- Master Necromancer (and Dean of Necro U).
From Note from Noxus: "Greetings Hero. Your skills are quickly becoming legend but they are nothing compared to the power over life and death that I wield. Soon I arrive in DoomWood, and you will taste real power. See you there."
Noxus: The army is almost complete!
Noxus: The world shall be wrapped in the eternal embrace of darkness ...
Noxus: HEAR ME, denizens of the Necropolis!
Noxus: I applaud your skill and effort. But we have little time left to complete our most grand project
Noxus: An army of 100 million undead unlike anything the world has ever seen before!
Noxus: I expect every Necromancer in the Necropolis to redouble their efforts ...
Noxus: Especially you, Necromantress.
Necromantress: As you desire master.
Necromantress: ... Just so long as you hold up your end of the bargain ... and return my brother to me.
Noxus: Look at them. Thousands of loyal soldiers for Sepulchure. Your skill continues to impress me.
Noxus: However, as my top student, you recent defeat in Moonridge is unsettling.
Noxus: I expect you to redeem yourself by making an example of those two meddling heroes with your latest ... creations.
Noxus: Now my student ... ALL MY STUDENTS ... BACK TO WORK!
Noxus: Sepulchure's Flying Castle will be here soon and Sepulchure expects an army almost twice this size!
Noxus: They will be coming your way very soon, my pupil.
Necromantress: This time I will finish these heroes.
Noxus: Make certain that you do. I find your previous failures very disturbing. It is unlike you to fail so utterly.
Noxus: There will be no holding back this time, Necromantress. When the time comes, summon Edgar.
Necromantress: Edgar? But if I place his spirit in ... the risk ...
Noxus: Do I make myself clear?
Necromantress: ... Yes Master. It will be done.
Noxus: Very good.
Noxus: Necromantress! To my side!
Necromantress: Yes, Master Noxus?
Noxus: All of our work...destroyed! Sepulchure will be furious unless we hand him those who are responsible.
Noxus: <Character>, Artix, and the other heroes of Falconreach have broken through our defenses.
Noxus: I want you to unleash your latest creations, the Strangeknight and his Shadowhounds, on them.
Noxus: This is your chance to avenge your brother. Do not fail his memory!
Necromantress: The Strangeknight is the living embodiment of my HATRED of Artix and <Character>!
Necromantress: I will set my creations on them and get back to producing soldiers for as long as I can.
Necromantress: They will PAY!
Noxus: Good! Use your hatred to fuel your magic! Let the Darkness Orb magnify it! Destroy them!
Noxus: DESTROY THEM ALL! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Noxus: Ah good, Artix and <Character>. Right on time.
<Character>: Surrender the Darkness Orb, Noxus, and we may just let you walk out of Doomwood.
<Character>: Sepulchure has his own ways of dealing with failures like you.
Noxus: Give YOU the Darkness Orb? You could not control its power. I would never hand it over to you...even if I had it.
<Character>: You don't have it?
Artix: Only a necromancer with the power of the Darkness Orb could have built that army.
Noxus: Don't you fools understand yet?
Noxus: Artix, the day that you and Vayle came out of the Guardian Tower, Vayle brought the power with her ...
Noxus: ...Lady Vayle IS the Elemental Orb of Darkness now ...
Noxus:...and I alone control her!
I had spent months trying to enter the chamber beneath the Guardian Tower ...
... But on that day I felt the power of the orb leave the chamber on its own.
... Imagine my surprise when I felt all that dark power flowing from a little girl...
... I knew that the orb had chosen to bind with this girl, and if I couldn't control the orb ...
... Then I would control the girl. After I 'saved' her from the town we watched it burn together ...
... and I began to teach her.
Vayle: Thank you for saving me Master Noxus, but my brother... I wish you could have saved him too.
Vayle: I wish I wasn't too late.
Noxus:When you are a necromancer, child, there is no such thing as "too late".
Noxus: I can teach you, if you like. Simply focus on your brother's energy... image capturing it in a bottle.
Vayle: Master Noxus! I did it! I can feel him inside that crystal!
Edgar: Hhhehhhelllp Mmmmeeeeeeeee
Vayle: It sounds... it sounds like he's in pain. Oh, how do we help him?!
Noxus: He just wants to live again, that is all.
Noxus: We will find a way, Vayle. If you become my student, I will teach you all that I know and we will find a way to bring him back.
Vayle: Do you promise? Do you promise that you can bring Edgar back?
Noxus: It will take much hard work on your part, but yes... I promise, Vayle.
Noxus: Since that day I have been using her... the power inside her... for myself.
Noxus: I had to be careful not to teach her too much. With the Orb bound to her, she could easily overpower me.
Noxus: The years passed and I raised her as a necromantress.
Noxus: In time, with her help, I became Dean of Necromancy University and she became my star student.
Noxus: Once you two troublemakers are finished, she will be able to rebuild Sepulchure's undead arm in a matter of moments.
<Character>: So you never even planned on helping her use necromancy to raise her brother?
Noxus: Raise her brother? Necromancy is using dark power to control the dead... not revive them.
Noxus: Necromancy may have that kind of power but I've never seen it.
Noxus: Besides, how would I control her if I returned her brother to her? What would have been the point of killing him in the first place?
Artix: Killing him? He died as a result of The Green Mist. Do you mean that you...?
Noxus: That's right. The Green Mist was a deadly disease that I created to wipe out that village... YOUR village, Artix.
Noxus: If I had known that your exposure to the Orb made you resistant to my corruption I would have made other... arrangements.
Noxus: Especially considering what a thorn in my side that both you and <Character> have become.
Noxus: All that ends here and now. I will finish you like I should have years ago. I will re-create the undead army...
Noxus: ... and I will continue using Vayle as my puppet, for as long as I can use her brother as bait.
Vayle: I'VE HEARD ENOUGH!
Vayle: All these years... I TRUSTED YOU! YOU HAVE BEEN USING ME!!
Noxus: Vayle! You misunderstood me. Let me make it clear to you.
Vayle: No more of your LIES, "Master" Noxus!
Vayle: <Character>, I can never forgive what you have done... there still may have been hope... but let me help you finish Noxus.
Vayle: With all of our power combined, this slug cannot possibly stand against us.
Noxus: BAH! I was going to have to kill you for the Orb eventually, child. Now is as good a time as any.
Noxus: COME! Face NOXUS and know the power of a TRUE NECROMANCER!
Letter to Students
(From Design Notes, June 12, 2008 - Prior to the Friday the 13th War)
Letter From the Dead of Students;
Dear Student of Necromancy University,
We have recently been alerted to a VERY LARGE group of heroes marching toward the Necropolis from Falconreach. All that we know for certain is that they number in the thousands and they are not in the mood to talk things over peacefully. This means that, unfortunately, the regular invasion of Falconreach will have to be canceled. This also means that a great number of the undead army that you have been tirelessly working on for Sepulchure will be destroyed! We MUST not let these heroes ruins our plans. We must put aside our differences and work together as a single destructive machine! THE PRODUCTION OF UNDEAD SOLDIERS WILL CONTINUE during the invasion of our home and we will drive these invaders back to their pathetic town.
Any student caught running from the fight will be slain on sight. Any student who fails to meet their undead soldier quota will be slain on sight. Any student caught complaining about the new "slain on sight" policies will be slain on sight.
Be prepared for a long fight, my students. Remember your lessons well.
Dean of Students
