Morgana and her twin sister, Kayle, were born on the mountain pass of Targon. Her parents, Mihira and Kilam felt the need to take the perilous path to the peak in order to find a way to protect their tribe from the Rune Wars.
At the top, Mihira was blessed with the celestial power of the Aspect of Justice. Mihira took this responsibility seriously and would often leave her daughters in the care of her husband, Kilam to rush into battle.
This caused Kilam to worry as he saw his beloved wife slipping more and more away. Finally fearing for the safety of his daughters, the next time Mihira left, Kilam took his daughters and fled.
Finding a safe place from magic and persecution, Kilam and his daughters settled in a village that would later become Demacia. Here the twins grew up different as day and night.
Kayle studied the settlement’s growing set of laws, while Morgana felt troubled by the distrust the inhabitants felt towards new arrivals. Morgana knew what it felt to be a refugee and would often visit those who had been cast out.
Feeling bitterness towards her mother for causing pain, Morgana would feel her father’s heartbreak. Fearing that she and Kayle might possess some of the Aspect’s power, this fear was confirmed when a sword fell from the heavens.
This blade was wreathed in shadow and starfire, splitting in two between the girls. Morgana and Kayle both sprouted feathered wings as they each took half. Their father turned away in grief at the sight.
Embracing this calling, Kayle quickly put together an order of judicators to enforce the law. Morgana resented her gifts, until their settlement was raided. Rushing to protect their father, they saved countless lives and became known as the Winged Protectors or Demacia.
Growing more extreme in her ideologies, Kayle passed judgment without mercy. Morgana wanted to help those who were willing to change, but Kayle would have none of it.
Finally, Kayle sent her most trusted disciple, Ronas, to arrest Morgana. Protecting those around her, Morgana accidentally killed Ronas. Kayle swore to bring Ronas’ killer to justice and met Morgana in the skies.
These two sisters fought with a vengeance, arcs of energy exploding to the buildings below them. Morgana was on the verge of winning when she heard her father’s cry. Kilam was laying in the rubble, near death.
Stricken with grief, Morgana threw her half of their mother’s sword at Kayle, rushing to her father’s side. There was no saving him and a stunned Kayle turned her back on Demacia and left.
Escaping Demacia, Morgana also left. She tried to cut off her wings to no avail. Over time, the tale of these two sisters fell into myth and their names were even forgotten.
Morgana will never abandon those who need help and seeks out Kayle, for she knows her judgment day is coming.

Each ability has a cool down, which means you have to wait some time before you can cast it again.
Morgana’s ability’s use mana. So you will have to watch your mana bar during the game. If your mana runs out, you will not be able to cast spells until it fills up.
Passive – Soul Siphon. Each time Morgana deals damage to enemy champions, large minions, and jungle monsters, she will heal herself.
Q – Dark Binding. Morgana will send out a long skill shot which will stun the first enemy it hits. They will also take magic damage.
W – Tormented Shadow. This ability allows Morgana to curse an area around her. Any enemy caught in the area will take magic damage over time.

R – Soul Shackles. This is Morgana’s ultimate ability. She will send out chains up to three enemies around her. Morgana will gain movement speed if a chain connects. Enemies that remain chained will be slowed stunned at the end of the duration.
How To Play Morgana
Morgana is a great champion to play as Support. Learn to land your long range stun and shield either yourself or your ADC at the right moments to dominate your lane.
Start with your Q and look to stun your opponent as they try to last hit minions.
Take your W at level 2. The best way to use your W is right after your land a Q. Land a Q and then use your W right under the enemy champion while they are stunned. They will take damage while they are stunned.
When you are level 3, take your E and use it to shield yourself or your ADC before the enemy uses a spell that would stun or pull. Learning the timing on this ability is key to keeping your ADC safe during fights.
At level 6, take your R and look to lock up enemy champions. Each enemy chained will take damage and will be stunned if they keep chained up.
If you are playing in the Mid Lane, level up your abilities in the same order. Shield yourself when you need to. Always use your Q and W together.
Tips And Tricks
Shielded allies will still take damage. They are only protected from magic damage and crowd control. Use this to your advantage. Try to time your E to block your enemies move.
You are able to use abilities and auto attack during your R. Try to use your Q on enemies that are chained in order for them to be stunned with your R.
Use your W on targets stunned with your Q. They will take a lot of damage.
Morgana is a pretty straight forward champions. Keep yourself safe with your E. Look to land your Q as much as possible. Your team will play around your Q, so make sure you are accurate with it.

This champion can be a great pick to play in the Jungle. Take your W and start at the Blue Buff. Take your Q at level 2 and use it with your W to deal more damage.
Do not worry about your E until level 4. Instead level up your W again at level 3. This will help you clear the jungle camps quicker and easier.
When you are ready to gank, make sure you land your Q and then W to deal damage. You will not be able to do much if you do not land your Q, so make sure you are accurate!
