Far away in the future, the Lunar gods have decided on a condition for humans to ensure a prosperous year. Once every year, the Lunar Beast will awaken and cross into mortal lands, seeking any who would play with it. All the humans have to do is indulge the Beast till it falls back into slumber. If the Lunar Beast is sufficiently sated, the year is sure to be prosperous.
To ensure that the Beast is satisfied, there are squads of exceptional humans who stand ready to meet the requirements. For this year, we have got the Ox Squad, a group led by Alistar who answer to the Bull God. They have assured everyone that this year’s event will be successful.
However, there are others who have plans against the Ox Squad…
Current Ox Squad
Lunar Beast Alistar
Alistar is not only ready for the festival, he has succeeded in making the Squad ready too.
The leader of Ox Clan, Alistar keeps his stubborn squad in line with his reliability and gruff approval. A bit quick to anger with some squad members’ bull-headedness, he’s determined that nothing and no one will derail this Lunar New Year festival, or Ox Clan’s plan to make it a flawless celebration.
Lunar Beast Annie
Apart from scouting the street ahead of the Squad, Annie ensures that civilians stay away from the action area.
Everyone was shocked when Annie was chosen as Ox Clan’s tech operative. A precocious prodigy, Annie serves as the team’s recon strategist, making sure the parade route is clear of civilians.
Lunar Beast Aphelios
The Bull God placed Aphelios in the Squad unknown to others.
Aphelios stays quiet, preferring to worship the Bull God according to obscure “old ways” that are unfamiliar to the rest of his squad. His teammates are welcoming, if curious, but have yet to realize that Aphelios and his sister Alune are actually the Bull God’s progeny, placed among the squad to face this year’s Lunar Beast.
Lunar Beast Darius
Even if though he clashes with Alistar sometimes, Darius genuinely loves the Squad.
Darius’ imposing presence and determination to lead by example cause occasional tension between him and Alistar, the actual leader of the squad. Despite how overbearing he can be, Darius is a strong and steadfast friend to his teammates and a rock for the whole Clan.
Lunar Beast Fiora
Fiora is determined to reclaim her family’s honor this year.
Fiora keeps mostly to herself, determined to reclaim her family’s honor from her father’s failure as a member of the last Ox Squad. She thinks the rest of the squad doesn’t take their duties seriously enough, and her determination to avoid another disastrous New Year makes her seem standoffish and cold to her teammates.
Lunar Beast Fiora Prestige Edition
Long days of community service and long nights of tactical planning have left Fiora not drained but energized. Her steely determination has hardened into foresight and loyalty. Whatever the Lunar Beast throws at them, Ox Squad knows Fiora has their back.
Lunar Beast Jarvan IV
This event might just be what Jarvan IV needs to learn important teamwork skills.
Jarvan IV’s stubborn refusal to join Ox Clan only relented to his father’s stubborn insistence. Though he tries his best to shirk the celebrity status that comes with the role, Jarvan comes from a long line of philanthropists and has found himself caught up in the thrill of bringing businesslike efficiency to the biggest community event of the year.
Lunar Beast Miss Fortune (Wild Rift Only)
The Lunar Beast is in for a treat….Miss Fortune will ensure that.
A former street tough recruited by the Bull God himself, Miss Fortune was persuaded to join by fame and glory. She’s here to prove not just that the Ox Clan is the best squad, but that whatever squad that has her as a member is the best. Restless and proud, Miss Fortune is eager to show off her skills at the Lunar New Year celebration.
Former Squad member
Lunar Beast Viego
Viego blames everyone else for his failure, even the current Ox Squad.
Former leader of a past Lunar Ox Squad, Viego decided that they would fight the Lunar Beast and actually defeat it. His plan ended in tragedy as he watched the rest of his squad be devoured– including his wife. Viego has stewed in bitterness over these losses for years, blaming everyone but himself — including this year’s Lunar Ox Squad.
Although this skin line did not pop off in League of Legends as it did in Wild Rift, I believe it is a really good one. With its superb theme and playful vibes, I hope we get more updates on the universe. You can also check out the Star Guardians.
