Read Biography


Draven grew up as an orphan on the streets of Basilich until his hometown was conquered by Noxus. He and his brother Darius Darius joined the Noxian army, but Draven grew steadily more bored with the drudgery of soldier life. Instead, he was drawn to the excitement of the Reckoners' gladiator arena. After playing an instrumental role in Swain Swain's coup over Boram Darkwill Boram Darkwill, Draven was appointed the Glorious Executioner, punishing the enemies of Noxus with spectacular deaths.


Draven is a tall, muscular man with fair skin and dark brown or black hair. He is variously portrayed with either brown, gray, or green eyes. His body and face are decorated with reddish tattoos, a series of thick, angular lines. His iconic facial hair is a long, thin mustache that extends past his jawline.

He typically wears light leather armor, accented with metal spikes and white fur. His weapons of choice are a pair of large, spinning axes meant for throwing.


With a knack for spectacle and showmanship, Draven is a bombastic, blustering personality and a famous crowd-pleaser during his gladiatorial "performances." He is brash and impulsive, often acting purely on instinct. In addition, he is almost cartoonishly arrogant, loving himself and the sound of his own name with extreme passion. As such, he often refers to himself in the third person. He is also an enthusiastic killer, executing his opponents in the ring with brutal thrill.


  • Master Axeman: Draven dominates the arena with his signature spinning throwing axes.
  • Charisma: Draven is a natural showman who provokes uproarious reactions from the crowd.

The Whispering Doodad

By Graham McNeill

“Here, doodad,” she whispers to the grass. “Pretty please, with sprinkles on top! I'll let you take us somewhere you want to go next.” The doodad—or whatever it's really called—doesn't respond, but I sense it rolling away from Lulu. Well, not really rolling, as such, more making itself be where she isn't.
