+1 For Kuz
It also would make sense for him to be a warden since one of his abilities actually grabs your teammates and takes them out of harm's way. If he was all about harvesting souls, he wouldn't have any "support" abilities. Thresh is able to use his chains to grab and pull an ally away and hook and keep those he deems as prisoners towards him or wherever he wants.
He does literal crowd control, he divides the innocent from the guilty. The way he's made out now, he seems like a badass with a soul reaping cause, but that skill of his makes him seem...silly if he's about stealing your soul. Why should he help his teammates in any sense of the word if he wants them to die anyways?
If he was a warden of the League`s prisons, I can imagine him grabbing foolish Summoners who got ab it too close to Cho'gath's cage. Not really good, not really evil, just is.
In terms of "what if" about Thresh, I'm going to run along her thought process. Him being a Noxian would mean he knows a lot about the underbelly of Noxus, and he would know a large chunk of Noxus' history. Would that make him loyal to Noxus? Does he care more about his job than he does about his city-state? Is he so one track minded that nationality means nothing to him anymore, that if you are prisoner of his he will do what it takes to keep you in place, by any means necessary?
As he stands now in his current lore, because he deals purely with souls and that he wants to grab them and make them his own and add to his power, I think Morgana, Nasus, Mordekaiser, Cho'gath, Ahri, Hecarim, Yorick, and Karthus (Mostly current and old) need to give him the, "What are you doing that's new" look?
Having Thresh act as a proper warden with a hint of neutrality instead of a bad guy bad @ss with scythes would be far more interesting.
