"I've brought my books! Hope that's alright."

This article has recently been converted to the new character-focused layout but it needs a lore enthusiast to help fill-out the sections. In addition, 'Relations trivia' and 'Lore trivia' have been moved here but need restructuring into article content - lore is no longer trivia.

If you're eagar to help but would like to reference a completed character article: Aurelion Sol, Soraka, Jinx and Viego are excellent.

Relations

  • Garen Garen was Taric's lifelong friend. His nobility status allowed him to keep Taric safe from being accused of high treason and executed.
    • But even Garen (who still believed in Taric but deep down thought he was wasting his talents by fooling around) turned on Taric after Voidborn killed the Shield of Valoran's men, resulting in his banishment and sentence to the Crown of Stone by the Might of Demacia himself.
  • Based on Sona's Sona's in-game voice lines, she has met Taric before his exile.
  • Taric appreciates the beauty in all things (music music, life life). His role as Aspect of the Protector, and especially past experiences, have made The Void The Void his enemy.

The Mountain

By Graham McNeill

Mount Targon is the mightiest peak in Runeterra, a towering mountain of sun-baked rock amid a range of summits unmatched in scale anywhere else in the world. Located far from civilization, Mount Targon is utterly remote and all but impossible to reach save by the most determined seeker.

Trivia

  • Aurelion Sol Aurelion Sol hinted at Taric being a Targonian Targonian Aspect before he was relaunched as such: "You You're an Aspect? Let me guess: tackiness."
    • The Protector is the source of Taric's power, and produces his gems.[1]
  • Taric is not of Demacian Demacian nobility, but his family has a long military history of serving the crown.
    • Aside from Taric, the rest of his family line (at least to Garen Garen) still swears allegiance to king and country.
