General

Development

  • Evelynn's voice actress is uncredited and anonymous.
  • Her name comes from Norman French Aveline, diminutive of Germanic Ava, possibly from Proto-Germanic: afalan "strength", *agwjō "island", *ahwō "stream", or *awōn "grandmother".[1]
  • The exclamation mark that appears when Evelynn is spotted references the one from Metal Gear Solid.
    • The stealth rework itself was also inspired by it.
      • The same exclamation mark appeared when Rengar Rengar used Thrill of the Hunt Thrill of the Hunt to warn his enemies he is nearby, before it was replaced by a unique Icon resembling his eyes peeking through darkness during the Assassin update.
  • Her current title, "Agony's Embrace Agony's Embrace", was the name of her ultimate before her relaunch.
    • Her ultimate was also named "Widowmaker," which was her pre-relaunch title, during early reveals. However, the name was changed to Last Caress Last Caress later on.
  • After her lore ret-conning, Evelynn is the second emotion eater , after Tahm KenchSquare Tahm Kench, though:

Lore

  • She used to be linked to the Shadow Isles before her update,[2] although the Twisted Treeline altars never had quotes dedicated to Evelynn out of a desire to not reveal much about her.
  • She is referred to as a demon demon, probably inspired by Mesopotamian underworld goddess Ereshkigal & Semitic nocturnal figure Lilith, who in turn inspires the Succubus.
  • She is the same Horned Woman that murdered Vayne's Vayne's parents, before smiling menacingly at the young Vayne and disappearing. This event becomes what turns Vayne into the merciless monster hunter she is today.

Quotes

  • Her quote "The night is my veil" remained after her update.
  • "Misery loves whatever I tell it to" alludes former quote and popular refrain "Misery loves company".
  • "Girls just wanna tear your throat out with their teeth" references Cyndi Lauper's song "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".
