Alternate Realities: Skin Lore
 
Recently I saw a post about lore behind different skins. What if Syndra was not dark, but light, and driven by justice? What if Varus never gave into the darkness as a means to get his revenge?

This got me thinking, what other skins have interesting alternate reality lore behind them, and what skins would we like to see? (lore wise)

I'll get things started. (This is all speculation btw)

First off PFE. Ez in da future! He's fighting the battlecast monsters, and seems to have augmented himself in order to match their power. This includes, so far, Urgot, Cho, and possibly Nocturne (new skin isn't "battle cast" but certainly fits the theme) Skarner is also speculated to have a battle cast counterpart in the works.

As far as questions..

What do you think about dark crystal ryze? What is the crystal, and what did it do to him?

Obv some skins are just aethstetic, and have no lore behind them. I think a lot do though, and it would be cool to discuss some ideas on what they might be.

In a Valoran that was designed by a European footballer, wars are not determined by shot, steel and sorcery, they are decided in international sporting matches.
In matches held on the Pitch of Justice, two teams of 11 players fight it out by playing soccer to decide the outcomes of national disputes, and hence we see: Red Card Katarina, Goalie Blitzcrank, Strike Ezreal and All-Star Akali.

Demonblade Tryndamere: In an effort to slay the Noxian assassins who slaughtered his tribe, the young Tryndamere took a different path to power. Rather than serving as a hired sword under the barbarian warlords of the area, he bartered his soul to a corrupt power born of ancient evil in exchange for limitless, godlike strength. After massacring those who had wronged him, he was imprisoned by summoners of the league and made to fight (in a similar fashion to Brand, Nocturne, and Fiddlesticks).

Eternum Nocturne: The feared creature of death and nightmares have never mastered his own fear of death. Seeking an immortal shell to hold the countless of spirits he has killed over eons. He had embraced the glorious evolution. However as a result of the powers that be, he soon learned he can now seek out other eras of time and space to bring swift death to those who dare to break away from their fate.

Bumping because I believe this has potential.

Rugged Garen: After forcefully preventing the execution of his sister, Luxanna Crownguard, on false charges of treason, Garen fled his beloved city-state hoping that he could prove the innocence of himself and his family. Living off the land in Valoran and providing for his traumatized sister, the former-veteran-turned-survivalist is still bound by the summoning magic of the League of Legends. Rather than using this for the benefit of the Demacian hierarchy to track down the wanted man, the summoners instead keep his location secret from Jarvan III and his royal guard, still summoning Garen to the fields of justice as a hired sword.

The prehistoric Kog'Maw and Cho'Gath seem interesting too. What caused them to suddenly be filled with life again?

Underworld TF:
In the aftermath of Dr. Rath's experiment, the man known as Twisted Fate inadvertently teleported in a moment of rage. However, his luck had failed him this time around; while he had undergone the experiment with no ill effect, his use of Gate had brought him to a far more sinister place. Fate was a capable fighter in a normal situation, but this place brought unknown, overpowering foes.
Months later, the corrupted Card Master would reappear in the Institute of War, wearing armor of strange design and surrounded by ghostly cards. He would fight as a Champion, using the power given by Rath and his newfound masters for the glory of the Shadow Isles.

Full Metal Jayce: Taking upon the research notes given by Ezreal and viewing the threat of Piddley's Battlecast Project conceived by Viktor whom had finally been given the attention by Zaun's officials. The Battlecast project was designed to contain the power of mythical creatures that once belonged to the domain of summoners alone. However it was too late to stop Zaun from establishing GANK industries, a company dedicated to encasing mythical creatures in Battlecast form.

Jayce, taking the power crystal's abilities and Ezreal's powered armor designed incorporated it into a powersuit that can maximize the potential of the Hextech capacitor and begin his fight at the fields of justice.
