Riot today dropped a teaser for the next League of Legends champion, already revealed through leaks to be a woman named "Jinx." Apparently, Jinx is a newcomer to Piltover's criminal scene, meaning she's a big ol' headache right now for Vi and Caitlyn. In the teaser, we learn about her through Vi's perspective, and to quote the Allstate insurance ads: "Mayhem is everywhere."
We actually first saw Jinx when the Pool Party skins came out, when she popped up in the group splash art in a sort of first-person perspective. Yes, she's cute, but she's also kind of a horrible person. In Vi's description of her, we learn that she likes to create a lot of chaos, just for the fun of it, and Jinx doesn't much care who gets hurt. Here's the text from the teaser.
The name’s Vi. I’m an enforcer. And this is my town - Piltover. They call this place the City of Progress - or they did until she showed up.
Her name is Jinx. That’s what they call her, anyway. No one knows who she is, or where she came from. This scrawny pain in the neck shows up one day, firing heavy guns in the air. And laughing – always with the laugh. I can’t stand her.
Everything changed the day she arrived in town. They might as well call it the City of Crime. Panic among the people. Chaos in the streets. Mayhem everywhere you look.
The worst part is: none of it makes any sense. Ask her why she’s doing it, and she’ll give you a million different reasons. But the only one that matters is:
She’s having fun.
Piltover is just a plaything to her. She’s enjoying the time of her life, and she doesn’t care who gets hurt.
Well, I’m here to shut down the party.
It doesn’t matter what she wants. I don’t care what her sob story is. I’m gonna put her away for a long, long time. And right before I do, I promise you: I’m gonna wipe that stupid grin off her face.
Scary girl, if only for her Overly Attached Girlfriend expression. The teaser images suggest that Jinx will use guns of some sort, which I find a tad disappointing, seeing as how the last champ was also a gunslinger type. We'll see how this works out.
Dig the wanted poster after the break.
