In the black heart of the Shadow Isles, a lone yordle trudges through the spectral fog, content in its murky misery. With an endless supply of teen angst and a powerful shadow in tow, Vex lives in her own self-made slice of gloom, far from the revolting cheer of the “normie” world. Though she lacks ambition, she is quick to strike down color and happiness, stopping all would-be interlopers with her magical malaise.

Early Life

Vex was born and raised in Bandle City Crest icon.png Bandle City, and despite her parents' best efforts, Vex never felt like she belonged. She disliked the city's bright colors and she could never really find her "yordle spirit" or any like-minded friends. She spent most of her time sulking in her room, spending time with her shadow, which she liked because it was dark and never said anything.

Journey to the Shadow Isles

Before I met the Black Mist, I lived in a world of color and happiness. I was so lost.
Vex Vex

Eventually, the Black Mist came to Bandle City. While the other residents of the city fought back against the Mist, Vex was intrgued by it and followed it to its source, the Shadow Isles Crest icon.png Shadow Isles. Vex loved it, as it was dark, gloomy, and full of dead spirits, which she liked. As she stayed there longer, she noticed that a combination of the Black Mist and her passive yordle magic allowed her shadow to gain sentience and also changed her magic, allowing her to cast gloomy and dark spells.

After a time, Vex met Viego Viego, making an alliance with him to plunge the world into darkness and gloom. However, soon Vex found out of Viego's real goal: bringing his dead wife back to life. Disgusted by this show of love, Vex left Viego's side to go back to the Bandle City to tell her parents of all she had done and bask in their disapproval. But when her parents told her that they loved her unconditionally, Vex just sighed, told her parents that they were the worst, and left for the Isles once more.

I am not cute. I am dark and forlorn and hopelessly morbid!
Vex Vex

    • Immortality: Being spiritual beings, Yordles don't age the same way as normal humans, and they can't normally die.
    • Yordle Magic: Just like any Yordle, Vex is capable of performing yordle magic, which she utilizes in tandem with her skills with shadows.
  • Shadow Manipulation: Vex's shadow is sentient and can help her cast spells.


Viego Viego

You know what, Viego? I liked your earlier stuff better.
Vex Vex
