Have you ever been in love?
With the Sentinels of Light event going into motion, Riot published a new comic on their website, called Sentinels of Light: Steadfast Heart, split into two tomes called Issues. The story focuses on how love can have both miraculous and devastating power.
Lucian and Viego’s stories follow a similar trajectory, focusing on their tragedies of losing their true loves. The story shows us how both of them doing everything they possibly can, failing and failing again on their path to bring their loved ones back to life.
Riot very clearly compares the two relationships, depicting Senna and Lucian in a juxtaposition to Isolde and Viego. While Lucian and Senna find happiness and comfort in being together and doing their job, Viego celebrates his marriage with Isolde. Things quickly take a dark turn, however, after Senna pushes Lucian away from Thresh’s hook and an assassin’s blade claims Isolde’s life.
“If you had felt that love, a passion and devotion without equal, what would happen if you lost it?” – the comic reads. “Not to time, or the natural course of things, but taken from you? Casting you down into darkness, along with your rage, with your failure to protect them.”Sentinels of Light: Steadfast Heart Issue 1
Lucian devotes himself to get her free from Thresh’s grasp, while Viego descends into madness. Looking for a way to resurrect Isolde, he ultimately sets his course for the Blessed Isles.
Sentinels of Light: Steadfast Heart Issue 2 serves as a conclusion for the two husbands. While Lucian succeeds in setting Senna free, Viego fails in his pursuit. When Isolde is resurrected as a ghost, she takes Viego’s sword and stabs herself, unleashing black mist onto the Isles.
It is unclear when the new Issue will be released, but both Lucian and Viego’s stories should conclude during the Sentinels of Light event.
