Yasuo is an Ionian swordsman who has the ability to use the air against his foes.

The game’s titular character, Viego, is in the game. Once a ruler of Camavor, Viego died 1,000 years ago in the event known as the Ruination, where he attempted to bring his dead wife back to life. Despite his failure all those years ago, Viego is still wreaking havoc around Runeterra, spreading Black Mist, tainting its lands and people with corruption in hopes that he can find a way to bring his partner back to life.
