Skin Lines in League of Legends: The Coven

Somewhere in a particular parallel universe exists beings known as the old gods. They ruled in absolute power over the world and were worshipped by a group of witches only known as the Coven. 

After several thousand years of unbroken dominion, the gods were hunted down and slain. This feat wouldn’t have been possible if not for a fatal betrayal from one of their followers. However, millennia later, the gods have begun to stir in their long-forgotten graves.

They await the moment when they will burst forth to resume their rule over the world.

The Coven skin line came from this story and from certain indications, it was made to counter the Eclipse skin line. Actually, it was the eclipse knight who killed the old gods after Kayle gave them the means to do so. 

At the moment there are only two eclipse skins and they belong to Leona so we will have to wait for extra lore on that aspect.

Another interesting thing about these skins is that each character has a patron god which they are modeled after. Now, let’s take a look at the Coven skins and their backstories.

Coven LeBlanc

Coven LeBlanc

LeBlanc is generally regarded as the master of illusions. So much so that no one is really sure they’ve ever encountered the original copy of her.

Skin Backstory

They came to LeBlanc as if in some forgotten melody-songs of the Black Crane, and its titanic heart long-imprisoned within the deepest reaches of the Elderwood.

Her sisters fell before the forest’s defenders, but LeBlanc did find her prize…and now her patron has begun to wake, stirring itself from a dreamless slumber of unhallowed centuries.

 

Coven Morgana

Morgana

Morgana’s sister Kayle was the one who betrayed her and orchestrated the downfall of the old gods her sister worshipped.

Skin Backstory

Queen of the coven and patron of that called Ashen Owl, Morgana worshipped the Old Gods and wept when they were slain-betrayed when her sister murdered the primordial sun and delivered its power to an army of witch-knights.

Now Morgana has returned to end the reign of mankind, returning the world’s true lords to their rightful, moldering thrones.

 

Coven Lissandra

Coven Lissandra

No one can accurately state Lissandra’s age and still, she continues to wait for the return of her gods. She’s got all the time in the world.

Skin Backstory

They came to Lissandra as if in some waking dream-visions of the Ivory Stag, and the old magics long lost to antiquity. Even now, the ageless witch resides among those twisted shadows of the old-growth, awaiting the day her dead gods spill forth from their rotten and accursed graves.

 

Coven Zyra

Coven Zyra

Zyra has a deep connection with nature especially plants and seeds. She longs for the day when the world will return to the old days when nature was free and unrefined.

Skin Backstory

They came to Zyra from the roots and rocks, stirrings of the Night Dove, its beating wings twisting the very land that is its grave. Tied now to the whispers beneath the loam, she rips away humanity’s works of stone and glass, each broken vestige another step towards a world returned to nature.

Coven Zyra Prestige Edition

Skin Backstory

The old gods stir, and rise once more to greet their sun-but she is slain, devoured by the daughters of the eclipse. On this lightless day they will rage, and quake, and howl, so all men shall know their first and final doom.

 

Coven Camille

Coven Camille

When Camille sets her mind on a task, she pursues it relentlessly. Now, she’s knows that her patron will soon wake and the world must stand ready to bow to him.

Skin Backstory

They came to Camille as if in some dark slumber-whispers of the Ebony Ram, and the nameless things tumbling up from long-forgotten sepulchers. Her throat full of hearsay, she cuts down the vestiges of the new world, seeding the earth with the magics and witchery of her ancient, grinning masters.

 

Wrapping up

The old gods seem to exist as a pantheon of some kind with each god having a chosen member of the coven. This member follows and does their bidding with total obedience.

In case you are wondering why the characters are all females, a coven refers to a group of witches. So, the coven should have female characters.
