After weeks of speculation and teasers, Riot Games has finally revealed the next champion to join League of Legends’ ever-expanding roster of playable characters. Enter Bel’Veth, the God of Oblivion. She’s set to be the newest Void-based jungler to hit Summoner’s Rift.

In a new cinematic, fans got their first glance at the new champion when Kai’Sa comes face-to-face with the latest threat to the kingdoms of Runeterra. The trailer gave a frightening glimpse into what could be in store as Kai’Sa struggles against the vast power that the Empress of the Void brings.

Commanding the swarm to do her bidding, Bel’Veth was a leader “born from the combined memories, experiences, and emotions of an entire devoured port city and its outlying ocean,” with a mind holding millions of years of knowledge from the many eons that the Void existed. She aims to absorb all living creatures into her Lavender Sea, destroying the world of Runeterra and replacing it with herself. Remember, she isn’t just a leader of the Void. She is the Void.

League fans still don’t have a ton of official information about Bel’Veth just yet. There have been, however, some leaks around the champion, including her in-game model and her full ability set.

Like the cinematic shows, Bel’Veth potentially has two forms at her disposal: her humanoid form and her full, corrupted monster form. She also supposedly changes into the monster form during her ultimate ability, Endless Banquet. The empress might even have the Void swarm at her disposal as she tries to help players climb the solo queue ladder and bring all life under her wings.

Riot said more details about Bel’Veth should be released next week.
