VALORANT Fan Theory Suggests Viper Is Behind Reyna's Sister's Death

Riot Games are no strangers to taking their titles beyond the face value of a game. Their work with League of Legends has seen Summoners be the forefront of a fanciful and deep lore, that dives into the backstories of each and every character combined into a whole world of champions and monsters alike. 

The stories are also set to come to life, with Riot and Netflix combining to release Arcane, a League of Legends animated series starring in-game characters such as Vi, Caitlyn, and Warwick. Launching in "Fall 2021", Riot's imagination will be open to being viewed worldwide, and it appears that the webs are already being spun in VALORANT too.

VALORANT's agents have yet to receive an intricate storyline, such as its cousin LoL, although snippets have been whispered to the deeper side of the fan base. Devoted players have now concocted some rather strong theories about some of the main agents, including one that suggests Viper is behind the death of Reyna’s little sister.

The Viper Killed Reyna's sister Theory 

Reddit user GamePlayerEx has theorised that as Viper (AKA Dr Sabine) and her prodigy in science, Sage, were a part of Omen's death/passing to the voided shadow form. Viper and Omen seem to have a close relationship, evident through in-game voice lines such as "Sabine, look at the monsters we've become! At least you have flesh to hide your horror." and "Don't die here, Sabine. I need your secrets".

Viper also knows Sage, and appears to have worked with her in the past. Voice lines such as "That's payback, Sage" and the killing quip "Never. Ever. Assume you can help me. You can't help me, you can't help them", which indicates that they were involved in an experiment that went wrong. The theory suggests that this experiment was the accident leading to Omen's new form and that Sage, feeling guilty about the experiment, opted to seek out healing qualities - hence her abilities in-game.

Based on other Sage voice lines such as "I wasn't strong enough before... but now, now I am strong enough for us all!", it appears that her healing powers were not strong enough to save Omen, despite the attempts. With this in mind, there is clear tension through in-game characters Viper and Sage, indicating a form of dislike between the two. The theory also insinuates that this was a result of Sage's failed efforts to help Viper revive Omen.

So where does Reyna fit into this? 

Reyna's voice line "For you, Hermanita" (Spanish for Sister) and a player card named "Revenge for Life" suggest that she is placed in VALORANT to avenge the death of her sister.

The fan theory also indicates that Viper had been experimenting on more "radiant" humans - people that have powers, showcased in-game. With Reyna being radiant too, her sister would make for a good case study to see if the powers can be transferred or manipulated. 

The theory says "Viper and her team must've thought of trying to revolutionize and upgrade humanity starting with Reyna's sister. Viper had no choice and had to experiment on someone, and she chose Reyna's sister without knowing she's related to Reyna.

"She used Reyna's sister as a way to find a way to bring Omen back. It's possible that Viper must've tried to find a way to save a life, only ending up taking the life of someone else's dear loved one."

The latest Player Card shows both Reyna and Viper locking in a deep stare whilst standing over a picture of a child and scientist, possibly Viper and Reyna's Hermanita. This indicates that Reyna is targeting Viper for the death of her sister.

Whilst this is just a theory, the multiple voice lines and in-game facts make this a strong suggestion.

Will Riot Release Any Valorant lore?

So far, the developers have only hinted at the VALORANT lore through voice lines and player cards, yet to showcase a League of Legends-esque showreel.

However, it's clear that each of the agents has a clear and definitive link, opening the way for Riot to get creative. 

There may not be any official lore for some time though, as the agent pool is rapidly growing.

For now, we'll have to let fan imagination run wild and fill in the gaps ourselves.
