There is no greater symbol of Noxian might than Darius, the nation's most feared
and battle-hardened warrior. Orphaned at a young age, Darius had to fight to keep
himself and his younger brother alive. By the time he joined the military, he had
already developed the strength and discipline of a veteran soldier. The first true
test of Darius's resolve occurred in a crucial battle against Demacia, where the
Noxian forces were exhausted and outnumbered. Darius's captain called for his
troops to retreat, but Darius refused to accept such an act of cowardice. Breaking
formation, Darius strode towards the captain and decapitated him with one sweep of
his gigantic axe. Both terrified and inspired, the soldiers followed Darius into
battle and fought with incredible strength and fervor. After a long and grueling
battle, they ultimately emerged victorious.
 
Seizing momentum from this victory, Darius led his now fiercely loyal troops in a
devastating campaign against Demacia. After proving his power on the battlefield,
Darius turned his gaze homeward. He saw a Noxus riddled with weakness, where
greedy, complacent nobles drained the nation's strength. Seeking to restore his
country to greatness, Darius took it upon himself to reshape the Noxian leadership.
He identified weak figureheads and violently removed them from their positions of
power. Many in Noxus saw Darius's cull as an attempt to seize power, but he had a
different plan for the throne. He had been watching the rise of Jericho Swain with
keen interest. In Swain, Darius saw a leader with the mind and determination to
bring Noxus to glory. Now allied with the Master Tactician, Darius works to unite
the nation behind his vision of true Noxian strength.
 
"A united Noxus could control the world - and would deserve to." - Darius
