In one of this year’s Riot Forge games, Wizard Slayers, an explorer reveals information about several demons. One of these demons is associated with the demon Nila. Another demon described in the study is “depressed hermit“, which also somewhat matches the description of the Ink Wizard.
Now the biggest clue about the relationship between the Ink Wizard and Fiddlesticks lies in this story.”ancient fearfrom the League of Legends universe page. It reveals that the young wizard once summoned something dangerous, such as a demon.
Long ago, in a tower by the sea, a foolish young wizard summoned something into the world that he could not control. What the boy imagined was something older than recorded history. Something darker than a starry and starless night. Something the world was desperately trying to forget, and in an instant, the wizard, the creature, and the tower itself were all lost in time.
