King Astaris the Great was born in a small town around the capital. The father in his family was a merchant because he always lived in prosperity and did not depend on anything. Having received a basic education, he noticed that, thanks to his eloquence, he was able to convince people to follow him ... At the age of 18, he gathered an army of 15 thousand people and went to war against King Ridrich II and was able to win after losing only 5 thousand people. Only thanks to his sharp mind and excellent tactics of battle ... But the enemies had an army that was ascending the troops of Astaris in 2 times !!! Having defeated the army of Ridrich II, he himself took the throne. "And the era of the reign of Astaris the great began!"
Astaris, peacefully developed the economy of his kingdom, intending to create trade relations with all possible states. Having established peaceful relations with the two nearest states, Astaris did not intend to stop ... He and his delegation went to another state in the hope of concluding a peace treaty. Entering the throne room with his retinue, he saw a beautiful lady sitting next to the royal throne, this girl was the king's daughter, her name was Adele, Astaris fell in love with this woman and immediately asked the king for his daughter's hand ...
All the king, Adele and even Astaris himself were shocked ... The angry king ordered to send them out of his kingdom, but Astaris did not give up so easily ... Since King Gerton first refused to give his daughter up to the crown, Astaris decided to act radically. Summoning troops from all parts of his state, he went to war against King Gerton. One hundred thousand army marched to the sound of drums holding banners. The war lasted three days and three nights, and all the time screams and clinking of swords were heard cutting through flesh. Breaking into the throne room, Astaris, who fought on the front line, personally walked through the mountains of corpses and chopped off the head of King Gerton the first. Adele was delighted with Astaris's determination and agreed to become his wife. He carried her out of the throne room in his arms and waited for the joyful cries of his warriors. But the battlefield was completely silent, Everyone froze in fear looking at the sky. A huge red shard flew to the ground, eager to destroy everything in its path. Astaris already realized that today's triumph will end with his death and the death of Adele, as well as the death of all his subjects. He grinned sadly, looking into the eyes of his beloved. He pressed his lips to her and closed his eyes enjoying the last moments of his life.

(Okay, I think that after the death of Astaris and Adele, they will become undead, affected by the curse of corruption. They will be a double boss and depending on who dies first, they will overcome different forms)
Astaris is a heavily armored warrior with black hair and a half rotten face. a red aura of corruption emanates from the body.
He has 5 types of attacks before awakening and 8 after
The first attack is the most common hit (Vertical or horizontal) and represents the basic attack.
the second attack is a damage-reinforced vertical strike with a widening attack area (attack range is about 8 meters long and 2 meters wide at the end of the attack)
Further, we have a horizontal cut reinforced by damage, this attack has the shape of a half circle. The attack takes 5 meters in front of the boss.
The fourth attack is a quick combo of three uses of the second attack on nearby targets
the fifth attack is spinning the boss around its axis, chasing the players and swinging your sword.
The sword deals damage in 2 meters around the boss while the boss himself becomes invulnerable for 5 seconds
(I have not yet invented the awakened form, it is clear that its damage will be increased by reducing HP and new combos and one new skill will be added)
Adele is a support boss that buffs Astaris and Debuffs targets that Astaris attacks
Adele's first skill is healing. Adele heals Astaris for 5% of his total HP every five seconds for 10 seconds
Adele's second skill is stun. Adele will stun the target that Astaris attacks for 2.5 seconds
Adele's third skill is a massive slowdown. All players participating in the battle receive -30% movement speed and -15% dodge chance
Adele's fourth skill Summon undead. Adele summons a hundred skeletons that are 10 levels less than the weakest participant in the boss battle (But not lower than level 30)
Fifth skill Adele Sacrifice. After summoning undead, Adele cannot move and make attacks for 15 seconds after this time, Adele releases a wave of energy that affects the entire battlefield
Each skeleton hit instantly dies and is converted to damage on the next rapid wave Adele releases
(I haven’t come up with the awakened state yet)
I do not have drawings of these characters .. Just imagine a warrior with a large two-handed arm and full heavy armor, as well as a neat undead girl in a dress

    Just lore wise - I'd prefer if you add some reasoning for why Adele thought it was cool that someone beheaded her dad, that part is super jarring and messed up.

    I like the idea of a fated-lovers boss - but then a Romeo&Juliet inspired back story would have stronger themes - especially if R&J accepted the power of corruption in hopes of overcoming their ill fate. (Could also tie in to the Goddess of fate)
    I wish I were deep and tragic

    I will finalize this concept and make it more detailed after I study the lore more strongly.
