Born to an obscure family on the bronze-paved streets of Demacia, Zendella was discovered with a talent for magic quite by accident at an early age. Her habitual insistence on staring up towards the heavens was at first cause for alarm to her family and peers, but in truth the worst of her ailments was merely a sore neck. Zendella's unearthly connection to celestial bodies and unnatural perception toward the movements of the stars garnered the attention of Demacia's foremost soothsayers and magi.

Upon reaching adulthood, Zendella had honed her abilities and secured the office of Head Diviner, and proved to be the youngest person to do so in recent history. With her predictions and advice, a multitude of opportunities were presented - and a number of crises averted. Zendella's success earned her praise from the Demacian Royal Council, as well as the Royal Family, but also the hatred of Noxian agents.

Under cover of night, assassins of Noxus made an attempt on her life, believing that the removal of Zendella would weaken and shaken the Demacian government. Palace guards arrived on the scene within the Astronomy tower, only to discover Zendella's assailants defeated and covered in a mystical substance. When questioned, the cheerful girl's reply was that she simply "Had a little help from them," as she gestured toward the open roof, where the stars shined in the sky above.

As a former Summoner, Zendella served Demacia in the League of Legends. Though her tactics were sound and her effectiveness unquestioned, she witnessed first hand the horror and violence of open warfare, and vowed to bring about change by another means. As the fates would have it, she was approached by another summoner, Kurogano, and was presented with a formal invitation to the Abased.

As a champion of the Abased, Zendella believes she can make a real difference, and she continues to fight for their cause with all the fervor of a devoted scholar.

"Zendella always did have a knack for being one step ahead of her friends, and several steps ahead of her enemies. I daresay no surprises await the Abased with the former Head Diviner counted among the ranks."
-Unnamed Demacian Official

"You will be recycled into the universe!"

"Demacia and Noxus..? Talk about star-crossed lovers!"
"No, I'm not going to read you your horoscope."

Zendella holds her astrolabe in her right hand and attacks with her left by sending bright blue star-bolts at the enemy that burst into sparkles upon impact. On critical strikes, she thrusts her astrolabe skyward calling down a quick bolt of lightning that strikes the enemy.

Quickly turns into a bright light that shoots into the sky leaving behind her astrolabe and hat.

Movement Style
Graceful, feminine, brave.
