League of Legends’ next champion has knives for legs

League of Legends [official site] is forever adding new champions to its roster. Much like I add lip balms and perfumes to my dresser because I hoard them, Riot Games creates and adds new characters every so often because they can and people love to purchase skins for them. Hell, I don’t even play that often and I’m tempted by Arcade Miss Fortune and Jinx. So, there’s another champion on her way, with that in mind, and her name is Camille.

Riot Games introduced Camille by way of a special comic on the official League of Legend site. It’s called Camille: Severed Ties, and it follows her as she kills a criminal right in front of his lover. So it’s safe to assume she’s some sort of assassin or something like that. That’s not the weird part, however. Take a look at her legs. They’re…swords?

It’s possible Camille is all mechanical, especially since she seems to be zipping about on wires with the greatest of ease like she does and is apparently on the look for bad guys. More importantly, Camille is the name of Josh Homme’s daughter, who will more than likely grow up to be a rocker when she goes up, and that is AWESOME.

Unfortunately, the teaser is all anyone has to go by currently when it comes to Camille, but you know we’re about to see some sort of full, proper introduction soon. It’s Riot Games. That’s what they do. In the meantime, feel free to over-analyze the comic.

    It would be a missed opportunity not to have a Sofia Boutella skin.

    Her ultimate ability is shooting her girlfriend dead through a door.

    I hate to be the one to say this, but that’s a ridiculous character design. Even for League of Legends.

    I mean, seriously? Sword legs?

      Beats leg swords I guess.

      A late game upgrade replaces them with pens.

      Dude, watch Kingsman! It’ll change your whole world when it comes to sword legs!

      • Arkayjiya says:

        I think it’s a little too specific to change his world but I agree, Kingsman makes sword-leg look reeaaaally awesome.

    • Konservenknilch says:

      Must be pretty awkward to walk with these.

      • Ghostwise says:

        If people can walk wearing stilettos, then surely they can walk using swords ? For starters, it’s bigger.

    • RedMattis says:

      No worse than Elise. Must be awkward when their ‘feet’ get stuck in the ground though. :D

    • GGiyo says:

      Inspired by a certain Kingsman:The secret service villain? Not exactly ridiculous.

    • chromedbustop says:

      I’m inclined to agree.

      And to anyone who brings up Kingsman, yes, I did see the movie. That’s what made me realize how stupid swords for legs would be. Kind of like the gun-swords from the Final Fantasy series.

    She’s giving that doleful looking guy a haircut. Very kind!
