Dota 2 Lore - Newell:
Newell was a sentinel of the gates of Hurbard - a prison-fortress known for holding high-ranked prisoners of the war. When a small group of Claddish officers escaped the prison, Newell was sentenced to death. On the night before the execution, the demi-god Eul came in human form to free Newell in exchange for a favor - to find the Scepter of Divinity beyond the barren deserts of the Scintillant Waste. Rumor has it that the current bearer of the Scepter, Malichen will only give it up in exchange for hats - a Hurbard prison guard's hat to be exact.
