To most, yordles do not conjure images to be feared. The easygoing half-pint race, though fierce, is often regarded with some degree of joviality.
Every now and again, however, a yordle turns so bad that, even at its small stature, it strikes terror into the hearts of others. Veigar is one such twisted yordle - a master of the magical black arts and a corruptor of cosmic energy, making him one of the most feared sorcerers on Valoran.
Veigar was once one of those unusual yordles who chose to trade with the outside world. Imprisoned in the city-state of Nox for years, Veigar slowly went mad in isolation from his people. He eventually escaped, but instead of returning to Bandle City, he sought tutelage from dark wizards across the land. Now he seeks to end all conflict on Valoran... by bringing all of the city-states to their knees, regardless of affiliation.
As one might expect, Veigar brings the power of dark magic to bear. He fires dark bolts of mystical energy that not only harm foes, but strips them of their magical powers. Veigar has the power to snatch a meteor from the heavens and bring it down upon a terrestrial target. He may also channel his power into an intense single-target magical strike, one that increases his magical power with each foe he dispatches. Furthermore, Veigar can also permeate the ground with magic, constricting and stunning any foe that enters the area.
Who says evil needs to come in a fearsome-looking package?
