Miscellaneous 

  • Skin bios added this cycle:
    • Sherwood Forest Ashe
      • Condemned as a rogue and a thief, Ashe is nonetheless a leader of the free peoples of Albion, protecting the weak and the powerless from oppression in any form. Hundreds of bounty hunters have scoured the woods to find her, but they always come back with empty hands... and emptier pockets.
    • Viridian Kayle
      • Forest Elves are long lived compared to the humans they live among, and many delve into centuries-long explorations for even a scrap of their empires' lost magic. Those who find it, such as Kayle, are gifted with incredible powers over the natural world.
    • Transcended Kayle
      • Having cast aside her humanity, Kayle has transcended and fully assumed her mother's mantle as the divine Aspect of Justice. She is aware of her mortal origins, but views it as something distant that she left behind very long ago.
    • Battleborn Kayle
      • Kayle is a benevolent goddess in times of peace, and a terrifying battle spirit in times of war. She wears the traditional warpaint of her people as a living record of their victories and power.
    • Judgment Kayle
      • Those poor souls accused of crimes are brought before the all-seeing entity Kayle, where their deeds are judged with cold dispassion. Few are absolved, and fewer still escape their sentence.
    • Aether Wing Kayle
      • Authorized pilot of the X07-Gevurah combat exosuit, Kayle is a justicar of the Royal Space Military operating deep in the heart of lawless space. Though her mission is to uphold the fragile postwar peace, years of violent conflict have radicalized her-- now she acts as heartless judge, jury, and executioner for anyone or anything that falls beneath her gaze.
    • K/DA Ahri Prestige Edition
      • Decked out to dazzle, K/DA Ahri charms her audience in a glittering, golden ensemble specially made for her band's Pop Shine Awards performance. Her Prestige Edition outfit celebrates the golden success of POP/STARS. Can you feel the rush now?
    • Exiled Morgana
      • A battle spirit exiled from her tribe in a past age, Morgana has silently plotted revenge on her betrayers and their descendants for hundreds of years. Each passing winter she comes closer to her goal-- a climactic battle in which the tribe falls, and Kayle with it.
    • Blade Mistress Morgana
      • Morgana is a deadly combatant and former pilot of the X09-Xibalba combat exosuit, as well as one of the last half-aliens alive in the galaxy. She has surgically hidden her suit's forbidden, lost technologies beneath her skin\u2014her goal being to evade her sister, the mad military justicar, Kayle.
    • Blackthorn Morgana
      • The Dark Forest Elves are the shattered remnants of the great elven empires, jealously guarding evil power that some once considered the cornerstone of their magical supremacy. Morgana has hidden this magic deep within her body, chaining it to her soul so that only she might wield it.
    • Arclight Brand
      • In the early days of civilization, Vel'Koz chose a man named Kegan Rodhe to take up the mantle of the first Arclight, gifting him with vast divine powers. But millenia have passed since then, and though Rodhe is gone, his body is still animated by the light, filled with nothing but pain and rage.
