After an extended demonstration period, the League of Legends Wiki is moving forward with its planned restructuring of Character pages.
Character pages will now be structured more similarly to the character pages of other Fandoms and will provide editor-written overviews of important stories and relationships.
A champion's Biography will now be found on a dedicated article - as with other story articles.
Lore and Relations trivia has been moved here from Vi/Trivia, and should only be found here henceforth.
The League of Legends Wiki is stepping into new territory with these truly character-focused articles - so any and all contributions would be appreciated!
Once a criminal from the mean streets of Zaun, Vi is a hotheaded, impulsive, and fearsome woman with only a very loose respect for authority figures. Growing up all but alone, Vi developed finely honed survival instincts as well as a wickedly abrasive sense of humor. Now working with the Wardens to keep the peace in Piltover, she wields mighty hextech gauntlets that can punch through walls—and suspects—with equal ease.
"We can either do this the hard way or… Oh wait, no. There's just the hard way."— Vi
The Council Archives. You'd heard stories at the Academy, of course, but words could not describe the breathtaking magnitude of its contents. The entire history of your city: its glorious achievements, its sinister secrets, painstakingly documented, waiting to be read.
Vi stifled a yawn as she moved through the gilded chamber at the heart of Piltover's Hall of Law. Dawn was less than an hour old, and the place was quiet. A few drunks were sleeping it off in the shaming cells, and she'd heard there were a couple of chem-augmented thugs in the deeper, more secure lock-ups. She'd ask around later, see if she could provide any insight as to what they were doing up in Piltover.
Tamara forces herself to rise early - an easy habit to get into when the earth is your bed and fallen leaves the only blanket. Less so when the mattress is stuffed with goose down and the sheets woven from soft cotton. The curtains are pulled back, and warm light pools on the floor of her third floor boarding room. She'd closed the curtains on her first night in Piltover and had slept two hours past dawn, which worried her so much, she has never closed them since.
Even three bells after the Sun Gate had closed, Piltover was still full of life - life that was currently getting in her way. Caitlyn sprinted down Mainspring Crescent, weaving a path between midnight revelers strolling down the fashionable promenade of cafes and bistros. The supper clubs were emptying, as were the nearby theaters inside the Drawsmith Arcade, so this street was going to get a whole lot busier. If they didn't catch up to Devaki soon, they were going to lose him.
Every League of Legends player knows what it's like to chase the next win. Inspired by the true story of the five North American League of Legends players with the longest losing streak in one sitting. It's On.
Vi's prototype Atlas Gauntlets were created by Vaido Violante, a former apprentice of Covin Reveck, Orianna's father. This is retconned in the Arcane (TV Series) as in the show, Vi's Atlas Gauntlets were invented by Jayce alongside his partner Viktor. In the show, the Atlas Gauntlets were a Hextech device that was originally meant to help miners mine in a quarry more efficiently without fatigue.
In previous drafts of the lore, Vi remembers nothing from her early childhood, even her name 'Vi' comes from the tattoo on her cheek.
In Arcane, the tatoo, which is the shortened version of her name, was made during her time in prison among many others.
Before the official confirmation with the release of Arcane, Vi and Jinx were often theorized by the community to be sisters. The reference to this on Jinx's release was her quote, "You think I'm crazy? You should see my sister". Though there was never any implication that the sister was Vi, players equated Jinx's antagonization of Vi specifically as "sisterly bonding".
Incidentally, Jinx only antagonized Vi specifically on English-speaking servers. Other servers showed her antagonizing other champions, such as Lucian.
Hermit later says to Vi, "You look like your sister! Er, wait, I'm not supposed to talk about that...". This could be a confirmation that Vi has a sister, but could also be an example of Lyte repeating rumours he's heard from players (such as the rumour he heard from players that Lux and Ezreal were dating, which Lux herself later denied after hearing the rumour ).
There is a significant indication that the pair did grow up together, however. With Vi currently suffering from amnesia, Jinx has taken it upon herself to try and trigger her memories.
In an interview with Ghostcrawler, he mentioned that Jinx and Vi are "sisters", but later confirmed he was merely stating what he thought was true, and that the narrative team said otherwise.
Vi is in her 20s, and around 5 years older than Jinx.
Vi was around 14- 16 years old during the first act of Arcane.
She was around 20- 23 years old during the second and third act.
