Barq was born into the military's front lines. His father was a young soldier, his mother lived in a small town near the edge of the Noxian and Demacian border. Soldiers were frequent in this town and Barq revelled in the stories of battle. When Barq was eight, his mother grew ill and died. With nowhere else to go, Barq joined the military, hoping to serve with his father. With ruthless precision and tact Barq completed countless missions his superiors thought to be impossible. Spending most of his time behind enemy lines, poisoning, assassinating, and ambushing enemy soldiers forged Barq into a ruthless monster on the battlefield. Demacians have referred to Barq as an evil spirit, no one ever saw him enter, no one ever saw him leave. Not long ago Garen the Might of Demacia was on the front lines. With the greatest opportunity presenting itself, Barq intended to kill Garen, and demoralize the Demacian armies for months to come. Barq crept quietly into the Demacian encampment and ambushed Garen. Garen proved to be harder to kill than Barq expected and the two fought into the middle of the encampment. Barq was exposed, surrounded, and now the focus of one of Demacias greatest warriors. Thinking quickly he began cutting through countless soldiers. Barely evading Garen, Barq cut a path to the oddly quiet battlefield and escaped into the black of night. Garen would never forget Barq, and since Barq was now exposed as a Noxian operative, he would be forced to return to the front lines, fighting battles head on. Barq requested entrance to the league hoping to put his skills of deception and assassination to better use.
