Something truly terrifying is coming to Runeterra.

Riot Games unveiled the game's latest champion, Bel'Veth the Empress of the Void, who will be joining LoL’s roster of champions in the Jungle.

The League of Legends (LoL) developer also dropped a new cinematic called “All That Will Ever Be” that focused on the events that unfolded after Kai’Sa entered the Void in "The Call".

From all that Riot has shown of Bel'Veth thus far, let's dive into who the Empress of the Void is and what her arrival spells for the world of Runeterra.

The All That Will Ever Be cinematic shows Kai'Sa confronting one Runeterra’s biggest threats yet.

We were then given a preview of Bel’Veth’s two forms: an alien-like, humanoid form that introduces herself to Kai’Sa, and a terrifying, monstrous being that seems to be the mind of the Void.

Bel’veth’s official biography describes her as someone who “is like a dark cancer that has metastasized within the heart of the Void, through which all of Runeterra will be consumed and rebuilt in her own twisted image".

She was also said to be "a terrifying empress born from the combined memories, experiences, and emotions of an entire devoured port city and its outlying ocean".

There were also two other teasers that showed Bel'Veth's connection to other champions related to the Void, including Vel’koz, who is the oldest surviving Voidborn prototype created by the Watchers.

In the trailer, it shows that Vel’koz and Bel’veth seem to have conflicting goals.

Meanwhile, she also spoke to “the prophet” Malzahar, telling him to witness his reward, which is "the end of everything".

While the Void originally sought to destroy everything in its path, Bel’veth wants to remake all of Runeterra to do everything according to her bidding. She also mentioned that she is the Void, something that players have yet to discover and understand.

That said, there’s also a possibility that a Void event is just around the corner, with hints of it right from the beginning of the Season this year.

While there have been leaks on Bel’Veth’s abilities recently, Riot said that more details will be confirmed in the coming week.
