Isolde – Viego can be the next couple to hit the Rift
Introducing Legends League champions is one thing, but building the same amount of hype surrounding them is another. Each new release enters Summoner’s Rift with an occurrence and a skillset that spices up the metagame. While Riot Games brings a lot of game changes with each patch, nothing rocks the League like a new champion. While other title fans rely on leaks to catch a peek of what’s on the way for their favorite game, Riot loves hiding stuff in plain sight.
This time, it’s Isolde – Viego’s wife. League fans haven’t had a chance to check out Viego yet, but it looks like Isolde could be next on the list after the Ruined King paths to Summoner’s Rift.
There is no information available on Isolde about her abilities or appearance, but her theme has been exposed briefly in Viego’s biography. Isolde was a seamstress who had been cut off by a poisonous knife intended to attack Viego. Despite not leaving a stone unturned for his dying love, Viego was unable to find a cure in time, which forced him to witness the tragic death of his beloved.
Despite being a fair ruler, Viego steadily began to lose his sense of identity and never gave up searching for a way to see his beloved, even though it was only the last time. The endeavors of Viego brought him to the Blessed Isles and its soothing waters. After conquering the ground, Viego used the soothing waters of Isolde, but no one predicted the end result.
Isolde just returned from the grave to scream in rage and agony. After all, she was ripped from the icy embrace of death, which can be as soothing as it sounds terrifying. When all this was going on, Isolde made a move to the blade of Viego and pierced it through his heart. After these events, Viego turned into a love-driven lych king and began to wreak havoc again, trying to locate his wife without his memory of what happened that day.
What happens to Isolde after this is quite uncertain, but assuming she hasn’t reverted to being dead afterwards, it seems like a special reconciliation will be waiting for both League fans and Viego.
Isolde was in a couple of clues. The same sigil is shared by both the teaser image of Viego and the new top laner. Any sewing elements are also used in the illustration for the latter. Easter eggs could be hidden in the upcoming Ruined King title, which could help players find out the current state of Isolde.
