Minotaurs in Runeterra are particularly widespread across Valoran, with the greatest concentration in the Great Barrier Mountains. Divided into tribes, most of them are under the banner of the Empire of Noxus, but there are tribes in neutral territories or under another command. Even so, they prefer to stay away from the capitals concentrated in their tribes, with a few who venture into the "big cities".
One of the largest Minotaur tribes was betrayed while the others swore allegiance to Noxus. The representative of that tribe, Alistar, was thrown together with his companions in the Challengers arenas where they had to fight for his life to quench the chant of the bloodthirsty spectators.
Though it took place before the Coup that shook the structure of the empire and completely changed its rule, The Fleshing has become a source of shame for Noxians as they fight to erase that stain from their past.
Minotaurs are over 2 meters tall bull-headed humanoids with pairs of horns and extremely strong muscle mass. Their body is covered in short fur with extremely varied coloration, but following the patterns of their lineage.
Although the Minotaurs had their own culture, upon becoming part of the Empire of Noxus some of their customs were set aside in favor of this new "cultural evolution" promoted by the empire. Most of the tribes became part of this and the previous trial of strength culture was one that remained.
Some smaller tribes ended up migrating to Demacia, where they were accepted by society but also ended up giving up some of their customs in favor of living in society under the Demacian flag.
