A highly esteemed veteran of the Noxian army and a skilled addition to the Crimson Guard, Ekbatel represents some of the finest shows of power of the Noxian city-state's might. Ekbatel collaborated with Swain to take power from Boram Darkwill in Noxia. Ekbatel, along with Talon, ambushed the Grand General near Kalamanda, killing him and his escorts and sparking tensions between Noxus and Demacia. Ekbatel joined the League to spy on with other Crimson Guard members such as Talon and Katerina. It is believed that Ekbatel is directly involved with the disappearance of General Du Couteau.
