Champion #116 was born when RiotTeaTime posted a crazy sketch she drew on the wall. Everyone went bonkers and said, WE HAVE TO MAKE THIS. From that point, it took several months to put together a good pitch (she went through a number of revisions). Once we got permission to make her, of course, she spent some time in production.



I don't know about unexplored, but I would love to know more about Mt. Targon and the Void.
:O

Make it happen Ransom pls

How do you feel about Riven x Irelia? Some people believe it fits couple-wise and lorewise.
Great point. There's definitely an oversight here, and we do spend some time discussing same-*** relationships on the team - particularly Runaan. All I can say is we are always looking for ways to strengthen the world of our game. As for Riven x Irelia, I would need to know more about Irelia as a person in order to really believe it - as much as I like playing her, I feel she's a bit thin. And I'd love to take a shot at giving her more story someday.

We focus on 1) making the coolest stuff we can, and 2) pleasing as many of our players as possible, world-wide. Our goal is to make every region feel included and appreciated.

Champion #116 has no obvious ties to Vayne. As for the Night Hunter, I too am curious about whether she works alone or as part of a team, especially in light of the fact that Lucian has a very similar job and is also from Demacia. I honestly do not have the answers here. I just think it's interesting.

Now for some Rioter shoutouts!

It's all about the flash-ult. Watch them scatter!

It's definitely someone who sits on the other side of my cubicle wall, that's for sure.

Maybe I'm forgetting someone, but I don't think there's anyone else with purple hair. Ransom said it's the same color as one other champion :P. Purple would be sweet though. considering it's my favorite color.
EDIT: I can't believe I forgot about my dear Lulu! Maybe #116 does have purple hair then :O
