Mama Hong

The Big Mama

Hong Xiuying (洪 秀 英), or more commonly known by the people in her neighborhood as Mama Hong, the Big Mama, was a renowned Singaporean cook and later, a freedom fighter as well. Her shop, the Dragon's Kitchen, sold many of her famous foods. From Fire Noodles to Herbal Chicken to Braised Porkbelly Rice Bowls, everyone can get their stomachs' fill in her kitchen. Passionate and brave, she runs her shop with a fiery disposition. It is not uncommon for customers to leave with a few scathing remarks. But then again, it was all worth her cooking.

It wasn't until the Omnics invaded that she saw her home destroyed and her people displaced, becoming refugees of war. Mama Hong did her best, setting up food stations to feed as many people as she can afford. However, when the Omnics showed no sign of stopping their invasion and her nation's military forces being pushed back helplessly, Mama Hong took it upon herself to rally her people. She became the leader of Singapore's liberation front: The Red Dragons. With her massive flamethrower and an arsenal of deadly firecrackers, she became an unstoppable force to be feared by those who wish to impede her fight.

Now, Mama Hong has entered the Nexus. Armed with her trusty flamethrower, firecrackers, and some good food to share, those who wish to stop her will find themselves against one very angry Mama.

Mama Hong is a flamethrower-wielding Bruiser who becomes angry under heavy Crowd Control and can fight back.

Health: 2875
Resource: 100 Dragon Fire
Attack Damage: 95
Attack Range: 4.0 (in a 35 degree angle)
Attack Speed: 1.11

Inspired by concept artist Inkarat Mittongtare in ArtStation:

Combat Trait

Dragon Hustle
Whenever Mama Hong receives Crowd Control effects, she becomes angry, gaining 10 Armor and 10% Movement Speed for 5 seconds, stacking up to 3 times. Upon reaching maximum stacks, gain Unstoppable for 1 second. This can only occur every 15 seconds.

Dragon Fire
Mama Hong generates 0.5 Dragon Fire per second after 1 second of not consuming it and 3 Dragon Fire per enemy hit by her Basic Attacks. Each point of Dragon Fire decreases the duration of incoming Crowd Control effects by 0.3%.

Mama Hong's trait allows her to become even more durable and dangerous the more she receives CC effects, giving her Armor and MS up to 30 Armor and 30% bonus MS. Upon reaching maximum stacks, she gains Unstoppable for a short duration but this can only occur once every 15 seconds. This makes her deceptively dangerous when the enemy thinks they can chain CC her down.
Her resource bar, Dragon Fire, regenerates automatically in small quantities but can be increased significantly by Basic Attacking enemies, and it also reduces incoming CC effects' duration by a % for each point she has. Dragon Fire is consumed to fuel her Q.
