But when you take complete opposite things and try to make them work, you need some sort of compromise to make it look like they have a sort of connection.
These champs are suppose to be a team in Piltover for a while, after a point in time you start to develop some of the qualities of the people you're with, right?
So how doesn't it make sense that Cait has a bit of a rebellious side after she polishes her rifle?
Honestly, it seems to me like they wanted to make a Punk rockish girl champion, decided that they need to make someone from Piltover, and had them shooshed together as partners. These are people with 2 different personalities and backgrounds, but they really have no chemistry together, let alone be able to tolerate eachother and work together unless Cait has a bit of a grungy side, or Vi really is a tea-sipping lady.
