The new Star Guardians have been confirmed for League of Legends. Xayah, Rakan, Zoe, and Neeko will be joining the ranks of the intergalactic protectors!
The Star Guardians are a group of magical high school students, in an alternate universe. This group of protectors drives one of the many spin-off narratives of League of Legends.
A few days ago, a Riot Games employee tweeted an image and a quote, hinting at new Star Guardians. Because of this tweet, fans have been on the edges of their seats, awaiting news. And now, here it is! Still, there are some unsolved mysteries.

“I will find you before her darkness burns you all away.” What does this mean? It’s too early to relax now because there is still so much left unknown!
Within their narrative, the Star Guardians fight tirelessly against the Dark Star invasion. Together, the two opposing skin lines encompass many of the most popular skins in League of Legends.
Due to the explicit connection between the two skin lines, several scenarios are likely. It could be that a new Dark Star skin is on the way as well. After all, “her,” has to be somebody in the League of Legends roster. A popular narrative like the Star Guardian universe would never include a random, non-playable character as its main villain.
Narrative mysteries aside, there are currently many unknown details. Typically, Star Guardian skin releases are mostly “Epic,” level skins, with one “Legendary.” Since Xayah and Rakan are a pair, it is unlikely that both will receive “Legendary,” level skins. Additionally, Neeko is quite a new arrival to the League roster. Zoe seems the likeliest candidate at this time to receive a “Legendary,” skin.
Regardless, these skins never disappoint, and there is much cause for excitement! Be on the lookout for further updates!
I’m an aspiring journalist and creative writer with a passion for the nerdy. If I’m not writing for work, I’m either writing creatively, gaming or attempting to make something that in some way resembles music. I currently study at Ashford University online, majoring in journalism and minoring in creative writing. I hope to one day work as a narrative writer for major game developers, a professional podcaster/interviewer, a graphic novelist and a producer of wildlife documentaries. One step at a time!
