Time for our favorite Armordillo to get a judgement, it also contains a bit of a Zyra spoiler

Observation:

The Armordillo's shell is quite an durable carapace from the immediate observation of the countless broken blades, arrows, lashes and dents to the shell. thanks to the magic it had absorbed from the Plague Jungles the shell could resist all but the toughest of magical spells in Runeterra. No hextech weapon could penetrate the shell he has crafted for himself. It approached the Doors of Acceptance with the following words...

"The True Opponent Lies within"

It did not know the words, only know there is something ahead of it...Rammus walked into the door not knowing any better but the orders it was given by someone a long time ago...

Reflection

It had lost track of the time it had wandered from his home...

Rammus was in the inhospitable area that is the Plague Jungle. The very environment an anathema to sentient life, it had claimed so many lives yet life seemingly continued to live against the malevolent magical storms beyond the great barrier. Rammus had spent almost a month inside this jungle now, it had eaten plants and roots that got in his way across the Jungle, Rammus has spent a while contemplating his journey, trying to forget the tragedy wrought upon him a long time ago.

It can only remember the magical cataclysm when a Shuriman Seer went insane and caused another storm of dark energy to be strike where his home was...memories so scant that the only thing it remembered was unfathomable creatures that attacked his kin without mercy and other bipedal being who's mind were slowly going insane as the creatures devoured them for their master...

It had no choice but find greener pastures...but the journey was never kind to him...

Rammus took a nap on a bed of vines, the sweet tasting fruit he ate earlier must have caused drowsiness to him. His nap however was distracted by the smell of something familiar...

Shuriman Cacti...a delicacy known to his kin as one bite can keep them hydrated for months without the need for water...not edible to humans. It pursues the waft of the flower like a frenzied beast. Rammus curls into a ball to find the cacti soon as it drives him completely ravenous. The creature soon becomes a rolling ball of destruction, cutting apart plant life as it rolled past them, only to stumble upon a maze...

The maze was nothing like the untamed jungle that he was waylaid in for the last couple of months, perfect formations of shrubs act as walls for him to overcome, the thicket of branches served as barrier, the maze was living to say the least...it had been walking aimlessly in search of something and he can almost reach it. Rammus was about to reach the cacti when he felt vines taking hold of him...the cacti bloomed and there was a bright light...images of a woman who is covered in vines beckoning him to come over here...

"You don't make for much of an appetizing meal...a hard shell like body. No trace of magic beyond the plants you callously devoured..." Said the woman with a spiteful voice.

"But you will be useful as my guide beyond this lifeless jungle." She said as her vines slowly lash out at Rammus' body and her body protrudes a sweet scent that left him barely able to defend himself

Rammus' shell was resilient to the vines' attempts to strangle him. But the scent commanded him to surrender his free will to her...in desperation it broke free and taunted the woman with a snide insult who then began whipping him with several vines and Rammus in turn curled up in defense, causing the vines to lash back at her. The attacks however were an exercise in futility. Her body's wound regrow themselves without much of a notice and she only needed a servant to command...the Shurima Cacti Flower grew to a full bloom that fired an unstoppable thorn that left it impaled haplessly against the wall...

It remembered...

"Why did you want join the league" said the woman who sat beside his badly injured body, huddled up trying to hide from her...

It drew a scribble of her, a picture of her following with him, with a couple of Armordillos waiting for Rammus, but he did not know where they were.

"So you are waiting for a woman who turned you into Armordillo who promised you to find creatures like you..."

It spoke for the first time...

"Ok"

The woman then whispered to his ear, the scent lingering in him, letting his guard down...

"How does it feel exposing your mind"

It did not answer about it's thoughts being intruded. He had already been entralled by a powerful woman. It curled back into a defensive stance, waiting for her to go away.

He soon got up to realized it was back in the same place he was when he was given his powers...an empty dark place.

It was another step in the Rammus' journey...

Shedding a new shell, Rammus scampers out of door and waiting for the woman who will soon come for a chance at a second life...

You know, you got that last part wrong. He doesn't say yes. He says "Ok."
