Purist Thunderwrath was a hard-fighting, road-worn, deeply committed knight, sworn to the order in which he had grown up as squire to elder knights of great reputation. He had spent his entire life in the service of the Omniscience, the All Seeing One. Theirs was a holy struggle, and so embedded was he in his duty that he never questioned it so long as he had the strength to fight and the impetuous valor that comes with youth. But over the long years of the crusade, as his elders passed away and were buried in sorry graves at the side of muddy tracks, as his bond-brothers fell in battle to uncouth creatures that refused to bow to the Omniscience, as his own squires were chewed away by ambush and plague and bad water, he began to question the meaning of his vows--the meaning of the whole crusade. After deep meditation, he parted ways with his army and commenced a long trek back to the cave-riddled cliffs of Emauracus, and there he set a challenge to the priests of the Omniscience. No knight had ever questioned them before, and they tried to throw him into the pit of sacrifice, but Purist would not be moved. For as he faced them down, he began to glow with a holy light, and they saw that the Omniscience had chosen to reveal Itself to him. The Elder Hierophant led him on a journey of weeks down into the deepest chamber, the holy of holies, where waited not some abstract concept of wisdom and insight, not some carved relic requiring an injection of imagination to believe in, but the old one itself. It had not merely dwelt in those rocks for billions of aeons; no, It had created them. The Omniscience had formed the immense mineral shell of the planet around itself, as a defense against the numerous terrors of space. Thus the All Seeing One claimed to have created the world, and given the other truths revealed to Puritan on that day, the knight had no reason to refute the story. Perhaps the Omniscience is a liar, deep in its prison of stone, and not the world's creator at all, but Omniknight never again questioned his faith. His campaign had meaning at last. And there can be no question that the glorious powers that imbue him, and give his companions such strength in battle, are real beyond any doubt.

I think Riot's goal in Garen was making a character who fell under the "plain old knight" archetype. Hell, the fact that one of the first things you thought of when comparing Omniknight to any other hero from any other game was Garen... That in itself implies that Riot's design wasn't too ineffective.

That aside, I do think his design is absolutely spectacular, though I somewhat wish they had gone a biiit further away from the Uther design the original hero had.

I for one would never have compared Omniknight to Garen because they play so differently, when I saw Garen i thought "Juggernaut, Necrolyte hybrid"

I never think of Garen when I see Omniknight. I think of a paladin of sorts... but garen is just a guy in armor with a big swords, not exactly original.

Garen reminds me a lot of Matt Damon, now that I think about it. Strange.

I understand what your saying, but it is not Riot hitting the mark, it's more like thinking of stupid movies and then Plan 9 from Outer Space comes to mind. Sure it is a popular, stupid, poorly directed movie, but is that the kind of attention you would want? Certainly Riot did not want to be thought of as "the champions so boring I will always think of them when bad design come to mind".
