I'm really excited to see more about her. As someone who adores the lore in this game, this approach of introducing her makes me so happy!

For the team who worked on her, great job!

I've said this a million times, but I'll make the suggestion again. Animated videos introducing champions and their back-story is a much more fulfilling route to take. Lore the way it is now is quite limited, this is a PVP game, and telling a story is not the main focus. However, a short video having the character tell the player what they're all about would be very interesting. Imagine Elise's monologue only with stuff happening in the background.

I think Val is most likely a Falcon. Unless Riot is making up species of birds on it's own, the wings of Val's sketch seem to indicate it's a Falcon, not a Hawk.

Search "Falcon" and "Hawk" separately on Google pics, and you'll notice that Falcon wingtip feathers don't spread out like a Hawk's do. Val's wingtips don't spread either.

Val could always be another type of bird, but I am not really aware of any other type of large predatory bird besides eagle, but their heads are too big to match the sketch in the reveal pic.

Then, of course, there's always the chance Riot will just make the bird whatever they want, and not model it after a real life bird family.

We might be all wrong here. Val might not be a bird! He might be a Miniature Giant Space Hamster!

"Go for eyes, Val! Go for the eyes!"

All of this lore is twisting me in a knot. I'm so excited for every bit of news I get.

The assassin she is hunting isn't Talon, instead it's an assassin from Zaun tied to the death of her brother who will be released next after Quinn (similar to Rengar/Darius and Khazix/Draven).

What do I win?
This sounds about right.

So, let me get this straight: You are remaking Vayne and giving her a hawk and (probably) a more strong early game. Riot, why are you trying to replace my favorite champion?
