|Skippard, The Exiled Frog|
Skippard always admired his mentor Markus's unbreakable courage in times of stress and battle and wished he could one day be as mighty as his teacher.
Skippard spent his days as a squire, dressed in squire garb, doing squire things waiting for the time in which he could prove his courage.
Well, his time came.
Skippard and Markus were sent to the Vale Of Redemption to battle for a chance at breaking their curse. Skippard was as nervous as he was excited. Markus's soticism make Skippard even more anxious.
Battle after battle, Markus saved Skippard and consistently demonstrated why he was the Radiant King's best knight. Skippard appeared to be the weakest link and his nervousness increased.
In a moment of cowardice, Skippard fled in fear and left Markus behind with a fearsome resulting in Markus's demise.
Afterward, Skippard self-imposed an exile on himself and refused to show his face in the Radiant Kingdom.
When the Ancients announced their tournament once more, Skippard decided to redeem himself -- for the curse, for the kingdom, but mostly...for Markus.
May his courage shine through.

Skippard can easily play the role of Jungle or Tank depending on how you build him. He has plenty of dueling power and a powerful AOE effect. He also has a lot of crowd control with his ultimate as a stun but what makes him different is his ability to heal allies and himself, giving him a powerful advantage when dueling targets
