Here's the still image from the animation, which is a slight variation on the Kindred splash:

Kindred Updates  - In-client lore, more non-English VOs

Few more Kindred related bits in today's update, including a short lore entry and more non-English VO!

Kindred's short form in-client lore entry has been added:
''Tell me again, little Lamb, which things are ours to take?'' 
"All things, Dear Wolf.''
Separate, but never parted, Kindred represents the twin essences of death. Lamb's arrow offers a swift release for those who accept their fate. Wolf hunts down those who run from their end, delivering violent finality within his crushing jaws. Though interpretations of Kindred's nature vary across Runeterra, every mortal must choose the true face of their death."

Few more Kindred non-English Voiceovers have been added:

Lore Changes

Miss Fortune's short form in-client lore entry has been updated to reflect her lore post Bilgewater. This text comes from the first paragraph of  Miss Fortune's champion page entry.
''The bigger the risk, the bigger the bounty.'' 
Beauty and danger: There are few who can match Miss Fortune in either. One of Bilgewater's most infamous bounty hunters, she built her legend upon a swathe of bullet-riddled corpses and captured ne'er-do-wells. The booming echoes of her twin pistols in the port city's reeking wharfs and scavenger shanties are sure signs of another warrant from the Bounty Board being settled.

Fiora's in-client lore entry has also been updated, varying slightly from her current entry:
"I have come to kill you for the sake of honor. And though you possess none, still you die.''

The most feared duelist in all Valoran, Fiora is as renowned for her brusque manner and cunning mind as she is for the speed of her bluesteel rapier. Born to House Laurent in the kingdom of Demacia, Fiora took control of the family from her father in the wake of a scandal that nearly destroyed them. House Laurent's reputation was sundered, but Fiora bends her every effort to restore her family's honor and return them to their rightful place among the great and good of Demacia.

Fiora's title is now "Mistress of the Blade" rather than "the Grand Duelist". **
