An unstoppable force of destruction, the axe-wielding Olaf Olaf wants nothing but to die in glorious combat. Hailing from the brutal Freljord Crest icon.png Freljordian peninsula of Lokfar, he once received a prophecy foretelling his peaceful passing—a coward's fate, and a great insult among his people. Seeking death, and fueled by rage, he rampaged across the land, slaughtering scores of great warriors and legendary beasts in search of any opponent who could stop him. Now a brutal enforcer for the Freljord Winters Claw.png Winter's Claw, he seeks his end in the great wars to come.

Background

Early Life

Olaf grew up in the Freljord Crest icon.png Freljord in the region of Lokfar, where battle and death was common and happened frequently. Olaf was a warrior and would often boast about the many battles he fought and won. However, his demeanor and lack of hesitation to share his many stories would anger and annoy some in his tribe.

A Warrior's Death

After boasting one night about one of his many battles, Olaf was confronted by an elder warrior who told him to prove his worth and see what his future held for him, how he would die, whether in battle or peacefully of old age. Olaf accepted and was angered when his fortune told of a long life and peaceful death. Determined to achieve a warrior's death, Olaf traveled to battle a revered frost serpent who had slain thousands. However, the battle ended with the serpent slain and Olaf alive.

Olaf tried to find a warrior's death against many creatures, but when he became enraged, nothing could hurt or stop him, and he found that he was able to defeat every single beast that he challenged. During his pursuits, he even tried to battle the ghost of a Krakenwyrm during a Harrowing at Bilgewater Crest icon.png Bilgewater. However, this endeavor only ended with the Krekenwyrm slain twice.

Resolving that no mere beast could beat him, Olaf decided to take on the Freljord Winters Claw.png Winter's Claw, the most fearsome tribe in the Freljord. He battled and defeated their most fearsome warriors before battling Sejuani Sejuani herself. Their battle shook glaciers with its intensity until they reached a deadlock. Sejuani stared into Olaf's soul with such intensity that his frenzy was quelled long enough for her to offer him a place in her tribe and the warrior's death he had always hoped for.

Sentinels of Light Crest icon.svg Sentinels of Light

During the period of Viego Viego's Ruination, after almost being killed fighting Vex Vex, Olaf joined the Sentinels of Light in order to defeat Viego. He guided the Sentinels through the Freljord and returned to his normal life after Viego had been defeated.

The Great Cauldron of Ornn Ornn

With low resources and spread out forces, the Winter's Claw are bracing for the coldest winter in many years. After gaining knowledge from a man who claimed to have drank from the Great Cauldron of Ornn, Sejuani resolved to invade the land of Volibear and steal the Cauldron from him. With newfound resolve, the Winter's Claw continue to trudge on, battling the Ursine on their way through.

Appearance

Olaf is an abnormally large fair-skinned man with toned muscles and a large ginger beard. He often wears a metal helmet with two large horns and various furs around his torso, wrists, and feet. He wields two axes tempered with True Ice that he uses constantly in battle.

Personality

Irritable and easily angered, Olaf lives for nothing but the heat and rage of battle. A competent fighter and fierce warrior, he is never scared to go into a fight and, in fact, enjoys it. More than anything, he is determined to obtain nothing less than a warrior's death fitting for as fierce a warrior as him.

Abilities

  • Iceborn: Olaf has a rare magical alteration from birth, giving him a strong resistance to the cold of the Freljord Crest icon.png Freljord and allowing him to be able to wield and manipulate both True Ice and Dark Ice. Olaf uses this power to wield his axes tempered with True Ice in battle.
  • Fighter: Olaf is a competent fighter, having felled beasts, ghosts, and entire armies by himself in his lifetime.
  • Rage: When threatened, Olaf is able to enter an adrenaline filled, rage-like state in which he gains a strong boost of strength and energy, along with a large resistance to pain. This ability may be magical in nature, although this has not been confirmed.

Relations

Sejuani Sejuani

Looking for his warrior's death, Olaf fought the Freljord Winters Claw.png Winter's Claw and defeated many of their warriors before fighting Sejuani. During the battle, Sejuani was able to convince him to join the Winter's Claw, and they now work together in order to accomplish Sejuani's goals of conquest and Olaf's goals of finally obtaining his warrior's death.

Volibear Volibear

Olaf along with the rest of the Freljord Winters Claw.png Winter's Claw are on a mission to steal the Great Cauldron of Ornn Ornn from Volibear and the Ursine in order to survive the oncoming winter, which is told to be the coldest winter in ages.

Shadow and Fortune

While looking for a warrior's death inBilgewater Crest icon.png Bilgewater, a Harrowing commenced, prompting Olaf to fight the ghost of a Krakenwyrm that he had previously defeated. After being thrown away by the Krakenwyrm, Olaf traveled with Lucian Lucian, Miss Fortune Miss Fortune, and their companions as they traveled towards the temple of Nagakabouros Nagakabouros, a temple headed by Illaoi Illaoi. While traveling, Olaf saw the undead Krakenwyrm and rushed to fight it again, abandoning the people he was traveling with.

Sentinels of Light Crest icon.svg Sentinels of Light

After almost being killed fighting Vex Vex, Olaf joined the Sentinels of Light (consisting of Akshan Akshan, Lucian Lucian, Senna Senna, and Vayne Vayne) along with Diana Diana, Graves Graves, Irelia Irelia, Pyke Pyke, Rengar Rengar, and Riven Riven in order to defeat Viego Viego, who had unleashed his Ruination onto the world. He guided the Sentinels through the Freljord and returned to his normal life after Viego had been defeated.
