Centus, The Sunfire Bowman

Telaruhn April 26, 2012 User blog:Telaruhn

Time for a ranged carry! I kind of wanted to go for an all-out attacker. He uses a lot of autoattack-enhancers and on-hit effects. What he lacks in durability and mobility he makes up for in pure damage output. Let me know what you think :)

Recommended Build


Centus spent many years venturing the world, wielding a bow and harboring no fear for his actions. He slayed many a malevolent creatures and was a wise negotiator, mediating many provincial conflicts. He become widely known, even in Valoran, for his wisdom and courage. After many years of adventure, he eventually traveled to Valoran, and decided to reside in Demacia; then, he married, and had multiple children, living the peaceful life.

One day, a meteor came from the sky in broad daylight, landing in an open field near Demacia. Centus, well studied in astronomy, was the first to arrive at the crash site, bow in hand. What he found in the center of the crater was a glorious vermillion stone emanating with the power of the sun. Upon touching the stone, it burst, and Centus began transform. His hair, once black and swarthy, became a flowing mane of white. His eyes glew with an orange hue, and his skin, once pale, became dark as night; horns emerged from his head like a goat. His bow, on the ground next to him, burned with immolation. He grabbed it, holding it up in the air like a newly won trophy. From then on, he became known as the Sunfire Bowman. He decided to join the League simply to try out his new powers safely. Who knows, they could be more dangerous than he thinks...

"When the sun rises, it brings hope upon the earth. I wake every morning just to watch it." - Centus
