Relations

  • Warwick is a former Zaunite gangster who decided to abandon his former life to try and be a 'good man'. He was captured and experimented on by SingedSquare Singed, who pumped him full of chemicals containing spliced monster DNA in an attempt to transmute the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun into the 'beast' he was deep down inside. The experiments ended up killing him only to have him resurrect as a chimera resembling a wolfman with bat ears and a fox tail.
  • The chemicals being pumped into Warwick every time he smells Blood Hunt blood as well as SingedSquare Singed's experimentation have taken a heavy toll on his psyche. He remembers little of his former life, sometimes recalling hurting a little girl implied to be JinxSquare Jinx ("You were there", "Let me forget") and apparently knowing ViSquare Vi before she defected to Piltover ("Zaun needed you!")
