CommanderMarko Primordium

Cygnus' spells deal bonus magic damage equal to 100% of the consumed Dark Matter.

When out of combat for 3 seconds, Cygnus stats to regenerate 5% of his maximum Dark Matter each second. Taking damage from enemy champions or turrets will disable the regeneration by 3 seconds.

Additionally, minion and monster kills grant Cygnus 10 (+7.5% of his maximum Dark Matter), while champion kills and assists grant 20% of Cygnus' maximum Dark Matter.

  • Primordium basically explains Cygnus' new resource, Dark Matter. I know it's the name of Veigar's W, but Dark Matter isn't visible to us, right?
  • Cygnus' abilities have no cost to them, instead they just consume a percentage of the current Dark Matter Cygnus has stored to deal bonus magic damage.
  • Dark Matter cap is equal to 100 (+ 50 x level).

CommanderMarko Blazing Nova

  • Magic Damage: 40 / 75 / 110 / 145 / 180 (+ 40% AP)

CommanderMarko Wormhole

Active: Cygnus creates two gates through space and time, one below him and one at target area. Enemies caught near the wormholes have their magic resist reduced by a percentage. After 2.5 seconds, Cygnus may re-cast the spell to blink at the second wormhole, dealing magic damage to nearby enemy units.

  • Magic Damage: 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 (+ 45% AP)
  • Magic Resist Reduction: 12 / 14 / 16 / 18 / 20 %
  • Radius of AoE: 200 / 225 / 250 / 275 / 300

CommanderMarko Cosmic Abyss

Active: Cygnus begins channeling for 2.5 seconds, becoming a living black hole. Nearby enemies are pulled toward the Cygnus for the duration of the channel. After the channel is completed, Cygnus deals magic damage to all enemy units that were affected by the spell, while stunning them for 0.5 seconds. If Cygnus is interrupted while channeling, the ability is cancelled, and its cooldown is reduced by 50% of it's original cooldown, with half of the consumed Dark Matter is refunded.

  • Magic Damage: 300 / 550 / 700 (+ 100% AP)
  • Radius of AoE: 450

  • Your screwed if Cygnus catches your whole team with this one.
  • Maximum bonus magic damage from the consumed Dark Matter is equal to 500 bonus magic damage at level 18.


Cygnus descends from the deepest reaches of the stars, presenting himself as a lord of the stars. With the power he has over space and time itself, he is an unyielding force to be reckoned with. However, his true quest is that of preventing a horror of pure chaos to be awakened once again, on the very same world we live in.

Not much is known about Cygnus. Legend tells of an eternal god that looms in the night sky, keeping watch on the lifeforms of the cosmos. He did not took much interest in most of the species, but rather, he kept an eye on Runeterra. Cygnus was quite unsure why was the planet engulfed in war, the species waging battles for many years. For that time, a great evil was about to be released on the world, and only he knew how to stop it.

One of the Rune Wars had such a ravage explosion of raw magic, it sent the energy right into the 'Fog', a place known as from where all evil occurs in the cosmos. At that moment, Cygnus rushed to stabilize the outburst, but it was too late. The Fog, fused with arcane power, became alive. It manifested itself into an immortal being, and looked at the Magus in the eyes.

For once, Cygnus felt fear in his heart, the unpredictable happened.

He was unaware of what to do against this form of chaos. The monster entered Runeterra, and spread havoc, leaving corpses and nothing but dust in its wake. Cygnus came down to Runeterra himself, and asked the commander of a loyal army to help him contain this creature. The commander politely agreed, and he lead his army, alongside Cygnus to defeat the manifest. After a long and bloody battle, it was finally defeated.

The Magus sealed it within the deepest chamber beneath the soil, never to be seen again. Though that was what many thought would happen, Cygnus couldn't prevail over his feeling of fear. He was afraid that if he was not at the moment if this abomination is somehow, set free, all of the stars will be consumed.

If the universe is vastly unexplored, so are the minds of those who live in it.
― Cygnus
