So this is an attempt at a champion that isn't simply capable of a hybrid-damage build, but is given incentives to pursue such a build. The major problem with building hybrid damage on current champions with hybrid scaling is that there is no efficient way to build both armor and magic penetration. This means that mid-late game your damage falls off against anyone who is not a full-carry once they have built decent amounts of both armor and magic resistance. This is further compounded by the need to get some defense of your own, meaning your options for damage items is limited. As such, 'hybrid' champions will usually focus on building one type of damage stat to make penetration purchases less awkward, and allow the luxury of more than one defensive buy. Kayle is currently the best champion for a true hybrid damage build simply because her passive allows her to shred both lines of resistances simultaneously, allowing her to damage to scale well into late game against all enemies.
Like Kayle and other 'hybrid' champions, Aelia can function well by focusing solely into AP or AD, but misses out on a lot of potential within her kite. Her passive allows the two or three hybrid damage items she picks up to be more slot efficient than they would be on other champs, allowing her damage to scale well into late game against larger defensive numbers without sacrificing too much defense herself. The rest of her kite is structured like an auto-attack reliant duelist, with most of her spell's damage being magic but still heavily tied into auto attacking constantly (to make AD purchases that much more inticing).
Also, there's fun-times lore and quotes at the bottom. Hope you enjoy those as much as I did writing them!
On a distant continent of Runeterra lies an ancient empire known as Rubeleca. They have, for centuries, been on a military campaign for total domination of the world. Backed by powerful magic innate to the royal bloodline, Rubeleca succeeded in gaining complete control of their whole continent. But their lust for conquest was not nearly sated, and so they turned their eyes to Valoran. King Turdur Erath sent his invasion fleet to over the sea, confidant that they would sweep quickly through whatever unfortunate nation they happened upon.
However his haste proved to be his first error. The fleet made landfall in early summer on the eastern shore of Valoren, and found that Noxus forces were waiting for them eagerly. The fleet was forced to retreat, but that was not the end of it. Turdur was thoroughly surprised at the ease with which he had been repelled, but not deterred in the slightest. He gathered the entire royal family of the Robin Throne and set off for a second, full-force invasion. Among them was prince Jordis and princess Aelia, who together with their armies had felled an entire nation and it’s emperor within two days. All were confident that with the concentrated power of the Robin Throne’s lineage they would seize control of the war they had started.
But it was not to be. When the ships sighted the Noxian shore, they were again greeted Noxus soldiers. Only this time, Darius himself was at the helm of the defence. The battle was as swift as the Robin King had expected, but not in their favour. Turdur was decapitated by Darius, and Aelia could do nothing but watch as her father’s head was freed from its perch and fell to the ground. She too would have been slain were it not for the sacrifice of her brother Jordis. Aelia managed to escape with her life, but with almost the entire Erath lineage killed, the Rubelecan Empire crumbled; the nations they had previously subdued took advantage of the sudden vacuum of power and dismantled everything from the bottom up.
The rebel forces burned the capitol to the ground, securing the death of the Robin Throne. Without crown or family, Aelia stole away back to Valoran, initially to exact revenge upon Noxus. But she made a fated encounter. It was a renegade named Riven, who was once a child of war like herself. She learned much of Noxus from her, but she also learned more. She learned that Demacia stood in direct opposition to Noxus, and also of the war the two were embroiled in. But more importantly, she learned of the strength and hope that Riven had found, despite her circumstances. Aelia was inspired, and changed her vow of revenge to one of justice. She would do whatever she could to end the Noxus-Demacia conflict and spare both the ruin that she had seen her father bring to her own nation.
