The Void is a place between dimensions and between worlds.
To some it is known as the Outside, to others it is the Unknown. To most, however, it is called the Void. It is a timeless place inhabited by various seemingly intelligent entities who, for reasons beyond human understanding, have the desire to gain entrance to and vitiate the worlds outside their realm. Summoning rituals, which can bring champions from other worlds, have also been known to cross into the Void.
Mortals who encounter the power of the Void generally have one of a two reactions:
- Like Malzahar, the Prophet of the Void（虚空先知 玛尔扎哈）, their minds may be overwhelmed and they may become willing servants to the dark apocalyptic destinies they see emanating from the Abyss. On Runeterra, these individuals are referred to as "The Cult of the Void".
- Like Kassadin, the Void Walker（卡萨丁 虚空行者）, they may be horrified and shocked into an unyielding desire to lay down their lives to forestall the doom they see. On Runeterra, these individuals are referred to as "The Preservers of Valoran".
Some historical evidence show that, in times long past, there were massive magical projects throughout Runeterra oriented toward creating a bulwark against the Void. These projects and their history, however, remain apocryphal.
