Bel'Veth has not even cooled off from her reaching the Rift, and now the leaks for a new bot lane champions are already out. It seems an interesting one to say the least.

The newest bot lane champion coming to the Rift was said by Riot to be a melee bot laner. It was even teased in a short story during the reveals regarding Bel'Veth, where their gender wasn't even revealed.

Now, it seems that the champion is female and her name is Nilah, a water-based melee bot lane champion.

Nilah is poised to arrive at the Rift sometime soon if the leak by BIgBadBear is to be believed, and this leaker is not one to disappoint. She is meant to be coming with the new Star Guardian skin line, with her release skin accompanied by a Star Guardian alternative.

She is said to be coming from "a land of a thousand colors", and her color palette will feature the color blue heavily, as her name implies. As the short story "Oyster Bill's Oyster Shack" indicates, Nilah is unlikely to be a member of the Marais tribe, the same one Nami is part of, as there was no mention of her looks being any different than that of the Noxians she beat up in a bar fight.

What will prove interesting, however, is how this champion will fare in the current bot lane meta, where marksmen are the dominant force, and melee champions have drawn the short end of the stick.
