New Champion Zeri

Zeri is a young woman from Zaun who uses her unique ability to control electricity for the good of the population.

She is a real vigilante who wants to protect those in need. This is what we know from the leaked bio and the champion trailer, at least.

In-Game, Zeri will be an ADC with a very unique Auto Attack, that will take advantage of her skills dominating electricity. She has some exciting abilities as well to pair for an amazing kit that is certainly very 2022 in comparison to ADCs of old like Ashe.
