Many people have noticed that there’s a Twitter account that goes by the name of Seraphine – for the last couple of weeks, many tweets have been coming from this account.
Seraphine has been posting pictures of her cat, her music, and her feelings and thoughts. The tweets usually are a Twitter activity that you would expect to see from a human. Here’s the deal though – Seraphine isn’t a real person. Is that surprising? If she isn’t a real person, then what is she?
Seraphine is a new champion coming to League of Legends! Mind you; Riot hasn’t officially confirmed that, but based on our research, it’s all there. If Riot is behind that account, and we are sure they are, we have to give it to them; it’s a pretty good marketing strategy they’re using.
There’s not a lot known about the League of Legends champion number 152 – while she’s keen to tweet on Twitter, she’s still mysterious.
Earlier this month, some inside leaks were revealed by a Brazilian Streamer and based on those leaks, we already know that there’s a new “sensational mage” in the making.
Everything is starting to line up – the fact that we know we have new champions coming out, then the Tweets from “Seraphine,” followed by a streamer talking about an upcoming “Sensational mage.”
Seraphine’s Twitter and Instagram Accounts
You can have a look at Seraphine’s Twitter and Instagram accounts for yourself – the accounts are listed under the name “Seraphine,” and the handle is “@seradotwav.”
As of right now, Seraphine has been posting some status updates and acting like she’s an aspiring musician that lives in New York. Take a look at the picture above – do you see all of those followers? She has 96.9K at the time of taking the screenshot and writing this post, and that is expected to grow.
There was a Dexerto that reached out to Seraphine. At the time of writing this, there has been no reply, and we’re not sure exactly who is responsible for that profile, but it makes the mystery even sweeter.
Here’s her latest post:
Seraphine Tweets in English and Mandarin
In one of Seraphine’s tweets, she says, “Hello!” in English and Mandarin. Oh, and she has a cat called Bao, and a lot of the comments on her tweets are written in Mandarin. We feel like the new champion #152 is being marketed towards Western and Chinese audiences, which makes a lot of sense since LoL has a lot of Chinese fans.
A Close Look at Seraphine’s Social Media Bio
Seraphine even took the time to fill out her social media bios. She’s an “aspiring songwriter and producer” with big dreams. With that said, her “sensational” nature that the streamer talked about is going to come with her music abilities – do you feel that as well?
Seraphine’s Images Reveals Something Else
As we looked through Seraphines images, we noticed that she has links to LoL devs Riot Games. In the background of at least one of the pictures she has posted, Tibbers (that’s Annie’s bear) is in the background.
Music Tracks on Soundcloud
Heading over to Soundcloud, and looking at the name “seradotwav,” we believe that is her. The first cover she posted is of “Childhood Dreams,” by Ary. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Ary, Ary is licensed to Universal – this is the same company Riot just opened up a partnership with for Worlds.
If you took a look at her Twitter account, did you notice her “selfies?” They’re obviously not selfies of a real person – those are carefully rendered digital paintings. Taking a closer look, we feel that the style is pretty close to Riot’s style, with a beautiful combination of cartoon and realistic features. For example, look at Riot’s previous band KDA and make some comparisons.
Sure, this could always be a “fan” posting, but honestly, the frequency and quality of the pictures make that hard for us to believe – we just don’t feel like there’s one person behind this account, it seems more like a studio. It makes sense to say that Riot has an art team that is behind all of this, carefully planning out these images to tease LoL fans with the new #152 champion.
Not a Believer?
Are you having a hard time believing Riot would go through this much to hype the #152 champion? Well, do you remember True Damage and how they promoted the virtual song “Giants?” Riot made an Instagram account and posted similar pictures of the members of the band. This is an act that created a lot of damage, and since it worked for that promotion, it seems as if they’re doing the same thing with Seraphine, and there’s nothing wrong with that – it’s a genius approach to marketing.
When Will this “Sensational Mage” Arrive?
Looking through her Twitter account, she’s a pretty cool character, and the question everyone has is, “When will we get to play this new LoL champion?” As of right now, there is no set date for League champ 152, but Riot did give us a rough estimate!
During a “champ roadmap update,” that took place back in June, the devs from Riot Games admitted something that stood out to us. They aim to “release one new champion per role each year,” and this goal will start in Season 10.
On Summoner’s Rift this year, we saw Lillia (jungle), Sett (top), and Yone (mid) debut. Then we have the new marksman Samia that isn’t too far from being released – that right there would fill the bot lane requirement for Riots goals in 2020.
Samira is next on the list, with Riot more than likely releasing her around patch 10.20.
This would put Seraphine stepping into the game during patch 10.24 – this will put her on a collision course right along with Worlds, and it is a perfect time for her to release one of her new Worlds songs to go with it.
We’re very excited about the release of this new champion. As of right now, all of this is speculation, even though we feel it’s accurate. There is a lot of evidence stacking up in our favor, but Riot hasn’t made the official announcement yet, so it’s all just speculation.
Just keep your eyes open and follow those Twitter accounts because more juicy teasers will be revealed, and we wouldn’t want our readers to miss out on it!
You never know where this trail of breadcrumbs is going to lead you…
