I didn't plan for it to turn out like this, but it's kinda neat today features the color stories of two different assassins. I'm sure you died to both (or all three?) of them already. Luckily, their lore is a lot more interesting than their counterplay. Specifically, I chose these stories because of their different POVs.

Today, we look at the color stories of Katarina and Kha'Zix.
In the first story, **Message on a Blade's Edge**, we are allowed to look into Katarina's thoughts while she completes a mission for the Trifarix. Always calculating, considering different options, planning ahead but fighting in the moment.
The second story, **Adaptation**, is told through the perspective of Rengar, who fights an otherworldly beast. While he stops to think about his past, what he did, what _they_ did to him, it only gets stronger and evolves. It went forward, when he only looked back.
