Once a swordmaster in the warhosts of Noxus, Riven is an expatriate in a land she previously tried to conquer. She rose through the ranks on the strength of her conviction and her brutal efficiency, and was rewarded with a legendary runic blade—however, on the Ionian front, Riven’s faith in her homeland was tested and ultimately broken. Having severed all ties to the empire, she now wanders with her shattered sword, seeking to atone for a past she cannot fully recall.
One tale of the kingdoms tells of Riven, her sword forged in dragonfire, descending into an enemy enclave in the aftermath of battle. Slaying her foes and freeing their captives, she rampaged across the countryside, crushing any who would enslave the innocent.
Riven's part-time job at an arcade mostly involved playing dance simulators after her manager went home. Digitally transported to Arcade World by even scarier bosses, she's now using her moves (and some gear from her favorite RPG) to tear up Veigar's regime, one enemy at a time.
Born from swirling energies at the dawn of creation, Riven is the living embodiment of order in the cosmos. Fated to clash against the Nightbringer for all time, she awaits a day when her light will finally break his darkness.

Even years after her self-exile after the end of the Noxian occupation of Ionia she retained her skill, allowing her to keep up with a swordsman as skilled as Yasuo blow for blow in single combat.) | Presumably extremely high (Has existed since before the creation of the universe)
Weaknesses: None notable
- Runic Blade: Riven's blade gains a charge every time she casts an ability, stacking up to 3 times. Each of her basic attacks consumes an available charge to deal bonus physical damage.
- Broken Wings: Riven dashes towards the target and lashes out at all enemies in front of her, dealing physical damage. Broken Wings can be cast twice more after this. The third damages all enemies around Riven in an expanded radius, knocks them up, and can also be used to pass over certain instances of terrain.
- Ki Burst: Riven's sword emits a burst of runic energy that shocks nearby enemies, dealing physical damage and stunning them.
- Valor: Riven dashes and gains a shield that absorbs incoming damage.
- Blade of the Exile: Riven reforms her sword, gaining bonus attack damage, increasing her attack range, and augmenting Broken Wings and Ki Burst's radii. For Blade of the Exile's duration, Riven can use Wind Slash once.
- Wind Slash: Riven unleashes a wave of energy in a cone, dealing physical damage to all enemies hit, increased proportional to how injured the target is.
