Wingrave, nicknamed The Seeker, is a templar clad in spell-forged armor and sustained by his faith in the Architects. He’s a natural leader and true champion, always ready to defend the innocent and to smite the forces of evil.
Wingrave follows the path of a tank/support role. He excels at close combat. His abilities revolve around summoning shields and healing allies. All of his abilities are straightforward, making him fairly simple to play. His signature weapon is a sword and shield that deals large amounts of guard break damage.
Wingrave has four different abilities, and one passive. Two of those abilities heal, and two of those abilities form a shield. All of his abilities, including his passive ability, are very much centered around healing and support. Wingrave’s abilities are as follows:

Backstory / Lore
The following information was retrieved directly from the official website:
Wingrave is an Archon Templar, clad in spell-forged armor and sustained by his faith in the Architects. Long before the Gloomfall, he fought monsters in the shadows and defended the people of the Empire from the terrifying threats of the Maze. He is a natural leader and a true hero, borne up by his honest faith in the light and the Empire.
These are the things that Wingrave’s Echo remembers when he is first reborn. Of all the Champions, Wingrave is the one who most feels like a hero—a true champion of light. However, as the player uncovers more of Wingrave’s past, they will uncover the darker side of the Empire and the Archons… the fact that not all denizens of the Maze are monsters and brutal actions like the massacre of the monks at Aurelian. Ultimately, Wingrave’s Echo will have the opportunity to be a better man than the original—to live up to his ideals and be the champion he could and should have been.
