Both champions are elements of Noxus's elite.

  • As revealed in Talon's League Judgement, Talon used to have a friend and partner in crime back when he was a young thief on the streets of Noxus. His name was Kavyn and the two lived together in an unused pipe in the sewers. The two of them often teamed up to steal food and other things from merchants on the streets, however Kavyn was very unreliable and often caused Talon to nearly get caught. One day, after another failure due to Kavyn's incompetence, Kavyn showed Talon some daggers he had stolen and intended to sell. Talon promptly used them to kill Kavyn, committing his first murder and gaining a taste for killing and blades.
