Yao and Hao known each other from beggining of their lifes, since they were brothers. They befriended pretty quickly, nothing could break their friendship, they've never played with other children, never gone out with someone, never split up and they were always guarding themselves. Once they grown up, they ventured to Ionia to learn how to use spiritual magic to help during war between Noxus and Ionia and their knowledge about using real weapons was very little and of course, it's hard for Yordles to hold big swords and large bows. Once they started study they did pretty well, and learned basic techniques early enough. One accurst night, Noxian guerrilla squad attacked the temple, Yao and Hao started to fight to keep temple and it's inhabitants safe. They protected temple as long as they could, to the last breath and last drop of blood. Unfortunately one of the guerrillas attacked from back and dealt a death blow to Hao. It just released Yao's anger which made out of him an unstoppable killing machine. He roughly murdered all the soldiers and came to Hao, he knew that he is dead but he couldn't accept this so he moved his spirit into his body. It was hard for him to do but he did it, Yao and Hao shared the same body and could control it. Unfortunately Noxian's attack had bigger impact than they expected, it seemed so that there were more of squads and some of them attacked the city from the other side, that's were Hao's assassin came from. And so, Yao ventures over the world to find a way, to bring back his Brother's his body. Yao thought that since League of Legends is kind of tournament, prize may be enough to complete his mission.

"I can do anything to bring back my Brother his body, I could kill someone, I could burn down city, destroy whole Valoran, I just want to see him again..."
