Ictinus is a proud man of Noxus, a no-nonsense general who suffers no weaklings in his troop. Ictinus refused to take any part of the events regarding the succession of former Grand General Darkwill, only saying he would stand behind whomever was chosen. Thus, when Swain proved victorious, Ictinus quickly took to his new Grand General, and grimly marched throughout the armies of Noxus, weeding out any fools who refused to rise up to support their new leader.
Ictinus is a man whose presence can be felt by both enemy and ally alike. To the soldiers he commands, he is a beacon of strength to look up to and try to emulate, while to his foes, his mere presence strikes fear into their hearts and can quickly cause them to break ranks and flee before him. Ictinus only lets the strongest into his personally-commanded troop of the Noxian armies, and any who seek to join must engage him in open combat. If they can survive long enough, they are allowed to join, and Ictinus will immediately take to disciplining them into a warrior the Noxian people can be proud of. Those who have managed to enter his powerful group (And survived his brutal training long enough to tell the tale) have complete loyalty in him, and suffer no detractors to live in their presence. Some have even said that Ictinus would make a good Grand General himself, but Ictinus does not care for political power, he merely seeks to ensure that the strongest, and only the strongest are in the armies of Noxus.
"A soldier true to the spirit of Noxus must be molded through the discipline of their commander."
The Commandant has arrived.
At match start-up
Time to weed out the weaklings.
They will obey their Commandant.
Firm and Immovable.
There'll be no squabbles.
Follow your Orders.
Weed out the whelps.
The weak have no place in my squads.
Strength AND Stability.
Kick out the cowards.
Only the strong have a place in my troop.
Let's see if it's worth my time.
A single presence can change a lot of tides.
Noxus has no use for cowards.
Prove you're worthy of my command.
Be strong, or be crushed.
Dent me, if you can.
Fight or flee, it makes no difference.
You're a bold one.
Get out of my path, or be crushed under it.
Can they withstand me?
Fear me or Revere me.
Noxus needs firm fighters, not fearful fools.
Out of my way, coward!
Using Disciplinary Action
Here it comes!
Quake with fear!
I don't take kindly to cowardice!
Desertion means Death!
Insubordination will NOT be tolerated!
Using Flanking Maneuver
This'll learn ya!
Using No Quarter
Ictinus sits down on the ground, and starts doodling in the dirt, using the bottom of his axe's handle as a drawing device. He draws a stick-figure version of himself standing triumphant on-top a pile of bodies. He then stands up, laughing at his doodle. He then rubs it out with his foot and resumes his normal pose.
Let's see... a little bit here... a tad there, and... perfect!
(Hums to himself as he draws.) And there! No painter could do better!
(Hums to himself as he draws.) Maybe if I had an actual canvas, it would look more inspiring.
Ictinus sets his two weapons on the ground, and then cracks his knuckles and then loosens himself up, and picks up his weapons to resume his normal pose.
Time for some disciplinary action.
Troublemakers are treated as enemy combatants.
Let's whip you into shape, whelp.
Taunting near an enemy Riven
Riven, a spirit of weakness grasps you.
I can help you regain that faith you've lost, Riven.
Running like you are only proves your cowardice, Riven.
Taunting near an enemy Leblanc
Deceptive tactics are a sign of weakness.
The Black Rose has no future in the Noxus of tomorrow.
Leblanc, you're no strong leader for those weaklings in the Black Rose to look towards.
Taunting near an allied Darius
Let us show them the strength of Noxus, Darius.
Taunting near an enemy Garen
You coddle the weak with your pursuit of Justice, fool.
Demacia, the nation of blow-hards.
Taunting near an enemy Jarvan IV
Let's whip the little prince-ling into shape, shall we?
Time for your discipline, royal brat.
Ictinus sets down his two weapons and starts doing the "Circle-floor shuffle" as seen and exemplified by Donald O' Connor in the "Make 'Em Laugh" song from "Singin' In the Rain".
Ictinus sets his sword on the ground alongside his leg and then wipes his axe's blade off with his hand, before laying it along his shoulder and laughing.
Ictinus drops his two weapons while standing still for a moment, before teetering back and forth, and then falling backwards onto his back.
