So, this'll be my first champion suggestion! Yippee! And y'all better like it, too, I spent FOREVER filling out and researching every little detail I could fill out on this. I imagine it's pretty much all complete except for the images, and I'm no artist! So yeah, that won't be turning up. xD

I was largely attempting to find unusual forms of scaling for this champion, hence the quirky acid pool and ultimate mechanics. You guys tell me if any of the stats are outta whack - I was pretty much going blind here as I'm not a high level player myself. I do have some awareness of balance so I tried to make sure her abilities didn't synergize with each other too much but wasn't overly complicated. Thinking of abilities that fit her overall theme of pestilence and decay also was a little tricky, but I hope I pulled it off well enough.

As for her appearance... I envisioned that Neie was actually a sentient sword from the Void (shapeshifter, and all that...) who killed and then revived the body of a young woman for its own purposes. The sword itself is fairly plain with black handle and silver blade but with a single eye embedded in the middle of it. And the woman holding it looked clearly like a zombie, boasting rotting flesh and tattered clothing (enough to give her some sex appeal, I imagine, haha), but not particularly interested in brains; more exhibiting the behaviour of a creature much like Cho'Gath. Loathing of everything life stands for.
