Artix: Something has been bothering me, <Character>.
Artix: Noxus has built Sepulchure a massive army and I think I may know how. In order to explain I'll need to start from the beginning.
At the beginning of the quest you equip Kid Artix armor
Many years ago in Doomwood...
*Shows Young Artix chopping wood*
Artix's Voice: I grew up in a village here in Doomwood...
Artix's Voice: It was not very large, but it was large enough that I had never met Vayle before THAT day...
Artix's Voice: I was in the forest outside of town chopping wood when I heard someone calling for help...
Artix: *whew* Nearly done!
Help! Someone, please, help me! Brother....!
Artix: That is coming from the river! I AM COMING!
Artix's Voice: I ran to the river as fast as I could...
If you run upwards at the very beginning of the quest:
Message bubble pops up and says, "No... I ran to the RIVER as fast as I could."
*You see who appears to be Young Vayle stuck in the river*
Artix's Voice: I saw that someone... a little girl... had fallen into the river...
Artix's Voice: She was clinging onto a rock but the current was too strong for her...
Artix's Voice: I had to try and save her...
Artix: Try to hold on, I will go get help!
Help! I can't hold on! Please, help me!
Artix's Voice: Town was not too far but I knew that, by the time I returned, she would be gone...
*You see them trying to reach each other's hands*
Artix's Voice: I tried to reach her...
Artix's Voice: But I slipped...
*Artix slips and falls into the river*
Artix's Voice: The rest...
Artix's Voice: ..Is darkness.
Artix's Voice: Some time later I awoke to the sound of sobbing...
*cry cry, sniiifff*
*Artix raises his head*
Artix: *Cough splurt* Uhhh. What a ride...
Artix: Note to self.... next time, use a tree branch to reach the person in the river.
*sniiifff* You're alive!?
Artix: I... think so. How can I tell?
Yeah, you're *sob* alive
Artix: Ow, my head.. Where are we?
*She lowers her arm off her face*
I... Don't know.
Artix: The river must have washed us up in this cave... You are from my village, right?
Vayle: I'm Vayle. Yeah, I live in the village too... with my brother.
Artix: What about your parents?
Vayle: They're... dead. It's just me and my brother now.
Vayle: We look out for each other. He'll be worried if I don't come home before sunset.
Vayle: He's the strongest, bravest best brother ever. If he was here, he would know how to get us out of this cave. *sob*
Artix: Do not worry Vayle. My name is Artix...
Artix: I will get you back to your brother as soon as I can! I think I see a tunnel over there.
Artix: There is no need to be scared. Follow me, I will protect you!
Vayle: O..*sniff* Ok.
If you run left at the first screen when inside the cave:
You see a blue crystal, if clicked, message box pops up and says, "Do you want to use this and recover your HP/MP?"
Note: It is a one time heal.
Artix: I see light! It looks like we have made it out, Vayle!
Vayle: What's THAT light? It's... pulsing.
Artix: I do not think we should...
*Vayle walks toward the blue light*
Artix: Vayle... come back. We should leave!
Artix: Do not forget about your brother! He will be worried!
Artix: VAYLE! I am coming!
*Artix walks over to her*
Artix's Voice: I knew exactly where we were as soon as I saw the chamber...
Artix: This looks like... the old Guardian Tower. We should not be here!
Artix: Are you alright? What... what happened to you?
Vayle: I'm fine, I think. I just touched that orb...
*Artix lifts the orb up*
Artix's Voice: As I lifted the orb, I heard it talking to me...
Artix's Voice: It was whispering in my mind...
Artix's Voice: It said that I would have great strength and great power...
Artix's Voice: It said that I could increase that power a thousandfold, if I gave myself over to the darkness...
Artix's Voice: ...
Artix's Voice: There was a moment when I almost...
Artix's Voice: ...
Artix's Voice: ...But I did not.
*Artix lowers the orb to the ground*
Artix's Voice: Right then and there I decided to turn my back on the darkness forever...
Artix's Voice: That was when I decided to become a power of good!
Artix: I am leaving, Vayle.
Artix: This is a bad place and we should NOT be here. Come on.
*Artix walks away*
*Vayle is about to touch the orb again*
Artix's Voice: Once we got back to the village, things did not quite go as I expected...
Brother: VAYLE! I was so worried. What... are those WINGS? What... ??!!
Vayle: Brother, please don't be mad! I got lost and this boy found me.
Vayle: His name is Artix and he...
Brother: YOU! Somehow you did this to my little sister! You... stay away from her!
Artix: But... No... I....
Brother: I SAID STAY AWAY!
*Green Mist rolls in*
Artix's Voice: That night I was still trying to find a way to explain things to Vayle's brother...
Artix's Voice: That is when the Green Mist rolled in...
Artix's Voice: Suddenly everyone in town was transformed into... zombies...
Artix's Voice: That night I lost everything and everyone that I ever knew...
Artix's Voice: ...
Artix's Voice: I had no choice. I had to fight my way out..
If you go left at first screen in town:
Message bubble pops up and says, "Actually... I think I left town, right about now."
*Shows a town burning with someone in the distance*
Artix's Voice: As I looked back at the village I thought I saw a person.... with wings...
Artix's Voice: but then, the figure was lost in the smoke...
Artix's Voice: I turned my back on the village and ran for my life ...
Artix's Voice: I knew nobody could survive that. I thought I was the only one who lived...
*Shows Artix lying on the ground*
Artix's Voice: I wandered in the woods for... I do not know how long...
Artix's Voice: Eventually I reached the end of my strength...
Artix's Voice: I thought that I was done for... then...
*Woman comes in and Artix lifts his head*
Lady Celestia: Hello there, young man...
Lady Celestia: ...Would you like some tea?
Artix: She nursed me back to health and began training me to battle the forces of evil (but I had enough tea to last me a lifetime).
Artix: My contact with the orb had changed me.
Artix: I could now sense the presence of the undead, and I instinctually knew the best way to battle them.
Artix: A few years later I joined the paladin order as a paladin-in-training.
Artix: I put all thoughts of the village behind and looked forward to my new life.
Artix: Then, when I saw Vayle it all came back to me.
Artix: She and I were the only ones who survived that night... we were unchanged by the Green Mist.
Artix: She and I were the only ones who touched that orb...
Artix: I think that orb was the Elemental Orb of Darkness.
Artix: I do not know how but I think Noxus got his hands on it, and is using its power to help construct Sepulchure's army.
Artix: If I am right... stopping Noxus is more important than I first thought.
Artix: I am just glad that you are by my side <Character>.
Artix: Together, I KNOW that we can stop Noxus and the necromancers!
