" "The bells that resonate in his footsteps are echoes of change."
- Ryze

The Bard is a traveler from a realm beyond the stars and an agent of serendipity who strives to maintain balance wherever life resists the indifference of chaos. Many songs from Runeterra speak of its extraordinary nature and all of them say that artifacts of immense magical power attract the cosmic wanderer. Surrounded by a merry chorus of meep spirits, it is impossible to think that his actions are malevolent, as the Bard always seeks to serve the good of all ... in his own strange way.

Wanderer Guardian

It is said that most of the inhabitants of the celestial realm view their home as a wonderful vivid tapestry woven from prismatic threads of the purest starlight. However, for a prodigious entity, the intangible and eternal beauty of this dimension is not seen, but heard ... For the Bardo, a troubadour as enigmatic as it is immortal, the marvelous firmament is a symphony of sweet mystical music.

At first, he wandered aimlessly through a silent cosmos, but with a deep illusion that something miraculous would ever happen. Fate did not disappoint him and, with the formation of the first stars, the silence was broken and his ears heard the first resonant notes of creation.



He traveled among the spiraling harmonies of the stars, along with the residual microscopic scrolls of inspiration and thought left over from his birth. These incomplete specks of semitonal energy — or meeps — were drawn to him every time he joined his voice to the cosmic opus, forever resonating in a perfect chord.

This was not his masterpiece, but he still reveled in it.

However, after an immeasurable interval, a dissonance began to make itself felt. It was so small at first that the Bard may not have heard it, but the meeps spirits told him of a failed dynamic change here, an unexpected syncopation there, and even the increasing absence of sound in places where there used to be.

He explored the celestial realm for clues, until he found the source. It was about something very curious: a world with a song entirely of its own.

Motivated by an unknown magic, the music of  Runeterra was as primitive, regressed and chaotic as the mortal beings that lived there ... and yet it had an intrinsic beauty, like the loud thunder of a storm or the melodious patter of a wooden chime in the wind that precedes it. . The Bard would have appreciated it simply for what it was, but alas, this particular melody was much more than just a counterpoint to the celestial whole, and it was becoming destructive. Something had to be done.

After landing in the First Lands of  Ionia, the Bard, and their meeps crossed over into the material realm. Immediately, his ears became his eyes and a simple body was made out of trinkets and scraps of cloth that he found in the cart of a traveling musician who played the shawm, including a charming circular mask with three holes in the front.



He walked the world for an era, confusing and delighting everyone in his path, and realized that the situation was far more complex than he had imagined. It seemed that many objects of wild and unpredictable power had mistakenly ended up in Runeterra, and were altering the natural cosmic order of things. Looking back to the heavens, the Bard deduced that some other power within the celestial realm was intervening, though he could not discern to what end.

Regardless, he assumed the role of caretaker, retrieving anything that was out of place and sending it where it could no longer do harm. Although this is only the first step to harmonize the universe, it may also be the only way for this world to be saved from what is found.  past him.

And the Bard is not blind to the future. He can see that a great conflict is approaching - one that will not be fought in one kingdom, but in all - and awaits the moment when he must finally choose a side.
