The Queen's Adjutant

A Ranged Support providing reconnaissance and healing through Stealth.

Former field medic Amanda Haley was captured by the Queen of Blades long ago, made into a Zerg for her, and worked as the servitor of the streams of memory data collected by the Zerg. Upon the Queen's return, she provided her knowledge and support once again to Her Majesty.

-Adapted Camouflage gives Izsha a unique survival tool and utility. Be careful with it though, skillshots can still reveal you and make you vulnerable.
-Transfusion is a consistent heal that can be used within Stealth. Use it on yourself to stay in lane and soak when you can't fight.
-Poisoned Stinger is a fast way to dish out some damage to Heroes. Make sure you're in position to use it or you might hit the wrong target.
-Worm Assault can be useful in a CC chain with other Heroes. The worm left behind afterwards can keep enemies from catching you while mounted.
-Leviathan gives Izsha a strong tool of area denial. Lock enemies out of an objective with it or keep them pressured in a team fight.
-Pure Essence is the better supportive Ability in sustained fights. Warriors and other high Health Heroes gain the most benefit from it due to its percentage based healing.

+Increased survival through Stealth
+CC options/talents
+Strong Heroics
+Better healing on healthy teams

-Low Health without Stealth
-Low damage
-Little utility

First and foremost about the character itself, you didnt really explain how izsha would move...period. I mean shes literally connected to the leviathan from the ceiling. I know Abathur didnt move in SC but he has said himself he has and is capable ("wandered the tunnels of char, feral"). Izsha has literally never been able to leave the leviathan and was created for the sole purpose of basically being a combat log. She is probably the only zerg in existence incapable of fighting, from what we have seen in SC so far.

Now, all this doesnt mean she CANT be a hero who can move, fight, and what have you. Its just odd you ignore this glaring issue without any backstory or explanation to make it plausible.

The next part is purely if you was looking for feedback on the kit itself. If not, then disregard.

For the kit itself, its just boring and doesnt really seem to have a clear and distinct direction or theme. Just a lot of generic type abilities for example, you said

-Adapted Camouflage gives Izsha a unique survival tool and utility.

Its not unique, its literally the same trait zeratul and nova have and they was created back in 2013 as one of the first heroes. We've become so much more progressive and creative than this.

Despite that Izsha has never had anything to do with stealth, if you want to make a stealth support, you need to OWN it otherwise scrap it. Really double down on it. Stealth in heroes has always been for offensive purposes. How creative can you be in making it from a defensive/utility standpoint I wonder. If you want to go this route, make her whole kit revolve around it like Valeera

Q is just generic heal hero for X amount.
W is just generic deal X damage
E is kinda intersting
R1- is literally Tyrande's starfall
R2- Is generic heal hero

To be fair, this is probably one of the hardest designs you could possible do in the starcraft universe because Izsha has such a clean slate of what she COULD do while also being super restrictive because of character design.
