The 9 Champs from League of Legends

The following characters are from the League of Legends game itself.


Jinx

Who is it Jinx? The official League of Legenss lore states that Jinx used to be an innocent girl and a tinkerer with big ideas. In the meantime, however, the child has become a “crazy vandal”. You can experience what was one of the reasons for this in the Arcane series.


Up until now she has been called “Powder” there and is Vi’s younger sister. She is one of the main characters in the series and has a very tragic fate.


Her parents lost their lives in the first rebellion of the Zaun region against the wealthy residents of Piltover. Since then she has lived with Vi at Vander's.


She also works with a group of young people. But there it is often perceived as a “block on the leg”. Only Vi sticks to her, no matter what mishaps or problems happen to powder.

Jinx is rather shy and scared in the series. That will change later.

However, a tragic incident occurs in the series. Actually, Powder wanted to help her group and her foster father in a risky situation and detonated a kind of grenade full of magic, the so-called Arcane.


However, members of their group were killed in the explosion. Vi turns away from her sister disappointed and goes to the side, but when she saw that Silco and his gang were approaching Jinx, she immediately wanted to help her. At that moment, however, she was drugged and kidnapped by a Piltover enforcer.


Jinx didn't know that her sister wanted to rush to her and fell into the arms of the villain Silco. So she was accepted into his gang.


According to LoL-Lore, she used this to terrorize Zaun and Piltover later. It was particularly important to her that everyone involved realized that Jinx was responsible for this chaos.


Vi

Who is Vi Vi is the sister of Jinx. In terms of character, however, it is the exact opposite. She is loud, rebellious, and always ready to fight with others. But she is always worried about her sister Powder.

She now works with Caitlyn, the sheriff of Piltover. They are also lovers, as can be deduced from some interactions in the game.

However, he and Jayce fell out because Viktor wanted to go beyond limits Jayce didn't like.


Then, during Viktor's studies, a massive chem accident devastated large areas of Zaun. To clean them up, he designed a golem called Blitzcrank. However, another Academy member stole his job and claimed Blitzcrank for himself.


In addition, Viktor was expelled from the academy a little later when he developed a helmet with which one could take control of other people. Immersed in depression, he got rid of his human body parts and turned himself into the machine that you can play in LoL today.

9 key characters who aren't LoL champs

There are a number of characters in Arcane that are not featured in League of Legends - at least not yet. These key characters nonetheless play an important role in the plot of Arcane.


Vander

There is speculation that Vander could later become Warwick. After all, it absorbs the substance that, according to the lore, Warwick also created. In addition, his nicknames in the series and his general physique speak for it. At the end of episode 3, it's unclear whether Vander lives or dies.


Silco

Who is Silco? Silco led a rebellion against Piltover, but was almost killed by Vander in the process. Apparently Silco wanted to go too far and Vander was forced to turn him off first.


Several times in the series there is a review of the scene in which Vander tried to drown Silco. Silco accuses his former friend of neglecting his duty. Although Silco did not die in Vander's attack, his eye was mutilated.


Since this action, Silco has sworn revenge on his former friend and works with Singed on this. He developed the Shimmer, which changed Deckard and later also Vander.

Silco is the antagonist of the first episodes and tries to gain control of the underground.
