The Season 9 Legend is the daughter of a former Titan pilot, and the Little Viper is about to cause a scene.
Season 9: Legacy (officially named just 'Legacy') has been officially announced by Respawn Entertainment, and finally brings the lore of Titanfall to the forefront of Apex Legends.
The latest Stories From The Outlands trailer introduced us to Kairi Imahara (or Valkyrie/Valk), the daughter of Titanfall 2 antagonist pilot Viper. Viper was a member of the Apex Predators faction, lead by Kuben Blisk; who just so happens to be the founder and organiser of the Apex Games. Funny how that works out...
The eight-minute-long teaser shows us the origin of Valkyrie and her tumultuous relationship with her father (Viper), and how she came to enter the Apex Games.
Legacy is an apt name for Season 9, and as the season progresses we will surely be treated to more lore based on their relationship, and perhaps even Pilot-themed skins?
