    • Talon's original placeholder name was Bertrand.
  • The bird-like creature perched on the fallen sword in the Sneak Peek bears a striking resemblance to Beatrice, Swain Swain's raven, hinting that Talon's past may be interlaced with Swain's in some way. Similarly, the black roses surrounding the fallen sword in the Sneak Peek likely represent the Black Rose, an organization of which LeBlanc LeBlanc is the leader. Both champions are elements of Noxus's elite.

  • Talon was once spared by General Du Couteau and in turn, became his ally alongside with Katarina Katarina.
  • Talon and Quinn Quinn are rivals. Quinn indicates that she has some insight on Talon's assassination style. It is also speculated that Talon might actually be Quinn's missing brother, Caleb.
  • 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.
