Riot generated a lot of buzz when it released its Netflix series Esoteric. The popular anime series was based on the world of Runeterra from League of Legends, which is one of the biggest MOBAs in gaming. other characters. While many characters are part of the game’s roster, others like Mel Medara are exclusive to the series. Because of this, many are wondering if Arcane-exclusive characters like Mel will soon appear in League of Legends.
Who is Councilor Mel Medara?
Mel is a Noxian aristocrat and councilor to Piltover who rose to power after her exile from Noxus. She is one of many secondary characters in Arcane and is the primary love interest of LoL Champion Jayce Talis. She is one of the figureheads and driving forces behind the series’ story and plot.
As one of the most influential members of Piltover Council, Mel has considerable influence over the city’s political and diplomatic relations. She relies primarily on diplomacy and subterfuge to achieve her ends. Medarda was also instrumental in revolutionizing the use of magic by allowing Jayce and Viktor to prove their inventions, which allowed them to unlock Hextech.
In the series, Medara – along with the advisor Talis – are the main figures leading the Piltover faction against the threat of Zaun. Although she took no direct action against Undercity, she made significant suggestions to Jayce which resulted in various engagements; however, she advocates peace and diplomacy to resolve the issue instead of going to war with the Zaunites, as her mother suggested.
Who is Mel in League of Legends?
Unfortunately, while Mel is an important figure in Arcane lore, she isn’t a champion in the actual game like many other characters. Introducing Medara as a unit in LoL or TFT is possible, the prospect is dubious due to its lack of combat aspects.
Mel’s connections to various League of Legends characters
Advisor Medara has interacted with many identifiable champions from the Arcane Series. She frequently socializes with Jayce and Heimerdinger as the latter is the former leader of the Council and her former lover and colleague. Mel also interacted with Viktor and Caitlyn due to her political ties to the town and Council families.
Aside from her connection to Piltover’s elite, Mel also has connections to the Noxus Empire. Additionally, she is a member of House Medara, led by the warlord Ambessa. Mel was exiled from the aristocratic clan after falling short of house standards. She has spent enough time in the Empire to remember and repaint the image of the Immortal Bastion, which is an iconic structure in Noxus. His ambiguous fate at the end of the series could create a deeper bond between the nation and Piltover.
Original Arcane Characters
Mel may not be a playable champion in League, but many other original characters from the series have appeared or are expected to appear in Riot’s games. The baron of chemistry Silco, the main antagonist of Arcane, has previously appeared in Teamfight Tactics. The villain debuted as a Chemtech unit in Patch 6.5 Neon Nights, along with Renata Glasc.
Silco was also added in Teamfight Tacticsbut due to TFT’s set rotation practice, he has been removed from the pool for the time being.
A fan favorite is at the center of much speculation from the community. Vander is the father figure of Violet (Vi) and Powder (Jinx), who is the de facto leader of the Undercity in Acts 1, 2, and 3. Many fans thought Vander was Warwick before he was “monsterized”. In the third episode, Vander took on a form similar to the League Champion when he injected himself with Shimmer. His nickname The Hound of the Underground also reinforces the belief that he is indeed Warwick.
Arcane’s Viktor is obviously the mechanized champion of the same name in LoL. Although he has yet to assume his similar identity to his League appearance, Viktor is already set to be the Machine Herald. His pseudonym, the machinist, is close to his nickname of champion in the domains of Runeterra.
Mel’s impact on the series
Advisor Medara may not be a League champion, but she is a central character in the series. She has a role in various outcomes in Arcane due to her activities and relationships. Her status is left unknown due to the cliffhanger at the end of the series where Jinx launches an attack on the Council. The aftermath of this attack and its potential fate could catalyze various changes in Arcane Season 2.
