Ryze The Rogue Mage is a playable character in League of Legends.
He specializes in dealing high damage to one single enemy or a small cluster of enemies, and getting away. Ryze is one of the game's most featured characters, appearing in the "Season One" trailer as well as the in-game login screen.
Ryze did not believe in the traditional studies of magic like his peers, and from a young age seeked out any types of magic he could. One day he came across what was known as "thorn magic," which required him to tattoo his body with arcane spells. Ryze fights with this magic to this very day, as well as the large scroll on his back, of which the true purpose is unknown.
