Bernheim is a tanky magic dealer that grows stronger overtime with his stacks buffs and debuff.
Pros and Cons
+ Unique mechanical: Bernheim does not use mana + Enormous self buff (up to 100% ATK-DEF from his UW) + All of his skills are AoE, especially his S3 which has a great range + Anti-buff and dispell + Anti-heal & AMP M + High scaling
- Long skill animation due to low attack speed - UW & UT reliant - Long cooldown - No reliable CC
- Bernheim is first of all a PvP Hero but he's also good in PvE.
- Bernheim is really nice in wall teams, but he's also a good counter to them. With his S1 Light, he can use his first skill almost immediately.
- If you want to use him in PvE, he should be your main DPS since he needs a lot of investment before dealing great damage. He's also good against Xanadus and Shakmeh thanks to his anti-heal debuff and AoE skills.
- However, against single target content, Bernheim is less effective.

- Item introduction: The name of this demonic sword means 'the one who cannot be satiated' and 'the one with ceaseless craving.' It has the power to absorb all forms of energy, evil or holy, to use them as it's own. It has it's own will, and a character that is very temperamental, scatterbrained, and cruel. Even Queen Artemia does not know the exact reason why this demonic sword was sealed under the Central Church in Penteonia, but rumor says that Targarios was a Dark Lord in the distant past. Considering it's frivolous character, that might seem unlikely. However, there is no doubt that it has devastating powers.

- Soul Weapon Story: In the past, there was a dark lord who became consumed by endless voracity and thirst. He proceeded to become an embodiment of catastrophe who consumed everything in his path like a plague, and became known as the ‘Kiln of Futility’. To stop this voracious dark lord from ravaging the world, the young prince of Penteonia desperately challenged the dark lord, and defeated him. The dark lord was then sealed inside the sword named Targarios and was moved to the central church of Penteonia. Even in his sealed state, Targarios searched persistently for an innocent lamb who would free him from the seal. He continuously whispered his voice of temptation, and finally, his wish was fulfilled when Bernheim took Targarios into his hands. Though he had an atrocious past behind, the former dark lord became an entity with an extremely bizarre personality, and he managed to sense the darkness residing deep within Bernheim, who sort of gave him freedom. Targarios, upon examining Bernheim's inner shadow of consciousness which Bernheim himself is unaware of, decided that he will get along nicely with Bernheim, a rather poor human struggling to reach for the light, Even though his body is sealed inside a sword, Targarios will proudly show its power as the dark lord of futility, whenever Bernheim wishes for strength.

Story from Patch Notes:
There are many unique mercenaries that wander the Kingdom. Rogue soldiers, criminals, or aristocrats that have fallen in disgrace and run from their home and families. However, no matter how unique your background is or how acclaimed your strength is, the battlefield is an unforgivable lover. Most of the mercenaries work for clans and guilds in order to survive in this ruthless world … but there are exceptions. One of them, Bernheim, is among the best mercenaries in the Kingdom. He is known for his destructive power when jumping onto the battlefield and effortlessly destroying his surroundings. Rumors mention a man taciturn and solitary, but Bernheim doesn’t even bother to listen to the hearsay - only he knows the truth.
“…Why do I wield this sword? … It is better to remain ignorant of this. But I will tell you one thing. The strength of this sword is not a power you should aspire to have.”
Born in a noble family in Penteonia, Bernheim von Lachelima was gifted with outstanding martial skills. He had the strength of a giant and excellent judgment, so it was undeniable that he would make a great knight. However, he had a fatal flaw that kept him from being successful in Penteonia: He could not use the power of light at all. No matter how hard he tried how strong his faith and will were, the power of light did not answer to his calling. Although all he ever wanted was to serve his nation and the Queen, the fact that his incapability was keeping him from being more than a low-level knight frustrated him. Bernheim did not give up and trained hard to handle the power of light, bus his constant lack of progress slowly started to weaken his mind. One day, he visited the Central Church to study the power of light and it's mechanism. It was when he was quietly reading a book that he heard a sound. It was an angelic voice calling for him. The long-accumulated frustration of Bernheim led him to where the voice was coming from, a room sealed with multiple magic barriers in the basement of the church. As he moved closer to it, the barriers vanished as if they were never there. What he saw inside the room was a sword in the shape of an angel, exuding blind light.
"You are the chosen one" said the sword, drawing him near with holy light. Thinking that his relentless effort had finally paid off, he slowly grasped the sword. Then his mind was drawn to the deepest darkness. The darkness that captured him-it was the endless shadowy void of futility. A vessel that could never be filled; a whole other universe. In the vast darkness, Bernheim felt his mind deteriorating and his existence fading away. His mind and body was slowly being encroached by a dark, ominous power. However, Bernheim was also one of the Penteonian Knights, a Knight of Lightwho swore not to be defeated by darkness. He rose from the shrouding darkness, regaining consciousness with his indomitable spirit. When he came to his senses, lying on the floor, there was a giant black sword in his hand. The demonic sword with appearance of a demon was laughing and mocking the knight who broke away from the path of light. Eventually, Bernheim was banished from Penteonia, and he started to live a new life as a mercenary in Vespia Empire with that malicious, foul-mouthed demonic sword in his hand...
