Lore:
Throughout Valoran, the resolve of Demacia's military is alternately celebrated or despised, but always respected. Their "zero tolerance" moral code is strictly upheld by civilians and soldiers alike. In combat, this means Demacian troops may not make excuses, flee, or surrender under any circumstance. These principles are espoused to their forces by unrivaled demagogues who lead by example. Garen, the valiant warrior who bears the title "the Might of Demacia", is the paradigm to which these leaders are compared. Thousands of great heroes have risen and fallen on the bloody battlefields between Demacia and its preeminent rival, Noxus. It was beneath their mighty banners of war that Garen first met steel with Katarina, the Blade Mistress. The infantrymen who beheld this event (and survived) commented that it seemed as though the two were locked in a mortal waltz set against a symphony of clashing blades.

Garen, the pride of the Demacian military and the leader of the Dauntless Vanguard, returned from this battle breathless for the first time in his career, though some speculate this was due to reasons other than exhaustion. The plausibility of these rumors was bolstered when, in every instance thereafter, Garen seized the opportunity to encounter the Blade Mistress again. A paragon of Demacian ethic, Garen never entertained such allegations, for he knew others couldn't understand. Even simply the pursuit of a worthy opponent on the battlefield is, to a true warrior, the reason to rise each morning. The promise of one, particularly one so beautifully and diametrically opposed, is the validation of his existence.

"The most effective way to kill an opponent is to slice through the man next to him."
- Garen, on front line strategy

Abilities:
Decisive Strike:
Garen's speed is increased for the next several seconds, and his next attack deals bonus damage and silences the enemy target.

Courage:
Passive: Garen permanently gains additional magic resistance and armor for each enemy unit he kills.
Active: Garen is surrounded by a defensive shield that reduces all incoming damage for the next few seconds.

Judgment:
Garen spins in a whirlwind with his blade for several seconds, dealing damage to all nearby enemies.

Demacian Justice (ultimate):
Garen brings down Demacian Justice on his opponent, dealing massive amounts of damage, plus additional damage for health his opponent has already lost.

Perseverance (passive):
Garen rapidly regenerates health if he is out of combat for several seconds.
