceful fellow, he is not averse to violence should the need arise. His power manifests mainly in his ability to conjure unearthly sheep from beyond the Void - creatures of great strength. These sheep have helped Owen in many a fight.
Owen's presence in the Court of Acrylion has become a welcome one, as his counsel has been invaluable on many occasions, and has served as a reminder that the Welsh are always observing.
Owen uses his Welshness to call upon the Flocks of old, summoning several powerful sheep to do his bidding. The sheep that appear can either be melee or ranged, and will have different attributes accordingly. If Owen sustains enough damage the sheep will become enraged and their strength will be boosted.

Using Call of the Flock will cause any current sheep to die.
Owen has a great many tricks in his arsenal, and can infect units with a magical seed that either saps (enemies) or restores (allies) their health for a period of time. Seeds are generated over time and when Owen has one he can use it whenever he likes.

Owen's foray into the world of botany has left him with some interesting weapons...
The dragon blood boils in the heart of every Welshman, and so it boils strongly in that of Owen. It grants impressive bonuses upon him and his allies, including lifesteal, movement speed and armour.

The Welsh are known for their pact with the dragons.
The Greatest Sapling
Owen uses the ancient arts to channel an enormous tree that envelops anything in its path. Any unit caught in the radius of the tree will become trapped until the tree vanishes. After the initial impact damage (which affects both allies and enemies), enemies will be damaged over time and allies will be healed. Units can escape from the tree by damaging the branch capturing them, and units outside the tree can attack it directly with attacks and abilities. If the tree is destroyed before the ability ends, any damage dealt to enemies will be dealt to Owen and he will be stunned.
Damage per second: 20/40/60
Heal per second: 50/100/150
Attacks to break branch: 5/10/15
Attacks to destroy tree: 20/30/40
Owen's intensive study into the Welsh ways have led him to discover their most secret art.
