Contego: The Sacrificial Defender

In Contego’s more spirituous days, he lived in Piltover. He was a young man with a passion for the world. He lived to work and always preformed to his absolute greatest. Having lost his parents in the past he lived with a great friend of his fathers, Corin Reveck. The man’s daughter was the world to him, and soon became just as important to Contego as well. But Piltover, as anywhere else, was not exempt from tragedy. Thanks to Piltovers’ sheriff, Caitlyn, crimes were always kept at a minimum. However, one individual cannot hold an entire city. When a group of mercenaries had arrived at Corin’s home to take hostage one who was said to be training for the League, Contego stepped in to defend. Corin, his daughter, and Contego fought off the bandits with nothing more than their fists, desperately waiting for Caitlyn to arrive. Knowing she needed to act fast, Caitlyn took aim from miles away; targeting a bandit she could see through the window. Contego noticed the red laser protruding from Caitlyn’s gun and aimed at the square of the mercenary’s back. He moved as quickly as he could to get in front of the bandit but he was too slow. The shot tore through the mercenary and landed in Corin’s skull behind him. Contego looked to the dead thug lying dead behind him, at Corin in front of him, and at the gaping hole in his torso.
The medical research in Piltover was able to save Contego’s life, but nothing could be done for Corin. Contego was distraught, for Corin’s daughter had recently suffered from a tragedy, and Corin had been doing everything in his efforts to rebuild her, Orianna, in as much of a life like representation as possible. However with Corin’s genius now gone, the robotic form was not ever completed. Contego set out in attempt to accomplish Orianna’s dream of entering the League. Contego pursued her dream until he found his way at the League’s gate. Contego keeps to himself for the most part, but can be occasionally found trying to socialize with the robotic shell Corin created to represent Orianna. On the battlefield, Contego vows never to let an ally fall.
