Warwick Warwick is a monster who hunts the gray alleys of Zaun Crest icon Zaun. Transformed by agonizing experiments, his body is fused with an intricate system of chambers and pumps, machinery filling his veins with alchemical rage. Bursting out of the shadows, he preys upon those criminals who terrorize the city's depths. Warwick is drawn to blood, and driven mad by its scent scent. None who spill it can escape him.

Background[]

Early life[]

During his past life as a human, Warwick was a Zaunite Zaunite gangster who decided to retire from crime and live a better life as a good and honest man. He was eventually captured and experimented on by the mad scientist Singed Singed, who pumped him full of chemicals containing spliced monster DNA in an attempt to transform him into the "beast" he was deep down inside. Although Singed's experiments initially killed Warwick, they later resurrected him as a lycan with an insatiable thirst for blood.

Appearance[]

Warwick is a large werewolf-like creature, having a mix of human and canine anatomy. He is covered in bluish-gray fur, though his lower face and the front of his torso are paler. He has a canine muzzle full of massive fangs. His eyes are yellow-green by default but can turn a ferocious red in heated moments. His long, pointed ears have pink skin on the inside. He has a hulking, muscular upper body with slimmer legs and a fluffy tail. As a werewolf, he can move on two legs or get down on all fours. He also has numerous scars all over his body due to lacerations.

Warwick's body is augmented by asymmetrical chemtech machinery composed of brass-colored metal connected by tubes that house glowing green liquid. When Warwick is stressed, this liquid may turn yellow. Most notably, he has a clawed gauntlet on his right forearm and a large cylindrical chamber protruding from his back. This chamber features a single spike, almost giving it the appearance of a syringe. He also wears a pair of brown patchwork pants that are torn and faded.

Personality[]

While not much is known about Warwick's past life, it can be assumed that as a human, he was a selfless individual who cared about the well-being of others and sought to better himself as a person, with Singed Singed even describing him as a "good man". After Singed's experiments, however, little remained of the old Warwick or his memories, as he was replaced with a bloodthirsty, monstrous creature of pure wrath.

Warwick is in constant pain and wants desperately to remember his past life, but alas his chemical mutations prevent him from seeking this out. He is proud of his Zaunite origins and holds a special hatred for the Chem-Barons and the Zaunites who have abandoned the undercity for Piltover Crest icon Piltover. Warwick also sees Yordles as "alpha predators", growing distracted by them like a dog would be by a squirrel.

Even though Warwick has lost most of his memories, he sometimes gets flashes of his former life as a human. These last remaining memories prevent him from harming innocent people and cause him to only attack criminals, specifically those who have blood on their hands.

Abilities[]

  • Chemical Altered Physiology: Warwick was altered via experiments by Singed, changing him into a werewolf form with physical abilities far above that of a normal human.
    • Enhanced Strength: Warwick's strength far exceeds that of a normal human's, enabling him to easily dispatch the criminals he encounters in the depths of Zaun.
    • Enhanced Durability: Warwick's skin is extremely tough, which makes him exceptionally difficult to harm through conventional means. He also possesses inhuman levels of endurance and is able to keep functioning at full strength even when severely wounded.
    • Enhanced Speed: Warwick is extremely fast and can run at speeds that make him almost invisible to the naked eye. As a result of this, he can massacre entire groups of people in a split second.
    • Enhanced Senses: Warwick's senses are far more potent compared to those of a normal human. This applies to his sense of smell in particular, as he smell blood from at least a mile away.
    • Regeneration: Warwick is able to heal his injuries, some of which would normally be fatal for a human, at far greater speeds than normal humans can.

Relations[]

Warwick, the Blood Hunter Warwick, the Blood Hunter
  • Warwick and Singed Singed are long-time friends. Warwick has also likely supplied Singed with a myriad of test subjects over the years.
    • The potion Singed Singed concocted for Warwick that transformed him into a werewolf might be derived from his own Insanity Potion Insanity Potion.
  • In his post-potion thirst post-potion thirst, Warwick killed and flayed Urf Urf. He occasionally wears the Manatee's carcass as a sort of morbid trophy.
Warwick, the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun Warwick, the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun
  • The chemicals that are pumped into Warwick's body every time he smells blood blood along with Singed's Singed's experiments on him have taken a heavy toll on his psyche. He remembers very little of his former life as a human, sometimes recalling the cries of a little girl implied to be Jinx Jinx ("You were there", "Let me forget") and apparently knowing Vi Vi before she defected to Piltover Piltover. ("Zaun needed you!")
    • Warwick is potentially the man who taught Vi how to punch, as suggested by one of his quotes to her and a line in her biography.
    • Warwick could potentially be Vander the adoptive father of Vi and Jinx in Arcane League of Legends.

Engineering the Nightmare

By Phillip Vargas

Procured a cutthroat hiding among the populace and feigning civility. Only a disciplined eye could recognize the beast within, yearning for release. How could I refuse? For what is my work if not an attempt to reveal life's hidden truths through science? It required two doses to subdue him. Impressively resilient. A necessary quality to survive the grand catalyst of pain and provoke the transmutation. The metamorphosis will reshape the man into a chimeric predator, and all of Zaun will be its hunting grounds.
