In most lore, the phoenix is a creature of fire that rises from its own ashes. What few know, however, is that phoenixes are elemental beings, formed by the eternal essences of their native world. I was conceived on a world such as this - a being of the coldest winter, a creature of pure elemental ice. On my world, I was the protector of the frozen wastes and all those with the spirit to endure in such unforgiving places. I was consulted as a creature of great wisdom, one who could not die and who had seen the world renewed several times. Somehow, I knew that the day would come when I would be plucked from my home and pulled across worlds, and when that day came, I received the call with grace. Seeing the imbalance and injustice on Runeterra, a world lacking elemental protectors, I took my place at the League of Legends.
Since my arrival, I have chosen to live among the highest peaks of the Northern Ironspike Mountains, adjacent to the frozen wastes of Freljord. I have openly claimed this territory as my own protectorate. Surprisingly, I have struck up a friendship with the yeti of this region - a friendship that grows deeper and deeper with each passing moon. I have formed a close bond with two League champions: Nunu (and Willump) and the nomad princess Ashe. In a move that caught the League by surprise, I recently entreated the summoners of the Institute of War to research a means in bringing across others of my elemental fellows. As a champion, I am revered with a sense of awe by most, but am not the most popular as most consider me unapproachable.
Some say the world will end in fire, some in ice. I await the inevitable latter.
