|(Innate): When an enemy that Merlo is fighting with has more attack damage, armor, magic resist, or ability power than him, Merlo gains 40% of the difference until he's out of combat.

If an allied minion is targeted, Merlo heals it and puts the minion in his beard and the cooldown of this spell is reduced by 5 seconds. Merlo can only put minions in his beard up to a cap.

The minions will attack the target. The magic damage dealt by Merlo is increased by 15% for every minion released from his beard.

Lore: Merlo was once a magician-in-training in a regular school of sorcery in the Voodoo Lands. He proved to be a prodigy in dueling, but could not get along very well with his fellow magicians-in-training. They would often bully him and mock him. Therefore, from his very youth, he disliked other magicians and people in general. He taught himself to survive on his own using his magic, and in his loneliness, he learnt to control to his bidding all sorts of creatures. His house had become an animate world where birds and whales did all the work for him. Eventually, he dared the ones that made his life miserable for a duel. They accepted, thinking they outnumbered him. However, before they could even reach him, he released the animals he controlled and brutally maimed his foes. But it was not enough. Once his beard was full-grown, he left for the lands beyond the Great Barrier and he joined the League of Legends, set to unleash his wrath on anyone who dares to cross his path again.
