League of Legends players and Netflix watchers love “Arcane,” the first animated series produced by Riot Games. Numerous well-known champions from the MOBA game are there, as well as characters from the Runeterra fantasy world. Arcane is set against the backdrop of Piltover and Zaun, two related but very dissimilar cities, and follows the evolving connection between the sisters’ Jinx and VI. A wide cast of people from various races can be found behind these walls. Arcane included each League of Legends Runeterra race

List of all Runeterra races from League of Legends that may be found in Arcane

• Human

• Yordle

• Golem

• Vastaya

• Poro

• Cyborg

• Brackern

Human

Standing atop a bridge covered in slaughter between Piltover and Zaun, Vander, Jinx, and VI introduce the arcane series in Act 1 Episode 1 “Welcome to the Playground.” VI and her group are shown invading Piltover in the following cut scene, which depicts humans as being the dominant race there. In actuality, all of the primary figures—Jinx, VI, Jayce, Viktor, and Caitlyn—are people right now.

Yordle

VI, Jinx, Mylo, and Claggor return to the city of Zaun following the heist and bloody brawl with Silco’s boys. Viewers are able to see the underground metropolis for the first time by following in their footsteps. Zaun is a grimy, dirty, and dark city full of interesting people, in contrast to the glittering Piltover.

We clearly see Babette outside the unidentified brothel, wh0ch is distinguished by neon lights and prowling men and women. In Act 2 Episode 5, we find that Babette is the lady in charge of the establishment. She is the first Yordle that we meet, a race that is distinguished by its diminutive stature and sharp ears, and who wears heavy blue eye shadow and a crown of fiery red hair.

Act 1 Episode 2 features Heimerdinger, a wise scientist who is also a Yordle and the creator of Piltover. Heimerdinger is also a well-known League of Legends champion, mentor to Jayce, and a clever scientist. They are a race that appears as mammalian bipeds in the Runeterra universe and are primarily found in Bandle City, though they have left their mark elsewhere as well.

Act 2 Episode 6 showed a picture of Teemo, another well-known League of Legends Yordle champion, in a book that one of Silco’s soldiers was looking through.

Golem

In League of Legends, this creature is a particular favourite among jungle mains and is literally sitting next to a plethora of Easter eggs. It is immediately apparent that the grey creature with glowing blue eyes in the caged box sitting at a stall in Zaun is a shrieking baby Krug after just a few brief seconds of screen time. They are a jungle camp on Summoner’s Rift, and when killed in-game, they award players with gold and experience points. Then, new Krugs that provide more experience and gold will reappear in these camps.

Traditional Runeterra lore describes Krugs as a magical fusion of plants, animals, and rock that are indigenous to Valoran, a continent that also includes Demacia, Noxus, and Freljord.

Other Golem subspecies exist that are mechanical rather than “natural.” Councilman Bolbok, a significant robot in the show, makes his debut in Act 1 Episode 2. He makes reference to the fact that his race was nearly wiped out by arcane magic during the trial and that he thus opposed Jayce modifying the Hextech crystal. Does this pave the way for Orianna, a Piltover-based robot champion, to subsequently make an appearance in Arcane?

Vastaya

Act 2 Episode 4 begins with a joyous Progress Day in Piltover after the opening credits have finished playing. With festival music playing in the background, the camera pans across several scenes of kids having fun at the fair before focusing on councilwoman Mrs Kiramann as she addresses a small group of people that includes the Vastaya.

It is a Runeterran species that are officially characterised by Riot Games as “mystical, chimeric beings, neither mortal nor genuinely immortal.” They are derived from Vastayashai’rei, shape-shifters with the ability to control the natural world.

As a result, no two Vastaya are alike. They are an eclectic race having traits from both humans and animals, with heads that resemble goats or birds, among other things. For instance, Xayah and Rakan were the first Vastaya couple to appear in League of Legends.

Poro

He’s adorable, fluffy, white, and animated. Upon seeing a Poro, anyone falls in love with them right away. In Act 2 Episode 4, when he enters Jacye and Viktor’s lab, Heimerdinger’s pet Poro is first seen, and it brings Netflix viewers nothing but comic relief and unbridled joy. Poros are mysterious beings that have spread throughout Runeterra from their original home in the icy Freljord.

These fluffy white snowballs are the ones that most often come to mind when thinking of Braum, a support champion in League of Legends because they adore him just as much as he does them.

Cyborg

League of Legends players is aware that even if Viktor hasn’t fully transformed into a cyborg in Arcane Act 2, it’s only a matter of time before he defaults back to Zaun. The artificial arm he would eventually use and the Hexcore that will save his life was already shown off in Episode 4. Daddy, guide us through the advancement of technology. (And Warwick, perhaps.)

Brackern

It has been more than ten years since Skarner, a Brackern, joined the League of Legends roster, but it wasn’t until Seraphine’s October 2020 debut that the out-of-meta jungler received greater attention. Along with fresh memes and a raging debate that Riot Games had to resolve, community animosity for Seraphine grew. Why? Because the champion voice lines Seraphine originally recorded for the game included the following: “I miss your type too Skarner, want to hear their song?”

Hextech crystals are not inert materials. The Brackern merged with these mystical gems, which are said to hold the living memories and thoughts of their forefathers, according to League of Legends lore. They are the Brackern’s very existence and source of life.

Few people in Piltover have the ability to hear the cries of the Brackern emanating from these Hextech crystals, but Seraphine is one of them. To make matters worse, she even made fun of Skarner while using them to power her Dance Revolution platform. 

Riot Games eventually removed this voice line and altered Seraphine’s lore in response to criticism from the League of Legends community. Every time we witness an arcane character working with a Hextech crystal, let us pause for a minute in silence to remember the Brackern people. Arcane is currently available to view globally on Netflix.
