Tianna is the aunt of Garen Garen and Lux Lux, High Marshal of Demacia Crest icon.png Demacia, former leader of the Dauntless Vanguard Crest icon.png Dauntless Vanguard, and a member of Crownguard House Crest.png Crownguard House. Her husband, Lord Eldred leads the Mageseeker Crest icon.png Mageseekers.

Background

Soldier career

Tianna Crownguard was born as the middle daughter of the three children from the Crownguard House Crest.png Crownguard House. She and her two brothers all served in the military. Pieter and Tianna served in the regular troops, while their (unnamed) brother was a 02DE001-full.png Ranger-Knight. The brother was eventually killed in action,[2] but Tianna and Pieter served with impeccable records. Tianna rose through the ranks and was eventually selected for the Dauntless Vanguard for her heroic actions.

Sword-Captain of the Dauntless Vanguard

Before 977 AN,[3] she was named Sword-Captain of the Dauntless Vanguard. Under her command, the elite battalion won many legendary victories, including stopping the Noxian westward expansion. Her first battle as Sword-Captain was the defense of Kalstead, where they recaptured the city from Noxus Crest icon.png Noxian conscripts. King Jarvan III offered them a new life and even allowed one of them one of them to join his personal guard.

Tianna continued to lead the Dauntless Vanguard for several more years, before receiving a promotion to Marshal, presumably due to her age, and her commanding skills.

When she was promoted to the leading role of Marshal, Tianna Crownguard left active duty in the Dauntless Vanguard Crest icon.png Dauntless Vanguard in 984 AN. Some years later she was chosen as High Marshal, the highest military position in Demacia Crest icon.png Demacia, representing the entire army in the Silver Council.[4]

Here, she is coordinating many different military operations and advises the council and the king.

Events Leading up to Sylas' Sylas' Escape

"Lux, I may not be your mother, but I'll be damned if I'll watch you drag our family name through the muck."

When Tianna learned that Luxanna Luxanna may have been in a dangerous position, she proposed and organized her marriage to Prince Jarvan Prince Jarvan. Lux eventually did not show up for the marriage. Tianna learned of her visits to Sylas of Dregbourne Sylas of Dregbourne, and ordered his execution. This led to him escaping and starting the mage rebellion.

Garen: First Shield

After the death of the king, Tianna found evidence that one of their ambassadors might have been compromised. She sent out one of the ranger-knights one of the ranger-knights and Garen Garen with a small force of the Dauntless Vanguard to the Nockmirch to investigate. It turned out that the ambassador, her Uncle Hargold Crownguard, was killed by a Noxian mage in order to turn the Nockmirch against Demacia. Tianna then learned that mages may have infiltrated even the highest levels of politics in Demacia.

She also found another trail of Sylas, that Garen immediately follows up on.

Relations

Garen Crownguard Garen Crownguard

 
   "Garen, you bring honour to our family."

Tianna is Garen's Auntie, and they seem to have a close relationship. Tianna approves of Garen's path in life, having been a member of the Dauntless Vanguard herself, and believes he brings honour to the Crownguard name. Their relationship is likely strengthened by the fact that they both shared Lux's secret, without her knowledge for the longest time, and both work together to preserve the Crownguard name.

 
   "I do not approve."

It is heavily suggested that she would be just as ashamed of Garen as she is of Lux if she ever learned of his relationship with Katarina Katarina, in character considering her need to preserve the image of her family.

Tianna is Lux's Auntie, and her relationship with her has been portrayed mainly in the Lux comic and in quotes from Legends of Runeterra. She has been shown to know of Lux's magic, in Lux: Issue 1, and suggests that she marry Jarvan IV so that she'd be safe from persecution for her magic. She later confronted Lux alongside Garen after it had been found that she had been visiting Sylas' Sylas' cell.

 
   "Lux, no!"

Her LoR card's flavour text suggests she's confronted her before, and that she is uncaring about her magic, but does care greatly for the family's reputation, and Lux knows this.

When the Reckoner Viscero Viscero was captured by Demacian army and then spared to start a new life elsewhere, he insisted on becoming a guard of King Jarvan III, who approved his request in spite of Tianna's disagreement. She later confronted Xin to warn him that she would keep watching him, and he gladly took an oath that allows her to kill him should anything happen to the king during his service.


Jarvan IV Lightshield Jarvan IV Lightshield

"If Jarvan were to marry Lux… She'd be untouchable."

Tianna suggested that Lux marry Prince Jarvan IV so that she'd be safe from persecution for her magic. After King Jarvan III was killed, Tianna became part of the counsel for the young prince before he could be crowned king. After learning that his father had ordered Xin Zhao away from his side despite the later's insistence, Prince Jarvan stated that he was going to intervene in the matter of Xin's oath to Tianna.


Fiora Laurent Fiora Laurent

When Sebastien Laurent stepped up to protect his daughter from a death duel when she publicly rejected marrying an unnamed Crownguard family member, Tianna selected a veteran warrior from the Dauntless Vanguard to fight for her kinsman so that his defeat would be certain, leading to his trying to cheat, then imprisonment and ultimately death. It is unknown whether Fiora may have some resentment toward her.

Quinn of Uwendale Quinn of Uwendale

To pay back Quinn for saving her husband's life, Lestara Buvelle vouched for Quinn, even paying a personal visit to Tianna to petition for her. Within a week, Quinn took her oaths as a ranger-knight of Demacia. Tianna would later assign Quinn to escort Garen Garen on a diplomatic mission outside of Demacia.

Aftermath
