After previously teasing Sett in the Champion Roadmap in October, Riot has given a first look at the next League Of Legends champion in a post on their official website.
Described as the “The Beast-Boy Bastard”, Sett has a pretty tragic backstory. Pinned as an outcast from the start due to his Ionian vastaya and Noxian human parentage, Sett was later abandoned by his father who was a local pit-fighter.
Wanting to meet his father, Sett snuck away at night to the fighting pit where he became enthralled by the sport. After asking about his father’s whereabouts, he discovers his father deserted his family and went abroad to seek fortune on the other side of the world.

Through his anger, Sett became a formiddable fighter in the pit and earned the title of “King Of The Pit”. As he rose the ranks, he eventually bludgeoned his way into running the entire arena and claiming all its revenue for himself and his mother.
With that backstory, it’s perhaps no surprise Sett will be a Fighter when he releases.
Sett’s abilities have also started to trickle out online after he was released in the latest testing server update, featuring a range of attacks revolved around pummeling opponents with his fists.
Riot has yet to announce a release date for juggernaut Sett, although data mining site Surrender at 20 unearthed a “calling card” for the character would be available on 14 January 2020 – with the belief the champion could be released then too.
Sett’s official announcement also coincides with champion Aphelios’ official release on the live servers.
