  • After an extended demonstration period, the League of Legends Wiki is moving forward with its planned restructuring of Character pages.
  • Character pages will now be structured more similarly to the character pages of other Fandoms and will provide editor-written overviews of important stories and relationships.
  • A champion's Biography will now be found on a dedicated article - as with other story articles.
  • Lore and Relations trivia has been moved here from Hecarim/Trivia, and should only be found here henceforth.
  • The League of Legends Wiki is stepping into new territory with these truly character-focused articles - so any and all contributions would be appreciated!

Hecarim Hecarim is a spectral fusion of man and beast, cursed to ride down the souls of the living for all eternity. When the Blessed Isles Crest icon.png Blessed Isles fell into shadow, this proud knight was undone by the destructive energies of the Ruination, along with all his cavalry and their mounts. Now, whenever the Black Mist reaches out across Runeterra, he leads their devastating charge, reveling in the slaughter and crushing foes beneath his armored hooves.

No One Lives

By Graham McNeill

Icy waves crashed on the bleak shore, red with the blood of the men Hecarim had already butchered. The mortals he had yet to kill were retreating over the beach in terror. Black rain doused them and stormclouds boiled in from the mourning heart of the island. He heard them shouting to one another. The words were a guttural battle-cant he did not recognize, but the meaning was clear; they actually thought they might live to reach their ship. True, they had some skill. They moved as one, wooden shields interlocked. But they were mortal and Hecarim savored the meat-stink of their fear.

First light after the Harrowing

Though the Black Mist fades and the souls it claimed will soon forget their past, the threat of the fell tide will not be forgotten. Worse than all previous years, those who lived are left to wonder where it will return, and whether anyone will survive when it does.
