As in, is this something Riot would consider for an archetype in their IP? This has been requested off and on for a while, with several Rioters (including yourself) stating that the Demonic/Devil Commander archetype is under-represented and should be explored...but then there's other comments like "we could explore that, but it won't be your stereotypical red-skinned devil".

The question I have is, what's so wrong/bad about directly implementing a stereotypical fire and brimstone demon/devil archetype in LoL? I realize you guys like to LoLize a lot of stuff, but there's also quite a few champ archetypes that are direct---Warwick, Volibear, Vayne, Nasus, Yorick, Vlad, Karthus, and Kayle to name a few.

On that similar note you guys do dance around it a bit though (Gatekeeper Galio, Infernal Alistar, and Dark Crystal Ryze being prime examples), so why the mixed message?

When talking to the guys developing the IP, we'd like to do something more unexpected with anything demonic we do. There's no issue aside from "you've seen that before" to fiery, red-skinned demonic champions.

For skins, we can take the liberty to do it because it's a skin - we can pretty much do anything we'd like there

How about an Annie skin where she's restrained to a bed and attacks with vomit and curses?

Morello, i'm sure you have answered this before but what is the primary reason the skin team decided to not make "Teen Annie?" Which as we all know is a highly wanted skin by the more vocal aspect of the community

It's pretty offensive to enough people. It'd be like making a Stripper Leona skin - it would sell well, but be offensive to the character's fanbase in a lot of ways.

I'm also just not willing to go down the path of seeing possible sexualization of a little girl. Bridge too far.

As soon as I find me some time to sit down and see it done.

That might be awhile, though.

Hard times.
