Lunar Beasts is a series of alternate future/universe skins in League of Legends. Set in the year 2057, champions are chosen by Lunar Gods to entertain Lunar Beasts to ensure a prosperous new year.
- Each year, a mischievous Lunar Beast arrives in the mortal realm, drawn to the New Year's celebrations. And each year, the corresponding Lunar God selects a squad of chosen champions to lead the beast on a merry chase and protect the city from the creature's playful rampage. The Lunar Parade is a beloved part of the New Year's festivities and the Beast itself brings good luck once it has been lulled to rest by the squad's efforts. When a Lunar Beast is well-entertained and well-rested, it always signals a prosperous New Year!
- The Ox Squad
The leader of Ox Clan, Alistar keeps his stubborn squad in line with his reliability and gruff approval. A bit quick to anger with some squad members' bull-headedness, he's determined that nothing and no one will derail this Lunar New Year festival, or Ox Clan's plan to make it a flawless celebration.
Everyone was shocked when Annie was chosen as Ox Clan's tech operative. A precocious prodigy, Annie serves as the team's recon strategist, making sure the parade route is clear of civilians.
Aphelios stays quiet, preferring to worship the Bull God according to obscure “old ways” that are unfamiliar to the rest of his squad. His teammates are welcoming, if curious, but have yet to realize that Aphelios and his sister Alune are actually the Bull God's progeny, placed among the squad to face this year's Lunar Beast.
Darius' imposing presence and determination to lead by example cause occasional tension between him and Alistar, the actual leader of the squad. Despite how overbearing he can be, Darius is a strong and steadfast friend to his teammates and a rock for the whole Clan.
Fiora keeps mostly to herself, determined to reclaim her family's honor from her father's failure as a member of the last Ox Squad. She thinks the rest of the squad doesn't take their duties seriously enough, and her determination to avoid another disastrous New Year makes her seem standoffish and cold to her teammates.
Long days of community service and long nights of tactical planning have left Fiora not drained but energized. Her steely determination has hardened into foresight and loyalty. Whatever the Lunar Beast throws at them, Ox Squad knows Fiora has their back.
Jarvan IV's stubborn refusal to join Ox Clan only relented to his father's stubborn insistence. Though he tries his best to shirk the celebrity status that comes with the role, Jarvan comes from a long line of philanthropists, and has found himself caught up in the thrill of bringing businesslike efficiency to the biggest community event of the year.
A former street tough recruited by the Bull God himself, Miss Fortune was persuaded to join by fame and glory. She's here to prove not just that the Ox Clan is the best squad, but that whatever squad that has her as a member is the best. Restless and proud, Miss Fortune is eager to show off her skills at the Lunar New Year celebration.
- Former Squad members
Former leader of a past Lunar Ox Squad, Viego decided that they would fight the Lunar Beast and actually defeat it. His plan ended in tragedy as he watched the rest of his squad be devoured-- including his wife. Viego has stewed in bitterness over these losses for years, blaming everyone but himself -- including this year's Lunar Ox Squad.
