Lore: Raging amid the night in Ionia was an intense flame casued by a dark figure that was one with a flock of ravenous ravens, killed the parents of two young boys, along with other innocent people. One of the boys caught a glimpse of the attacker while he held his precious younger brother in his arms. He saw his concealed face, crimson eyes and a huge pair of wings that slowly transformed the figure into a frightening sight - the devil Swain himself. He led the other Noxians away from the village, leaving it a barren death land.....

Orphaned at a young age, Gladius had to defend himself and his brother from all harm until his brother was old enough to fend for himself. He thought him sacred martial arts, assassination techniques and balance in all things. He and his brother soon entered as students of Shen's father. All the teachings of the latter made his brother stronger and stronger. His balance between power and life was becoming less and less noticable in his current state. Gladius was concered at the sight of his corrupted brother, watching him devise a lethal poison that would kill at the slightest touch. Only he was immune to the effects, his brother said, but it was not to be. Soon his brother's face was unrecognizable. Blaming his master for this event he tried to kill Shen's father but was stopped by the Master of Shadows. It was he who wanted to kill Shen's father. After a match with Zed, Gladius backed down and allowed Zed to finish what he started.Gladius thanked him after Zed's blade cut through the throat of his former master and repaid his debt to him by joining his Order of Shadows, his brother was also invited. With his trusty Spiral Blade in hand, Gladius and the Order of Shadows enter the league...
