There are some, however, for whom nurture is not nature, and Katarina is just such a creature. Born the daughter of the feared Noxian General Du Couteau, the girl was always more interested in her father's knives than in the dresses, jewelry, and other trifles that her sisters spent so much time fussing over. A childhood dispute soon unveiled her uncanny knack for bloodshed, and her father, ever the opportunist, happily fostered her killer instincts. After training under the tutelage of the finest assassins the mighty city-state had to offer, Katarina first cut her teeth performing assassinations in the Ionian War. There, her ruthless mastery of the knife and dagger combined with her sadistic temperament to earn her the title Sinister Blade, a moniker that would follow her for the remainder of her career. She is most famous, however, for her exploits in the campaigns against Demacia, especially those surrounding her engagements with the nation's champion, Garen; a rivalry that began when she recovered the remains of Sion from a vanguard under his protection. With the demand for warfare somewhat arrested by the tenuous peace settling over Valoran, Katarina sought the allure of violence in its last remaining haven: The League of Legends. Some might say it was an inevitability that Katarina's chosen path would draw her to become a champion of the League, continuing to enforce the will of Noxus and bring prestige of war to her noble family. There, she continues to perform her bloody work - esteemed and reviled, feared and adored. "The Sinister Blade of Noxus is like a black widow - beautiful, but deadly." - Garen, the Might of Demacia, following a skirmish in the field [spotlight_embed_url] => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soCg5RbgYIA [role] => Assassin [defense_rating] => 3 [magic_rating] => 9 [attack_rating] => 4 [difficulty_rating] => 8 [damage_rating] => 3 [mobility_rating] => 3 [cc_rating] => 1 [toughness_rating] => 1 [utility_rating] => 1 [health] => 590 [health_increase] => 75 [mana] => 0 [mana_increase] => 0 [movement_speed] => 340 [armor] => 28 [armor_increase] => 4 [magic_resistance] => 32 [magic_resistance_increase] => 1.25 [attack_damage] => 58.4 [attack_damage_increase] => 2 [critical_strike] => 3.45 [critical_strike_increase] => 0.55 [health_regeneration] => 7.5 [health_regeneration_increase] => 0.11 [mana_regeneration] => 0 [mana_regeneration_increase] => 0 [attack_range] => 125 [attack_speed] => 0.658 [ability_power] => 0 [ability_power_18] => 0 [attack_speed_18] => 0.965 [health_18] => 1984 [mana_18] => 0 [movement_speed_18] => 340 [armor_18] => 87.5 [magic_resistance_18] => 53.3 [attack_damage_18] => 112.8 [critical_strike_18] => 0 [health_regeneration_18] => 16.4 [mana_regeneration_18] => 0 [attack_range_18] => 125 [tip_playing_as] => *Try waiting until the other team is distracted with fighting your team, and use Shunpo to teleport into the fray and unleash a devastating Death Lotus. *Using Shunpo on an allied Champion, minion or ward can be a great escape tactic.
