I'm clarifying.
It's a lance.


I think you are using it to compensate for something

Perhaps Kayle or Morgana might know about him.

It sounds like Razgriz.

No, person who thinks its Jarvan. Your wrong.

Cross reference Trynd's new lore with the dagger story. It's so simple.

Tryn : Struggling to survive in the harsh,frostbitten Freljord,the young Tryndamere and his people warred with other tribes over the scarce resources of the land.One such battle changed his life forever.(((((((((((Raiders ambushed Tryndamere's clan in the dead of night, and though his warriors were able to push the first wave of attackers back, they weren't prepared for the dark figure that next stepped forth. He wielded a cruel, living sword, and inspired an unhinged bloodlust in the invaders with his unearthly magic. Tryndamere's tribe was overrun within moments.))))))))))))))))With no hope of defeating the enigmatic being, Tryndamere threw himself at certain death.The dark figure swatted him aside, mortally wounding the young barbarian.

Tryndamere saw death and destruction engulf his home as his life slipped away.No one was left standing - only the screams of the dying remained.Unable to surrender to death, Tryndamere gave in fully to his wrath. His blood boiled and his anger consumed him, banishing his mortality. He staggered to his feet - barely able to take hold of his sword - steeling himself for the decisive confrontation with the shadowy being. But the dark figure did not even lift his blade, and instead gave Tryndamere a knowing smile as he withdrew into the shadows. That was the last time the barbarian ever saw his nemesis.


Dagger story: Here's where it gets more interesting. (((((((((The tribesmen of that region say the figure on the blade is a legend, a “warrior-savior” who appeared during a battle against a hated rival tribe several years ago. They'd almost lost the battle, but the warrior appeared and led them to a crushing victory over their enemies.)))))))))))))))))))))) They left no one alive, but when the tribesmen went to celebrate with their champion, he'd already vanished. They say that - in his memory - they took the bones of their enemies as trophies.

ITS THE SAME STORY. THIS IS TRYND'S RIVAL!!

This is the promo for the frejilord update this is not related to the new champion at all.

Oh by the way it was confirmed that its not a watcher.


You can't deny the similarities. If he is not a watcher himself and he predates the watchers, then he created the watchers

SolemnIllusions:
Ah, Ezreal. I don't believe that we've met.

I am 'Solemn', an assistant at the Library of Progress (a portion of the Piltover Academy of Science and Progress that I believe you have become quite familiar with over the years, if your checkout list proves to be any example of your love of research). While normally content to categorize the vast amount of material in our collection (and fetch tomes for intrepid adventurers, such as yourself!), I could not help but notice the pomp and fanfare that accompanied your entrance into the Library earlier today - it took quite an effort from the faculty to hold back the tide of well-wishers that threatened to spill gratitude and Sinful Succulence-brand baked goods onto the carpet.

But having Jayce as a companion does that, I suppose - the man can hardly show his face any longer without drawing a crowd.

Celebrity privileges aside, I could not help but wonder just why you would need to access the graduates' section of the library, so I took it upon myself to 'relieve' one of the other librarians in that area, and took his place as you began your hunt for information upon the rather interesting figure that your report describes. I believe that one of my fellows was the one who brought you your stack of literature, as well - and if your stay at the library was any guide, you've unearthed quite a bit about what you're looking for.

Still, I couldn't help but peer over your shoulder as I passed once or twice. I do apologize for that, but you seemed so interested in reading that resisting the urge was impossible.

Something rather odd did catch my eye, though, when I glimpsed the figure for myself: the blade, which bears a striking resemblance to another weapon in this land's arsenal. Intrigued, I did a bit of digging after you left, and fished a book of Demacian arms and armor from the archives.

Take a look at this, would you?

The artist here has done a spectacular job of depicting a triumphant Crown Prince Jarvan IV, but it is his lance that draws my attention.

Flip it over, and we get something like this...

Odd, isn't it? The lance bears a resemblance to the weapon depicted in your wood carving, which leads me to wonder: might the royal line of Demacia have been influenced by the actions of this general? Even more striking, though, is the fact that Prince Jarvan's helmet also bears a resemblance to the helm of the figure painted upon your Shuriman urn - had I not taken a second look, I might have supposed that particular piece of art to be another portrayal of the prince, and not some other being. The wings, as well, seem to remind me of those of another figure: Kayle or Morgana, perhaps, or even a link to Shyvana's more... weighty form?

While my shift is long since over, I've left my notes and the book on Demacian weaponry with an attendant at the library's front desk: simply ask for it, and they'll be sure to give it to you. Should you find this information useful, I'd be happy to help escort you into the graduates' section in future endeavors, as well - it's not incredibly difficult to adjust the schedules of the staff so that a certain adventurer might find a moment to slip in and out of the cordoned-off areas now and again.

That being said, please remember that the Library is most definitely not a cafeteria - while our good Jayce was kind enough to resist the offerings of grateful followers, several muffins and cookies' worth of crumbs are notoriously difficult to sweep out of the carpet.


- Solemn

Remove this immediately! All these allegations are just... Wrong! We have very little resemblance, and might I ask AGAIN... Give. Me. Back. My. Stained. Glass. WINDOW.

Tch. Shyvana is quite pleased with everything about me. More so than, if you will.

Ezreal,

While training for my upcoming battles in the fields of justice, an image came to me. If my memory doesn't fail me, Zed - The master of shadows, has blades whose shape resemble the one of your mysterious entity....
