Miscellaneous 

  • Skin bios were added:
    • Hextech Kassadin: "Engrossed in his work to the point of near-obsession, Kassadin vanished for some time into the bowels of his labyrinthian workshop, disappearing from public life for years. When he emerged, he revealed a shocking hextech innovation to the world: his own body, fully integrated with the technology he so loved."
    • Odyssey Aatrox: "Aatrox is a violent and notorious crime lord whose name is feared throughout the criminal underworld. He is also disfigured by Ora abuse. Seeking to purge the substance from his body, he abducts Templars to extract it... and kills them when they are unable to do so. He has seized a number of high ranking Templar priests in order to draw out Karma, who he believes will finally heal him."
    • Odyssey Karma: "A High Priestess of the Templar Order, Karma has hired a group of offworld mercenaries to free a number of captured templars from the grip of Aatrox, an infamous and powerful crime lord. She has taken a more interventionist stance towards the rest of the universe following the loss and transformation of her former lover, Zed."
    • Odyssey Twisted Fate: "A space smuggler erroneously known for discretion, as well as his impractically famous ship, The Wildcard, Twisted Fate was hired by Karma to free some templars from some space pirates. He has only just begun to notice that the other mercs on the job are better known for wetwork than simple heists..."
    • Odyssey Sivir: "Sivir runs her own small bounty hunting operation on the fringes of the galaxy. She's self-made and tough, having lost her parents to the Demaxian empire many years prior, but holds on to her soft and sympathetic side despite that hardened exterior. Sivir was hired by Karma, along with the other mercs, to free the captured templars."
    • Odyssey Kha'Zix: "A member of an elite bounty hunting organization, Kha'zix is cold, ruthless and always gets the job done. Though hired by Karma to track down the missing templars, she doesn't realize that Kha'zix is a double agent secretly working for Aatrox to bring Karma to him."
