DISCLAIMER: All of the characters/custom champions that I've made belong to their own universe. What I'm merely doing is giving them a kit based off of their theme and capabilities while trying to make them fit among the other champions lore-wise.
Devious and relentless in battle, Mirage is a junkie with an abnormal addiction. Armed with her signature weapon, the Reconditus, she wanders the land in search of Arcanum, a substance that she alone can extract from the earth's crust and sate her hunger with. Having crossed paths with many and fought against powerful foes, her vision of instinct-like survival is undying. Mirage may only see the future, for she is only running away from her past.
- We are all addicted to something that takes away the pain.
I've teased Mirage for some time now. After getting to work on her again, I decided to keep her main theme (Arcane Weapon) intact, while changing her as a character a bit.
Mirage used to have no 'sense of direction' as a character. She fought another one of my OCs and... well. Nothing came out of that.
I decided to improve the connection to her Arcane roots by making her a junkie. Not only does the Reconditus serve as her weapon of choice, but the Arcane energy it extracts from the earth has various side effects on the user: Adrenaline rush, hysteria, heightened senses and most importantly, addiction.
This change of character solved her problems. Simply put, now she's a wandering junkie in possession of a one-of-a-kind weapon who's trying to survive in the outskirts of Runeterra.
