Irelia is a dancer from Ionia. She grew up learning ancient dance routines, loving every moment of it. She was sent away to learn the art of dance, only to come back home when word spread of a foreign nation invading Ionia. When she got to her once peaceful village, Irelia had to face the reality – Noxus had already invaded.
Her family gone, her brothers and father dead left to rot in unmarked graves, Irelia had to try and protect what was left of her clan. She tried to fight for the family crest, only for it to fall and shatter to the ground. For the first time new power seeped through Irelia as anger overcame her, and she realized that the dances she'd been taught all her life were far more than mere pieces of art, but also the steps of a warrior.
That was how she discovered she has the ability to move the blades of the shattered crest to defend herself against the invaders of Noxus. She was able to use her new powers and managed to get away from her once peaceful home. At only 14, Irelia had to help create a revolutionary force that would try to keep Noxus at bay and restore peace to her homeland.
