As title says, I'm curious as to what inspired Jinx. Upon reading Vi's report of who Jinx is, and reading the vandalism messages from our dearly beloved #116, I cannot help but be reminded of the Joker of DC fame (with Vi here acting as a more bloodthirsty Dark Knight, if you will).

To make it clear, I'm not some random dude flaming about "LOL YOU GUYS SO ORIGINAL", because I recognize everyone gets inspiration from quite literally everything they experience, so attacking a person's originality has no merit at all. I'm asking what exactly inspired the apparently anarchic, crazy "I'm a crazy mothaf***a because IT'S SO DAMN FUN!" attitude of the champion.

I'm insanely curious about this, so any response at all would be appreciated

considering Vi has a missing sister and Vi's page was vandalized, Vi's evil criminal sister? Vi used to be a criminal but turned good. Read her lore. Maybe her sister is Jinx and she comes back for revenge against Vi for going good.

We might not find out until its near finished.

GGWP, give this man an internship at Riot XD

I could see that honestly, though Jinx doesn't seem to have any motivation, whereas Shaco is a paid-to-kill assassin, so he's motivated by greed to an extent whereas she doesn't appear to be.

Precisely, Joker and Harley are just being horrible persons for the sake of being horrible, though some may argue Joker is attempting to just exist as a "dark mirror" of Batman, but that's an argument for another day methinks

actually, shaco also has no motivation. he kills because its fun regardless of if money is involved or not, kind of like the joker. he only uses the money as funds/an excuse to kill more people. also like the joker.
