I did not create the art.
**Ossein**, The Insolent Serpent
Ossein lives on The Shadow Isles and attacks with a flail, the curse of the island transformed him into a two tailed monstrosity.
Previously he was known for his outstanding feats on the battlefield using his flail, but also for being a sly cheapskate. He would go against his word quite often if the outcome wasn't what he had previously expected or if he found a better outcome elsewhere.
Carrying around his flail nick-named "Serpent's Tongue" and being such an unreliable partner made people start calling him "The Snake". Rumors spread like wildfire and it stuck very well, next to nobody would deal with him unless they knew that they had plenty to offer him.
Back in his childhood days Ossein was a boy with fairly average parents, who worked hard at their jobs of raising the livestock and butchering it. His father grew to having a gambling problem and incurred a large debt to plenty soldiers of the king's army.
Ossein was 8 years old when his mother left him and his dad for a better life, abondening him with his abusive and indebted father.
A year later the guards and soldiers had enough of his father's debt, offering him no more time to pay up, and they captured him to bring him before the king.
once present the king had no time to bother with such petty affairs and granted them to do what they wanted.
The soldiers dragged Ossein and his father out of town and began to deliver harsh blows to the kid and his father.
The captain of the soldiers stopped them, and pulled Ossein up from off the ground "No no no, the boy must watch his father, how can he do that while you're beating him up too?" he said as he tightened his grip on Ossein "Now look, this is what happens when you disrespect the king and his soldiers".
After some time of pummeling Ossein's dad, when his dad was begging them to stop, Ossein grabbed a nearby rock and swung at the captain's head; the force threw his helmet into the sky and left a slight scratch on his face. Afterwards the captain almost punished the child but instead decided to make a proposal "Alriight, we'll let you go old man. But, you have to turn this lad over to the militia, can you do that? This kid has potential, I'm sure the king could use someone like him down the road, a strong arm indeed".
Ossein's father agreed with no second thought, and Ossein was put under the captain's watch.
In his later years, around the age of 23, he left the army, and began working as a hired mercenary for close to 7 years, fighting battles for a steep price.
But one day while conversing at a tavern he learned that a friend of his mother had fled from a village far away.
After inquiring more about the details he set out to find the village, but came only to a destroyed town, burnt to the ground and turned into rubble.
Within the myriad of dead bodies he found his mother, lifeless, and grew increasingly angry at the king and his army. He knew exactly who lead this assault.
He returned to the capital to speak with the army's captain, and once granted audience was told how they had attacked the village to claim a special ingredient needed for specific magic that the king needed, and knew no more about the matter.
Ossein decided to find his father, who turned out to be cast in prison, by the king's order he was a prisoner for life, which made Ossein even more angry and full of bitterness toward the king.
Putting on a facade he joined the army once again, but only to secretly get closer to the king and enact his vengeance.
Once everything was in place for the king to enact his magic, Ossein poisoned one of the ingredients with a vial that he paid to have cursed by a mage.
Whether the magic would've worked or not remains a mystery, and not even Ossein knows if he was the cause of what happened, but nothing changes what transpired that day.
The island grew black and cursed, and terrible things began to happen. The curse held an ironic fate for Ossein and turned him into a snake-like being with two tails.
(I will probably have to tweak this once I actually read the story about the Ruined King xP )
Passive: Offensive Defense
Ossein only gains 50% bonus health, armor, and magic resist.
Ossein's basic attacks deal 0+(20% Bonus AR, 20% Bonus MR), and ever 3rd attack deals a bonus (5% max health)+(20% Bonus AR, 20% Bonus MR) and has 50 increased range.
Q: Split Tail | CD 12/11.5/11/10.5/10 | Cost 50/55/60/65/70 | Radius 300
Ossein whips his two tails forward, damaging all units around him for 60/100/140/180/220+(150% Bonus AR, 100% Bonus AD) phsical damage.
Enemies in the front that are hit by both tails are stunned for 1.5 seconds.
W: Acid Cloud | CD 16/15/14/13/12 | Cost 50/60/70/80/90 | Range 1200 | Radius 300
Ossein spits out a corrosive cloud that moves 200 units per second, lasts 6 seconds, deals 20/40/60/80/100+(45% Bonus MR, 20% AP) every 0.5 seconds, and lowers enemies Armor and Magic Resist by 20/25/30/35/40% for 1 second.

Recast within 1 second to pull yourself to the head of the flail and taunt all enemies in the zone for 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 seconds.
Attacking immediately recovers his flail and stops him from recasting.
Passive: Serpent's Dexterity
Ossein gains 10/15/20/25/30% increased attack speed and 10/20/30/40/50 bonus attack range.

Ossein covers himself in bones reducing damage received by 20%+(15% Bonus AR/MR) and consumes each damaging basic attack or spell taken as charges for 5 seconds, up to a max of 20.
At the end or when recasted he releases a swirling vortex of Serpents that deals 30/45/60(+5% Bonus Health, 8% AP) magic damage over 3 seconds for each charge in an area around him, and gains a 2 second decaying shield for 50/100/150+(20% Bonus AR/MR) to 100/200/300+(40% Bonus AR/MR) depending on how long he channeled.
DOT effects add 1 serpent per second.
Works as a very unorthodox tank.
