"I've brought my books! Hope that's alright."

This article has recently been converted to the new character-focused layout but it needs a lore enthusiast to help fill-out the sections. In addition, 'Relations trivia' and 'Lore trivia' have been moved here but need restructuring into article content - lore is no longer trivia.

If you're eagar to help but would like to reference a completed character article: Aurelion Sol, Soraka, Jinx and Viego are excellent.

A former doll transformed and brought to life by magic, Gwen wields the very tools that once created her. She carries the weight of her maker’s maker’s love with every step, taking nothing for granted. At her command is the Hallowed Mist, an ancient and protective magic that has blessed Gwen’s scissors, needles, and sewing thread. So much is new to her, but Gwen remains joyfully determined to fight for the good that survives in a broken world.

  • Gwen can magically change the size of her scissors at will to be any size she wants.[4]
  • Gwen was brought to life shortly after the events of Ruination.[3]
