What real world are you speaking of? present-day, where one nation has the bulk of the military power and weapons that can wipe away all life on the planet's surface, thus forcing military cooperation from the various major military powers, forcing war to be waged by information, terrorism, and economic / financial attacks?
Would you like to take a guess at how life was here on Earth hundreds to thousands of years ago? How much killing and brutality do you think there really was in reality? For that matter, how much killing and brutality do you think happens in the middle east and certain areas of africa, present-day?
You're confusing "living on earth" with "living in present day, in america"
If they were living in america or england or another "socially" developed country, they'd be locked in a mental health institute. But put them in certain areas of the middle east or africa, governments will happily let them kill random people if they deem their services valuable enough. Merciless bloodshed happens all the time "in reality", it's just penalized in the area you -happen- to -coincidentially- live in. There are some much more vile, sadistic men in the world we live in than the champions displayed by the league of legends.
In certain countries of the world, they'd be viewed as in need of mental healthcare. In other countries of the world, they'd be viewed as any ordinary person who has a need that needs satisfying, just like eating or drinking, and their skills / services are well worth the costs, so it's not a big deal.
I'm familiar with some of the darker aspects of the world we live in, and to be perfectly honest, if Katarina were suddenly here on earth, I would happily go on a few dates with her and get to know her better and see if a relationship sprouted. That's not something that intimidates me.
I might even be friends with Vladimir. Vladimir's lore even shows him as a guy who feels a need to kill and went out of his way to find a more socially acceptable method of keeping his need in check. According to the worldwide average and standards of the "real world" we live in, (not just the standards of these select few "socially developed" nations) that makes him a rock-solid good fellow. Maybe I'd point him in the direction of people who were otherwise sentenced to execution so he doesn't have to kill anyone who's innocent.
Picture it, me sitting with Vladimir, Katarina, Morgana, all going on a double-date (me with Kat, Vlad with Morg, I think they'd make a cute couple with all their vampiric needs).
Got it pictured? Now picture us sitting in a living room playing Monopoly. Or playing Risk. Yup, picture a boardgame.
Now picture Morgana setting up the monopoly money for us, not being able to find that last ten she needs for a fair stack, and angrily incinerating one of the decks.
Morgana: WHERE IS THAT TEN!! I KNOW IT'S HERE SOMEWHERE!
Belthazor: Did you check under the-
Morgana: IT'S NOT THERE!
Belthazor: Do you want to just play risk instead?
Morgana: NO!! WE'RE GOING TO PLAY MONOPOLY RIGHT AFTER I FIND ENOUGH MONEY TO START US ALL AT 500 DOLLARS!
Belthazor: But, you are the one who voted to play risk, all three of us voted for monopoly. You don't even like monopoly.
Morgana: IT'S A MATTER OF PRINCIPLE NOW!
Vladimir: Excuse her, she was baking earlier and burnt her cookies. She hasn't had any chocolate today.
Morgana: SHUT UP VLADIMIR!
Katarina: It's okay, just be patient guys.
Vladimir: Ok, I need a drink.
Belthazor: I picked up some blood packs from the hospital for you earlier. They're in the fridge, top shelf.
Vladimir: <goes to the kitchen>
Vladimir <yelling> Want anything?
Belthazor: Chocolate milk!
Morgana: <breaks a lamp>
Morgana: WHERE IS IT!?! WHERE!?!
Belthazor: <yelling to Vladimir> ...make it a beer for me instead.
Katarina: It's got to be around here somewhere, Morgana.
Katarina: <smiles at Belthazor, holding the ten behind her back, looking innocent>
Belthazor: <glares at Katarina>
Katarina: <frowns at Belthazor>
Belthazor: <folds his arms>
Katarina: <innocently stands up and walks across the room>
Katarina: Did you check under the sofa?
Morgana: What? No.. but why..
Morgana: <discovers the ten under the sofa>
Morgana: HAH! I FOUND IT!! I FOUND IT!! We can play now..
Vladimir: <comes back into the room with beer in one hand, and a blood pack with a bendy-straw in it in the other hand>
Vladimir: Okay. So the pieces. I want the puppy. I always get the puppy!
Morgana: NO!! IT'S MINE!!
Vladimir: But you don't even like the puppy...
Vladimir: <sad face>
