Lumekis, the Pride of the Griffons

Stats: Fighter, Melee, Tank

Attack Power: 7
Defense Power: 5
Magic Power: 2
Difficulty: 6

Appearance: Lumekis is a Griffin. She is six feet tall on all fours, and is about nine feet long, an extra foot and a half for the tail. She has a head very reminiscent of eagles in shape, though with perked lion’s ears, and she wears a sterling silver helmet with a spike in the center of her forehead. Her upper body is also very similar to eagles, with her forelegs being eagle talons, with silver claw coverings, and a sixteen foot wingspan, and her back end is very similar to a lions. She wears a much worn leather saddle on her back, as well a long set of armor from the back of her helmet to just before her tail.

Few, even the oldest of champions, can remember the Griffin Riders. Once dominators of Runeterra’s warfare, the Griffin riders where a small, proud fleet that all dreaded. Because of this, the once legendary Griffin’s have long been hunted the brink of extinction, with but a few dozens in hiding on Mount Targon. Of these Griffins, only Lumekis braved the human world, for she had heard tales of the human world, as the granddaughter of one of the last Griffin Riders. She travelled from city to city, trying to work a relation with their leaders to allow her people to reside under the protection. But in each city she would arrive, she was meant with persecution, disdain, and sometimes, even with violence.

Undeterred from her mission, to keep her people safe, Lumekis searched high and low for a people to give the Griffins solace. After almost a year of her traveling, Lumekis came upon Bilgewater City. Initially, things went as well for her there as they had in any other city. But as she left the city, she was taken captive by Pirates. Trying to train her, to tame her, to create a new Griffon Rider, they held her aboard their ship, keeping her on a tight tether to their ship for many months. Finally, Lumekis formed a plan. She acted tamed, let them outfit her in antique Rider armor, and when they first unshackled her, she ravaged the ship and its crew.

From there, Lumekis flew the skies of Bilgewater harbor, attacking any pirate ships in an uncontrollable rage for days on end. Eventually, the people of Bilgewater came to a consensus to give protection to the Griffon Kingdom, but it was already too late. Lumekis had vowed that no Bilgewater would pay for the crime it had committed over the years. Lumekis made a deal with Ionia, the protection of the Griffon People, in exchange for Lumekis representing them in the League, and more importantly, to speak out against Bilgewater and its lawlessness. More than willing to except these terms, Lumekis now fights in the League of Legends, with a determination that is near unmatched by any other.

Playing as Lumekis:

Lumekis’ two forms give her a Tank Moveset and a Fighter Moveset. Careful Mastery of Both can make you very versatile.

Using Griffon’s Resolve before switching into Eagle Mode can allow Lumekis much more sustainability while pushing lane.

Lumekis’ Fearless Dive can be used to pick off weakened enemies after a team fight, for a surprise engage at key points, or for a hasty retreat should things go bad.

Playing Against Lumekis:

Pay attention to Lumekis’ build early game, to tell if she’s focusing tank, fighter, or both, and plan your strategy accordingly.

Lumekis is easily outranged, keep her out of your face, and you can melt away her Lion Form.

Lumekis Bird of Prey is lethal too low health champions. Make sure you know her position when running low on health.
