League of Legends fans have been gearing up for this day: Seraphine‘s abilities are official out, and they can finally play her on live servers come Patch 10.22. Players have anticipated he “Starry-Eyed Songstress” for months, and her social media posts have kept everyone at the edge of their seats. Riot dives deep into her bio, revealing much more than her abilities. Let’s take a look at this Piltover-born star.
Seraphine, raised by her Zaunite parents, had struggled all her life with hearing voices and songs. Eventually, these noises disrupted her everyday life, forcing her parents to purchase a shard of a rare hextech crystal to craft a device that dampened the voices. Over time, her ancestors had contacted her through a new set of voices, empowering her to pursue her life’s purpose: visit Zaun and bring unity to those struggling.
