Star Guardian Akali

1820 RP
"On-again off-again co-captain of a new generation of Star Guardians, Akali's skill in battle is shadowed by her growing realization that the Oath she swore has condemned her to die. Though she fights for the light with all her heart, she finds that darkness is just as powerful... perhaps, even more so..."

Star Nemesis Morgana

x RP
"A villainess of mysterious origins, Morgana believes that concepts like justice and order are holding the universe back... and she's willing to do anything to return it to a state of entropy.

Star Guardian Rell

x RP
"Hailing from a sister city along with Quinn, Rell is a deliquent loner who does what she wants, when she wants, and avoids making friends by pushing everyone away. In battle she rides atop her mighty steed Sebastien, her simmering rage transforming her into a starlit knight who defends the meek from harm."

Star Guardian Syndra Prestige Edition

Event Tokens
"A vision in silk and shadow, Syndra doesn't need hordes of adoring fans (though she has them) nor hundreds of eager ateliers desperate to design for her (though she has those, too), because she is always at the center of her own orbit. Her secret? Starlight never goes out of style."

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Star Guardian Syndra Prestige Edition:
"People fear what they cannot understand."

Prestige Star Guardian Syndra comes with: 
  • New models and textures!

Riot DW Platypus"

 

Star Guardian Taliyah

1350 RP
"A rowdy, boisterous fighter by night and a somewhat reserved first year student by day, Taliyah's missions with the Star Guardians are a chance for her to discover the kind of person she wants to become. Surfing across the city on a giant wave of starlight, she's okay with taking her time."


Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Star Guardian Taliyah:
"The earth calls, and I must answer."

Star Guardian Taliyah comes with: 
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
