Soimon, the Red Persecutor is a custom champion in the SMNKcustom champion series. He uses a bow made of ruby to shoot red bolts at his opponents, which would make him a "magic-looking" marksman kinda like Ezreal, except Soimon doesn't remotely play like a mage.
Passive: When he uses a basic attack on an enemy champion, Soimon's attack speed increases by 15% / 25% / 35%. This can stack up to 3 times, but resets to one if he attacks a different enemy champion. Attacking a non-champion enemy cancels Crimson Storm.
Soimon is a simple marksman, and needs a simple passive. This should also give him an identity kinda opposite to Miss Fortune, as in he gains better attack speed if he constantly piles on the same champion.
COST: 40 Mana
Recharge time:8 / 7.5 / 7 / 6.5 / 6
Passive: Soimon periodically stores charges of this skill, up to 3 at a time.
Active: Soimon's next basic attack fires a stone shard through his bow, dealing extra physical damage and reducing the armor of the target.
Red Lightning is Soimon's skill that shows what Soimon truly is: a pure damage marksman. A stocked autoattack reset that shreds armor was the core ability for him, enhancing the strength of his right-clicking. Before you ask, yes, it has no cooldown. Fire three in a row at your leisure, or show how good you are by using it for 3 free auto-attack resets.
COST: 70 Mana
Active: Soimon fires upwards, firing a ruby that shatters and rains shards in a 150-unit radius, dealing magic damage and marking champions for 3 seconds.
Magic damage: 50 / 70 / 90 / 110 / 130 (+ 40% AP)
Soimon's basic attacks consume all marks to deal extra magic damage depending on the number of marks consumed and slow the target for 1 second.
Magic damage: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 (+ 10% AP) per mark
Soimon needs some poke, and here you have it. Rubyshard Shot marks targets, and as to not be counter-intuitive, attacking consumes all marks, making it still in Soimon's best interest to hit as many targets as possible.
COST: 80 Mana
COOLDOWN: 18 / 17 / 16 / 15 / 14
Active: Soimon dashes in target direction after firing an explosive bullet at a nearby enemy unit (prioritizing champions), dealing magic damage in a 150-unit area around the target.
Ah, Vortex Shot. This ability was kinda modeled after Arcane Shift, as can be seen. After all, all marksmen kite. I don't really like this ability per se, as the shot's fired before dashing which would encourage running away.
COST: 100 Mana
Active: Soimon plants himself on the ground. All of his basic abilities become Crimson Raindrop until he expended all of them, re-casts Red Hail to cancel the ability, or after 12 seconds.
Canceling Red Hail with remaining Crimson Raindrops refunds 10 seconds of its cooldown for each Crimson Raindrop that wasn't fired.
RANGE: 2500 / 3500 / 4500
Active: Soimon fires a piercing bullet in a line, dealing physical damage to all enemies hit. The bullet doesn't go through champions, and deals quadrupled damage to minions.
Red Hail basically is just there to accentuate Soimon's marksman nature. He plants himself in place for up to 12 seconds and can fire three uber-ranged skillshots. I put the very definition of a marksman, cranked it up a notch, and ended up with this ability.
Soimon is born in a clan dedicated to hunting mages since ancient times. His family prided itself on having successfully uprooted "the Black Rose", which was a source of corruption in Noxus. Soimon grew like his family had grown, complacent in the value of his family, sleeping on achievements that were history. The family's prided anti-magic had become a secret arcane open to few, not even Soimon, who trained in standard magic arts.
He rapidly found a vocation when he was sent on exploration missions and found a huge red crystal right before his eyes. Soimon spent day in and day out trying to make himself a magic bow out of it, and in three weeks of work, Soimon had crafted his very own weapon of bewitching beauty and power. Soimon opened shop as a magic weaponsmith, and enjoyed years of success making weapons of death for Noxus.
One day however, Soimon turned down a client's request simply because his client was wearing a black rose symbol, when threatened with force, Soimon fired at the would-be client and knocked them to the other side of the street, burned by a rafale of magical bolts. Soimon turned back to his clan saying their legend was not entirely right and the Black Rose still existed. When he didn't find ears willing to listen to him, one person approached him: Takop of the Red Round. Soimon accepted to join his ranks with the aim to make the real aim of his family true.
By the end of the month, Soimon was surprise-attacked by his own son and left gravely wounded. Sure that his family was being controlled by the Black Rose all along, he turned away from his family to find the Red Round and complete his job: hunting down the Black Rose and burning it down to the ground.
