'Sup, guys. I'm back with another suggestion for a potential unit.
Berkut - Duma's Knight
[WEAPON]: Kreimhild (Lance, unique)
Might: 16. If unit is attacked by foe using sword, axe, lance, or dragonstone, unit receives Def/Res+4 during combat.
Boosts damage dealt by 50% of unit's Def
[B]: Coral Ring
Restores 10 HP at the start of each turn. (Skill cannot be inherited.)
[C]: Hone Cavalry
Grants adjacent cavalry allies Atk/Spd+6 through their next actions at the start of each turn.
Shamed, humiliated, and usurped by the Zofian hero and bastard Rigelian Prince, Albein Alm Rudolf II, Berkut sacrificed his betrothed, Rinea, in a fit of rage and grief to the Fell God Duma in exchange for dark power great enough to defeat his hated cousin Alm once and for all.
This power gives Barkut much more offensive prowess in exchange for some of his previous bulk. As of posting this, I'm still debating his stats. I'm cinsidering shaving a bit off his HP to increase his SPD, but given that he still retains SOME bulk, I feel like the SPD being a bit lower is a fairer balance.
Berkut's lance after his pact with Duma. Canonically, it grants DEF/RES +5 as well as the Phantasm ability (basically Aegis). So to make it more fair and keep it in the confines of Heroes' abilities, I changed it to Close Defense 2. Potentially, it could maybe be forged to grant Distant Defense 2 as well. Maybe.
I chose this ability primarily as a nod to the Wildfire ability that Berkut has during his final showdown.
Basically Arvis' Recovery Ring, made to fit with Berkut's appearances. I was having a hard time finding abilities unique to Berkut from his final battle, since he has...well...none that can be applied to Heroes beyond Kreimhild. So I looked back one battle, where he wields the Coral Ring, which grants a Recovery effect.
When in doubt, team buff. I considered making Cavalier Pulse, but I decided that was a bad idea.
