  • After an extended demonstration period, the League of Legends Wiki is moving forward with its planned restructuring of Character pages.
  • Character pages will now be structured more similarly to the character pages of other Fandoms and will provide editor-written overviews of important stories and relationships.
  • A champion's Biography will now be found on a dedicated article - as with other story articles.
  • Lore and Relations trivia has been moved here from Akali/Trivia, and should only be found here henceforth.
  • The League of Legends Wiki is stepping into new territory with these truly character-focused articles - so any and all contributions would be appreciated!

Abandoning the Kinkou Order and her title of the Fist of Shadow, Akali Akali now strikes alone, ready to be the deadly weapon her people need. Though she holds onto all she learned from her master Shen, she has pledged to defend Ionia from its enemies, one kill at a time. Akali may strike in silence, but her message will be heard loud and clear: fear the assassin with no master.

Character blurb
MISSING Current version.
Added.
"The Fist of Shadow strikes from the cover of death itself. Do not impede the balance."
A prodigy in the fighting arts, Akali is a member of the martial order known as the Kinkou. She succeeds her mother as the Fist of Shadow, entrusted with the sacred duty to end those who would bring imbalance to her homeland. While some find her methods extreme, Akali is judicious in maintaining harmony across Ionia.
