Touched By The Eternal

Zoe OriginalSkin

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

The term Targonian Ascended refers to humans magically altered and usually 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.

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 sickness. Some have their lifespan dramatically increased, sometimes to the point of being immortal. However, these transcended beings can still bleed, be crippled, or even killed with the right weapon, magic, or overwhelming force. After each Targonian Ascended dies and during times of great needs, the Aspect finds a new host to replace their place.

Trivia

  • Aspects are the rulers of Targon Prime. They are divine beings and these Aspects are embodiments of different concepts.     
    • Currently, the Aspects of those concepts are known: Sun (represented by Leona OriginalSquare Leona), Moon (represented by Diana OriginalSquare Diana), War (represented by Pantheon OriginalSquare Pantheon), Change (represented by Zoe OriginalSquare Zoe), Protector (represented by Taric OriginalSquare Taric), Justice (represented by Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle and Morgana OriginalSquare Morgana).
  • The stars of the Constellation of War (which includes former and current stars) are called Areion, Astrea, Asose, Atreus and Zeonia.
  • 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.
    • Pantheon OriginalSquare Pantheon is an Aspect of War, however the body of Atreus is an Ascended human body. In a similar fashion Zoe OriginalSquare 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 Pantheon OriginalSquare Pantheon, overpower their hosts and assume full control of their bodies if they determine the mortal hosts are not good enough.
      • 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 Aatrox OriginalSquare 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.
  • Unlike other Targonian ascended, Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle and Morgana OriginalSquare Morgana are technically not hosts of the Aspect of Justice. They retained and share the power of the aspect due to their mother, who was the former ascended host of the aspect, being pregnant with them during her ascension. [1]
    • Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle and Morgana OriginalSquare Morgana were born with less celestial power than the other Aspects due to being only the children of an Aspect but have free will and a more unified identity.[2]
      • After her ascension, Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle fully establishes her as the next Aspect of Justice (so comparable to Diana OriginalSquare Diana/ Leona OriginalSquare Leona).[3]
  • The Aspects only can have 1 host at a time and keep their hosts alive as long as they need to remain, or until they are killed.[4]
    • While not being hosts of any Aspect, Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle and Morgana OriginalSquare Morgana are immortal due to their contact with the Aspect of Justice's power through their mother when she was pregnant with them and thus being shaped by two approaches of justice.
  • 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 Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle and Morgana OriginalSquare Morgana represent the Aspect of Justice, which was previously embodied by their mother.

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.
