In the vast darkness of space are born terrible, beautiful things—Cosmic creatures of sublime love, and the unknowable monstrosities of the Dark Star. These are the children of silent gods, and they are finally coming home.[1]

Corrupted Celestials
  • Jhin DarkCosmicCircle Dark Cosmic Jhin
    Jhin was an interstellar entity, consumed by the Dark Star and given new purpose. Now his ageless mind is infected by visions of omnipotence, and consumed by an insatiable hunger. He scours entire regions of space seemingly on a whim, using the remnants to create bizarre, silent objets d'art.
  • Lux DarkCosmicCircle Dark Cosmic Lux
    Once the right hand of Queen Ashe, Lux embraced the darkness in her heart, answering the mad call of the Dark Star.

For she now knows her true fate—to reign as Queen of a Dark Court, and rightful master of the Dark Star.
  • Mordekaiser DarkStarCircle Dark Star Mordekaiser
    Chromaskins Chromas: Antimatter, Emerald, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire
    Once a member of the Cosmic Court, Mordekaiser vanished from known space for an epoch—until now. Reborn and returned from an unknown destruction, Mordekaiser seems bent on unmaking the kingdoms of stars and light he once built. Though he still bears his Cosmic armor, the mind and figure within has been twisted and reforged to know only hatred and destruction.
Cosmic Corruptants
  • Cho'Gath DarkStarCircle Dark Star Cho'Gath
    Spawned from the remnants of a star system crippled by famine, Cho'Gath is driven to feed on any celestial body that crosses his path. These feasts swirl into the twin black holes at his heart—as endless and ageless as his hunger.
  • Jarvan IV DarkStarCircle Dark Star Jarvan IV
    Chromaskins Chromas: Antimatter
    A mortal emperor unbound by the destruction of his world, Jarvan's essence has since been reforged by the ageless energies of deep space. His humanity and his people now lost forever, he stands ready to welcome the Dark Star incursion, in the final subjugation of all existence.
  • Karma DarkStarCircle Dark Star Karma
    Chromaskins Chromas: Aquamarine, Meteorite, Pearl, Peridot, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Turquoise
    Karma was a galaxy-spanning civilization dedicated to pacifism and personal enlightenment, unceremoniously erased from reality and reborn as a star-consuming horror. Devouring entire galactic systems, she enforces a dread order upon the cosmos, meditating in the vast oceans of emptiness where once there were stars.
  • Kha'Zix DarkStarCircle Dark Star Kha'Zix
    The hunger of the abyss, Kha'Zix is an alien horror whose ceaseless appetite feeds the Dark Star. Appearing before planets like a titanic locust, it devours all it encounters—the power of a hundred thousand stars fueling its evolution into an ever-greater threat.
  • Malphite DarkStarCircle Dark Star Malphite
    The remnants of a once lush and enormous exo-planet, the Dark Star consumed and reformed the broken cluster of planetary debris into a twisted consciousness, ever pulling others into its orbit, and unleashing oblivion upon all who cross its path.
    • Malphite PrestigeDarkStarCircle Dark Star Malphite Prestige Edition
      Gilded by the Dark Star's touch and empowered through its radiance, Malphite barrels across space, demolishing entire systems and consuming the broken remnants into his immense and twisted form.
  • Orianna DarkStarCircle Dark Star Orianna
    Chromaskins Chromas: Antimatter
    Born out of the remnants of a magnificently advanced system, Orianna serves the Dark Star with meticulous precision. She dances across galaxies in an endlessly horrifying performance, the only witness is the silent trail of destruction left in her wake.
  • Rhaast OdysseyCircle Dark Star Rhaast
    Presenting himself as the “voice” of the ubiquitous organic fuel known as ora, Rhaast is a bloodthirsty monstrosity sealed inside an ancient, alien scythe. Unlike Kayn OdysseyCircle Kayn, he does not particularly care about spectacle or showmanship—he mainly just likes to kill things. In this way, the two share an uneasy alliance, with Kayn wanting to harvest as much ora as possible, and Rhaast wanting to snuff out as much life from the universe as he can. Bound for untold eons in various planetary backwaters, Rhaast has had plenty of time to consider his own masters’ true plans for the universe, beyond all the indiscriminate murder, and he doesn't mind holding off on them for now...
  • Shaco DarkStarCircle Dark Star Shaco
    Chromaskins Chromas: Catseye, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby
    Shaco was once a region of space known for raucous celebration, wiped clean by the Dark Star and reborn into the mocking visage of a jester. His twisted cackling reaches inhabited systems long before he does, provoking visions of destruction, and societal breakdowns that will soon feed his endless hunger.
  • Thresh DarkStarCircle Dark Star Thresh
    Chromaskins Chromas: Antimatter
    A cosmic nightmare who worships the all-consuming Dark Star, Thresh vows to feed the whole of existence to his “god” until all matter, time, and thought are erased. His work will be complete when nothing remains, freeing him to finally leap into the singularity and become one with the end of the universe.
  • Varus DarkStarCircle Dark Star Varus
    Chromaskins Chromas: Antimatter
    An interstellar titan containing multitudes within his eldritch mind, Varus serves the all-consuming Dark Star, a dread singularity born in the darkness of deep space. His arrival is a cataclysmic extinction event, erasing entire planetary systems as if they were never there.
  • Xerath DarkStarCircle Dark Star Xerath
    Chromaskins Chromas: Antimatter, Emerald, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire
    As the Dark Star continued on its path across space, it passed through a vibrant system orbiting a supergiant star. Consuming all life and light as it passed , the Dark Star twisted the supergiant into a wrathful corruptant. Thus, Xerath was born—a dark being of malice and annihilation.
