The Shadow Isles - Mordekaiser and Hecarim: A reference to the four Horsemen?
While skimming through the thread about "The LoL Villain" someone wrote about Mordekaiser and Hecarim and I came to a conclusion:
The four Horsemen of the Apocalypse symbolize four disastrous events.
These "events" in order of their appearance are:
(They are also part of Yorrick's Skillset, who in return is a gravedigger from the Shadow Island!)
The interesting thing is, that the first and the second, Conquest and War, really fit Mordekaiser and Hecarim! While not exactly Horsemen (Well, in case of Hecarim you could take that term literal) they fit the description:
Mordekaiser was the First to enter Valoran.
He is a General of some unknown force. (Conquest)
As stated in his Lore, Mordekaiser is drawn to the sick and ill. (Pestilence)
Hecarim was the Second to enter Valoran.
He wants to wage war and destroys the countryside of Demacia (War)
When Hecarim was confronted by Demacian Forces, he said:
"This is merely the beginning. No mortal army can withstand the might of the Shadow Isles."
(Hint to Famine and Death?)
This leaves me with explaining why Yorrick came to Valoran. Maybe he functions as a Herald to the dark Host?
I didn't bother searching if such a Thread already exists, so have mercy.
Hecarim is definately based off of the horseman of war, and Mordekaiser was probably inspired by the horseman of pestilence.
You're forgetting Eve, who is hinted to be from the Shadow Isles. Based on her vampiric nature of feeding on pain, she could be famine.
Dang i can't wait for a matching skin set
famine: ___ (i'd pay to see a champ that kills his enemies by making him not eat, lol)
pestilence: eve? dang it twitch y u no shadow isle
death: morde? (metal music and what not)
Honestly, I should think that Death should have a champion of its own. Not just all reskins to fill in the blanks. As in Reaper, Scythe, Soul Harvester, Death. If anything, I would like him to look similar to the Darksiders interpretation of Death.
Nasus can be famine.
Get it? Because he eats so much food that there's none left for anyone else.
He's fat, is what I'm saying.
I really hope they work on this and yes matching skins would be cool
Oh my... you might be on to something here!
Though like Skagwatcher stated!
Check this thread out, it had some really cool conversation about this topic:
"I think we have only seen 2 of the 4 horsement"
