I mean, he's been slaying dragons for quite some time now. He should know better than anyone that "dragon" is absolutely the wrong title for her.
Wyvern. She's a frigging WYVERN. When will everyone get this?

To be totally honest, I think Riot's lore development team is overworked and understaffed and that this was really the best they could come up with given their timeframe and resources. When that happens it's really up to the community to repair it.

Well, it is said that Jarvan "strangely" knew exactly what she was and took her under his wing. This makes me think Jarvan met a Celestial Dragon before. My theory is that, during his journey, Jarvan slayed Shyvana's father during an epic battle. It's possible that he felt guilty about doing so, and is now watching over and training Shyvana to make up for it.

When Shyvana's Judgement does come out, I hope it addresses these things:

1. Her relationship with Jarvan. I'm thinking, since she's part of the Elite Guard, she acts as his bodyguard. She also may have secret feelings for him for saving her life and taking care of her.
2. The disaster that killed her family. I'm thinking she may have went off on an uncontrollable rage and accidentally killed them herself.
3. More into her motivations. She may have joined the League just to assist Jarvan, though I think there may be more to it than that.

Regarding Shyvana's bio itself, I agree it's a little generic, as we didn't learn all that much about the character herself. I also think they could have given her a better title as well. Something like "The Dragon's Fury" or "The Celestial Guard".

Right but we don't know for how long. The point being made here is that not counting Leblanc's impersonation of him Jarvan is still considered to have a ******bag personality.

******s don't usually do out of their way to help people.

IDEA-------------------------------

What if "Jarvan" didn't save her. What if Leblanc did. What if she's actually an agent for Leblanc?

Otherwise i'd atleast like to see Jarvan's reasoning of why he rescued her fleshed out more.

That's exactly what happened with Vayne.

She's a Batwoman, though.

Jarvan fights wild dragons. Shyvana just has dragon heritage, but she's not a wild animal.

He's going to raise up her up for sport. Then as soon as she gets big and strong he has a new dragon to slay for some nice shiny scales and skin.
