Lore & Story

Warwick's full length bio and story are available on his UNIVERSE PAGE:

Here's the heavily shortened in client bio for Warwick:
 "Warwick is a monster who hunts the gray alleys of 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. None who spill it can escape him."

As a teaser for the Warwick champion update, a new ENGINEERING THE NIGHTMARE story was also released featuring Singed experimenting on Warwick and his transformation.
