Talon's title was first "The Blade Rogue", and later "The Shadow's Blade". When he was released his title got changed again to "The Blade's Shadow". It is unknown exactly why his title was changed to "The Blade's Shadow".
The title may relate to his service under General Du Couteau. In French "Couteau" means "knife", indicating that General Du Couteau was the "Blade" while Talon was the "Shadow".
The bird-like creature perched on the fallen sword in the Sneak Peek bears a striking resemblance to Beatrice, Šablóna:Ci's raven, hinting that Talon's past may be interlaced with Swain's in some way. Similarly, the black roses surrounding the fallen sword in the Sneak Peek likely represent the Black Rose, an organization of which Šablóna:Ci is the leader. Both champions are elements of Noxus's elite.
