The first legend about Aatrox dates back to the beginning of recorded history. It tells about the war between two powerful civilizations from which we heard a name: Protectorate and Magelords. The war is in favor of the Magi: they managed to win a landslide victory and many seemed nothing could save the Protectorate from destruction. On the day of the decisive battle of the Protectorate army was exhausted; only a handful of poorly armed soldiers ready to confront the army of the Magi. They are resigned to the inevitability of defeat.
And in that moment, when he extinguished the last hope in the Protectorate ranks suddenly appeared Aatrox. He gave the soldiers orders to fight to the last, and then single-handedly rushed the army of the Magi. His presence gives strength desperate fighters. They were seized with awe when the unknown hero, if merged into a single whole with his blade crashed into the orders of the enemies. The thirst for combat soldiers swept, and they rushed after Aatrox. Each of them fiercely fought for ten long until the impossible happened: Protectorate snatched victory ruthless enemy.
After that battle Aatrox disappeared, but the fighting spirit, newfound army of the Protectorate remained. For one incredible victory was followed by others, and eventually the war ended, and the army returned home. Compatriots glorified heroes for their salvation, but since then the soul of every soldier a piece of darkness settled. Something in them irrevocably changed. Over time, the memories of battle faded, and they were replaced by a grim awareness of guilt. Things that they previously considered heroic, now seemed cruel atrocities. Crimes they have committed with my own hands.
Such legends exist in the mythology of many cultures. According to them, the presence of Aatrox changed the course of some of the most important wars in human history. Although these stories Aatrox extolled as the savior, perhaps his true heritage should be considered as a world full of war and strife.
