According to Robolions:

"In the Shurima lore Xerath is the bad guy that betrays his emperor and tries to install himself as leader of Shurima. Not cool, let's get him!"

Why do you lie to us Runaan?

It's news that Xerath is the bad guy of the Shurima event? Who else would you call the bad guy, Amumu?

That would be a wonderful plot twist. Amumu, The Sad Megalomaniac.

He's a Rioter who posted in the Ascension (The game mode) AMA.

Personally I wouldn't put much stock in this as I doubt he's got any real connection to the lore guys.

Well, Xerath has always seemed a 'lil crazy. So it makes sense for him to be crazy.

I'm saving this quote, just for the future in case someone brings up Irelia is a lich because a QA Analyst said she is.

I'm of the opinion that JafarXerath is the new internal (Riot) take on the champ. Screw nuance and subtlety. Can't wait to read more stories where the characters are flattened into always right good guys and always terrible bad guys.

Knowing is half the battle! GIJOE!

Wasn't Jafar all about subtlety? If anything, Xerath might be more similar to Scar.

So was Scar though, up until he kills Mufasa, he's trying to make him believe he still loves him because he's his brother.

New Xerath reminds me more of that scene in Final Fantasy 6 where Kefka hijacks the magic power up beam from Emperor Gestahl.
