Dear Akali,

I have two questions for you. The first: do you wear your mask to disguise your identity or is it just part of your generic ninja outfit? Because it doesn't seem to be terribly effective when in at least one of your alternate costumes you're not wearing the mask at all, and in others it's so snug that your facial features can be distinguished through it.

That brings me to my second question: Is Akali your given name or is that your ninja alias?

Dear Akali

Would you teach me how to use essence of shadow charges? I understand you use them for your shadow dance ability an I'd like to learn it so I could use it on my spirit rush...

Are you implying that my combat abilities could be made more effective? I don't need ten weapons to kill someone. That would just be messy.

It's really more of a uniform than anything. Shen and Kennen seem to prefer concealing their identity, though.

My name is Akali. We don't have "ninja names" or whatever.

I doubt it. The shadow dance technique was taught to me by my mother - even I don't fully understand it.

Dear Akali,

How do you prefer to commit a kill? Your preferred weapons (kama) are wonderful for hacking and throat cutting, but useless for stabbing. They also seem to be much larger than similar weapons; almost like axes. Is this a personal preference because you like having some weight behind your blows, or were you given those kama and just got use to their feel?

Ah, hello, Akali.

I've heard stories of you being able to chop through a chain with your bare hands. Though Tryndamere and Riven can use swords of amazing size, I've yet to see a human prove strong enough to do something like that. Are the stories true?

What would you and your comrades do if the League were to try and enforce an action that didn't follow with your idea of 'preserving the balance'? How deep is your commitment to this organization, basically?

Also, do you feel any special loyalty to Ionia for being your base of operations? Or do you treat it as impartially as any other city state?

Akali,

About time you show up, you could be a little slower. Don't expose too much information to them.

They were given to me by my mother. I use them because hacking and throat cutting is exactly what I need to do.

They are true, but I don't often use my hands in combat.

I don't expect such a sudden change in ideals from the Institute, but I suppose that we would leave the League if we feel that staying is no longer beneficial to us.

"Base of operations?" Ionia is our home.

Oh, please. I've already been questioned about breakfast and romance. What are you worried about?

So breakfast and romance weren't invasive enough questions?

... Darn. I don't know what better to ask. Someone ask Akali a horribly vicious and personal question.

Not more effective. Just more... efficient. It just seems that it's harder to be really up close in combat with those things, as opposed to a dagger.
