Hey everyone, my name is George "Zekent" Liu and I'm the support player for Team Curse. I've been in the competitive scene since 2011 and I have played as support and top lane for teams such as 4Nothing, QCTW, and Absolute Legends NA.
I'm known for my niche picks like Poppy and AP Janna, having reached 2419 ELO only playing Poppy in season 2 on my Spamhappy account. I'm known for my adaptability and extensive game knowledge.
Description and Role
Zyra is an aggressive ranged support champion that sends plants to deal magic damage to enemies. Zyra's role is to lock up enemies with her CC, which is used to peel for her AD Carry. Even though she can be played mid, she is even better at support.
Longing to take control of her fate, the ancient, dying plant Zyra transferred her consciousness into a human body for a second chance at life. Centuries ago, she and her kind dominated the Plague Lands, using thorns and vines to consume any animal that set foot in their territory. As the years passed, the animal population steadily died off. Food became increasingly scarce, and Zyra could only stand by helplessly as the last of her kin withered away. She thought she would perish alone, until the appearance of an unwary sorceress presented her with an opportunity for salvation. It was the first time in years Zyra had sensed a creature wander so close. Hunger drew her to the sorceress, but some other, deeper instinct compelled her. She enveloped the woman in thorns with ease, but as she savored this final meal, foreign memories invaded her thoughts. She saw great jungles of metal and stone where humans and animals thrived. Potent magic surged through her vines, and she devised an elegant but risky plan to survive. Using the woman’s memories, Zyra poured her newfound magic into the creation of a human-shaped vessel. She didn’t know what sort of world awaited her, but she had nothing left to lose. When Zyra opened her eyes, she was overwhelmed by the raw power ready at her fingertips. It wasn’t until she noticed the shriveled remains of the plant she once was that she realized how vulnerable she had become. If this body died, there would be no network of vines to retreat through, no roots to regrow her...but she felt truly alive. She beheld the world for the first time as animals did, and a dark smile crept across her lips. She was reborn, and there was so much now within her grasp. "Closer to the flower, closer to the thorns." ―Zyra
