A wanderer from the celestial dimensions beyond Targon Crest icon.png Mount Targon, Soraka Soraka gave up her immortality to protect the mortal races from their own more violent instincts. She endeavors to spread the virtues of compassion and mercy to everyone she meets—even healing those who would wish harm upon her. And, for all Soraka has seen of this world's struggles, she still believes the people of Runeterra Crest icon.png Runeterra have yet to reach their full potential.

Background

Early Life

As the Starchild and one celestial being, Soraka Soraka and the inhabitants of the celestial realm watch the mortal realm and regarded the fledgling races of Runeterra Crest icon.png Runeterra with growing concern. The guidance and fates that had been woven into the night sky often went unseen—or worse, were misinterpreted by their simple mortal minds, leading to chaos, uncertainty, and suffering.

No longer able to merely watch, Soraka chose to descend to the mortal realm, determined to untangle the knots in the tapestry of the world. And so Soraka came to be, and set upon her journey to soothe the mortals she encountered.

Contemporary history

Soraka quickly learned the capaity for cruelty that the peoples of Runeterra possessed. Whether on the battlefields of inescapable conflicts, in the seedy underbellies of sprawling cities, or on the frontiers of the untamed wilderness beyond them, there seemed to be no end to the fighting, betrayal, and suffering Soraka witnessed. She watched, helpless, as mortals ignorantly broke the threads of destiny they could have woven together. Their lives were too short, she reasoned. They were simply unable to see the greater patterns, now lost.

But as Soraka lived among them, as one of them, trying to repair what little of the damage she could... something incredible and wholly unforeseen happened.

Soraka noticed a new, unintended design emerging—intertwined, and of a staggering complexity.

Unintended and wild, the mortals were forging new and unknown futures for themselves. From the celestial realm above, it had seemed like pure chaos; but with her new perspective, and blessed by the stars to stand against the erosion of time, Soraka now beheld an almost perfect beauty. Just as mortals had the deepest capacity for cruelty, so too did they possess infinite potential for kindness, and inspiration to rival anything among the stars.

Soraka realized her place was not to repair or replicate the celestial pattern. While a part of her craved the fixed, comforting destinies of the stars, she knew in her heart that static fates could not contain the unbridled, dynamic potential of mortality.

And so her work took on renewed vigor, driven to unlock the untapped possibilities of all she met. Soraka sought now to inspire and guide rather than shepherd, to see what unblazed trails each mortal would discover for themselves in their brief, radiant moment.

Recent events

Over the millennia, legends of the Starchild have filtered through all the lands of Runeterra. Some tribes of the Freljord Crest icon.png Freljord still speak of a far wanderer, a horned healer who soothed the icy bite of the most brutal winters. In the depths beneath Zaun Crest icon.png Zaun, rumors float of a lilac skinned medic who would purify weary lungs from the ravages of the alchemical Gray. In troubled Ionia Crest icon.png Ionia, the oldest myths of the Vastayashai'rei recall a seer who communed with the stars themselves, and called upon their light both to heal the wounded and scorch those who would do further harm to the First Lands.

Currently, Soraka calls the westernmost peaks of Targon Crest icon.png Targon, Astral Grove her home. There she created LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png2 Star Spring a huge source of healing waters where she watches over an isolated tribe of vastaya, teaching them her healing ways, and tending quietly to her own needs as well as shepherding LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png5 stellacorns, alicorn creatures that fall from the celestial realm. They would aid them until maturity when they would return them back to the celestial realm—though what brings her so close to the great mountain, or how long she will stay, only Soraka knows.

Many times, she has watched entire civilizations dance close to the brink of destruction, and she has learned that she cannot save those who do not wish it, nor force them to see what they will not.

All the same, Soraka is determined never to stop trying.

Halfway Between the Stars and Earth

Soraka Soraka meets a little Face of the Mountain item HD.png Rakkor girl who in the middle of the night was trying to climb the summit of Targon Crest icon.png Mount Targon to prove to her family that she was not "weak". soraka then tell her about A young woman with pale hair A young woman with pale hair. Her counterpart, a woman whose face burned as brightly as the sun a woman whose face burned as brightly as the sun. And a warrior with a spear a warrior with a spear.

“All of these mortals ascended to the peak. But they had chosen that path with all their soul.” She turned to the girl and spoke slowly, taking no delight in her words. “You have not truly chosen the mountain. And Targon will not choose you. You would walk to your death. Don’t do this.”

then calling the girl to warm up and have tea, where she could leave at dawn, not to climb the mountain, but to start over and find a new path in her life.

The Dreaming Pool

It was a perfectly good night for a cup of tea. Chilly, certainly, but clear—as crisp a night as frigid Mount Targon ever got, really. Soraka was expecting a visitor. The snow in the stone kettle had already begun to melt over the hearth at the center of her little yurt; as it grew warmer, the room was suffused with the smell of dried tea leaves and sparse mountain herbs.
