"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.

Master Yi Master Yi has tempered his body and sharpened his mind, so that thought and action have become almost as one. Though he chooses to enter into violence only as a last resort, the grace and speed of his blade ensures resolution is always swift. As one of the last living practitioners of the Ionia Crest icon.png Ionian art of Wuju, Yi has devoted his life to continuing the legacy of his people—scrutinizing potential new disciples with the Seven Lenses of Insight to identify the most worthy among them.

Trivia

  • The fact that Wukong Wukong was trained under Master Yi is a possible reference to Sun Wukong's original master, Subhuti, or Wukong's more famous master during his pilgrimage to the West, the historical Chinese Buddhist pilgrim Xuanzang, who contributed greatly to the translation of Buddhist texts into Chinese, thus earning the byname Tripitaka त्रिपिटक (Mandarin: 三藏 Sānzàng), after the Pali canon.
