No, you're talking about Vayne who has been out for like a year now and is also a Demacian vigilante.

It means you can't assassinate people and do tricky political/stealthy work with a giant army, you need one skilled assassin.

PS I wonder if Vayne will play any part in this: She is a shadowy demacian assassin too.

Good old Demacian "Justice." Select a victi...er, suspect based on vague circumstantial evidence and send a brigade of shiny-armored children playing at soldier to go murder them.

This thread makes me want to start a custom game, load up Garen and just bask in his awesomeness.

I'm just saying the idea of a "rebel" is a bit more distinct when compared to Vi. She may be rebellious but that Starbuck style isn't the only kind of rebel there is

I mean, I like the idea of a rogue demacian agent, but these Riot posts make her sound like Vi's demacian cousin.
Vi is actually vastly different. She's forced to be lawful, but by nature she is chaotic neutral. Quin while also being on chaotic side (as is someone like shaco however), is chaotic good. That is to say: for Quin it wouldn't be about the means, it's about using the means to get to a desired Good end point.

Plus regardless of a story driven similarity (I would argue they are close together in lore, but not in play style. Versus Darius and Jayce who both dunk, but have different stories), if Quinn is the new ad carry, then she will feel very different which in the end is more important.

That's not to say a story isn't important, but you can only go so far until certain characters share multiple tropes, it is more the actual in use style and how they feel which will better define and separate them.

She's an anti assassin?

So is she also an anti anti mage?
