Oh so you didn't read the Original post? How cute.

Hmm...good point. Both Demacians and Noxians highly value battle, but both for different reasons, they could have been one society at one point.

I think we're going to see a Demacia vs. Noxus showdown event like the Ionia vs. Noxus one. New items and obviously a new champ to come!

When I noticed the similarities between the Demacian stained glass and the Noxian statue, I had to know more. I pulled as many books as I could out of the library at Piltover's academy. There are some sections there restricted to everyone but academy graduates. I could have gotten in on my own, but I didn't want to burn any bridges, so I had Jayce help me out. Everyone loves that guy.

The smaller one is a book of Noxian war poems. Most of what's inside is standard Noxian military fare, but the blade on the cover captured my attention.

The big one right here is an old book of fables and stories. Not all of them are entirely true, but one of them caught my eye. The character in the story is an arrogant general leading his warriors into battle and winning with ease. He has the last of his enemies cornered, but… you know what they say about pride before a fall.

A great warrior—that's right, our dark figure—appears in the battle. The arrogant general's enemies, men on the verge of death, are inspired by his presence. “They rose from their knees as though he'd lit their very blood aflame,” it says. “The shamed general watched as his men were cleaved by an army that had begged for mercy just moments before. His enemies had become murderers and butchers. As they closed on him, the general could not be certain whether they were still men at all.”
Where were the two armies from?

That HAS to be the shadowy figure with a living blade in Tryndamere's lore. It just has to be.

I have a feeling this being shows up whenever there is war, conflict or death. Most likely from the Shadow Isles. Maybe he is the "Ruined King" that Riot has hinted at before.

See what Mordekaiser knows, this seems like it's right up his alley.

Lux?
Anyway, why don't you ask Soraka about it? or i'm sure the League should have a Library with information about it. You are looking for something really really old, if Demacia and Noxus have images about it, it might be before the creation of both cities, some creature worshiped as a god by their common ancestors or some warrior who traveled all over the ancient Runeterra and now, because of the lost of information and the time, we think is (and he might also have became) some kind of god, anyway you must know some ancient temples that maybe can help you in this mistery.
