Because Kayle and Morgana are not totally cliché ? Then why is Morgana portrayed as completely evil in every part of the lore except her own ? (and even then, her voice lines are much more evil thatn I'd expect from someone who is trying to save her people...)
We saw that once more with the "Aether Wing Kayle" skin where she's again portrayed as completely angelic while Morgana is shown as "evil".

I thought this was kind of the void niche as far as the art style goes.

Demons are kinda lame, and we got Void monsters, which are infinetly cooler.

What we really need is this: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...5#post34211585

I like this. However Arclight Varus and Aether Wing Kayle (the art/style at least) say otherwise.. :/ Cool skins, but I can't help looking at Arclight Varus and immediately remember Act 4 of Diablo 3 (and act 5 in d2). Likewise, I can't help ALWAYS being reminded of the Protoss when i see Aether Wing Kayle, Nova (the ghost in starcraft) in Steel Legion Lux, and Jim Raynor in Steel Legion Garen.
Theyre all really cool skins, but they're just too similar to popular games to not constantly think of the reference

if you do a demon champ could it be one of the really slick, intelligent ones? I've always favored those over the pure brute demons.

I always assumed what came out of the Void were essentially LoL's demons.

I always just kinda assumed the Void champions were the LoL equivalent to demons. Certainly, everytime I look at Cho'Gath, he looks pretty demonic.

I agree that Morgana's sympathetic side is not really executed on well outside of her lore, that is an area I'd like us to improve.

Archetypes like good and evil, and their symbolic images in angels and demons respectively never get old.

Seriously, I hope Riot does not really have this mentality... Pure chaos born demons, and bastions of good angels are some of the most badass things you can get in any medium!
