I enjoyed writing this. I don't know a ton about the lore of this game, but Lucian's story has always intrigued me (WOW I'm messed up). Anyway, I hope you enjoy, let me know what you think!


The Strongest Broken Man
By Deathley


Am I afraid of the dark, or is the dark afraid of me?
For every demon in this world is a demon that will bleed
I used to walk beside my wife; we were the strongest soldiers of the light
Destroying every enemy that was locked within our sights
Weapons carved from stone with the power of the sun
Hunting every creature down that tried to fight or run
We could not be defeated for none could match our skill
Our spirit was relentless, our power growing with each kill
But then there was a monster that preyed on living flesh
He was devious and cruel, and was known only as Thresh
The shadow isles his playground, the collector of all souls
He caught Senna in a trap and took the only thing that made me whole
Now a half of a man, I’ve come to slaughter each and every one
And I will never stop until they’ve all tasted the muzzle of my guns
A man with nothing left to lose, retribution all that I desire
To watch Thresh burn for an eternity in the light and in the fire
I am alone and fueled by rage; I will end what he began
Slowly going mad with hatred; Runeterra’s strongest broken man
I’m not afraid of the dark, nor am I afraid to die a lonely death
But I will destroy each and every demon until my final burning breath

Lucian is one of my favorite characters, and I think you captured him really well ^-^
Nicely done:3

Very well written! I agree that it captures Lucian very well! The rhyming and cadence is also very well done. Although I don't know if I just say it weird but I always forget desire and fire rhyme...I guess they do. Yeah can't really find anything glaringly bad--nice work!

And you're not messed up for being intrigued by a sad story. Sometimes the saddest stories can make the most interesting characters.
