Development

Lore

  • Braum's legendary status through the (at least over five) generations as well as the lack of significant aging (if the former is accurate) give way to the theory of him being an Iceborn.
    • The other theory is that he is not a flesh-and-blood individual. Instead, he is the embodiment of the less cruel side of the Freljord, whose 'existence' is tied to the people's fascination with him and his feats.

  • "The darker the night, the brighter the stars" is an extract from Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
  • "Mother always said: 'Float like iceberg, sting like thrown iceberg!'" references Muhammad Ali's catchphrase "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."
