This Changes Everything Emote
"I thought maybe you could love me like you used to. Even though I'm... different. But you changed too. So, here's to the new us."

With a love of big bombs and short fuses, the yordle Ziggs Ziggs is an explosive force of nature. As an inventor's assistant in Piltover Crest icon Piltover, he was bored by his predictable life and befriended a mad, blue-haired bomber named Jinx Jinx. After a wild night on the town, Ziggs took her advice and moved to Zaun Crest icon Zaun, where he now explores his fascinations more freely, terrorizing the chem-barons and regular citizens alike in his never ending quest to blow stuff up.

Early Life[]

Ziggs was born with a talent for tinkering, but his chaotic, hyperactive nature was unusual among yordle scientists. Aspiring to be a revered inventor like Heimerdinger, he rattled through ambitious projects with manic zeal, emboldened by both his explosive failures and his unprecedented discoveries. Word of Ziggs' volatile experimentation reached the famed Yordle Academy in Piltover and its esteemed professors invited him to demonstrate his craft. His characteristic disregard for safety brought the presentation to an early conclusion, however, when the hextech engine Ziggs was demonstrating overheated and exploded, blowing a huge hole in the wall of the Academy. The professors dusted themselves off and sternly motioned for him to leave. Devastated, Ziggs prepared to return to Bandle City in shame. However, before he could leave, a group of Zaunite agents infiltrated the Academy and kidnapped the professors. The Piltover military tracked the captives to a Zaunite prison, but their weapons were incapable of destroying the fortified walls. Determined to outdo them, Ziggs began experimenting on a new kind of armament, and quickly realized that he could harness his accidental gift for demolition to save the captured yordles.

Before long, Ziggs had created a line of powerful bombs he lovingly dubbed ''hexplosives.'' With his new creations ready for their first trial, Ziggs traveled to Zaun and sneaked into the prison compound. He launched a gigantic bomb at the prison and watched with glee as the explosion tore through the reinforced wall. Once the smoke had cleared, Ziggs scuttled into the facility, sending guards running with a hail of bombs. He rushed to the cell, blew the door off its hinges, and led the captive yordles to freedom. Upon returning to the Academy, the humbled professors recognized Ziggs with an honorary title - Dean of Demolitions. Vindicated at last, Ziggs accepted the proposal, eager to bring his ever-expanding range of hexplosives to greater Valoran.


Like all yordles he is the size of a dwarf has cat like ears, and a beige like colored fur. He wears armor with goggles with green lenses, and has a giant bomb on his back.


If the grin didn't get through to anyone he is a wild, and chaotic force of nature who has a passion for 2 things, bombs and explosions and refers to it as art than science. Despite his chaotic nature, he won't let children get hurt, and will do so by putting himself in harms way, and he doesn't kill anyone on purpose.


  • Yordle Physiology: Ziggs is a Yordle, a being coming from the Spirit Realm and possesses several abilities natural of his species.
    • 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, Ziggs is capable of performing yordle magic, which he utilizes in tandem with his skills as a scientists and inventor.


Jinx Jinx[]

Ziggs is quite terrified of Jinx Jinx (she constantly wants to hug him). Jinx believes he is a product of her imagination, more specifically her conscience. After a night of mischiefs with her all around Piltover, Ziggs now lives with her in Zaun.

Heimerdinger Heimerdinger[]

Ziggs sees Heimerdinger Heimerdinger as his idol and used to work for him before going to Zaun with Jinx.

Oh, they say I'm crazy -- they say that Yordles would be easy to spot in a city such as ours, what with their fuzzy countenances and diminutive stature. But I've heard rumors that they have invented some sort of magical charms that make these abominations appear no different from you or I. But don't be fooled! No matter how adorable they may seem, these mischievous creatures will bring our city of Piltover to ruin! If I were so moved, I'd say they're an even bigger threat than those lunatic terrorists from Zaun! But I'm getting ahead of myself. Our story starts in a small pyrotechnics shop in Piltover, run by two unnervingly fuzzy gentlemen...
