There’s always an amount of excitement built up as we wait for new champions in League of Legends, and now Riot has given us a sneak peek into the mind of Quinn, the newest representative of Demacia. Senior Concept Artist IronStylus put up a forum post which included a couple of images which give a unique look into how Quinn sees others around her. The post also includes a bit of story.
“They are the legions of blue and gold. They are the beacons of justice. They bear the standard. They lead the charge.
Demacia has always stood a stalwart sentinel against darkness and evil, but the nation faces a world of new and terrible threats. They wield the sword and spear, marching against their foes in mighty numbers, but can an army catch an assassin? Can numbers alone hold back spells woven in shadow and flame? With such vicious forces bearing down upon her doorstep, how will Demacia endure?
The answer is simple: a new champion approaches.
She is a new kind of hero, one of new mind and new method. One who can go where armies cannot reach, where swords cannot clash.
This is her story. Her worth will be tested, her ways will be questioned, but she will forge ahead. Honor guides her path. Justice steadies her aim. Valor is the only ally she needs.”
Several other League of Legends team members follow up in the thread with more RP postings about Quinn and the world that LoL lore takes place in, including Associate Creative Designer RiotRunaan, who posted the following:
“Demacian justice does not cower in the face of growing darkness. Demacian justice does not bow its head to the tyranny of cruel nations. Demacian justice does not flinch when challenged by overwhelming odds and forces unimaginable.
No—as evil casts it shadow over Valoran, Demacian justice rises above it. Embracing the new and the old, with vigilance and honor, Demacian justice takes wing.”
There are quite a few more posts from Rioters in the thread, and it’s quite a fun read so I recommend you check it out. This is our first tease regarding the newest Champion coming to League of Legends, and we will definitely start getting more information on Quinn in the near future.
