Isolde in League of Legends: what we know so far and when we can come to expect this character core to the latest string of Shadow Isles stories.
Isolde League of Legends: What We Know So Far
Isolde was once the most skilled seamstress from Camavor, the land Viego once ruled over, announcing Isolde as his queen once he fell in love with her.
The infatuation Viego felt for Isolde became too much to handle while also ruling over a kingdom, leading to an attempted coup and assassination attempt on Viego. The angered people of Camavor felt neglected, seeking change no matter how violent it had to be.
Isolde would be caught in the crossfire, being struck by the poisoned dagger planned for Viego. At the sight of his dear Isolde dying, Viego started the event known as the Ruination. Darkness we have seen on The Ruined Map in Ultimate Spellbook spread across Camavor, eventually further into the greater Runeterra area.
Isolde is responsible for the creation of Gwen, seeing as Gwen is just one of Isolde's scattered soul fragments possessed. into the doll that was once Gwen. The seamstress' impact and ties to other key Shadow Isles figures like Senna and Thresh are huge.
Riot setting up Isolde could mean that she may be a playable character one day, or Isolde is just a major lore character, which is still cool.
