Could the paths be Quinn and Val's paths? Maybe she had Val fly a similar path but slightly divergent, to scout other areas? Maybe Val was following Talon, and the mark points were rendezvous points for her and Quinn?

Copy Pasta from the other thread xD Doesn't really matter since I'm only one of a few opinions but I'd still like to get my ideas out there =3

The "Put your ear to the ground. Point your gaze to the sky." Leads me to think that Quinn might be some sort of tracker who specializes in hunting down and capturing criminals. The "put your ear to the ground" is sort of like how trackers have to know the terrain and see the clues left behind, "or hear them" while the gaze to the sky would be a reference to her bird companion.

Stylus constantly referring to "eagle eye" (sharp vision, predatorial bird, perhaps directly alluding to an eagle), "pfft ravens" (implying this bird scoffs at the idea of a raven, easily takes one down), "swain's bird needs to meet its match" (what's the opposite of a raven? enemy of a raven?), etc. leads me to think that this new bird will be more of a predator/hunter (like an eagle, falcon, or hawks)

http://www.angelfire.com/id/ravenskn...crowfacts.html
" Probably all birds that are predatory in nature are enemies to crows and ravens. These include eagles, hawks and falcons, but it is the owl that is of the highest concern."

This predator idea fits in with the tracker persona where Quinn would utilize the vantage point of Valor to better track and hunt down the prey.

"Exactly. You'll never see it coming." Makes me think of maybe an ability that allows her to sneak up on enemies? Maybe like Rengar's vision while in ult? If you're a good tracker, you'd have to sneakily follow your target until you're sure you can apprehend it, right? Maybe it refers to an aerial bird attack of sorts too since champions don't really look up xD

"Deception? That's the way of traitors and fiends. There is no justice to be found in trickery." Maybe alluding to the ability to see invisible units? She could potentially have a passive that lets her see stealthed units because of the "Eagle Eye" from Valor. Invisibility and stealth let's you trick opponents (think wu kong or shaco) but with a good look out from above and this sentence, she could potentially counter invisibility somehow.


tl;dr - I think Quinn is a tracker who excels in finding and capturing opponents. Valor, her eagle/falcon/hawk/other bird of prey partner, may grant her some sort of vision of nearby surroundings or offer offensive assistance or even somehow reveal stealth units.

I'm really looking forward to this champion and it may be the first champ I buy on release

Edit: ["WHAT?! I'm making observations of clever people making rampant but interesting postulations! Is that a crime?!"] You know who else observes clever people? Trackers =T Crime refers to her sense of justice =T
And her backstory just keeps getting bettterrr, these new journal releases, what happened with Caleb? Did he get killed by an assassin like Talon thus fueling her drive for justice? Maybe Valor has the spirit of Caleb ;-;

@Ranigad, IronStylus also mentioned "ruthless killer birds with an affinity for women in armor", which would fit the predatory bird idea and also imply that Val might be more integral to the damage part of Quinn's kit.

Why are a few people posting that Quinn has a relation with Talon?

The assassin they're looking for is NOT TALON *Cough* it's probably an unknown new champion or the Black Rose and it's dirty tricks (Even though Katarina and Talon pubstomped them).

If you look at the page it says it, and you can even infer it.

Talon isn't a *Jump into a random group of guards and kill them all* type of person. He servers Du Couteau and wouldn't do something like this unless he was under orders.

Considering the Du Couteau family just saved Jarvan and helped put an end to the insanity that was Demacia Vs Noxus I don't think he'd quickly turn around and betray Demacia.

Secondly, why would Talon attempt an assassination on the king himself? There is no reason for Talon to want to do something, not to mention as sloppily as it was described.

This is a new assassin, probably not even from Noxus, but some rogue person who's trying to stir up attention to create more strife and make a name for themselves.

Unfortunately Quinn has seen through the framing of Talon, though she is unable to budge Garen or Jarvan's targetting of Talon.

Should be interesting
