Among the mega-structures and packed streets of a future controlled by global corporations, a shadow war rages between rebellious, augmented humans, and newly empowered artificially beings. The winners will shape the course of history... and the losers will be forced to evolve.
PROJECT Initiates
  • Master Yi PROJECT Trace 1 Trace 1 - Master Yi PROJECTYiCircle PROJECT: Yi
    • One of the first concepts, Yi was held by PROJECT for extensive experimentation, and then finally freed by the G/NETIC rebels. His psyche may still contain some glitches, but his experimental hyperlight “alpha” blade serves the resistance with its precision blade.
  • Leona PROJECT Trace 2 Trace 2 - Leona PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Leona
    • A heavy armor combatant, Leona has seen the truth behind the neon light of PROJECT, and now stands with Ashe and the G/NETIC rebellion. She carries a mounted ion charge shield, capable of blocking and stunning targets with its variable energy yield output.
  • Lucian PROJECT Trace 3 Trace 3 - Lucian PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Lucian
    • Once a sentinel within the Command Line, Lucian has seen PROJECT for what they truly are. His dual ion-core Lightcaster pistols now serve G/NETIC and the human rebellion, bringing down their technological oppressors with brutal efficiency.
  • Yasuo PROJECT Trace 4 Trace 4 - Yasuo PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Yasuo
    • Yasuo returned from advanced combat only to be accused of a crime he did not commit. Knowing that PROJECT’s corporate leadership was somehow involved, Yasuo fights with the G/NETIC rebels, cutting away the lies of technology with his plasma coated blade.
  • Zed PROJECT Trace 5 Trace 5 - Zed PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Zed
    • Rising from the Command Line, Zed is a leader within PROJECT's counter-espionage units. He seeks out the G/NETIC rebels with split high frequency blades and molecular "solid smoke" projectors, favoring close-proximity and multiple angle target laceration.
  • Fiora PROJECT Trace 6 Trace 6 - Fiora PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Fiora
    • Augmented for speed, Fiora uses her zero-pulse sword to fight alongside Ashe and the other members of G/NETIC. The full-length energy blade allows for flawless attack precision and maximum repel strength, while the spatially controlled atomic tip coating is the most suited for single-target combat.
  • Ashe PROJECT Trace 7 Trace 7 - Ashe PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Ashe
    • While on the frontlines of a corporate war, Ashe witnessed the human cost of PROJECT’s ambition. Now the leader of the resistance group G/NETIC, Ashe has set her sights on nothing less than the downfall of the most powerful corporations.
  • Ekko PROJECT Trace 8 Trace 8 - Ekko PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Ekko
    • A hacked prodigy picked up from the lower sectors by Ashe, it didn’t take much to convince Ekko to help her take down PROJECT. Using a powerful key decrypter and a mind tuned for disruption, Ekko can always find a way into the code.
  • Katarina PROJECT Trace 9 Trace 9 - Katarina PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Katarina
    • Once an ambitious lieutenant in the G/NETIC rebellion, Katarina returned to the Command Line after a confrontation with Ashe herself. Her hyper edge daggers now serve PROJECT once more, but those rebels who knew her still hold out hope that she fights for them from the inside.
  • Jhin PROJECT Trace 10 Trace 10 - Jhin PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Jhin
    • After a botched surgery, Jhin went from being a black-market augmented hacker to a notorious mechanized killer for hire. Still programmed with a taste for high-clearance upgrades, the tech Jhin takes from his victims has left him with a severe personality fragmentation, and a dark vision for the future of PROJECT… and humanity.
  • Vayne PROJECT Trace 11 Trace 11 - Vayne PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Vayne
    • Augmented with classified tech, Vayne was once a member of PROJECT’s counter espionage unit. After she was betrayed by the corporation she served, she now stalks the shadows as a vigilante, searching for ways to break PROJECT and the technology that haunts her soul.
  • Vi PROJECT Trace 12 Trace 12 - Vi PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Vi
    • Street-smart, brash and always bluntly honest, Vi is a Central detective working to keep law and order in the neon city. Toughened from her days as a lower sector enforcer, Vi keeps the peace with a pair of ATLAS gauntlets, and a mean right hook.

Trivia

  • The concept of Master YiSquare PROJECT Yi was the brainchild of Marco “Wendigo” Silva, an artist from the São Paulo Riot Games office. Nicknamed "Cyber Yi", its thematic was later incorporated into the PROJECT skin line during YasuoSquare PROJECT: Yasuo's development.
  • "PROJECT: OVERDRIVE" was done in collaboration with Ben Hibon, who also worked on "Infinity Blades III: Origins", "DMC" and "The Tale of the Three Brothers" from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" movie.
  • PROJECT Initiates have bar codes on their head, similar to Agent 47 from the Hitman series.
  • AsheSquare PROJECT is leading the resistance group G/NETIC in the name of humanity and her drone's name is Avarosa.
  • VayneSquare PROJECT is also trying to destroy PROJECT. However, she does not join G/NETIC.
  • EkkoSquare PROJECT is a hacker.
    • JhinSquare PROJECT was a hacker. However after a surgery, he is now a killer for hire.
  • A silhouette similar to Vel'Koz BattlecastCircle Battlecast Vel'Koz can be seen in the background of Katarina PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Katarina's splash art.
    • It later appears in the Camille ProgramCircle Program Camille splash art. Riot confirmed both are not Vel'Koz.
  • Camille ProgramCircle Program Camille was built to chase after G/NETIC rebels, tying Program line to this universe too.
  • Compared to all of the PROJECT skins, YasuoSquare PROJECT is the only one who does not possess robotic features on his actual face when unmasked, nor does he retain his robotic-voice-filter underneath it.
    • YasuoSquare PROJECT is also the only PROJECT skin (out of the non-Legendary skins) to have more than one extra set of animation changes; PROJECT: Yasuo has both different basic attack and recall animations while all other skins only have new recall animations.
  • JhinSquare PROJECT, VayneSquare PROJECT, and ViSquare PROJECT are considered as "PROJECT: Hunters".
  • Both Battlecast and Mecha are two distinct universes separate from the universe of PROJECT and Program.[2]
  • Akali SilverfangCircle Silverfang Akali might be part of the PROJECT universe due to the PROJECT Command Line logo visible at the back of her shirt. She shares colour and texture similarities with Lucian PROJECTCircle PROJECT: Lucian. Perhaps she is one of the last remaining humans who is not augmented with cybernetics.
