It's Quinn!
Or at least, a drawing of her and Valor. (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=613560&d=1360785378)

I posted this in another thread re: Quinn's visual design:

I look at Quinn's armor design and a part of me feels like Quinn isn't comfortable wearing all of this armor. She seems like she's stiff, a bit... overwhelmed even, by all of it. If that was intentional, then it's a damn good job by IronStylus and the Quinn team, because it reinforces her characterization (being elite and therefore forced to wear an outfit she might think is ridiculous or cumbersome).

And their Lore:

Quote:
Quinn and Valor

Quinn and Valor are an elite ranger team. With crossbow and claw, they undertake their nation's most dangerous missions deep within enemy territory, from swift reconnaissance to lethal strikes. The pair's unbreakable bond is deadly on the battlefield, leaving opponents blind and riddled with arrows long before they realize who they're fighting: not one, but two Demacian legends.

As a young girl, Quinn shared a hunger for adventure with her twin brother. They dreamed of becoming knights, but lived a quiet, humble life in the rural borderlands of Demacia. Together they imagined triumphant battles in faraway lands, seizing glory for their king and slaying foes in the name of Demacian justice. When daydreams alone could no longer satisfy their warriors souls, they embarked on daring wilderness adventures in search of true danger. One such quest turned to tragedy when a terrible accident claimed her brother's life. Overcome with grief, Quinn abandoned her dreams of knighthood.

On the anniversary of her loss, Quinn gathered the courage to return to the scene of the tragedy. To her surprise, she found a wounded Demacian eagle at the site of her brother's death - a rare and beautiful bird long believed extinct. Quinn nursed the fledgling back to health, and as they grew up together, a deep bond formed between the two. She saw the same quality in her newfound friend that had lived within her brother, and so she gave him the name ''Valor.'' The pair found strength in each other, and together they pursued the dream she had once abandoned.

The Demacian army had never seen heroes like Quinn and Valor. Their deadly skills quickly set them apart from their rank-and-file peers, but many still had their doubts. How could a common-born girl, even with such a powerful creature at her side, forego years of military training? Quinn and Valor proved themselves on one critical mission, tracking down a Noxian assassin who had evaded an entire Demacian battalion. When they brought him to justice, they finally earned the admiration and respect of their nation. The two now serve as living, fighting icons of Demacian strength and perseverance. Together, Quinn and Valor will stand against any threat to their beloved home.

Most soldiers only rely on their weapons. Few truly rely on each other.
Quinn

I've gotten a chance to play Quinn and Valor and can I just say... wow. Really impressed by everything about her in game. And her in-game model actually looks much more like a tracker than the drawing did - just because of the way things look in game, and it makes a _huge_ difference.

As for her gameplay:

Visually, Quinn is fairly impressive. Colorful, but muted. Her animations are smooth and her attacks are clear. Skills are extremely noticeable (as is her passive) - no visibility issues at all.

Kit: Harrier (passive) is basically a free Sunlight proc every 6 seconds, and on-demand with E. Getting hit by a Mark>AA>E>AA>Q combo is a surprising amount of burst and almost completely unavoidable (though if you have fast enough reflexes, Quinn is not untargetable while she E's, and Q is a skillshot you can avoid).

The combo of Mark>Q>AA>E>AA is also strong, offers 2 Harrier procs, and the blind on Q makes it hard to retaliate (which I guess is understandable - if it's harder to initiate, it should be more rewarding).
Quinn's ult is an amazing kill move, and Valor's AS and MS buffs make him even more bursty than Quinn. They do share a health pool, though, and Valor is melee only.

Expected Lane Synergy: Quinn can play safe, but I feel like a kill lane is right up her alley. A Leona support basically doubles the amount of procs you get in a combo, and the CC lockdown will probably guarantee a kill. Go with Janna for double bird synergy, there might even be a hidden passive there.

Overall: I'm not much of an ADC player, but Quinn is really fun to play and I feel like if I want to master any ADC, it should be her.

Well, once Quinn comes out at last, this thread will be able to slowly fade away.
