So much effort was placed into things like Diana theme, Elise's connection with the Shadow Isles... It's a shame to see these efforts vanish with no trace with each update / revision. It would be nice if they could be referenced within the bio section of the PvP.net client for future players / players who really value the production quality / Lore / background if these wonderful characters.
Don't forget Nami's Connection to Diana and Leona
that got dropped like, immediatley after everyone got bored of looking for her hidden passive

I can't express with words how happy i am that you Rioters are finally digging deeper in the whole lore theme and how much i appreciate. However, is there a possibility that in the future there will be not only new lore about the newer characters, but some new lore or champions about old stuff, like for example Irelia's brother, Zelos?

Overhead, floating on wings as midnight-blue as the king's own royal seal, Val kept a razor-keen eye on the scene below. The only hint of his presence was the occasional cold gleam of a talon, reflecting the silver fire of the stars above. It was a new moon; Quinn had picked this night specifically, knowing that secrecy was of the utmost importance. A soft coo from above stopped her dead in her tracks, barely balancing on a branch -- something ahead gleamed in the same way as Val's talons, though even sharper and colder.

"Good evening, Talon," Quinn said, keeping her eyes directly on the gleam of The Blade's Shadow. If that gleam disappeared, she knew, she would need to be more than just light on her feet.

"Birdkeeper," replied the Noxian assassin, by way of greeting. "What exactly do you mean by asking me here? And why did you take such pains to contact me directly, instead of routing through Noxian High Command? Lord Darius will not be pleased if he learns that my...excursion...is common knowledge to Demacia."

The dancing patterns of starlight and shadow on the sharply-edged shape before Quinn's eyes were mesmerising, and it took a moment before she was able to respond. She mentally checked herself. Don't get distracted, not even for a moment. You're better than this.

"I...I asked you here to warn you. King Lightshield suspects you of a multiple homicide within my borders. I was ordered to both track and execute you, in no uncertain terms. I reviewed the crime scene, though. This isn't your style of Noxian diplomacy. It just isn't." Here she shook her head lightly. "This isn't the style of the Demacia I love. This isn't the honour I learnt. We know of your movements toward the Golden Crossing, so I--"

The deadly gleam before her disappeared. Her breath caught in her throat; her veins filled with a mix of ice and lightning; her muscles tightened, coiled, twitched. A shrill cry from Val overhead was barely audible over the thumping of her heart.

Where did he go?

"Only fools pledge life to honour," a voice whispered right behind her ear, and she felt the unfeeling tingle of steel press against her throat. She screwed her eyes tight.

Here it is.

The end.

"...but I respect your devotion. As you know, I never compromise. It seems you do not either." The blade at her throat moved away slightly. "Warning your land's most dangerous enemy of his impending capture? I won't thank you. But I will alter my course without betraying your foolish mistake, nor will I reveal this meeting to my superiors. But be warned..."

She heard the rustle of his cape in the darkness, the clink of his blades like a choir of wind chimes.

"Don't cross me."

wow! just wow!
this guy needs more upvotes!

I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but I'm genuinely curious:

Are we going to see these types of introductions for every champion later on down the line? It certainly helps build hype and besides being a bit of a lore-junkie, I think it definitely helps champions seem more unique than just "Oh hey, it's been 3 weeks, here's your new guy/gal".

Very cool lore, I'd like to make a wild assumption on is how Val will interact.
Based on the information provided, I surmise that Val can be micromanaged like Tibbers/Clones.
Instead of allowing the enemy team to kill him like most summons, can you have his "death" animation be a *dodge* into the air as he disappears into the sky and flies back to Quinn's side?

The whole summon pet/kill pet rinse repeat technique is archaic and given that he doesn't seem to be spiritual/magical like Elise's spiders, it would be more aesthetically pleasing.
