Main article: Kai'Sa (Development)
  • Kai'Sa is voiced by Natasha Loring.
  • She was the first champion released in 2018.
  • During development, she was called Void ADC or "JohnClick", which is a play on John Wick.[1][2]
  • Her placeholder model was Lucian's Lucian's model colored purple.[3]
  • Initial concepts portrayed her as:[4]
    • An undead former member of Lucian's Lucian's "Purifiers".
    • A Vampire hunter turned Vampire.
    • A Void-enhanced human hunting Voidborn.
  • Her suit's "wings" used to be separate void creatures that were tagging along on her shoulders, but later on, it was decided to make them part of the creature that is her suit.[5]
  • The symbiotic relationship is possibly inspired by Ryūko Matoi & Senketsu from the anime "Kill la Kill".
  • The teaser released for Kai'Sa Kai'Sa during patch V8.3 had Void Seeker Void Seeker appear from the wall to execute the Rift Herald Rift Herald when it despawned.
  • The original design goal was to create a run-and-gun feel marksman.[6]
  • Several scrapped spells tested on Kai'Sa include:[7][8]
    • An iteration of Killer Instinct Killer Instinct that was on her E and had a cooldown of 8 seconds but didn't provide her with a shield.
    • A flashbang like ability that whited out the opponent's screen.
    • An iteration where her basic attacks were split into 5 slow moving projectiles, each did a fifth of her regular damage, and was similar to Life Form Disintegration Ray Life Form Disintegration Ray.
  • Her ultimate had originally belonged to Xayah Xayah, but had no condition and would forcibly return her to her starting position after a delay.[9]
  • Kai'Sa and Camille Camille were originally one champion named Husk, the Hive Commander, a female mercenary from Zaun who was once Caitlyn's Caitlyn's partner before she defected after Caitlyn Caitlyn paralyzed her in a shootout.[10]
  • One of the potential narrative directions that could have been taken with Kai'Sa Kai'Sa was that she was a part of a new generation of Void creatures trying to emulate humans.[11]
  • One of her narrative directions was to introduce Kassadin's Kassadin's missing daughter to the game as a playable champion.[12]
    • Despite this, Kai'Sa and Kassadin are not confirmed to be related due to not reuniting in the lore yet.[13]
  • Kai'Sa is the first character that was already established in lore before becoming a champion. The success of her release encouraged the development of more lore characters such as Yone Yone and Senna Senna.

Main article: Kai'Sa (Character)
  • She is around 20 years old.
    • She was 10 when she fell into the Void tunnel and has stayed there for about 10 years.
  • Kai'Sa is 169.6 cm (5’6”) in height like her K/DA counterpart K/DA counterpart.
  • Kaisa is her given name, Kai'Sa is her adopted Void name.
  • Her symbiote can sustain her through the Void-spawns they kill by absorbing their essence, but that isn't really pleasing to her. After the earthquake she unwittingly caused, she scavenged leftover food from castaway sources in the catacombs— water skins, rotting fruit, etc. Now that she can get out from the underground, she likes eating what she can find around Shurima Shurima, preferably peaches. But the suit has to feed too, and she is somewhat fearful of what it might do if she doesn't continue to hunt and sustain it.
    • Due to her symbiote, Kai'Sa is stronger than normal humans while gaining abilities like blasting destructive energy destructive energy, especially when wearing her helmet like empowered senses (like special vision that is either thermoreception or X-ray vision).
  • Despite common belief, Kaisa was never trapped in the Void itself, rather willingly stayed within a complex underground tunnel system between the massive Void rift that caused the earthquake of her lore and the surface of the Sai desert, sculpted through years by the spawns that breach from the rift.
  • The lines that decorate her face are tribal marks made out of Voidborn blood.
  • Unlike other beings exposed to the Void's influence, Kaisa was able to avoid its seething madness thanks to her suit's helmet, which allows her to safely remain within the vicinity of Void rifts.
  • It has been theorised that the creature whose part would later become her second skin belonged to the same species as Kha'Zix Kha'Zix.
    • One of her quotes to him is "I know your tricks".
    • Both the symbiote and Kha'zix evolve to become stronger.
      • Both have the potential to become invisible and shoot more projectiles after certain evolutions.
