Lore

Zoe OriginalSkin

A Targonian Ascended known as ZoeSquare Zoe (Aspect of Twilight).

The term Targonian Ascended refers to humans magically altered and made Aspect hosts of Targon Prime.

It is currently unknown how many of these Ascended ever came to be. Despite their small numbers, the Targonian Ascended remain among the most powerful beings on Runeterra, and have shaped the course of events throughout the planet's history.

History

The Aspects

The sky around Mount Targon shimmers with celestial bodies; the sun and moons, but also constellations, planets, fiery comets that streak the darkness, and auspicious arrangements of stars. The people living at the mountain's base believe these to be aspects of long-vanished stellar beings, creatures powerful and ancient on a scale beyond human comprehension. Some believe the power of these Aspects sometimes come down the mountain within the lambent bodies of those climbers found worthy. Such an occurrence is unimaginably rare and amazing tales of their exploits form around such individuals, who only ever appear once every few generations.

It is incredibly unusual for more than a single Aspect to walk the earth of Runeterra at any given time, so the tales of several Aspects manifesting has spread a pall of fear and uncertainty around the mountain. For what threat might be arising that requires the power of so many powerful beings to fight?

Physiology

Mount Targon Once In A Lifetime

Targonian Ascension ritual.

Blessed with incredible strength, speed and a strong affinity for mastering forms of magic. The Targonian Ascended are also virtually immune to pain and some have their lifespan dramatically increased, however they are not immortal. These transcended beings can bleed, be crippled, or even killed with the right weapon, magic, or overwhelming force. After each Targonian Ascended dies, the Aspect finds a new host to take its place.


Trivia

  • In the majority of the lore, the Targonian Ascended are referred to simply as Aspects. However, the two entities are fundamentally different, despite the same terminology use in stories.
    • PantheonSquare Pantheon is an Aspect of War, however the body of Atreus is an Ascended human body. In a similar fashion ZoeSquare Zoe is an Ascended human, but the Aspect of Twilight is the entity that gave her their power.
      • Most Targonian Ascended retain control of their bodies, while only being instinctively guided by their Aspects, though some Aspects, like PantheonSquare Pantheon, overpower their hosts and assume full control of their bodies.
      • Aspects can die and be reborn / replaced among mortals who ascended as their hosts. Atreus, whose body was taken by Pantheon, has the potential to become the new Aspect of War due to the Aspect itself dying in an Ascended body at the hands of AatroxSquare Aatrox. After which he regained the control of his body and the deceased Aspects powers. Atreus now opposes the divine as Pantheon reborn, his unbreakable will fueling the fallen Aspect’s weapons on the field of battle.
  • The Shuriman Ascended are more powerful and long-lived than those of Targon. This is because these Ascended are forcefully granted more cosmic energy than a Celestial would willingly grant to their chosen Aspects host.
  • The extent of the relationship between Mount Targon and Shurima remains unclear, however it is known that the Targonians guided the Shurimans in the creation of the Sun Disc.
  • The Power of an aspect has a chance to be transferred to the children of a female host who was pregnant whilst becoming an Ascended. Both KayleSquare Kayle and MorganaSquare Morgana represent the Aspect of Justice, which was previously embodied by their mother.
  • Aspects are the rulers of Targon Prime. They are divine beings and these Aspects are embodimets of different concepts.         
    • Each generation, an aspect from Targon Prime would choose mortals and imbue them with divine power, if they deemed worthy.
  • The stars of the Constellation of War (which includes former and current stars) are called Areion, Astrea, Asose, Atreus and Zeonia.

Diana's Theme ('Daylight's End')

Ask not the sun why she sets
why she shrouds her light away
or why she hides her glowing gaze
when night turns crimson gold to grey.

For silent falls the guilty sun
as day to dark does turn.
One simple truth she dare not speak
Her light can only blind and burn.

No mercy for the guilty
bring down their lying sun.
Blood so silver black by night
upon their faces pale white.

Cruel moon, bring the end
The dawn will never rise again.
