The skin has obvious roots in the Season 8 theme of lava and fire. The armor of the character glows like hot magma. The setup also includes menacing spikes, made for what seems to be black steel or wrought iron.
It’s a little bit of a twist on the Fort Knight set of the skins from the beginning of Fortnite’s rise to glory. You can definitely see the inspiration the artists took from the popular Black Knight skin. Though the ‘Ruin’ skin is much, much more ‘evil’ in its appearance.
