Champion Description

“From the moment Cho'Gath emerged from the earth into the blinding sunlight of Runeterra, the beast was motivated by sheer insatiable hunger. The most perfect expression of the Void's desire to consume all life, Cho'Gath's complex biology quickly converts matter into new bodily growth, increasing his muscle mass and density or hardening his outer shell like an organic diamond. When growing does not meet the needs of this Void creature, it spews out the excess material like sharp spikes, leaving its prey spiky and ready to be devoured later.”
