Star Guardian is a series of parallel universe skins in League of Legends that follow the story of a group of female middle school students who choose to become cosmic protectors and must battle cosmic enemies threatening the universe. However, they consequently learn of the anguish and perils associated with their newfound roles.



Lore

Star Guardian Promo 2

In the beginning of all things, the ProfileIcon1382 Star Guardian First Star gave its light to create the universe. New worlds were born - and with them, warriors imbued with the light of the First Star. These protectors are supernovas blazing bright, yet destined to collapse as furiously as they burn. They are the ProfileIcon1381 Mark of the Star Guardian Star Guardians.

As a Star Guardian fades, their power is reborn in new protectors. Star Guardians are chosen for their strength and resolve, but above all, they are chosen for their courage. It often signals a cataclysmic battle elsewhere in the universe when multiple Star Guardians are chosen to serve at once.

Star Guardians must familiarize themselves with the customs and rituals of a planet in order to blend in with its inhabitants, dispelling any suspicion about their true nature. Such activities often help strengthen the bonds between young Star Guardian teams.

Star Guardian Promo 5

Star Guardians are imbued with incredible power, but with it comes a lifetime of service to the universe. It is a life burdened by responsibility and fatal consequences. Although rare, a Star Guardian may reject their fate as a protector. However, the results of such an action reverberate across the universe and beyond.

Star Guardians can only defeat the darkness that spreads across the universe if they stand together. They will fight as one or fall as many.


Guardians

Star Guardian Promo Jinx

"All this damn light gives me a headache! Just point me toward what needs blowing up."

The newest member of the Star Guardians, Jinx Jinx struggles with the inherited cost of her destiny. She is a natural rebel who rages against anyone attempting to control her life. Her power may be the greatest among the Star Guardians, but Jinx will never fully awaken unless she can accept her place on the team.

Star Guardian Promo Lux

"I will protect the light until my last breath."

Lux Lux is a beacon of the First Star's light in the darkest times. A born leader, Lux is often tasked with keeping the Star Guardians as one unified team. She understands the price that must be paid for her power and embraces it for the good of the universe. Lux feels no doubts about her calling, but questions how someone as rebellious as Jinx fits into the larger purpose of the Star Guardians.

Star Guardian Promo Janna

"A Guardian may die, but their spirit never fades."

Janna Janna is a veteran Star Guardian who must use her experience to mentor the team. Before joining Lux, Poppy, Lulu, and Jinx, Janna led another team of Star Guardians, although she never speaks of her past. She rigorously fulfills her duty, but secretly wishes to complete her service and pass her power to a new Guardian.

Star Guardian Promo Poppy

"I'm a soldier, not a savior. Now get out of my way - I have a job to do."

There is no cost Poppy Poppy is unwilling to pay to fulfill her service. She views the power given to her as a weapon for destroying anything that threatens those she protects. Poppy refuses to accept any Star Guardian who is doubtful about the call and will face any challenge alone if necessary.

Poppy StarGuardian stats

Star Guardian Promo Lulu

"The light says hi, and that you're safe with us."

As the youngest of the Star Guardians, Lulu Lulu feels connected to her power and embraces it as a close companion. She is not concerned about trivial feuds or social norms among the team, and instead focuses on the magical world within her. This strange behavior often makes Lulu seem eccentric to the other Guardians. Only Jinx truly understands Lulu's natural desire to avoid a mundane life.

Lyrics
Star Guardian Burning Bright Cover

Burning Bright
We were born from light before there even was a dawn,
so pure, so bright.
Caught in destiny we shine for we are meant to be
the Star Guardians

Gone in a flash before our time,
up in the skies together.
The vow we have made has kept us strong.
Don't fade away, it's time to shine.

Burning bright,
as we reach out for the same horizon.
Burning brighter,
runnin' outta time, we're chasing the light.

Gone in a flash before our time,
up in the skies together.
The vow we have made has kept us strong.
Don't fade away, it's time to shine.

Burning bright,
as we reach out for the same horizon.
Burning brighter,
piercing through the dawn, we burn on and on (and on)
