This should probably get fixed before her rework, because the rework was supposed to make Sejuani more accurately fit the idea of her riding on a boar.

BRISTLE IS NEVER MENTIONED IN ANY PART OF HER LORE

Why is this? He is an integral part to her gameplay, and he has no mention whatsoever in her backstory. The in-game lines show a close bond between Bristle and Sej, but there is no apparent reason for this other than that they are battle partners. Which brings me to another point: Why are they partners? It seems to be a mutual agreement, not a horse and knight deal where the horse just fights because it isn't intelligent enough not to. Their bond seems more like that of Wilump and Nunu. I understand that here lore is interesting as is, but this is sort of a giant plot point. I hope a red reads this.

YES I KNOW THE TITLE IS A TYPO

When she assumed leadership of her tribe, Sejuani commanded her warriors to follow her example. Under her rule, the tribe grew stronger than they had ever been.
Maybe Bristle showed up when Sejuani pushed herself too hard one time?

Apparently Thresh gets two souls from Nunu and Willump, but only one soul from Sejuani, though.

That's 'cause Sej is a ginger.

I've always co-opted the background of Boris Ursus from Warhammer Fantasy to handle this:

Sejuani set off alone into the wastes of Freljord on a personal quest to hunt a great boar, as a final test decreed by her tribe's seers, and eventually came across one who was larger than any she had seen before. They fought for hours and eventually the blood spilled drew wolves to the clearing. The wolves first targeted the boar, but Sejuani lept to its aid and fought them off, being badly wounded herself in the process. Over the next few hours she drifted in and out of conciousness but found the boar standing guard over her every time, keeping the remainder of the pack at bay with its great tusks. Eventually a search party from the Winter's Claw arrived and the boar allowed them to tend to her wounds. Bristle returned with her to their encampment and the pair never left each others' side from that day on.

It works for me at least.

Why did this thread get forgotten? This is why I hate that Riot tells us to put our ideas here. They aren't dedicated enough to examining the forums based on idea rather than on views.
