In League of Legends, your character is in fact a CHAMPION who has been SUMMONED to do battle in the arena of the League by a powerfull magic user dubbed a SUMMONER (who is supposed to be you as a person). The minions of the arena we know, are mindless soulless constructs. The champions however, are real living breathing people in the games lore.
What happens to say, Katarina for example, if Karthus (also for example) slays her in a League Match?
P.S. - I dont mean in real life, because I know your champion will respawn after a set time, I meant in the game's lore. Does Katarina actually die? Or somehow get whisked from death to respawn in the game's lore as well?
