Blood Moon

By Jared Rosen

Blood Moon is a series of alternate future/universe skins in League of Legends. Set in the mythos of Ionia, it features champions as Ionian demons or cult worshipers of the Blood Moon.

The skin line was born when featured in the Journal of Justice (Issue 22: Ionia Celebrates Annual Festival of Fire).

Lore

An ancient cult, seeking irresistible power, surfaces on nights of the Blood Moon to perform profane, esoteric rites—merging their flesh with demonic spirits, and becoming one with an ever greater darkness.

Blood Moon Cultists
  • Aatrox BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Aatrox
    • Ancient manuscripts tracking the orbit of the Blood Moon describe it not as celestial phenomenon, but as a cosmic womb. As the seasons grow shorter and the cult’s activity continues to increase, some worry it will give birth to a new kind of demon—a creature helping to bring about its own dark ascendance.
  • Aatrox PrestigeBloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Aatrox Prestige Edition
    • Aatrox has been loosened upon the mortal plane. A creature born in the heart of the Blood Moon, he is the progenitor of all demons, and a malignant darkness that will consume the entire world.
  • Akali BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Akali
    • Priestesses of the Blood Moon walk their own path, traveling far from the cult to pursue the whispers of their demons. A meditative figure living eep in the snow-dusted wood, Akali was the first woman to embrace her inner darkness, and speak directly with the Blood Moon itself.
  • Diana BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Diana
    • A child chosen by the Blood Moon itself, Diana's mind has been opened to the lost ways of the cult—unknown to its leaders, and even the slavering demons beyond. Hers is a truth no one can know, and a fated metamorphosis beyond men and gods.
  • Elise BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Elise
    • A revered priestess of the Blood Moon cult, Elise has so wholly intertwined her body with her demon spirit that they are now a single entity. She has traveled beyond all known civilization, existing in the apocryphal darkness hanging beyond the precipice of the world.
  • Evelynn BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Evelynn
    • A seductive demon summoned on the night of the Blood Moon, Evelynn moves between isolated villages, wooing the residents until they fall deeply in love with her. One by one these poor souls will surely perish, their hearts torn from their still-living bodies.
  • Jhin BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Jhin
    • Ink-mage, trained assassin, master of ceremonies: Jhin is all this and more, a grandiose figure whose encyclopedic knowledge of centuries-old rituals fuels the Blood Moon's hellish summoning rites. He knows the name of every demon, and how to direct them into a still-living vessel.
  • Kalista BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Kalista
    • A demon of vengeance summoned on the night of the Blood Moon, Kalista's singular obsession with 'betrayers' knows no limits—any deception, no matter how trivial, will be met with death. Her victims are left hanging from the walls of their homes, a warning to those who remain.
  • Kennen BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Kennen
    • A kingslaying demon summoned on the night of the Blood Moon, Kennen's purpose is to depose those in power and eliminate every member of their line. He is ruthless in this task, tearing across heavily armed fortress cities in the blink of an eye.
  • Pyke BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Pyke
    • A demon spearfisher lurking within the darkness of the Blood Moon’s mirror dimension, Pyke casts his hooked blade across an endless, liquid night, dragging demons up from the bottom of the world and into their human hosts. Inexorably tied to the Blood Moon, Pyke's sudden appearance in Ionia is a dire omen indeed...
  • Shen BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Shen
    • The most indomitable disciple, in mind and body, Shen's loyalty to the Blood Moon cult can never be shaken. He serves as the personal bodyguard of the group's most important figures, executing interlopers with a cool dispassion, suggesting part of his humanity has already been consumed.
  • Sivir BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Sivir
    • A newly anointed priestess of the Blood Moon cult, Sivir wields a weapon that is both a killing tool and a key to the hellish mirror world where all demons are born. Slowly but surely, it has merged her twinned selves, and now it is no longer clear where the human ends and the monster begins.
  • Talon BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Talon
    • An anarchic demon summoned on the night of the Blood Moon, Talon was once a human assassin who surrendered his flesh during one of the cult's possession rituals. He now kills indiscriminately, relishing the terror in his victim's dying eyes.
  • Thresh BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Thresh
    • A demon summoned on the night of the Blood Moon, Thresh's insatiable urge to torture and kill is fueled by thousands of vengeful spirits drawn to his lantern. Entire villages are left slaughtered in his wake, their blood staining the land for decades.
  • Twisted Fate BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Twisted Fate
    • The Blood Moon cult's true leader is shrouded in whispers and hearsay. It is he who first passed the trial of the masks, and he who unraveled the secrets of surrendering one's flesh to the demon spirits. Whether he is still human, none can say—but he is ever present, and always watching.
  • Yasuo BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Yasuo
    • Ceremonial executioner of the Blood Moon cult, Yasuo's blade is inhabited by an insidious, bloodthirsty demon whose hunger for death can never be satisfied. This suits Yasuo well, for he is possessed of an inner darkness even deeper than the creature whispering at his side.
  • Zilean BloodMoonCircle Blood Moon Zilean
    • Manipulating the lunar cycle by fueling his temporal magic with human blood, Zilean is the face of the Blood Moon cult, and a hellish warlock of unimaginable power. His mind exists across the flow of time, communing with legions of demons from the past, present, and future.

History

The Bloody Tale

Blood Moon 2017 promo

The Blood Moon

She woke up screaming.

Red. Everything had been so red. And in the center of the bloodbath, the masked warriors had danced, eyes aglow with murderous intent. Good night, their eyes had whispered.

Her companions crowded around her, worried. Behind them, the fire burned low. Above them, thick clouds suffocated the sky.

"What did you see?"

She paused. Did she dare call on those apparitions? "Just... a bad dream. It was only a dream."

They returned to their slumber, and she sighed, still shaken. "It was only a dream", she repeated.

A sudden wind shook the trees around the site. She shivered, closing her eyes and wishing for morning.

As the clouds parted above, red moonlight bloodied the ground.

Trivia

  • The Blood Moon theme shares a lot of similarities to most of the Shadow Isles thematic, but with an Ionian twist.
