Momo, the Red Channeler is a custom champion.
Momo's a redhead with long hair. As a goblin girl, she's quite small, and has two little horns protruding out her forehead, with a fang showing out her mouth. She's armed with an orange spear with axe-like blades near the tip so she uses both slashing and stabbing attacks, and despite her small size, her strength allows her to wield it as if it had the weight of a feather. When using Peach Possession, Peach appears and floats behind Momo. Peach has long peach-colored hair (that's where her name comes from after all) wears red mage robes that hide hooved legs.
In gameplay, Momo is a health-intensive fighter, with Peach providing her healing effects to contrast her health costs. Momo is stronger the more health she's missing, with almost all her skills benefiting in some way from missing health.
Momo is a pure rushdown diver type of champion, with heavy emphasis on lifesteal and being on low health.
- Momo's passive is a two-part passive.
- The first is her Drain gauge mechanics, which functions with her health costs. Drain exemplifies Momo's "dynamic health" playstyle.
- The second is Blood Knight, which functions to create Drain stacks while exemplifying her fighter qualities by increasing the damage she deals on her basic attacks.
- Momo's Peach Possession is her use of Peach. It is a toggled ability, but contrary to Mima and Belle's Spirit Tag, Peach does not give Momo new abilities, instead granting her life-steal and allowing Momo to regenerate health as long as she remains close to enemy champions. It is limited by her need to remain in melee range of enemy champions for the ability to provide actual healing.
- Momo's Crimson Weave is a defensive utility ability: a spell shield.
- Its followup ability, Flaming Tooth, is guaranteed to come out, but blocking spells makes it easier to pop it out, encouraging Momo to dive and rewarding her for managing to dive someone by readying Crimson Weave faster than not using it.
- Momo's song is Passionate Song, an engage-empowering ability that gives an on-hit effect that gives allied champions increased movement speed to dive easier.
- Momo's ultimate is Shooting Star, a charged dash that carries all enemies hit to her arrival point and deals area of effect damage from there. Its long range allows Momo to dive in the middle of the enemy team, possibly from out of nowhere, or just catch them from behind to create extremely disadvantageous situations for the enemy team by way of extreme displacement.
Momo was born alone in the streets of her city. She spent her early days surviving on her own, with thievery as the only talent that kept her alive. Taking all measures necessary to survive on her own, Momo never truly was educated as much as she learned by peeping on other people. She survived and fought, doing nothing but this for a living. Eventually, fighting occupied so much a place in her life that she spent her free time honing her skill and increasing her strength through all means necessary.
Her life changed when she spotted a young rich-looking blonde girl walking around in her turf. Hoping to beat her senseless and steal anything she may sell for a price, she picked her moment to attack, but ended up being doubly blindsided. First, her attack did not surprise the target at all, as Momo had almost been expected. Second, it seemed the girl wasn't even intent on killing her, despite being armed with two energy-shooting guns. Forced to a standstill for the first time in her life, Momo let her opponent talk. Her name was Mima, and she had come to stop Momo's violence sprees by giving her a home.
This was a life-changer. Mima taught Momo about communication and compassion, and gave her a reason to fight. The duo would walk the streets on some nights, and everyone soon knew not to attack others under their watch. But this life was empty for Momo. All the gratitude and praise went to Mima, and Momo was only regarded as the second banana, or an unhealthy sidekick that only Mima kept in check. Frustration grew up in her, and she soon suspected Mima to feel the same way about her as the others.
Momo decided that she'd had enough. She closed her heart, sounded off at her caretaker, and left. To clear her doubts, she came to the Fountain of Life. It was there that a fox spirit instructed her to make a wish - she'd made it to the Fountain, it had to be for a reason. Momo wished her pain and her doubt would just go away, and as the coin she tossed in the fountain entered the blessed water, so they did. By the following morning, Momo made her way to the city at the other side of the Fountain, or rather, what remained of it. The broken remains of the lost Amano dynasty. Momo felt nostalgia within her, even though she hadn't been there before. Using the memories that were not hers, Momo resumed her activities in her new home turf with greater success. She fought, she stole, she cheated, and she survived whatever the price to the rest of the world. However, by the time she became a figure so feared that children wouldn't go out at night, she saw something even more fearsome: from someplace near the city, a distortion had swallowed up all the land up to a short walk away.
Momo's first idea was to go by herself check what it was all about, but seeing the immense power that she was about to face, she heeded the voice in her head that told her to run. However, the warped dimension kept swallowing up the land. Before it would reach the city, Momo decided to leave and make her way to the one person she knew could help her with this - as much as it frustrated her, it was Mima.
However, when she crossed the road to the Fountain, the fox spirit appeared before her again, and alerted her that Mima had just fallen victim to a cruel fate. Momo didn't accept the vagueness of the warning as proof of Mima's death, and she would refute it until she saw Mima dead for herself. She came back to seize what belonged to Mima, picking fights as she felt like on the way. Her first fight was with a rookie named Hana, and Momo nearly killed her. The fight came to a halt when another girl named Eina intervened. Just by looking at the intruder, the feelings within Momo that she identified as foreign stirred again.
When alone, Momo pondered about the situation: the rookie knew Mima. Momo hadn't even cared when they were face-to-face, but that had been her objective and she'd just let it slide by because Hana annoyed her. Momo decided to find her again as soon as possible. However, the first to find her was not Hana, but Eina. The mysterious girl was asking her about the distortion behind the Fountain. Momo humored the idea of letting Eina in; maybe, if she couldn't find Mima, she could use her instead. Momo asked Eina for Hana's location as a favor, and Eina lead her straight to Hana's house. Momo waited there for their second meeting. However, it went south when Momo mentioned Mima's name and Hana attacked her directly. The fox spirit she had seen twice before appeared again, to watch the fight. However, Hana fainted in the middle of the fight, without Momo actually hitting her once.
Angered at Foxie for her lack of concern, Momo decided that the other girls were more worth confiding to than her. Trying to have more talks with Hana, she offered her to live like she did to relieve her burdens, but Hana turned her down. Unable to let Hana in her apparent state of depression, Momo spent her days tracking her down. The next time she heard her, it was her panicked scream. Momo couldn't help but rescue her from the would-be killer, Eina. By the time Momo was done shouting at Eina, Hana had escaped again. Momo gave pursuit, but found her on a murder scene, guilty as charged. Momo offered to take her away, but a depressed Hana ordered Florence to kill her too. Momo was saved by Eina, and found out from her musings that this is what happened to Mima too. They decided to mount a plan to bring Hana back: Eina distracted Foxie and Momo brought Rin to call out to Hana as two. However, Momo's plan failed when Rin was attacked by Florence as a priority target and easily defeated. Momo fought Florence one-on-one, but was knocked out when their final attacks collided.
With her defeat, Peach was free to take over. Peach immediately entered the spiritual distortion, grouping with Belle within. Despite her outrage at seeing Mima in a possessed state, Momo was unable to wrest control back from Peach. She saw Rin attacking a giant fox spirit right in Peach's back, but to her horror, Rin was easily defeated, and a spirit was channelled into her. However, a glimmer of hope came by when Hana saved another girl from being a victim. After Hana hit Belle straight in the face, Peach and Pearl stood back as Belle took it personally. This turned out to be Belle's undoing, as Hana defeated her before fainting from exhaustion... but even though Hana was down, Mima herself was fine and immediately turned her guns to Peach and Pearl. Momo ended up welcoming the last shot to Peach's face.
After being treated, Momo is called by Mima, Rin, Hana, and another green-haired girl she had seen once. They formed a group with the sole goal to hold off the giant fox spirit. [to be continued]
