Patch 9.3 Notes: Lore Edition

By Riot Ashekandi

Annie: Trouble

Annie, Tibbers, Runeterra

“There’s one thing you should remember about little Annie: she’s never alone. Isn’t that right, Tibbers?”

Katarina: Message on a Blade’s Edge

Katarina, Swain, Noxus

An assassin’s blades are but one of her weapons. Know your mark. Know the killing ground. Anything can be a tool to secure the kill.”

Master Yi: Homecoming

Master Yi, Ionia

“Returning once more to his home, Master Yi faces his past and prepares for what the future will bring.”

Udyr: Updated Bio

Udyr, Lee Sin, Freljord, Ionia

Udyr is more than a man—he is a vessel for the untamed power of primal Freljordian animal spirits.”
With this updated bio, we’ve given Udyr a backstory. He was born in unique conditions, destined to become a great spirit walker—but his swelling powers soon led to chaos as he was crippled by his own gift. We’ve also made a small change to the relationship between Udyr and Lee Sin, which will lead Udyr to a better understanding of his gifts through Ionia’s close connection to the spirit realm.

Sejuani: Updated Bio

Sejuani, Ashe, Grena, Freljord

“Sejuani is the brutal, unforgiving Warmother of the Winter’s Claw, one of the most feared tribes of the Freljord. Her people’s survival is a constant, desperate battle against the elements, forcing them to raid Noxians, Demacians, and Avarosans alike to survive the harsh winters.”
The circumstances of Sejuani’s upbringing are the highlights of her new bio. Through this, you can see why Sejuani feels that only she is worthy of ruling the Freljord. With the recent release of Ashe: Warmother, we’ve also been able to use this as an opportunity to highlight relationships that were expanded on in that medium, as well as rightfully name Sejuani as Warmother of the Winter’s Claw.

Jarvan IV: Updated Bio

Jarvan IV, Garen, Shyvana, Xin Zhao, Demacia

“Prince Jarvan is heir apparent to the throne of Demacia. Raised to be a paragon of his nation’s greatest virtues, he is forced to balance the heavy expectations placed upon him with his own desire to prove himself on the battlefield.”
We’ve updated Jarvan IV’s bio to include the circumstances of his birth, which would eventually lead his father to wholly commit Demacia’s future to a young Prince Jarvan. Jarvan’s upbringing now also shows a connection to Xin Zhao, his father’s seneschal, who would work to expand Jarvan’s knowledge of the world beyond Demacia’s walls. Other minor changes to his bio should now better set in stone how he views the relationship between Noxus and Demacia, and his personal relationships with Garen and Shyvana, both of whom stand ready at his side to serve as the to-be-King’s protectors.
