Evelynn & Zac: Primordial Empaths

The lore of these champions have soooo much in common, and yet are also _so_ different. https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/zac-color-story/ https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/evelynn-color-story/ {{champion:154}} {{champion:28}} >Zac is the product of a toxic spill that ran through a chemtech seam and pooled in an isolated cavern deep in Zaun's Sump. Despite such humble origins, _**Zac has grown from primordial ooze into a thinking being**_ who dwells in the city's pipes, occasionally emerging to help those who cannot help themselves or to rebuild the broken infrastructure of Zaun." -{{champion:154}} "Evelynn was not always a skilled huntress. She began eons ago, as something _**primordial shapeless, and barely sentient**_,. This nascent wisp of shadow existed, numb and unroused by any stimulation, for centuries. It might have remained so, had the world not been upended by conflict. The Rune Wars, as they would come to be known, brought an era of mass suffering the world had never known." -{{champion:28}} >**_Their thoughts soak into me. It’s nice, like a warm bath_**, though I tend to stretch out pretty thin when things get too hot. There’s always a few people in the mix who aren’t so happy. After all, life in Zaun can be hard. Some people are nursing broken hearts, while others can’t stomach the thought of another shift and feel nothing but seething resentment. I absorb the good and the bad, because that’s the way I was made. The bad feelings sometimes make me angry, but there’s nothing I can do about that. My parents taught me it’s okay to feel bad sometimes. **_Without the bad you can’t properly savor the good._**" -{{champion:154}} "As the Rune Wars escalated, the world’s torment grew so intense that the shadow felt as if it might burst. _**It drank in all of Runeterra’s pain, which it experienced as boundless pleasure.**_ The sensation nourished the creature, and over time, it transformed into something more. It became a demon, a ravenous spiritual parasite that fed on the basest of human emotions." -{{champion:28}} >"But as I pass beneath the outlying streets, **_a spike of anguish_** ripples through me. A tremor of fear and _**pain disturbs my liquid flesh**_. I don’t like it. It feels out of place, like something I’d expect to find deeper down in the Sump. That’s the place where bad things happen more often than good things. It shouldn’t be happening here! I get angry as more of the bad feelings soak into me. " -{{champion:154}} "_**Evelynn crept out of the shadows, her dark, wispy limbs giving way to warm flesh**_. Her demonic lashers disappeared behind her back, revealing a shapely female form, with curves too generous for any eye to ignore." -{{champion:28}} >"_**I allow my cohesion to loosen, flowing back down the grille and into the pipes**_. It is all I can do to maintain my form as I pour down through the cracks in the rock, heading toward the places I know will be awash with good emotions. I need to renew myself. I need to feel all the good Zaun has to offer." I need to feel alive." -{{champion:154}} Both {{champion:154}} and {{champion:28}} are primordial beings. One made from chemtech waste, the other apart of the innate magic of Runeterra. But...both of them are inexorably tied to man's folly. Be it the work of Zaun's tireless foundries, or the chaos of The Rune Wars. Both are powerful Empaths shaped by man. One needs Joy, the other needs Suffering. Both spend most of their time, NOT in humanoid form but instead flowing liquid or substance-less shadow. Both are urbane creatures, moving unseen through dark pipes, cracks, and alleyways. Zac is like a Genius Loci, or the 'spirit' of a place. Evelynn is like a Zeitgeist, or the 'spirit of a time' -a dark time long ago past that seeks to live again. And yet................they have **_no interactions_** with one another. I say that these two characters must ABSOLUTELY meet one another in an official story, or a comic. What would their first meeting be like? And what would future interactions be like? Zac is restricted to Zaun, at least for now. While Evelynn is a wanderer of the world. Zac soaks up the happiness emanating from people's lives. But he still absorbs those little seeds of darkness now and then. The flaws and desires that stop them from being perfectly happy. Evelynn tortures people to absorb their pain....but they die too soon. Zac can feel pain, but can't die. If Evelynn were to appear in Zaun, would Zac be powerful enough to drive her off? If he couldn't.....would he offer himself as sacrifice to quench her malevolent thirst? True. It's not the same as her flaying flesh, but could she find satisfaction in Zac? Provided of course Zac was allowed to leave her embrace and recharge himself from the populace. Would Zac be willing to enter such a dark deal if he thought he could keep the people of Zaun safe? Evelynn doesn't want to share 'territory' with {{champion:223}} and warns him off. But Zac and Evelynn derive life from very different things. They could in fact...coexist. "I'm going to suck the last drop of joy from your heart." -{{champion:28}} , taunt "No need to be mean." -{{champion:154}} attack VO "The things I'm going to do to you." -{{champion:28}} "This is gonna get messy." - {{champion:154}} attack VO
