Who Is Renata Glasc?
According to League's own press release Renata Glasc descends from a family of resourceful and altruistic Zaunits alchemists. But a few days earlier she was mentioned on a spoof website for a Zaunian chemical industry, which listed Renata Glasc as its founder. A page dedicated to Glasc, reads:
"From humble origins in the Sump of Zaun, Glasc Industries founder Renata Glasc was inspired by her family’s alchemical practice to improve life across Zaun and Piltover alike. For the last 30 years, her visionary work has touched civil development, tech, and philanthropy, collaborating with both citizens and chem barons to keep the streets safe.Currently, she heads Glasc Industries in its next objective: redefining beauty through state-of-the-art technology. To those who seek a greater future, Renata Glasc embraces all."

LoL Renata Glasc Abilities
Passive - Leverage
Renata Glasc’s basic attacks mark her enemies and deal bonus damage. Damage from Renata’s allies consumes the mark, dealing additional damage.
Q - Handshake
Renata Glasc sends out a missile from her robotic arm that roots the first enemy hit. She can reactivate the ability to throw the enemy in a target direction, damaging enemies hit and stunning them if the thrown target is a champion.
W - Bailout
Renata Glasc grants an allied champion or herself ramping Attack Speed and Move Speed toward enemies. If the ally gets a takedown on an enemy champion, the buff duration resets. If the ally would die while Bailout is still active, their health is set back to full but they begin burning to death over 3 seconds. The ally can stop the burn by getting a champion takedown before they die.
E - Loyalty Program
Renata Glasc sends out chemtech rockets that shield allies and damage and slow enemies they pass through. The rockets also apply their effects around her on cast and in an explosion at max range.
R - Hostile Takeover
Renata Glasc sends out a cloud of chemicals that causes enemies to go Berserk, increasing their Attack Speed and forcing them to basic attack anything around them. Berserk enemies prioritize attacking their own allies, then neutral units, then Renata Glasc's team, then Renata Glasc herself.
All LoL Renata Glasc Skins
For the time being, we have only seen Renata Glasc's default appearance (seen in the main image at the top of the page) to show us what this new champion will look like in the game. However, we think the image half way up the page could also be her alternate outfit, however, at the time of writing this hasn't been confirmed by Riot. Once the champion hits the PBE server's we should also get a better look at her skins, but for now, we'll have to hold tight for more info.
