The foreigners (cont.)

Varys = Fiddlesticks

Similarly, there isn’t quite the master of whispers who stealthily deals behind the scenes to topple the evil in League of Legends. So we’ll go with Fiddlesticks to play Varys, purely because he’s the only one who has “little birds” that he can send out to all corners of Westeros.

Jaqen H’ghar = Neeko

The faceless man being played by the one champion who can disguise herself as other champions. A Curious Chameleon is no one.

Shae = Evelynn

The seductress of League of Legends, Evelynn is a demon who entrances her victims with her wiles, then skewers them and leaves them bloodied on the floor. Shae, perhaps, didn’t start out that way when she and Tyrion were involved, but she certainly eviscerated his soul during her testimony at his trial. Then, ending up sleeping with Tywin, presumably entrancing him as well, solidifies her role as the apex enchantress of Runeterra.

Littlefinger = Leblanc

A champion whose moniker is the Deceiver could not have a more fitting character in Game of Thrones to play than Littlefinger. The man has flipped allegiances faster than it takes for Leblanc to distort, do her damage, and then snap back. And just as Leblanc has her clone to fool her enemies from chasing her down, Littlefinger always had another patsy he could throw to the wolves.
