"Solitude can be lonelier than death." - AmumuSquare Amumu

A lonely and melancholy soul from ancient Shurima, Amumu roams the world in search of a friend. Curse of the Sad Mummy Cursed by an ancient spell, he is doomed to remain alone forever, as his Cursed Touch touch is death and his affection ruin. Those who claim to have seen him describe Amumu as a living cadaver, small in stature and covered in Bandage Toss bandages the color of lichen. Amumu has inspired myths, folklore, and legends told and retold for generations - such that it is impossible to separate truth from fiction.

"Things are bad when AmumuSquare Amumu is crying, but they're much worse when he's angry." - EzrealSquare Ezreal

Perhaps one of the oddest champions in the League of Legends is the Yordle known as Amumu. His life before joining the League remains unknown... especially to Amumu. All he remembers is that he woke up alone inside a pyramid within the Shurima Desert. He was entwined in mummy wrappings and he could not feel his heart beat. Furthermore, he felt a deep sadness that he could not entirely explain.

He knew he missed his parents, though he could not remember who they were. Dropping to his knees, Amumu Despair wept into his bandages. No matter what he did, it seemed he could never stop his tears or sadness. Eventually he stood up, determined to wander the world to discover his past. Amumu traveled all across southern Valoran - a feat that is not easily dismissed.

While Amumu still hasn't learned much about his past, he has learned a great deal about who he has become. He is most assuredly undead, though he harbors none of the evil characteristics typical of undead beings. He also seems to keep trouble at arm's length; Amumu was able to traverse all of Southern Valoran without so much as a single bad thing happening to him. He was just sad, and the people and beings he encountered eventually shared his sadness.

Ultimately, he made his way north across the Great Barrier to the Institute of War, the home of the League. Amumu's story was compelling to the summoners he met there, and they invited him to take part in a League Judgment. His success within the League as a champion has given Amumu something he desired: a home. With his present (un)life secured, he now hopes the friends he has made will help him discover his past.
