AGATHA: THE POSSESSED WITCH
Agatha was once a member of the Grey Order of the Voodoo Lands, before she lost her child to a terrible debt. Unlike the other members, Agatha's family were granted the power of magic through an evil spirit named Malethor at the cost of their next son. For a century, a son was not born into the family, until Agatha's child. She had married another magician of the Grey Order, but he had died a month after impregnating Agatha, slain by Noxian invaders. When Agatha discovered her child was a boy, Malethor returned to collect his debt. Wreaked with agony, Agatha created a phylactery, a doll crafted from bones and cloth, that would trap her son's soul so that he may still be with her. During the ritual that would seal her son's soul, it was instead Malethor whose soul was sealed. The power of Malethor overwhelmed Agatha and her psyche was shattered, bonding with Malethor in a terrible curse. After the ritual was completed, she had heard a terrifying scream that said, "Souls! More souls! Find them for me, so that I may devour them whole and become more powerful!"
Searching for the magic that would break this bond, Agatha went to the Institute of War to find the Summoners. Other than killing Agatha, they had no other means to break the curse, however they had wards that could hold Malethor back, but they were only temporary. Until Agatha can lift her curse, she fights for the League, constantly tormented by the spirit that commands her to find souls for consumption.
