A lonely legend as old as the first piers sunk in Bilgewater Crest icon Bilgewater, the armored goliath known as Nautilus Nautilus roams the dark waters off the coast of the Blue Flame Isles. Driven by a forgotten betrayal, he strikes without warning, swinging his enormous anchor to save the wretched, and drag the greedy to their doom. It is said he comes for those who forget to pay the "Bilgewater tithe", pulling them down beneath the waves with him—an iron-clad reminder that none can escape the depths.

First light after the Harrowing

By Pabro

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.

Trivia[]

  • Nautilus' backstory might be referencing The Pirates of Dark Water.
  • Despite similarities to Nautilus's lore, Riot decided to keep Pyke's Pyke's lore the same because they felt there was enough room for two deep sea revenants that desired revenge.[1]

Character blurb
Updated to current version.
Enemy Missing pingMISSINGEnemy Missing ping Original version.
All know the tales; all pay the Bilgewater tithe. Since time immemorial, Nautilus has roamed the dark waters off the coast of the Blue Flame Isles, dragging impious sailors to their doom. The armored goliath strikes without warning, his inexorable footfalls churning the waters, before swinging his enormous anchor upward to shatter mast and keel alike. He then pulls the flotsam beneath the waves to appease the wrath of the Bearded Lady.
