How would Kha'zix view a champion that have also 'evolved' beyond their origins such as Rammus? Prey to be consumed or a specimen to be studied?

Also, any insight to what his life was like before crossing-over from the Void? Was he an infantile void creature or did his crossing-over diminish him from his previous form/might?

Kha'zix seems static and one-dimensional. Does he have other skills and interests besides being a devourer.

Does he give back anything meaningful to the Void community?

Or, is being an all consuming predator just his Void nature?

Kha'Zix himself mentions his "mission" is to devour strong prey and grow from it. Is there any chance that there's something in the Void that doled out said mission?

Follow up question, does he have anything to do with the "Daddy" Kog'Maw mentions in one of his emotes?

Thanks in advance!

Do you think Kha'Zix's character is any less compelling by virtue of his goal being unachievable within the League of Legends universe?

To clarify a bit: Kha'Zix wants to hunt down and eat Rengar. He's very cool. BUT, since they are both Champions, this is a literal impossibility. Even if it could happen off in the Plague Jungles somewhere, it could never happen, because they both need to remain characters in the video game. Essentially, the conflict between Kha'Zix and Rengar could reach an eventual end if the Lore wasn't tied to a video game such as this. But, since they both need to remain usable in the game, it can't.

Do you think this detracts from his appeal as a character?

I could ask the same of a few Champions. Rengar himself hunts Kha'Zix. Vayne wants to purge the League of evil magicians, but she faces the same impossibility, in that the characters in the game must remain open for use.

Do you think this futility negatively impacts any of these Champions? If so, what do you think could be done to mitigate it? If not, why not?

Was Kha'Zix originally concepted with evolution?

It seems to be a common theme at this time. (Rengar enhanced QWE, Syndra passive upgrade/evolve skill and now Kha'Zix evolution)

Also does Kha'Zix's launch skin have anything to do with the Glorious Evolution (viktor)?

Ah... I was really looking for that one, being a monster and Void fan.

First, some questions about the Void overall that I hope you can answer (started writin' a fanfic that revolves heavily around this place and its inhabitants, so I'd like to know if the stuff I have in mind is extremely far off your version ^^) :
-Are all the Voidborns so eager to destroy/eat/kill stuff, or are there other types of personalities for Voidborns ? Could there be, say, a Void creature that wanted to cross over into mortal worlds in order to study the mortal species instead of bringing their doom ?
-Can some of them know love or friendship ? (I'm pretty sure the answer would be "no" for the three we already know, hence why the question is more general and aimed at Voidborns we may not have seen/may never see)
-Can Malzahar and/or the Valoran Voidborns cross back into the Void at any time ? Using a ritual ? Or are they trapped forever once they "choose" a world ? (this is, assuming the League would let them go, since they're imprisoned at the moment)


As for Kha'Zix : what does he think about the other Voidborns in Runeterra ? Would he follow the Prophet's orders ? Or does he only care about hunting ? Does he consider Kog'Maw (another one who likes eating stuff) as a younger brother or something ?

Hey, a new-ish face! When did you join Creative, Faux? I feel like it was a while ago, but this is your first lore AMA.

Huh, that's a bit of a different take on the hunger of the Void. He seems to be a different creature from Kog'maw, although they're both "young."

What does the League think of the Void now? Was the previous view actually held by the League, or did Senior Summoner Farnsley have a reason to call the Void a lie?

It is somewhat fascinating how the elaborate lie that is this ‘Void’ manages to perpetuate regardless of its obvious falsity. In the same way that Malzahar’s ‘prophecies’ have gained him followers across Valoran, Kassadin himself has inspired a strange fervor in others to combat the Prophet’s growing ‘forces.’

Why not Qa'zix?

Seriously, massive missed opportunity there.

Did Kha'zix know Cho/Kog before he left the void?

Has Kha'Zix seen Kassadin's daughter in the void?

Does he prefer to be called Kha or Zix

Is there a method to Kha'Zix's hunting by now, or does he still ravenously consume indiscriminately?

His lore says that when he first arrived, he slaughtered and ate, risking life going for bigger and bigger prey. Now, with Rengar, he has a specific target to hunt down. Would he still kill to evolve on 'lesser' creatures, or would he only kill to sustain himself before moving on?
