Explaining Mount Targon

In terms of place in the lore, no region is more in need of an update/reboot than Mount Targon. The home to champions such as Pantheon, Taric, Leona, Soraka, and Zoe, the champions that call this mountain home are typically seen as something in between Gods and mortal men.

Some of this was cleared up with the rework of Taric, changing him into a former guardian of Demacia who was made to march up Mount Targon after failing his homeland in battle. Upon reaching the peak, Taric was imbued with ethereal powers and became a protector of life on Runeterra.

That seems fairly straightforward, but how does that exactly mesh with a champion like Aurelion Sol, a cosmic space dragon who is somehow captured by the Targonian people? Or Leona, a Targonian who basically joined a cult called the Solari and decided to fight for them? And finally, how are all of the demi-Gods from this mountain not able to easily quash the people from factions such as Demacia in battle? Riot really needs to take this opportunity to even out the power levels between some of these characters here.

The comics would be a great way to settle all this lore, essentially present two great demi-Gods – Aurelion Sol and Zoe – with Targonians split as to which should be worshipped. And please just settle on whether the human looking people like Diana and Pantheon are actually human or not.
