Long ago, Eliane Karnstein served in Demacia's military. Her fervent desire to "educate" the surrounding areas saw her becoming feared and respected among her peers, but her frequent killing of innocents prevented her from being promoted and constantly in danger of exile.
Her last skirmish found her in a tiny village, breaking into homes in search of "enemies of Demacia", when she was confronted by a witch. Enraged by her unrepentant slaughter, the witch cursed Karnstein to "walk the earth forever, hearing the howls of your victims with every step".
Terrified, Karnstein fled, and was assumed dead by her allies. For centuries, she travelled Runeterra, slowly going mad listening to the screams of the dead loud in her ears. Upon her recent return to Valoran, she joined the League of Legends in hope of finally silencing her mind.

Clothes: Wears a long, ragged coat with a hood as well as a bandana to hide her face (If necessary). Also wears a plain shirt, dark pants, black boots, all in decent condition.
Appearance: Medium length black hair with a white streak, Pale grey skin, pointed ears, glowing golden eyes with dark shadows underneath. Noticeable fangs and claws.

Skin Ideas:

Since Karnstein has had dead people screaming in her ear for God knows how long, she's not entirely sane. This is reflected in her slightly unhinged, anxious sounding voice.
[Selection] "Can you hear them too?"
"Let's make this quick."
"End them."
"This will be painless."
[On Ult]
"Do you hear them?!"
"I'm so sorry!"
"Yes, yes, I'm going."
"Oh, sorry, wasn't listening."
"Understood, Summoner."
[Joke] "Knock knock. Who's there? [looks up at summoner] No-one. You have no friends."
[Dance] The Charleston http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIQ23ZQ84Mg (0:30 to 0:40)
[Idle Animation] Converts empty hand into smoke and back, adjusts coat, examines sword.
[Death Animation] Drops her sword, covers her ears, and disappears in a cloud of black smoke.
