The Void is a place between dimensions and between worlds.

Lore

To some it is known as the Outside, to others it is the Unknown. To most, however, it is called the Void. It is a timeless place inhabited by various seemingly intelligent entities who, for reasons beyond human understanding, have the desire to gain entrance to and vitiate the worlds outside their realm. These creatures are called "Voidborn". According to Vel'KozSquare.png Vel'Koz, the Void is a very dark place, both he and ChoGathSquare.png Cho'Gath said that the daylight in Runeterra is too strong for them.

The lost city called Icathia seems to be connected to the Void, as some Voidborn are known to have appeared in the place and some mortals are known to have gained the Void's power in it. Mortals who encounter the power of the Void generally have one of two reactions:

  • Like MalzaharSquare.png Malzahar, the Prophet of the Void, their minds may be overwhelmed and they may become willing servants to the dark apocalyptic destinies they see emanating from the Abyss. On Runeterra, these individuals are referred to as "The Cult of the Void".
  • Like KassadinSquare.png Kassadin, the Void Walker, they may be horrified and shocked into an unyielding desire to lay down their lives to forestall the doom they see. On Runeterra, these individuals are referred to as "The Preservers".

Some historical evidence show that, in times long past, there were massive magical projects throughout Runeterra oriented toward creating a bulwark against the Void. These projects and their history, however, remain apocryphal.

Currently, MalzaharSquare.png Malzahar performs rituals with his followers to sacrifice humans to the Void. In one instance KassadinSquare.png Kassadin tried to stop him, however MalzaharSquare.png Malzahar managed to trick KassadinSquare.png Kassadin into sending his daughter into the Void.

Voidborn

Velkoz promo

The Voidborn know as Vel'KozSquare.png Vel'Koz.

Voidborn are shown to vary greatly in intelligent and developed: Vel'KozSquare.png Vel'Koz and ChoGathSquare.png Cho'Gath are highly intelligent (In due time KhaZixSquare.png Kha'Zix may aswell, but requires to assimilate other organic creatures.), while KogMawSquare.png Kog'Maw is rather primitive (This may due to fact that he is an infant) and Rek'SaiSquare.png Rek'Sai is primeval and non-sapient, more akin to a wild animal. As such there are also different hierarchies, Rek'SaiSquare.png Rek'Sai for example is the queen of her kind and feared by the other Voidborn. Vel'KozSquare.png Vel'Koz is likely in the higher hierarchy however, as he is allowed and able to execute other Voidborn should they become problematic for him.

All five creatures emanating from the Void seem to have a hunger that they must satisfy, their aim is for bleak superiority only against mortals (Some even unintentionally), and possess apostrophes in their names:

  • ChoGathSquare.png Cho'Gath hungers for fear and mayhem.
  • KhaZixSquare.png Kha'Zix craves biological perfection.
  • KogMawSquare.png Kog'Maw is glutton, always hungry.
  • Rek'SaiSquare.png Rek'Sai endlessly hunts prey.
  • Vel'KozSquare.png Vel'Koz seeks out knowledge.

There currently exist two lesser Voidborn creatures who are summonable to the plane of Runeterra for a short time.

These lesser voidborn are both quadrupeds, with insectile legs that are similar in appearance. They are smaller in size in comparison to other voidborn, being around the size of a minion, implying that they may not be fully matured. It has been hinted that they are non-sapient, and possess no lead nor master; however, their demeanors can be (forcefully) lieged to those that summon them. These voidborn appear to be linked in some way to the champion who summoned them, being able to either increase their strength either directly from the summoners own strength (VoidlingSquare.png Voidling) or defense (VoidspawnSquare.png Voidspawn).

There are multiple species of voidborn with only two being known: the Xer'Sai and the Zz'Rot. The Xer'Sai run rampant across the Sai Desert, a vast wasteland in southern Shurima, with their queen Rek'Sai being the apex predator of the entire region. The Zz'rot are diminutive quadrupeds with a volatile biology. They are also the only voidborn whose method of entry to Runeterra is known; their usage of portals. Presumably the remaining named voidborn: ChoGathSquare.png Cho'Gath, KogMawSquare.png Kog'Maw, KhaZixSquare.png Kha'Zix, Vel'KozSquare.png Vel'Koz and Baron NashorSquare.png Baron Nashor are also members of individual species.
