Cosmic Corruptants
  • Cho'Gath DarkStarCircle Dark Star Cho'Gath [S|L]
    • Spawned from the remnants of a star system crippled by famine, Cho'Gath is driven to feed on any celestial body that crosses his path. These feasts swirl into the twin black holes at his heart-as endless and ageless as his hunger.
  • Jarvan IV DarkStarCircle Dark Star Jarvan IV [S|L]
    • A mortal emperor unbound by the destruction of his world, Jarvan's essence has since been reforged by the ageless energies of deep space. His humanity and his people now lost forever, he stands ready to welcome the Dark Star incursion, in the final subjugation of all existence.
  • Kha'Zix DarkStarCircle Dark Star Kha'Zix [S|L]

  • Orianna DarkStarCircle Dark Star Orianna [S|L]
    • Born out of the remnants of a magnificently advanced system, Orianna serves the Dark Star with meticulous precision. She dances across galaxies in an endlessly horrifying performance, the only witness is the silent trail left in her wake.
  • Rhaast OdysseyCircle Dark Star Rhaast [S|L]
    • Presenting himself as the ‘voice’ of the ubiquitous organic fuel known as ora, Rhaast is a bloodthirsty monstrosity sealed inside an ancient, alien scythe. Unlike Kayn OdysseyCircle Kayn [S|L], he does not particularly care about spectacle or showmanship—he mainly just likes to kill things. In this way, the two share an uneasy alliance, with Kayn wanting to harvest as much ora as possible, and Rhaast wanting to snuff out as much life from the universe as he can. Bound for untold eons in various planetary backwaters, Rhaast has had plenty of time to consider his own masters’ true plans for the universe, beyond all the indiscriminate murder, and he doesn't mind holding off on them for now...
  • Thresh DarkStarCircle Dark Star Thresh [S|L]
    • A cosmic nightmare who worships the all-consuming Dark Star, Thresh vows to feed the whole of existence to his "god" until all matter, time and thought are erased. His work will be complete when nothing remains, freeing him to finally leap into the singularity and become one with the end of the universe.
  • Varus DarkStarCircle Dark Star Varus [S|L]
    • An interstellar titan containing multitudes within his eldritch mind, Varus serves the all-consuming Dark Star, a dread singularity born in the darkness of deep space. His arrival is cataclysmic extinction event, erasing entire planetary systems as if they were never there.
