Aurelion Sol is in dire need of a rework. His kit is outdated and just doesn’t work, making him one of the least played champions in League of Legends. His champion lore, on the other hand, is anything but outdated and boring.

In this champion lore, we take a deep dive into the mind of Aurelion Sol, the star forger. Without his power and strength we would have never got to experience League of Legends and the world of Runeterra.

Who is Aurelion Sol According to LoL Lore?

Aurelion Sol is a being as old as time known as a Star Forger. He has roamed the eternal vacuum of the celestial realm, filling the void with marvels and sparkling spectra wherever he went.

Those of his kind were creatures who enjoyed solitude, moving on their own, forging their own self-centered philosophies. Aurelion Sol was no different from his kin, also moving along Celestia, dispassionate and incurious as everyone else.

That was until one day he stumbled upon a world bathed in the sunlight of a star that he had forged eons earlier. One thing was for sure, he had not been the one to create this world. He was unusually curious about this world, and the fledgling civilizations upon it.

He moved closer, flattered by the attention of the audience below. He made his way down to Targon, where the inhabitants welcomed him. Aurelion Sol came before them, in the shape of a large and terrible dragon from the stars.

The people of Targon veneered Aurelion Sol, and the Aspects demanded a suitable gift be bestowed upon him, for he was the one who had brought them the golden light of the sun. Moments later, Aurelion Sol was given a large crown.

The moment it sat atop his head, though, he realized that this was no gift. This crown was a curse, for it clamped onto his head, and wouldn’t be shaken off. As it sat atop his head, it sucked out all of his knowledge on sun forging, the insignificant mortals stealing his knowledge.

The Aspects of Targon forced the mortals upon them to work and construct a great gleaming disc. They also used his celestial energy to create god warriors for a future war that hadn’t yet taken place.

In the blink of a Star Dragons eye, the world was ravaged by war and catastrophes, and Aurelion Sol realized that slowly the curse of the crown was wearing off. A piece of gold fell off, signaling that soon he would be free once more, and then he would exact revenge upon the mortals who dare chain him to this world.

Is Aurelion Sol a Celestial According to LoL Lore?

Aurelion Sol is a celestial dragon according to his champion lore. He is one of the oldest celestial dragons in existence, and has forged many suns throughout his time. He was tricked and chained to the mortal world, though, and is now waiting for his escape so that he can destroy the world which had enslaved him.

Is Aurelion Sol the Strongest Champion According to LoL Lore?

According to his Champion lore he is the strongest character in all of LoL lore. He is able to wield the power to create stars and worlds, which no other champion is capable of doing. However, one Rioter once stated that Zoe is equally as powerful as Aurelion Sol, making her probably the second strongest champion according to League of Legends lore.
