Iona the Alchemist is a Tower hero. Iona starts with a spell book and the spell Magic Arrow.


Iona does not appear in the story text of any campaign levels.


The in-game description "Increases the Attack and Defense skills of any Genies or Master Genies for each level attained after 5th level." is erroneous in "each level attained" moment, and lacks the speed bonus information. (Description is fixed in HotA Horn of the Abyss).

Unlike the native terrain speed bonus, the creature specialty speed bonus can affect the hero's movement points in case the creature is the slowest one in the army.
