: This doesn't make any sense because the day that they used the bombs to open the isthmus was almost 100 years ago: -Janna's lore: ''The city fathers of the bustling trade city on the isthmus' coast tired of watching ships make the long trek around the southern continent, which could often take many months. They hired the most innovative scientists to use the rich chemical resources recently discovered in the area to create a massive waterway that would unite Valoran's major seas.'' -City of Iron and Glass: ''Mama Elodie was the mistress of Hope House, a foundling home dedicated to the welfare of the many orphans created in the wake of the disaster that tore Zaun apart. Initially funded by the families who would go on to become Piltover’s clans, more than two hundred orphans had been cared for within its walls. But in the century or so since its opening, the institution’s fortunes had waned as the money from the newborn city on high stopped flowing. The wealthy upsider families eventually decided they’d assuaged their guilt with enough gold, and that was that.'' I have a different theory but first here's a couple of facts: -Jinx's lore: ''A few of the old timers in Zaun remember a young girl who might fit Jinx's description, but the girl they speak of is a far cry from the one who became Piltover's bane. This girl was sweet and innocent, a tinkerer with big ideas, who never quite fit in and came to a bad end.'' -Jinx was ''sweet and innocent'' and ''came to a bad end'', so she was gullible and something bad happened to her. -Vi's lore: ''None of the old timers from Vi's youth could tell her anything of her parents, with most assuming they had simply died in one of the industrial accidents that were, sadly, all too common in Zaun. A few vaguely claimed to remember her as one of the brats from Hope House, a crumbling orphanage cut into Zaun's cave-riddled cliffs. On his deathbed, a notoriously mad sump-scrapper claimed to have found Vi adrift in a bassinet large enough for two in the ruins of a collapsed chem-laboratory.'' -Vi was found in the wreckage of a lab, and at the time she was very young, which could explain why she doesn't remember her past. -Warwick's lore: ''Though many think of Warwick as no more than a beast, buried beneath the fury lies the mind of a man - a gangster who put down his blade and took up a new name to live a better life. But no matter how hard he tried to move on, he could never escape the sins of his past.'' -Warwick used to be a Gangster -Camille has the following line towards Vi: "Ever wonder how you became an orphan?" -In Camille's lore it's clear that she will do anything for the well being of her clan. Here's some assumptions: -Riot enjoys catering to the popular Reddit theory of Jinx and Vi being sisters (which was not the case in the original lore) -Taking the detail of ''bassinet large enough for two'' on Vi's lore, we could try a less literal interpretation and assume that at the time, Jinx was 5/6 years old and Vi was at most 1 years old. Here's my theory: -Jinx and Vi's parents used to be scientists working on Zaun, and they were developing something that would have shifted the power balance between Zaun and Piltover. -Camille doesn't want that to happen, so she needs someone to steal the invention or prevent it from being created, she hires Warwick (back when he was a gangster) -At some point Jinx met Warwick, being gullible she befriends him, Warwick on the other hand plans to use her to get inside her house -Jinx helps Warwick inside the house when her parents aren't around, however they then return -Jinx's parents were about to capture Warwick but he instead beats them and sets their house on fire by accident (since it was a lab it could have had volatile equipment) -Warwick escapes but decides that he has had enough of his life style as a thief and a killer (here's where the ''let me forget line'' comes in) -Jinx becomes horrified since she sees her parents burn alive and she can't help them, and is too scared to save her baby sister (that ends up surviving anyways) -Jinx runs away, in order to cope with what she caused she slowly adopts her current personality AS A SIDE NOTE: Ekko has the following towards Jinx line: "I had a crush... until you started talking to the gun", however this was before the Piltover and Zaun lore retcon of early 2017, so I didn't take it into consideration, specially because that would mean that Jinx was around 15 years old when she ''went insane'', and at 15 years I think it's reasonable to assume that she would have been a known person with some form of registry.
Im so happy to see others as interested in this just as much as i am, your theory is quite compelling! And lines up well with all the situations and events that happen throughout the Zaun lore's and events...
: I think they've maybe already given us the answer!!! If you read through the Piltover and Zaun lores, they have a thing called Progress Day (for Piltover) and Rememberance Day (for zaun). Progress Day was the celebration of the 'Sun gates' opening, which allowed much easier trading from the east of Valoran to the west, making Piltover immensely rich. This day is called Rememberance Day instead for zaunites, to remember those lost in a *MASSIVE EXPLOSION* {{champion:222}} that created basically a giant hole in Zaun, and submerged entire districts underwater. I feel as if Jinx was the cause of this, from the taunt interactions where Swain is saying it was her fault, faces in the flames etc, Vi being scared af when it happened since I think she used to live in Zaun as an orphan when she was younger, Warwick wanting to forget... And there wasn't another big event like this, so what else would swain be talking about other than the rememberance/progress Day explosion?

And there wasn't another big event like this, so what else would swain be talking about other than the rememberance/progress Day explosion? This actually could be quite close to whatever the cannon story is, i like the idea that Jinx caused the flooding and all the taunts kind of fit perfectly into this theory... Hey you might be on to something.

: Riot is hiding Jinx's back story or what?
Good to see people taking a interest in the whole {{champion:222}} {{champion:19}} {{champion:254}} ordeal... but Jinx's backstory has always been a mystery and i just hate how Rito keeps it this way... I wish we got answers ):
: Sudden realization
Since the new client.

: PROJECT Skins?
I could definitely see Jinx being a great candidate... She could have cybernetic limbs that carry her heavy arsenal of weapons, if they made it a 1820 skin (witch i doubt since she already has one...) FIshbones could be Shoulder mounted and could maybe switch fire modes when you switch with your Q . Project Kayn could also be pretty cool :P
: I don't think Darius or Caitlyn will get Project skins considering they already have tech based skins. Draven seems to flat of a character for Project, that is until Swain's lore update. Tryndamere and Jinx, I could definitely see.
PROJECT Jinx... {{sticker:zombie-nunu-hearts}}

: How exactly is it that rengar gets a totally unfitting Mecha skin in which he turns into a FUCKING CAR and right after that riot announces a Project HUNTER skinline which would fit Rengar 100 times better but he doesnt get it? Rengar is the greatest Hunter in LoL but he doesnt get a Project HUNTER skin. HUNTER RIOT, ITS CALLED HUNTER. HUUUNNNTEERRR
I have seen this post 3 times on 3 different discussions...
: So there are new project skins comming up...
Jinx ... Please god let it be jinx...
Rioter Comments
: Candidates for: PROJECT
Ugh i would say a good candidate would be {{champion:222}} , and also {{champion:222}} . But the one that would fit the best out of them all would definitely be {{champion:222}} !

: You belong in a sausage while ulting ez lul, cause he is making sausages from ez meat.
: Is Janna truly the only "god" in Piltover and Zaun?
They do say in jinx's lore that some see her as a "spirit of vengeance " so you might be on to something here... Good work !

: What exactly IS Trinity Force?
: I doubt Urgot will have anything to do with Jinx (though who knows, its possible I guess). Rather we're more likely to learn about Jinx via a Singed lore update if that comes with Urgot.
Yes whell hopefully there will be a lore update for Singed since it didnt come with the Zaun update. Also i wonder will urgot be categorized under Zaun or Noxus in the universe page.

lets see ughm... a big ass hand cannon that blows your face of when it hits its 4th bullet... or gardening equipment :D . With that being said i think Jhin wins any day.{{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: How do Piltover Champs feel about Urgot?
I believe that the Piltover police force as well as Camille would only step in once Urgot starts expanding his plans into Piltover after he is done with Zaun. Especially since Camille doesn't realy care for Zaun although Zaun and Piltover are two halves of the same coin. Also : i reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaly hope his lore shines some light on jinx's past , even if its just a small hint .
