Concept of a red bird/cardinal


Hello fellow summoner.

This here is my AP Assassin champion whose gameplay is based on harassing enemy from afar and applying stacks before diving in and securing a kill with huge nukes. She has no escape move unless she gets a kill, so players needs to know when to jump in. Being an assassin, I try to create a rather squishy champion who is meant to be in the middle of teamfights for very brief moments before retreating, only to enter the fray when the time arises.

In terms of lanning phase, she works best as either a top laner or mid lander due to her great harass range. She should only engage direct fights after applying her personal debuff as it will greatly help her burst. She will suffer greatly in the jungle since she has no built in sustain, but should be possible with some help.

The theme of this champion is Red. I don't know why, but the picture compels me to make the theme red.

I hope you enjoy it.

Change Log


  • The original. Support:
  • What she looked like before she became one with the suit. Yes, she's an assassin.
  • Just another suit of armor she could possibly wear. Clearly this isn't Dead Space.

When war began to break out in Runeterra and lasted for decades, Nalis and a magician known as Black Rose sought for the end of the wars. With Black Rose intelligence and Nalis swift skills, the two began to influence the world closer to peace. But after years of fighting against the war, Nalis began to became suspicious of her close friend true intentions as he began to gain political power. Before she could confirm her suspicious, she was betrayed by Black Rose. She would have died but Black Rose kept her alive through a biomechanical suit of armor he had constructed as he could not afford to lose such a powerful asset during war times. The suit was to follow the orders of its master and used Nalis endowed strength to cause destruction and fuel the wars in his favor. Black Rose collected his power through the monster he had created known as the Scarlet Cardinal, but when he thought he would become the ruler of Runeterra, the Scarlet Cardinal turn against him. Unknowing to him, Nalis had managed to regain control and with the last of her strength, she sacrificed her body to take him out.

Century later, her body has been retrieved and revived by the League of Legends in order show her dominance on the field, but Nalis fights only to keep the people from falling under the wrongs hand. Even with her body still not in 100% functional, Nalis is still more than a challenge against any opponent.

"No such thing as death will keep me from protecting the innocent"
Nalis, the Scarlet Cardinal


Because she is an assassin, her build will heavily favor stacking AP and Magic Penetration/Reduction.

This means items she will prefer (for season 3) are:


So unlike most polls I read, I'm going to try to find what people don't like the most, if there is anything you don't like and please comment and explain more. If not, please feel free to pick that you like the entire kit.

Do you have a problem with any of the abilities?
