Lore

NunuNunu
Nunu

Sometimes bonds of friendship become stronger than even bonds of blood.When those bonds link a fearless boy to a fearsome Yeti,the bond becomes a force to be reckoned with.Given the responsibility of taming a terrifying beast,Nunu forged a friendship where others would have forged chains.Now Nunu and his burly pal Willump are an inseparable pair who combine youthful exuberance and brute strength with the mythical powers of the Yeti to overcome obstacles insurmountable to any ordinary duo.
Nunu
had only the vaguest memories of his parents or the time before he was part of the reclusive Frostguard tribe.Never welcome among his caretakers,Nunu's wanderlust and compassion often put him at odds with the tribe's elders and the boy frequently dreamt of places far beyond the shadow of the Frostguard citadel.Sometimes he would do more than just dream,much to the frustration of his minders.This was never more apparent than when Nunu was apprenticed to the tribe's beastmaster and charged with the care of the creatures under his yoke.
The
Frostguard held a menagerie of the Freljord's wildlife at their beck and call,but unique among their collection was the Yeti: an uncommon creature with mystical qualities and raw physical strength.The beastmaster taught Nunu that it was only a lean diet of plants and regular whippings that kept the vicious beast tame,but the more time Nunu spent caring for the creature,the more he learned that the Yeti was no feral monster.
As
he saw his new friend Willump growing weaker and sicker,Nunu began to sneak the Yeti scraps of meat,hoping to restore his health.Day by day,Willump grew stronger and not the slightest bit savage contrary to the beastmaster's claims.Nunu had hopes of convincing him that the Yeti posed no danger,but it wasn't meant to be.The next time Nunu came to deliver Willump a meal,he found the Yeti's cage shattered,with only a crude drawing inside signaling the Yeti's farewell.Without hesitation,Nunu rushed into the wilderness in search of his friend.
When
Nunu finally caught up to Willump,he found the Yeti cornered by the beastmaster alongside a group of Frostguard warriors.Afraid that the men would hurt his friend,Nunu threw himself between the Yeti and the beastmaster�s lash,but the brutal man would not stay his hand.As the furious beastmaster raised his whip once more,the Yeti swelled up with uncharacteristic fury.Even after so much mistreatment,it wasn't concern for himself but for the boy who'd shown him kindness that finally pushed Willump too far.The Yeti raged and left the man bloodied in the snow.
Terrified
by Willump's fury,the remaining Frostguard warriors fled.Nunu realized there was no going back.He yelled at Willump to run before the men returned to kill him,but the Yeti refused to leave the young boy.Faced with the choice of abandoning his sole friend or living his own life of captivity with the Frostguard,Nunu chose the only path that made sense.Leaping onto the back of the mighty Yeti,Nunu joined Willump in his great escape.The pair took their first steps into the wide world from which they had been kept for so long.

Willump and I have a whole world to explore.Don't get in our way!

UdyrUdyr
Udyr

Udyr is more than a man; he is a vessel for the untamed power of four primal animal spirits.When tapping into the spirits' bestial natures,Udyr can harness their unique strengths: the tiger grants him speed and ferocity,the turtle resilience,the bear might,and the phoenix its eternal flame.With their combined power,Udyr can turn back all those who would attempt to harm the natural order.
In
the Freljord,there is a unique caste that lives outside the society of those savage lands.They are the custodians of the natural world: the Spirit Walkers.Once in a generation,a child is born under a blood red moon,a child that is said to live between two worlds: that of spirit and that of man.This child is brought to the Spirit Walker to continue the shamanic line.Udyr was such a child,and knew the howl of the tundra wolves even before he learned the language of his ancestors.Through the Spirit Walker,Udyr would one day learn the meaning of the spirits' calls and tend to the balance of nature.The Spirit Walker often told Udyr he would be tested more than those who had come before him,for the spirits of the Freljord were growing ever more restless,though the reason remained clouded.
The
answer arrived in the dead of winter,as Udyr and the Spirit Walker were descended upon by a fearsome figure known only through frightened whispers: the Ice Witch.Knowing the boy would fall easy prey to her vile magic,the Spirit Walker shielded the child from her assault at the cost of his own life.A pointless sacrifice,or so the Ice Witch thought as she closed upon her next helpless victim.Wracked by grief,Udyr howled with fury,and he felt the Freljord itself howl with him.In that moment,the child embraced the spirits' primal nature and became a beast himself.Coursing with their untamed power Udyr's angry roar shook the mountaintops and brought down a torrential avalanche.When Udyr finally clawed out of the frost,the Ice Witch was nowhere to be found.
For
years,the tribes of the north learned to avoid the wildman and his domain.Then one day,Udyr caught the scent of a fearless trespasser.Determined to chase the intruder from his territory,he attacked the stranger only to be deflected with ease.The wildman launched himself at the man again and again,but each time he was effortlessly cast aside.Exhausted and defeated,Udyr felt his animosity ebb and croaked a clumsy ''who'' to the stranger.Lee Sin had come seeking the Spirit Walker�s guidance and instead found a man who had also lost his way.The blind monk promised he would right Udyr's path and guided him to a monastery,said to be protected by four eternal spirits of great power and wisdom.There,Udyr would find harmony.
Harnessing
the discipline of the monks,Udyr communed with the spirits of the monastery's temple and learned to truly embrace his life as the next Spirit Walker.He also understood the true threat that the Ice Witch posed to the Freljord for the first time: she was the herald of a greater darkness that would soon envelop the land.Armed with the potent spirits of the temple,Uydr returned to the place of his birth,seeking to end the blight of the Ice Witch and free the Freljord from her corruption.

Through me,nature's will is done.

Lee
Sin brought Udyr to a land that was a stark contrast to his birthplace.Survival was not the only law that governed the lives of Ionians or creatures of the land.For the first time,Udyr felt at peace with the spirits surrounding him and found comfort in human companionship.His time among the monks taught him to temper his instincts,while his meditations with the ancient temple spirits taught him wisdom.Through them both,Udyr learned to truly embrace his life as the next Spirit Walker.
Udyr
owed much to the Ionians.It was a debt he was never asked to honor,but one he would ultimately repay many times over.When the armies of Noxus invaded,Udyr did not stand idle as the brutal soldiers oppressed the peaceful Ionians - he had not forgotten how to bare his teeth.Udyr leapt at their armies with all the ferocity of a cornered beast and gave the invaders good reason to fear the wilderness.From the trees,his claws tore the Noxians down in scores; on the river banks,he threw them back like a flood,and in the fields,he consumed them with searing wildfire.Only when the Noxians fled with their tails between their legs did Udyr quell his rage.
Peace
returned to Ionia,but still Udyr felt something stirring him from his rest.The spirits of the Freljord called out to him,warning of an unnatural evil emerging from the ice.Udyr understood the true threat that the Ice Witch posed to his homeland: she was the herald of a greater darkness that would soon envelop the land.Armed with the potent spirits of the temple,Udyr returned to the Freljord,seeking to defend the natural world from all who would threaten its balance.

Through us,nature's will is done.
Udyr
