“Ionians from every province gathered beneath the flowered branches of the Great Tree in the Serene Gardens yesterday for the city-state’s annual Festival of Fire. An early summer tradition, this festival was a symbol of Ionian culture, celebrating the cleansing and rebirth of the spirit.”

― Henril Dreving (The Journal of Justice: Volume 1, Issue 22)

From the sunset till the dawn the citizen of ionia face what  they call “The Blood Moon” to cleanse their fears and woes.

During the night, Ionian citizens were treated to various musical and theatrical performances pertaining to Ionian history or legend.

As the sun starts to rise the scrolls are burned with magic fire. As the magic dissipates the sun shines in the sky and the soul is purified.

Special occasions

The headlining performance featured League Champions Shen Shen, the Eye of Twilight, and Akali Akali, the Fist of Shadow, who performed The Tale of Reina, a legend in which an ancient Ionian warrior is hunted by an evil spirit.

Akali took the part of Reina herself, dressed in formal Ionian red and white battle garb, and Shen played the spirit that plagued her, adorned with a fearsome mask. As the legend goes, Reina fled the spirit for years, yet it always found and tormented her. Finally, Reina donned her own mask to confront the spirit, but when she turned to face it, it never came again, frightened away by her strength.

When the sun rose in the morning and the Tree had become almost fully concealed behind scrolls, an Ionian summoner lit them briefly aflame. As the magic dissipated, the sun shone brilliantly through the branches of the Great Tree. Master Hana, an Ionian adjudicator, stated that this was the festival's greatest lesson: out of any darkness comes the grandest of light.

    • This is how she would be seen in Ionian culture.
      • She might be a referencing The Tale of Reina, which was performed by Akali and Shen in Festival of Fire, with Kalista being the haunting spirit.

"Kalista is known all across Runeterra... but different cultures may tell her story differently, as well as have a different idea of how she looks, since most of them - the lucky ones, anyway - have likely never actually seen her." - Anthony 'Ant in Oz' Reynolds
