Varion is a long range, versatile ranged Carry capable of getting in and out of fights with ease. Varion can easily farm while harassing enemy Shapers in lane from afar, but excels at surprising enemies close-up with his extremely high mobility. The passive damage bonuses on Varion’s Basic Attack after using abilities affords him higher base damage than almost any other Shaper, and can often propel him into an extremely threatening late game carry status. In a teamfight, causing widespread chaos with his Ultimate while avoiding enemies with his mobility is key to being successful.

Bio

Varion, the Mercenary
Age: 24 Place of Birth: Mercantile City-State of Genalfi Vitality: Adaptability
Allies: Mikella Acquaintances: None Enemies: None
“Look on the bright side. Win or lose, I still get paid.”

Born in the slums of a western city-state, Varion’s marksmanship, wit, and charm bring him wealth as a soldier-for-hire – which he quickly squanders on drink and gambling. He accepts the highs and lows of life with a smile and a shrug, which drew the Spirit of Adaptability to him.

Lore

I'll explain about the noodles in a minute.

These are good times. The merchants, they love to play at war. Good money for folks like me, eh? Those poor bastards who fight for nobles, what do they get for their troubles? We dirty mercenaries, we get good clean cash. Survive enough battles, you buy your own nobility. Live the dream - the Promise of the West!

But listen. It's the company that makes it all bearable, yeah? There are some crazy, scary people in the business. Guys in it for the money, or power, or killing. They don't last. No one wants to work with them. When you're neck-deep in swords and shit, you want someone you can trust at your back.

The good people, you find each other. You stick together. You make each other laugh when the fight's gone grim. Marching past midnight for weeks and months, you hold each other up. Bad employer, you drink and complain together. You hash out where they screwed up over late, cold dinners. You plan better days.

The Silver Hounds were a dream unit. Every one of us the best. Every one a great heart. You give us a month, we could take any city. You give us an afternoon, we could charm the peasants over to you. Spirits, I miss those days.

They're all dead now. Died when the Duca Anzerani sent us to the Heart of the World. A flash of light, and they all fell like sacks of grain. Marzo, Genna, Viazi. Every last one. Just stopped breathing. Didn't - didn't even have time to-.

Ah, hell.

Sorry, cousin. I'm going to pour one out for the dead. Then another for me, so I don't remember the good times so well. Then I'll tell you about the noodles.
