Theophilus Lightshield was born only a few years after his brother, the Crown Prince, Jarvan IV.
At very young age he showed high magical talents and soon started studying magical practices. Even though he spent most of his youth studying to become a powerful mage at the Institute of War and fight for Demacia, he also learned about the gruesomeness in this world, as he grew up in a time full of war and death. He developed a strong dislike against humanity and its evilness.
After he graduated from the College of Magic, surpassing even the likes of Luxanna Crownguard, and becoming a powerful archmage, one that was highly praised in not only in Demacia, Theophilus made it his task to cleanse this world from any evil. He thought that he must have been chosen to do so, otherwise he would not have been this supremely powerful.
First he thought that he must only bring Demacia victory, but he soon realised that this wasn't true. Even in Demacia evil was found, even in Demacia there were murders and robberies. He did not tolerate such things, especially in his beloved land Demacia.
So he secretly started using his power to eliminate any evil person he would hear about.
Only few weeks after his first deed, rumors started spreading that there was someone who punished these criminals. As the rumors spread through Demacia, some people feared this person, but some people also adored him and worshipped him.
Theophilus was proud of these people. He was glad that there was still good in this world.
These numbers started growing, the criminal activities in Demacia diminished to nearly a minimum.
Thinking that he saved Demacia of evil, he joined the League of Legends to continue his destiny.
