Proliv the Arcane Duelist Background: Proliv is a very humble individual from Demacia. He never thinks of himself highly, due to his poor background. It is because of his lack of self confidence that he strives to always improve. Lore: Originating from Demacia, Proliv aspired to be a soldier of high rank. Yet he was unable to even train for he grew up poor and unable to afford weapons or armor. He attempted to train in hand to hand combat but found little success; however, his determination did not go unnoticed. Commander Garen offered to train the lad to be a soldier and presented him with official Demacian training gear. Proliv immediately took up the offer, training day and night with Garen. Once deemed worthy, Proliv was given an offer to be made an official soldier of Garen’s unit. He declined this offer, for he wished to obtain a set of armor and weapons impossible to replicate, as a way to ensure he would be worthy of the position offered. He searched through text after text for some lost arms that could prove useful. In one text, he learned of arcane arts studied by the ancient society of Shurima, and how one being was able to form their body into pure arcane energy. This gave him an idea, what if he could transform his weapons into pure arcane energy, as the Shuriman did to his body? And so Proliv traversed through Runeterra to the learn of this arcane being. Eventually, after years of study, he learned of a method to extend an arcane pulse and hold it steady with the use of runic plates; however, Proliv was only able to obtain four plates through his travels. He decided to use three of the plates, two of which were daggers called Ebb and Flow and one, with the symbol for life, in the center of his chestplate. The final rune, with the symbol for speed, is attached to his back, unsure of what will occur if he focuses arcane energy towards the rune. Feeling content with what he has found, Proliv sets off to prove his worth to Garen. “There is no limit to how one can improve, and so I must always progress forward” - Proliv Stats HP: 582.8 HP/Level: 89 HP/5s: 8.51 HP/5s/Level: 0.65 MP: 327.2 MP/Level: 48 MP/5s: 5.75 MP/5s/Level: 0.25 AD: 56.04 AD/Level: 3.2 AS: 0.651 AS/Level: 3% AR: 25.88 AR/Level: 3.5 MR: 32.1 MR/Level: 1.25 MS: 340 Range: 125 Skills: Passive: Ebb and Flow Every 7/6/5/4th attack, Proliv will stab his target with Ebb and Flow, returning 40% of the damage dealt as health.

Q: Cloak and Dagger Passive: Proliv’s runic plates draw mana towards them, gathering mana based on (1.5/2/2.5/3/3.5)% of damage dealt from single target attacks or abilities. The reason for it being single target damage is to avoid something like Sunfire Cape regenerating large amounts of mana each second.

Selection Quote: “Impart your knowledge on me, summoner.” Appearance: A male in his early 20s, he has long black hair with a scruffy, poorly shaved beard. His height is 6’3”, with an all around physique. The only true piece of armor he has is a mail chestplate with the dark red banner covering it. Otherwise, he wears black cloth gloves, dark pants, and leather shoes. All of the clothing appears worn, due to the long travels and poor status he has. The rune in the chestplate acts as the logo of the banner, with the rune on his back having a similar effect. Ebb and Flow are held in the upright positions, to allow for smooth slicing and stabbing animations. Each auto attack will alternate which dagger is used, besides for the 7th attack where both are used. Edit: adjusted base values of W shield. Changed wording for clarity on some abilities. Edit 2: Changed around values for E damage, knock-up radius and stun duration. Made his passive have a scaling effect. Clarity added for ultimate. Mana cost of Q increased.
