Nidalee is a former champion and a known huntress during the war; and the daughter of Nissa. There are few dwellers, let alone champions, residing in the blasted and dangerous lands that lie south of the Great Barrier. Much of that world still bears the scars of past Rune Wars, especially the mysterious Kumungu Jungle. There are long-forgotten treasures in these strange places which many risk life and limb to acquire. A former champion known as Nidalee was only a young girl traveling with her treasure-seeking parents when they lost their way in the dense, rainy jungles. The jungle was unforgiving, and she watched her parents suffer agonizing final days as they fell victim to a mysterious and vicious disease. She was part in Kumungu Jungle battle phase of the Battle of Runeterra, after the battle, Nidalee chose to rejoin the so-called civilized planets, to fight in so as to protect the vast woods from both Allies, Axis, Horde and Various independent forces.
