Just released the Legendary costume – The Avatar Infantry Disorder was not long, then Jax at the same time Riot Games released a new profile. This is one of the familiar moves of the father League of Legends in order to perfect the worldview of the “Alliance Universe”.
In the newly updated storyline, Jax has the real name Saijax Cail-Rynx Icath’un – Originally from Icathia, and is one of the generals who are in opposition to the ancient Shurima Empire, alongside Taliyah (slave class) rules of Shurima).
The new plot of Jax also reveals a part of Icathia’s history, especially the reason why this land was invaded by the Void. It is true that nothing happened without its cause, the growth of the Void in Runeterra was greatly contributed by a holy “team squeeze” by the ancient Icathian elders.
Hailed for hundreds of years of oppression from the Shurima Empire, the Icathians later discovered a new source of power, albeit glimmering but its destructive potential caught their wizards. Many of them believed that this was the godsend power to defeat the Shurima invaders – the Empire possessed powerful Sublimation warriors that even the Icariian Kohari heroes could not defeat. .
Only Jax could see through the danger coming from the Void. He understood that using a source of power that he could not control would bring enormous risks. However, like many other Icathian children, Jax still fought in the power of the Void, with the goal of driving the Shurima from their homeland.
In the new storyline, Jax’s strength is still a mystery, but with his inherent appearance, we can believe that he was invaded by the Void, but that is the story after Icathia’s destruction. In the past, when Jax was still one of the pioneers of the Kohari force, Jax was almost an unrivaled warrior on the battlefield.
The magicians of Icathia intend to borrow the power of the Void to oppose Shurima, and inadvertently create conditions for them to swallow Icathia and sow danger to the whole of Runeterra.
He even killed an Ascended being of Shurima – something that no human could do. It was also enough to show the strength and quality of the martial arts genius of the Weapon Master.
And there is another notable detail, which is the lantern that Jax used to “nerf” himself in the old story (Jax spit out a street lamp pole as a weapon, just because if he used it real weapons are no longer rivals) have been changed backgrounds. No longer a makeshift weapon, the lamp now has a much more mysterious and grandiose background – A divine scepter that once appeared in Saabera, which is lit “the last light of Icathia “.
The indestructible flame of the staff in Jax’s hand is an eternal elemental fire capable of burning Void energy. Jax both used his staff as a weapon to knock the head of the opponent, and was also tasked with protecting its flames in preparation for the final battle against the Void.
The weakness of the staff is that the further away they are from Icathia, the weaker the flame will become. This didn’t really matter to Jax’s power, but as Icathia’s last protector of light, Jax forced himself (though he volunteered) not to leave his homeland, although he himself was a guests.
It can be seen that, with the newly updated storyline, Jax is no longer a mysterious creature known only for martial arts talent. Through the short story, this general was portrayed as a divine entity with the power to defeat both the Void creatures or the Ascension warrior. A champion with cool gameplay and storyline, perhaps an inspiration for Riot to continue creating more attractive outfits?
