Gargoyles are basically fancy drainage pipes. And our old buddy Galio is definitely not a drainage pipe—he's a living statue that counters the cloaks off of magic-wielding enemies. We wanted to make him into a more important player in Demacia's story. So we needed to make him bigger.
Looming brazen above Demacia's walls, the colossus stands with silent lips. The elders tell of ages past, when the mighty man stirred to defend the huddled masses. Many doubt these legends. But—like imprisoned lightning—the colossus is waiting. And when he's most needed, he'll stretch his conquering limbs again.
