Infernal is a series of alternate future/universe skins in League of Legends. Set in a setting where the Ashen Lord has been summoned and transformed the world into a land of ashes, cinders and fire.
- Ashen Lord
Pyromancer cultists unwisely summoned the god of fire and ruin—the Ashen Lord—into the world hoping to control his power. Instead, he unleashed his infernal legions to remake all things in his image: cinder, ash, and death.
A djinn summoned from the world below, the Infernal known as Akali will burn her patron's enemies to cinders… though the cost for such service is always dire.
Leading from the front of the Infernal invasion, Alistar is a lumbering juggernaut whose ponderous movements bely unimaginable strength and speed. Dozens of armies have fallen before him, overwhelmed suddenly and completely by his power.
When ancient pyromancers unleashed the malevolent Infernals upon the world, they also unintentionally summoned younger, lonelier creatures. A mere spark compared to the fiery monsters now ravaging the land, Amumu seeks only friendship… unwittingly incinerating all those he touches.
Chief among the lesser Infernals is Diana, a blistering elemental terror sent ahead of the main invasion forces to assassinate key officials and set cities ablaze. Even her kin regard her methods as extreme, and she has been rightly elevated for it.
A black-hearted monstrosity leading the hellish Infernal hordes, Galio is titanic even by the standards of his fiery kin. His steps melt the very bedrock beneath him, swallowing entire armies without so much as a second thought.
The disciples of Karthus usher this infernal harbinger into the world by singing his discordant chorus, a pledge that beckons pillars of flame unto them. On his arrival, the deathsinger's chant summons columns of hellfire that descend from the heavens above. Few live to tell of the dirge they heard before flames swept the land.
A playful spirit of fire, Kennen is not a malevolent being, but can't help igniting his surroundings while zipping about. His lightning quick movements wreak havoc upon any village unfortunate enough to entice the impish spirit to visit.
An ancient, Infernal general who attacks without feeling or remorse, Mordekaiser raises the incinerated corpses of his victims as soldiers for his own vast armies. They sweep across the world like a burning plague, annihilating all life.
The greater Infernals are somehow even more cruel and hateful than their lesser counterparts, and Nasus is no exception. A three-headed monstrosity raised from some far-flung, hellish abyss, he withers life with his merest touch… then burns it away.
An unstoppable warbeast drummed up from the Infernal hordes, Rammus simply chooses a direction and begins spinning—through homes, armies, and nations alike, burning everything to ashes.
What is an Infernal but the screams beckoning from the darkest corners of mortal imagination? For centuries they were considered nothing more than myth—and yet, now, monstrosities such as Renekton roam freely, punishing us all for the last fleeting gasp of our own hubris.
An Infernal warrior risen from the raging depths of the underworld, Shen appears on battlefields in the blink of an eye, shielding his fellow titans from even the most well-organized resistance.
The Infernal Varus rips massive gouts of magma from the foundation of the earth, before firing them in volleys at those who would fight back against him. Each arrow lands with the ferocity of an exploding volcano, reducing all resistance to ash.
Scarce is known of Vel'Koz, owing to the fact that most who witness him combust at his mere presence. What is known, however, is that this cataclysmic titan can level entire civilizations with his incinerating gaze, leaving only smouldering ruin. Woe be to those fixed in the behemoth's infernal gaze, for there will be no remains left to bury.
The Ashen Lord's hounds blaze with the fires of unspeakable molten hellscapes, and at their head is Warwick, the Firefang. Scouring the earth for anything untouched by flame, he relentlessly hunts the survivors of Infernal attacks, reducing them to sputtering cinders.
A greater Infernal whose power is drawn from the molten rock bubbling beneath the earth, Wukong's rage causes mountains to split, lava to rain from the sky, and rivers to become blackened glass. Still, he will never back down from any challenge—and this, perhaps, will be the key to his defeat.
A highly unstable creature born from roiling magma, Xerath possesses a keen intellect, awaiting the day he might ascend through the ranks of the Infernal war machine, and usurp the Ashen Lord himself. For now his ambitions remain secret, but… soon… soon…
- Consumed by the Infernals
Once a steward of the gentle treefolk, Maokai was consumed along with his people when the Infernals ravaged the world. Now, brimming with rage, he seeks only to spread his anger and misery to anything that crosses his path.
Once a forest nymph, Zyra was consumed by the Infernals' burning touch. Now, she seeks nothing more than to spread wildfire throughout the forests and valleys of her dying world.
- Shadowfire Temple
A young, talented pyromancer from the Shadowfire Temple, Ahri gave up her quiet life when a faction of extremists unleashed the burning horrors of the Ashen Lord. Now she uses her fire magic to fight against them, even though all hope seems lost.
When the Ashen Lord rose, high priests of the Shadowfire Temple called upon their own god to fend off the all-consuming Infernals. They neglected, however, to account for the being's twin aspects: Destruction, and Rebirth. Kindred will fight the flames, but there may be a bitter price to pay before the end…
As great mountains were ripped from their foundations during the rise of the Ashen Lord, from deep beneath them climbed strange, obsidian creatures, freed for the first time after thousands of years. They seem intent on stopping the Infernals, and are uniquely suited to defeating them.
