The Tyrells and Dornish = Vastaya

The Tyrells and Dornish are a bit more free-thinking than most of the large Westerosi houses *cough* Lannisters *cough* Starks *cough*. Since they have no problem with men laying with other men, family members with each other, or even more communal love, I don’t think they’d have too much of a problem with overly-sexualized anthropomorphic foxes. Calm down cosplayers, this is not your cue to go nuts here.

Margaery Tyrell = Ahri

Margery made her way all the way to becoming Queen of Westeros through her charm and wiles. There’s no better choice to cast her from the roster of League of Legends champion than the one with the most famous charm ability, Ahri.

Olenna Tyrell = Zyra

There isn’t anyone in Runeterra with the same biting wit and sharp mind to play Lady Olenna. But for a woman known as the Queen of Thorns, Zyra would certainly fit the bill.

Oberyn Martell = Rakan

For a champion whose nickname is “the Charmer,” there can be no more charming Game of Thrones character than Prince Oberyn. In his fight with the Mountain, Obery showed that same cockiness and flair for the extravagant that we see in Rakan’s playstyle and from that release cinematic for him and Xayah. Both romantics, both skilled fighters, and both get their heads caved in by the bigger, stronger opponent.

Ellaria Sand = Cassiopeia

Ellaria’s nickname is the Queen of the Sand Snakes. Cassiopeia is a half snake. From Shurima. Which is in the desert. Filled with sand. You see where I’m going with this?
