Parrot you missed a "t"

Also, is the sign on the rock of the fourth picture a random one or does it hold any meaning?

Yes. He is Quinn's trained bird and companion.

So Val is a hawk that "scouts ahead". Sounds a lot like Ashe's hawk shot. But I guess this one is a smaller area but on the other hand reveals stealthed opponents?

Also, there is a knife. So a backstab ability comes to mind. Although, it is difficult to do a backstab without stealth. So this new champ is a stealthy assassin with a stealth-reveal ability?

We're gonna need another thread at this rate.

Probably been noticed before but "val" short for Valor.

  • The reason that the assassin doesn't match Talon's profile is because the assassin is Caleb
  • The alarm was raised and a sloppy job was done because Caleb wanted Quinn to be put onto his trail. "Target headed towards Golden Crossing (too obvious)" is indicative that Quinn knows her brother is alive.
  • "Prince Jarvan needs to know." She has to tell him the true story of her brother.
  • Her knowledge of the paths and trails shows that the only other person who could know these trails would be her brother, with whom she explored often.
  • She now has to deal with a serious decision -- does she kill her brother, and "avenge" the Caleb of the past who believed in Justice and Honour? Or does she let him escape and surrender herself to shoulder the responsibility for his crimes?

TL;DR -- The assassin is Caleb, Quinn's still living brother, and she has to decide whether to bring him to justice or not. This conflict with Justice is what sets her apart from other Demacians.
Your speculation is intriguing, perhaps this will be another story based champion release and Caleb will also enter SR...the plot thickens
