Bel'veth, the Queen of the Void, is a real monster with fake thighs.
Oh c'mon Riot, another hot lady AGAIN? Have you not been LISTENING we want a proper MONSTooooooh nevermind we're good.
Bel'veth is finally officially revealed and REJOICE EVERYONE she is indeed a monster. Now, Riot are having their cake and eating it too a little bit, by giving her humanoid disguise that she likes to wear, which will no doubt be the main form for all her splash arts so they can keep doing the "sex sells" fallacy, but, with Bel'veth, that disguise has a point.
She is a void-creature who is formed from the consciousnesses of the people consumed by it, building a world in her own image working from the half-formed and partial knowledge she has consumed, an uncanny and imperfect imitation. So her beautiful fake face speaks, but the lips move out of sync with the words - she pretends to walk by swaying awkwardly side-to-side as she floats.
Like the lure of an anglerfish, her human features are a predator's imitation, convincing only until you look closer. It is a all just a cover for her hunger.
So yeah, Riot wants a pretty face to put on the splash art, but there is a real monster underneath, and I for one am happy about it.
According to League lore, Yordles can use Glamour to disguise themselves. This allows them to blend in with society outside of Bandle City, though tbh nobody cares much in Arcane lol - they had the fluffiest boy heading the Council, after all!
Silco's version (Glimmer) is more potent due to Shimmer, so his human form is actually physical, not just an illusion. It's less stable, though, and requires concentration to maintain it - and it can sometimes fail at the most inopportune time.
...which means we can have Glimmer malfunction cat-boy Silco, as a treat. 👀
The equivalent of walking around with his fly down. (Or, y'know, weird trouser flap unbuttoned.)
