Abilities

Balance of Power
Adaptive Helm item

Innate: Libra's secondary bar that tracks her Balance. Balance begins in the center whenever she spawns, and will tilt to the ProfileIcon1642 Cosmic Ruins Left and ProfileIcon0783 Orbital Laser Right through her ability usage, up to 50 in either direction.

While between 20 Left and 20 Right, Libra's abilities are Empowered.

Ability Details
Notes
  • It is possible to perform a combo of all three of her basic abilities from Central Balance and them all be empowered. As only E generates Balance on-cast, both her Q and W can be primed without affecting the empowerment threshold. Example: Q>W>E or E>W>Q.
  • The above combo can also be used to instantly generate 50 Right with a single rotation of her basic abilities, assuming consistent targeting. For example: mark an enemy with W, prime Q and then dash on them with E (assuming Q hits primarily enemies).
  • The same combo can be used to generate 50 left, but requires reactive timing on W to generate the initial 10 Left Balance - i.e. you have to wait for the enemy to throw out an attack or ability.



Ravenous Wind
EFFECT RADIUS: 425
COOLDOWN: 17 / 16 / 15 / 14 / 13
Blade's Reach A

Active: After a 0.75 second delay, Libra swings her staff about her. Enemies hit take magic damage while she and allies hit are freed of active crowd control effects, including Grounded icon knocking them down from Airborne icon airborne effects.

  • Magic Damage: 65 / 95 / 125 / 155 / 185 (+50% AP)

Libra's Balance shifts 20 Left if Ravenous Wind hits more allied champions than enemy, and 20 Right if she hits more enemy champions than allied.

Blade's Reach

Empowerment: Enemies hit are also Airborne icon knocked up for 0.75 seconds, while she and allies hit also gain bonus movement speed for 2 seconds.

  • Movement Speed: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30%
Emptylord LiveOrDive
"I decide who lives and dies"
Ability Details
Notes
  • Whether or not the ability will be empowered is determined on-cast, not on-detonation.
  • I am presently undecided as to whether Libra should count as an ally for the purposes of Balance generation. I'm inclined to prefer this set-up, as it requires weaving move Ws between Q and E casts to maintain Equilibrium while in-line, which off-sets her strong single-target healing.



Mark of Impudence
TARGET RANGE: 550
COOLDOWN: 12 / 10.5 / 9 / 7.5 / 6
Umbral Trespass

Active - Allied Target: Libra places a piñata on the target ally for 1.5 seconds that is triggered by the next enemy champion who damages the target, returning magic damage. Libra's Balance shifts 10 Left if the piñata is triggered.

  • Magic Damage: 30 / 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 (+45% AP)
Umbral Trespass R

Active - Enemy Target: Libra places a piñata on the target enemy for 1.5 seconds that is triggered by the next allied champion who damages the target, restoring health. Libra's Balance shifts 10 Right if the piñata is triggered.

  • Healing: 30 / 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 (+45% AP)

Empowerment: The piñatas can now be triggered multiple times, but each trigger is 20% weaker than the last. This does not generate additional Balance.

  • Maximum Damage/Healing (∞ hits): 50 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+90% AP)
Emptylord GiveUpThisFight
"Give up this fight!"
Ability Details
Notes
  • The first instance of damage applies spell effects as a Shunpo single target ability, after which it is classified as a Blaze damage over time. The healing applies Redemption item heal effects.



Test of Mettle
TARGET RANGE: 550
COOLDOWN: 20 / 18 / 16 / 14 / 12
Shadow Step A

Active: Libra dashes to the target champion and then vaults off them 200 units in the target direction, dealing magic damage to an enemy target and healing an allied target. Vector casting.

  • Magic Damage/Healing: 50 / 85 / 120 / 155 / 190 (+60% AP)
Shadow Step R

This ability holds two charges, but Libra must alternate between targeting allied and enemy champions. Libra's Balance shifts 20 Left on allied casts and 20 Right on enemy casts after vaulting from the target.

Empowerment: The damage and healing are increased by 50%.

Emptylord YouMustNotFall
"You must not fall!"
Ability Details
Notes
  • Applies damage as a Shunpo single target ability and the heal benefits from Redemption item heal effects.
  • Libra starts the game with free choice over her first target, if possible.
    • There could be a time-out on the target-lock, such as "After 60 seconds or respawning, Libra gains the ability to select any target."



Trials and Tribulations
TARGET RANGE: 900
EFFECT RADIUS: ?
COOLDOWN: 120 / 110 / 100
Scatter the Weak

Passive: Libra tracks a percentage of the post-mitigation damage that she and her allies have taken over the last 4 seconds. Area of effect damage is stored with only one-third effectiveness.

  • Stored Damage: 15 / 20 / 25% (+5% per 100 AP)

Active while 50 Left: After a brief delay, Libra unleashes a wave of energy forward in a line that deals magic damage to enemies hit equal to the stored amount.

Active while 50 Right: After a brief delay, Libra unleashes a wave of energy forward in a line, Blessing herself and all allied champions hit for 4 seconds. Blessed Allies are locked at their current health, instead storing all post-mitigation damage and healing they receive until the Blessing ends. The stored amount is then applied in full over the next 4 seconds.

Direct heals received by Blessed Allies are amplified.

  • Healing Amplifier: 15 / 20 / 25% (+5% per 100 AP)

Trials and Tribulations sets Libra's Balance to 0.

Ability Details
Notes
  • The stored damage dealt to Blessed champions is classified as self-inflicted, and dealt as true damage. It will not trigger spell effects. The damage can be mitigated by shields and invulnerability.
  • Delayed healing is still modified by Heal Power, but does not apply other Redemption item heal effects as the target is not technically healed.
  • The stored amount can be negative, instead healing them over the 4 seconds.
  • Shields and invulnerability will function normally and mitigate incoming damage - i.e. prevent the damage from being stored.



Double-Edged Shield
EFFECT RADIUS: 200
COOLDOWN: 120 / 110 / 100
Command Shockwave

Active: After channeling for 1 second, Libra transforms into a maelstrom that destroys all projectiles that pass into or out of the storm, both allied and enemy.

  • Duration: 1.5 / 2.75 / 4

While in this form, Libra gains 50% bonus movement speed and is Ghost ghosted, invulnerable and untargetable, but Disarm iconSilence icon cannot act except to end the effects early.

If the channel is interrupted, the cooldown is set to 10 seconds.

Development

Since the revelation of the Scythe and the Bow, I can't help but draw parallels between the Darkin and the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Given that we know there's five Darkin, I latched on to the X-Men interpretation - the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, with Apocalypse being a fifth character.

And so work began on Famine; the rider of the Black Horse; the Darkin Scales.

With regards to character lore, I thought it would be interesting if it were Apocalypse who forged the Four Horsemen - rather than bringing them together. Inspired by The Full Metal Alchemist, Apocalypse regards her homunculi as children and fulfils a motherly character niche within the champion roster. However, for some reason, present day Runeterra believes there are only 3 Darkin and that they are sentient weapons - rather than the true facts that there are five and that they are powerful beings of which 3 were trapped within their weapons. But why would only 3 of them be imprisoned? In my opinion, the logical explanation is that one of the remaining two is responsible for their imprisonment - and who better than a Darkin who's weapon is a symbol for justice and divine judgement?

And so, I propose it was Libra who imprisoned her three brothers. Depriving her brothers of freedom would also fulfil her horseman equivalent, Famine. I think it would befit the character if she also shackled herself, but I'm undecided on this as of yet. I do not want her to be the villain-of-villains, nor even "the good one". I would rather she were obsessive-compulsive - being controlled by her core much like her brothers, except that her core is Balance, rather than the more violent War, Death and Vengeance.

There still requires explanation as to why Libra and Apocalypse are not known in-universe. Perhaps Libra, similar to the Scales of Anubis, is revered as a sacred artefact within Ionia lore and, while known to be capable of devouring the unworthy, its inoffensive appearance has allowed it to go unremarked.

Identity

First and foremost, I am not particularly attached to this champion's name or title. Aatrox and Rhaast are both Latin, but the Latin words for "balance", "scales" or "equilibrium" is Libra - which is a fairly common English word and thus doesn't sound fantasy enough. I'd considered stylising it, such as Leebra, but it doesn't look right. Similarly, I can't think of any title that sounds cool without sounding over-dramatic. There is, alas, no naming schema for the Darkin (i.e. Arrow of Retribution, Darkin Blade and Shadow Reaper) - so I can't even follow the pattern.

Weapon

Libra's weapon is a Pair of Scales, although I am not decided on what sort of weapon this should be.

  1. Like Lady Liberty, the Scales could hang from a handle that is held high.
  2. Like Nox (SMITE), the Scales could be carried like a candlestick.
  3. Walking like a wizard, the Scales could be a stylised staff.
  4. Like depictions of the Zodiac Libra or Jesus Christ, the Scales could be exceptionally large and carried across the shoulders. Similar to a see-saw, the Scales could have braziers instead of hanging plates.

Of these, the load-bearer (4) would likely be the most unique silhouette - as the game features several staffs (almost all wielded by females), as well as virtually all female characters having a proud/confident posture (Quinn is the closest to slouching/having a timid silhouette). Even Yorick Yorick does not move like he's carrying a weight on his back, despite what it represents.

If Libra were to be the load-bearer, her character could even be aged to fulfil an aged-crone character niche - rivalling Ryze Ryze for who has the most "crushing responsibility", although I would not want her character to be disdainful of human folly as Ryze is. Her character should be like an scornful-but-encouraging Grandma, or Wise Old Witch, like the witch from Brave.
