Born near the battlefields of the eternal war between his homeland Demacia and its eternal enemy Noxus, Ackin was born into battle. Since his hometown was conquered by Noxus while he was young, his town was inspected by Noxian higher-ups. Unwilling for him to risk battle at age 6 only, Ackin's parents migrated away in protestation. Hiding their sons and daughters was unfortunately the best they could do, as they were found and murdered near the Demacian border. Ackin protected his younger brother Ingomar and the rest of the group of children from everything that could happen to them on their way to Demacia, where they were found and taken in an orphanage. Most of these orphans were so full with thoughts of revenge that most of them talked on about becoming Demacian soldiers as soon as possible. Upon hearing rumors of a Demacian high-rank commander, Ingomar protested against being forcibly recruited like that. This resulted in a dispute after which Ingomar disappeared into the wilds. Ackin went on, spending his rookie years lamenting the loss of his reckless younger brother. However, he would lead all the orphans he had known since his tenderest youth to revenge, and that feeling eventually calmed his restless soul. Upon hearing that an attack was planned on his hometown, Ackin did everything to have his squadron lead this battle and managed to persuade his commander to leave the lead to him: it was his hometown, the stuff of his nightmares, and yet he knew that because he had spent so many years remembering the place, he knew it without having been there for a dozen years. Ackin's little group did strike back at Noxus with incredible success, painting the soil of their birth town red under the blood of those who had desecrated it for so long. He felt surprisingly empty after this battle... or rather, surprisingly light: the burdens of his youth had been lifted off. Though, Demacians are in danger as long as Noxus exists. And Ackin now stands ready to fight any who attempt to force his fate on any Demacian kid, fighting Noxus with unwavering determination.
