After unlocking the secrets of time travel, these champions are thrust into a far-flung dystopian future. While Chrono-enforcers relentlessly pursue them across time and space, a small few have escaped into history—taking their technology along for the ride.

The Rememberancers

  • Fiora PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Fiora
    Fiora joined the Chrono-Enforcers at a young age under the tutelage of her father. When a conflict with a temporal fugitive left him disgraced, her future was thrown into doubt, but Fiora endured.

  • Lucian PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Lucian
    A dedicated chrono-enforcer, Lucian joined the Remembrancers when he lost his wife, Senna, in an errant Praetorian attack. Now, he searches for her while bringing justice to the reckless time travelers who would cavalierly tear holes in space-time.
    • Lucian PrestigePulsefireCircle Pulsefire Lucian Prestige Edition
      Through his work in bringing their opponents to justice, Lucian earned the personal attention and gratitude of Thresh, leader of the Remembrancers. Armed with special modifications to his Pulsefire suit, Lucian embarks on his relentless pursuit across timelines. Through it all, however, he can't shake the feeling that this upgrade isn't all it seems...
  • Pantheon PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Pantheon
    The sole survivor from a timeline devoured by Praetorians, Pantheon refused to succumb when the marauders ran him through and left him for dead. He now dons the Pulsefire suit to hunt down those who would dare risk creating the anomalies that unleash the robotic hordes upon time and space.
  • Thresh PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Thresh
    As head of the Remembrancers, Thresh usually remains behind the scenes pulling the chains of time rather than stepping into the stream himself. Yet recent events have caused him to leave his temporal citadel, bringing his pulsefire lantern to bear.
    • Thresh PrestigePulsefireCircle Pulsefire Thresh Prestige Edition
      As paradoxes multiply and more rogue agents rebel against the grasp of the chrono-enforcers, Thresh, as commander of the Rembrancers, takes matters into his own hands. He must not yield control of time to these interlopers… nor to the growing Praetorian threat.
Chrono Fugitives
  • Ekko PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Ekko
    A time fugitive who built his Pulsefire suit from scratch, Ekko improved on the Remembrancers' technology, crafting a modified Chronobreak device that allows him to make short temporal jumps, create time breaks within a singular timeline, and to collapse them all into a single, anomaly-free singularity.
  • Ezreal PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Ezreal

  • Twisted Fate PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Twisted Fate
    Swindling his way past the chrono-enforcers, Twisted Fate has made himself known by pulling off grand heists, across various timelines. Always just moments ahead of the law, with stolen riches in his pocket, he knows the alleyways of time make for the quickest of getaways…
Other Chrono Users
  • Riven PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Riven
    A worshipper of temporal purity, Riven knows there are many others who would rather see time manipulated in their favor. These heretics give her blade purpose—she can only find true solace in eliminating all who would disturb the natural order.
  • Shen PulsefireCircle Pulsefire Shen
    Over the millennia, Shen has been called many names: warlord, trespasser, conqueror. Even so, his mission to build an army for the ages seems never-ending. Seeking only the smartest and the strongest to join his ranks, he remains untroubled by emotion, casting his timeless gaze over those with hidden potential.


History

The Rememberancers

In the Dystopian Timeline of Post-Cog Era Piltover, a highly regimented totalitarian police state has taken power. During these times the group known as The Remembrancers is tasked to manage the temporal spaces with Chrono-enforcers known as Pulsefire and observe for any temporal anomalies and changes to the timelines.

Pulsefire Ezreal

By Devon 'Runaan' Giehl

Skins typically don't have canon lore, but there's a small 'alternate universe' storyline for Pulsefire Ezreal. I posted this on the EU forums so I'll give the same short summary of the idea here:

In my mind, a couple years from 'now' in Runeterra, Ezreal's wanderlust leads him down into the Southern Wastes, where he stumbles into a time warp (rampant, chaotic magic down there and all). He emerges in the distant, war-torn future, where Piltovan and Zaunite technology has advanced far beyond anything he'd ever imagined - but has wrought utter destruction across Valoran. He finds the Pulsefire armor at a crash site and discovers that it evolves to fit his form (and, of course, meets the AI named PEARL). Ezreal takes the Pulsefire armor back through the warp in the hopes of preventing such a future from ever happening, and... well, of course, to show off his totally superior technology to the rest of the League's champions. 'Cause he's Ezreal.

NOT ON HER WATCH[1]

Time is a way to escape. From the mundanity of a life. From the limitations of an era.
From the law.
And when it comes to running from the law, she doesn't have time for that.

The legendary time-law enforcer, feared in every age. Time is a fragile enigma under her protection, and those who dare to break its boundaries have inevitably met with the end of her barrel.

One Simple Rule

Pulsefire Shen, Riven and Twisted Fate

Pulsefire 2018[2]

Pulsefire Shen
To build an army for the ages, you must search across time.

Pulsefire Riven
We will defend time from these heretics.

Pulsefire Twisted Fate
The alleys of time make for a quick getaway.
