YingLing Lui (Chinese: 雷盈靈; Lui Ying Ling) better known as Alter, is a Legend introduced in Season 21 Season 21 of Apex Legends. A dimension-hopping trickster, she traveled to the world of the Apex Games to witness the end of another world.

Lore[ | ]

Background[ | ]

YingLing Lui was born on an unknown planet in an alternate dimension. A free spirit who reveled in chaos, Lui frequently adventured to dimensions beyond her own, finding herself drawn to worlds on the brink of destruction to witness the chaos such events would bring. On each world she would live lavishly, stealing luxurious food and working odd jobs for personal favors until leaving before the consequences of her actions could take root - but not before leaving bodies in her wake.[1]

Much to her chagrin, those she killed would always ask her the same question - "Who are you?" To keep her annoyance at bay, she would offer witty stories as rebuttals. One day she would be a betrayed warrior trained from birth, the next a talented martial artist who became a football champion, the next a hunter trained in the Old Ways, the next a being born from stone who fought to obtain immortality.[2]

Eventually, Lui noticed a pattern among the worlds she visited. Every time she arrived at a world that had ended or was about to end, she found that its fate was due to the actions of one person. This pattern continued across all worlds she accessed, with the same person bringing the same fate.[1] Eventually, she arrived at the world of the Apex Games holding a photo of Horizon.[2] During her arrival, an object resembling Olympus was sent crashing into the Stasis Net of Cleo, destroying it.[3]
