Biography

A proud and noble soldier, Garen fights at the head of the Dauntless Vanguard. He is popular among his fellows, and respected well enough by his enemies—not least as a scion of the prestigious Crownguard family, entrusted with defending Demacia and its ideals. Clad in magic-resistant armor and bearing a mighty broadsword, Garen stands ready to confront mages and sorcerers on the field of battle, in a veritable whirlwind of righteous steel.

    Demacia is a peaceful utopia where order reigns. Maintaining that order at any cost are the Mageseekers, who hunt down anyone utilizing forbidden magic. Hailing from a respected noble family, Luxanna “Lux” Crownguard is destined for a life of privilege—but is hiding a terrible secret. As her own magical light powers emerge, Lux must decide whether she stands with brother Garen and the ruling class of Demacia…or the downtrodden Mages at the fringes of society.
