Quick question about Syndra's former master:

If he was so powerful that he was able to dampen her growing powers why does it seem like he was so easily bested by Syndra in the lore? He was slammed against the wall. Understandably fatal for an old timer, but its kinda anti-climatic.

Who was her mentor? Do we know any of his previous students or family? Will someone be coming to seek vengeance for his death?

As her magical power increases, what is the chance that it will start to put strain on her body?

As someone who feels betrayed mislead and somewhat abandoned probably what would be syndras motivation in putting trust in the league of legends to not bind her as did her former master.... ?

How old is she? Her model is actually pretty small, I'd think she's about the same age as Lux, no? I imagined her to be relatively young.

Why is every piece of lore lately seem to be

"AND THEN THEY JOINED THE LEAGUE OF LEGENDS. THE END."

whether it fits or not? Especially for someone whose major malfunction was BEING CONSTRAINED AND CONTROLLED. Why in the name of -insert your diety/belief/nonbelief here- would they join a League in which their every action and ability is CONTROLLED BY SOMEONE ELSE

we must wait in peace.... also since its a "ama" will there be attempts to flesh out the lore and expand the story beyond bio's ? all us lore lovers would probably play a heavy lore intensive game if you made one :O

Since Syndra is all about embracing and utilizing her full power in order to get revenge against the elders of Ionia would Syndra ally herself with Noxian leaders like Swain or Darius because the Noxian ideology of "only the strong will survive" seems to align itself well with Syndra's own beliefs of power or would she act alone in the belief that she could get revenge without any support?

Are there any champions that Syndra would ally herself with or that she is looking to defeat?

In what way is Syndra a sympathetic character, or intended to be a sympathetic character? That sounds like a loaded question (and I suppose it is to an extent, since her lore makes me think her a petulant child), but I suspect she wasn't intended to be just a monster. I ask because this is honestly the number one reason I'm not interested in playing her. Like, I play Singed, who is a monster, but he's got that "magnificent *******" thing going for him.

Why does Syndra's power materialize in the form of a sphere?

Is there a meaning to Syndra's headpiece? or is is just decoration?

What was Syndra doing during the Noxian invasin of Ionia?

Syndra's visual design of her model and abilities seems like it could fit the role of Kassadin's daughter, some people thought that's who she was going to be before she was revealed. Was she ever considered to be Kassadin's daughter at any point during her design?

As some people already said, what is Syndra's motivation for joining the league?

Would Syndra get along with anyone else in the League?
