Hello fellow Summoners -

Based on yesterday's announcement of her impending arrival; do you guys have any predictions regarding Sona's involvement with the League? It's not everyday that a musician becomes involved with politics or vies for power / influence. Perhaps she was asked to participate?

What do you guys speculate?

Well, considering she's mute I definitely think she didn't voice her interest by herself (pun intended )

Other than that, she's Demacian, so probably they had her participate to soothe their other champions or something, I guess.

Lore:

Sona has no memory of her true parents. As an infant, she was found abandoned on the doorstep of an Ionian adoption house, nestled atop an ancient instrument in an exquisite case of unknown origins. She was an unusually well-behaved child, always quiet and content. Her caretakers were sure she would find a home quickly, but it soon became apparent that what they mistook for uncommon geniality was actually an inability to speak or to produce any sound whatsoever. Sona remained at the adoption house until her teens, watching in hopeless silence as prospective adopters passed her by. During this time, the caretakers sold her unusual instrument to anxious collectors, hoping to build her a trust. For a myriad of bizarre and unexpected reasons, however, it would be returned, or simply appear again outside the house.

When a wealthy Demacian woman named Lestara Buvelle learned of the instrument, she immediately embarked to Ionia. When the caretakers showcased the instrument for her, she rose wordlessly and explored the house, stopping outside Sona’s room. Without hesitation, Lestara adopted her and left a generous donation for the instrument. With Lestara’s guidance, Sona discovered a deep connection with the instrument which Lestara called an “etwahl.” In her hands, it played tones which stilled or quivered the hearts of those around her. Within months, she was headlining with the mysterious etwahl for sold-out audiences. She played as though plucking heartstrings, effortlessly manipulating the emotions of her listeners - all without a single written note. In secret, she discovered a potent and deadly use for her etwahl, using its vibrations to slice objects from a distance. She honed this discipline in private, mastering her gift. When she felt prepared, she went to the only place which could offer her a fitting recital: the League of Legends.

“Her melody moves the soul, her silence sunders the body.” -Jericho Swain, after attending her concert



I guess we can still use this post to discuss

So she's Ionian by birth, but partially raised in Demacia? I'd only imagine perhaps the reason she'd enter the League is to help fight in the interests of both her homelands.

Maybe it could have been simple as to hone her hidden skills with her etwahl; but there could be another motive. I guess only time will tell.

That's right...

What'll her voice set be? O.o creepy chimes on her instrument, perhaps?

I do have to say, though, I'm looking forward to trying her out - an interesting champion in all degrees (though, her lore is *slightly* cliche - how many champions in the league are orphans? O.o) plus, unlike other female champions in the league, she seems to have realistic proportions and modest clothing... (If you get your jollies from pixels, that's fine, if not slightly disturbing... Not my thing, though.)
