Tessa looks like an older version of Annie, meaning if we assume Annie is around 5 or 6, then Tessa would be around 13 or 14 years old. She has jet black hair wavy hair that she wears completely down, and electric blue eyes that emit a very faint trail of magic (like Ryze's eyes but less apparent). She wears a dark/navy dress that resembles a sundress, and the dress has shimmering gold lightning patterns all over it. Her weapon is a crude-looking wooden wand in the shape of a lightning bolt with small, faint blue runes engraved all over the length of the wand. She wears simple leather sandals and has lightning shaped earring that are a bright gold.
Tessa is a Mage with a high capacity for burst damage, but also a great sustained damage as well. Her abilities can combo together in a variety of ways to increase either her own damage against a single target or her team's damage against their enemies.

Tessa never had the best childhood. For one, her parents weren't exactly the most protective pair that a child could have hoped for, along with the fact that as a baby she was dropped into a vat of chemicals in her parent's lab in her hometown of Zaun. After being dropped in the vat along with her twin sister Gemma, Tessa developed some rather startling powers after being left out to dry near an electrical coil in the lab.
As Tessa grew older, her affinity for everything electrical became very apparent, and somewhat annoying, as anyone she stood next to or touched would be mildly shocked, causing quite a problem once she hit those crucial teenage years. Not being a very popular child with her strange clothes and lightning-shaped stick that she carried around, the other children taunted her constantly, even her sister, who was fairly normal by Zaunite standards. Furious with her peers, Tessa began to study the arts of magic in hopes to control her powers, and she succeeded far more than anyone had expected.
Finding a teacher in Zaun wasn't too difficult, granted that the "wizard" could use her in his lab experiments, but needless to say Tessa was able to harness her power into incredibly dangerous, focused bursts of electricity gathered from the very air around her. She engraved runes into the branch she carried, making it both indestructible and causing it to act as an amplifyer for her powers. Tessa ventured out to the League of Legends to shame those who taunted her and prove to herself that she is in fact the mage she wants to be,
"Tessa's presence in the League is nothing short of... shocking..." - Ryze
