Talon the Blade's Shadow

''The three deadliest blademasters in all of Valoran are bound to the house of Du Couteau: my father, myself, and Talon. Challenge us, if you dare.''
-- Katarina Du Couteau

Talon's earliest memories are the darkness of Noxus' underground passages and the reassuring steel of a blade. He remembers no family, warmth, or kindness. Instead, the clink of stolen gold and the security of a wall at his back are all the kinship he has ever craved. Kept alive only by his quick wits and deft thievery, Talon scraped out a living in the seedy underbelly of Noxus. His mastery of the blade quickly marked him as a threat, and Noxian guilds sent assassins to him with a demand: join their ranks or be killed. He left the bodies of his pursuers dumped in Noxus' moat as his response.

The assassination attempts grew increasingly frequent until one assailant met Talon blade-for-blade in a match of strength. To his surprise, Talon was disarmed and facing down his executioner's sword when the assassin revealed himself to be General Du Couteau. The General offered Talon the choice between death at his hand, or life as an agent of the Noxian High Command. Talon chose life, on the condition that his service was to Du Couteau alone, for the only type of orders he could respect were from one he could not defeat.

Talon remained in the shadows, carrying out secret missions on Du Couteau's orders that took him from the frigid lands of the Freljord to the inner sanctums of Demacia itself. When the general vanished, Talon considered claiming his freedom, but he had gained immense respect for Du Couteau after years in his service. He became obsessed with tracking down the general's whereabouts, and scours the land in search of those responsible for Du Couteau's disappearance.

Blade's End

Talon's spells Wound champions and epic monsters for 6 seconds, stacking up to 3 times.

When Talon basic attacks a target with 3 stacks of Wound, they bleed heavily over a short duration.

Noxian Diplomacy

Talon leaps to target dealing damage. If cast from melee range, Talon does not leap but instead critically strikes, dealing 150% damage. 

When Noxian Diplomacy kills a unit, Talon regains health and refunds 50% of its cooldown.


Talon tosses a volley of blades, dealing damage to units hit and returning to him after a delay.

On their way back to Talon, the blades deal additional damage and slow the enemy by for a short duration.

Assassin's Path

Talon vaults over the nearest structure or terrain in the target direction. The vault's speed is affected by Talon's movement speed.

Talon cannot dash over the same section of terrain more than once in a long duration.

Shadow Assault

Talon disperses a ring of blades that deal physical damage to all units they hit, gains increased movement speed, and becomes Invisible for a short duration. When the Invisibility ends, the blades converge, dealing the same damage again to enemies they pass through. 

If Talon cancels Invisibility with an attack or Noxian Diplomacy, the blades converge on his target's location instead.
