A starless night, the moon hidden behind thick clouds. Erik the Skullsplitter, one of the more renowned Berserkers from Lokfar, made a hellish journey to the End of the World, just barely covered against the thick snow and chilling wind. End of the World, the name given by the Berserkers to the peak of a tall mountain in Freljord close to the sea, was the location of a dark omen predicted by the fortune-reader in Erik's home. An omen said to change the face of Lokfar, if not the whole land of Valoran itself. Erik did not hesitate. Soon, he reached the peak, hearing the sea clashing against the serrated cliffs. But the Skullsplitter had no time to relax and enjoy the view, for he had a mission to fulfill. The hands grasped both his axes tightly, drawing. He let out a deep, furious roar before taunting his surroundings, claiming that there is nothing in this world able to defeat him and any challenger would be welcome to cross the blades with him.
Soon, the sinister sound of metal against scales filled the air. A dark demon has appeared from the snow, just barely being able to slice Erik's chest. The battle began, the blades reflecting the glowing crimson eyes of the shadowy demon coated in dark-blue scales. A voice echoed inside of the Skillsplitter's head, gloating about finally claiming the body of a warrior. But the voice got ignored, for Erik was controlled by nothing but rage and bloodlust. Soon, he saw an opening, striking with both of his axes. The demon roared painfully. But Erik couldn't move the axes anymore. They're stuck in the body of the demon and before Erik realized what happened, he already got dragged to the edge of the mountain. Now both of them were falling down, meeting their inevitable death. Erik didn't feared his fate, for the omen has at least been prevented and he would die like a true warrior. Both landed in the sea.
"You cannot defeat an Iceborn, foolish mortal..."
A few days later, a deformed Erik emerged from the cold waters. The demon has fused with him, twisted his mind, made him a slave. Now, the reborn Erik will fight in the League, secretly preparing the land for the return of the Frozen Watchers with the power of the Black Flames, a manifestation of a Berserkers rage that is so cold that it burns.

First, I'm not that good with champion stats or ability range. I would be thankful for suggestions.
Second, please inform me if you find big mistakes in my wording. English is not my first language, but I'm trying my best.
As you may have guessed, Erik is kind of like an antithesis to Olaf. While I think he's unique enough, he shares some traits with Olaf, like the axe-throwing and spending health to deal true damage (although having very different results).
If you want, I would create an event when Olaf meets Erik on the Summoner's Rift, similar to Rengar/Kha'Zix and the three Freljord leaders.
