I decided to have a crack at a water-based champion. We have Nami as a support and Fizz for mid already, so I decided to try and create a jungler. Keeping with Riot's recent naming pattern (Nami is wave in Japanese), I present to you Kiri, the Assassin of the Mist. Kiri utilizes stealth, speed, vision impairment and dashes to stick to targets and destroy them quickly. Kiri's melee based, by the way.

Assassin, Melee

Base Stats:
Health: 450 (+85)
Mana: 300 (+50)
Attack damage: 50 (+4)
Attack speed: 0.655 (+3.1%)
Range: 125
Armor: 18 (+4)
Magic Resistance: 37
Health regen: 9 (+1.5)
Mana regen: 7 (+1.25)
Movement Speed: 325

Silent Killing (Passive)
Kiri's basic attacks deal additional magic damage and silence the target for 0.75/1/1.25 seconds. This effect cannot trigger on the same target more than once every 13 seconds.

Magic damage: 25/65/95 (+30% AP)

Water Spider (Q)
Kiri gains movement speed and deals continuous magic damage to surrounding enemies for 4 seconds. This damage can be increased to targets if Kiri attacks them.

Movement speed: 15%/20%/25%/30%/35%
Magic damage per second: 30/55/80/105/130 (+40% AP)
Cooldown: 9/8/7/6/5 seconds
Mana cost: 40/45/50/55/60
Mechanics explanation: When Kiri attacks with a basic attack and Water Spider is active, the target will gain one stack of Drowning. Each stack of Drowning increases the damage taken by Water Gauntlet by 8%. Drowning stacks up to 3 times and lasts for 4 seconds.

Hidden Door (W)
Kiri becomes invisible for 3 seconds. Kiri can reactivate this ability to dash to an enemy unit, dealing magic damage.

Dash range: 650
Magic damage: 60/100/140/180/220 (+80% AP)
Cooldown: 22/20/18/16/14 seconds
Mana cost: 40/45/50/55/60

Brine (E)
Kiri shoots a thin stream of salty water in a straight line, slowing and dealing damage to the first enemy hit. Kiri's attack speed against the affected target is increased.
Range: 800
Magic damage:100/140/180/220/280 (+80% AP)
Attack speed increase:
Cooldown: 10 seconds
Mana cost: 55/60/65/70/75

Saizō's Secret Mist (R)
Kiri covers a large area with a blanket of mist for 8 seconds. Enemies inside the mist have their vision range reduced and are slowed.
Target range: 1000
Diameter of target AOE: 1200
Vision range in mist: 500
Slow: 15/25/35%
Cooldown: 110/90/70 seconds
Mana cost: 80/90/100

nautilus is sad

the skill set seems ok, the ratios of the 3 base skill might be a little high. assuming you only get 1 second of water spider on your opponent, the full combo, including the passive, has a 2.3 ap ratio, which is quite alot. if you hit them with the whole water spider, it jumps up to a 3.5 ap ratio, not accounting for the bonus damage from drowning stacks.

this champ might be ok in the jungle, but would be similar to Diana, where Kiri would be better played in mid. she would be a little similar to evelyn mid, except she has substantially higher burst, a silence (which is really strong in mid lane), instant invisibility and a gap closer. this could be problematic.

i really like the ultimate.

you should add some lore and appearance of the Kiri if you have thought those up.
