Did my hero idea become canon?

So, I made a hero idea a while ago here:https://forums.ironhidegames.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=26676

The gist of it was a male elf hero named "Sylas" that wore a blue cloak with a hood, carried a crossbow and a dagger, and was somehow linked to Umbra; the boss from KRF.

Lo and behold, KRV comes out and there's a hero named "Asra":

And who is she? A female hero with a purple cloak and hood, who carries a crossbow and a dagger. Her face looks awfully familiar too:

Both Sylas and Asra have a poison ability and a ranged crossbow volley ability. And the real kicker? sylAS + umbRA = ASRA

I'm not mad or anything, in fact I'm quite delighted that someone from Ironhide found my hero idea intriguing enough to give it their own twist and make them a part of their next game. :D

I don't expect a shoutout or any kind of official recognition, just wanted to point out some rather interesting correlations and/or coincidences between one of my own ideas and an official hero released over a year later.

You could make a long list of fan made ideas that could have inspired actual game features. It's more than likely a coincidence and you're just reading into it too much because it's your idea you se reflected in the real thing. That's not to say they haven't looked at it and it's just a thought that's floated around and come up in a meeting, but you're not the first person to have had their ideas 'brought to life'.
