Jakiro the Twin Head Dragon is a ranged intelligence hero who utilizes the powers of ice and fire with powerful linear area spells. He can freeze enemies in place with Ice Path, or slow them down with Dual Breath. He is capable of dealing heavy damage throughout the game by locking enemies inside his Macropyre, and provides great pushing power with Liquid Fire.
With high base attribute gain and relatively low mana costs, he requires few items to be effective. Jakiro is a support who can continually turn battles in his favor with good positioning. His high strength gain makes him a bit tougher than most spellcasters and his low cooldowns ensure that his downtime is very minuscule, making him a great hero for ganks, pushes and clashes across the battlefield.

|Playstyle:||Most Pyrexae dragons are hatched with one head, attuned to either ice or fire. Then there was Jakiro, an accident of nature. Possessing the might of both elements, the twin-headed dragon's Dual Breath freezes and burns simultaneously. Gobs of Liquid Fire adhere to armor and walls, melting down steel and stone alike. Retreating foes are blocked off with Ice Path, giving Jakiro ample time to roast them on his Macropyre.|
