Orianna is a technological marvel comprised entirely of clockwork. Before, however, she was a mortal girl who became ill during an adventure into Zaun.

Devastated at his daughter’s failing health, Orianna’s father threw all his efforts into developing his most ambitious project yet: replacing Orianna’s dissolving lungs with automated replicas. After a few months of good health, her condition worsened as the blight spread to the rest of her body. Orianna and her father worked feverishly to develop clockwork replicas of various organs, and as each body part failed, it was replaced. Eventually, Orianna became more machine than girl, and has set out to explore the wonders of Runeterra.
