We need a Jackalope/human hybrid champ, it would be a totally unique champion.

Just Wiki'd the Spider Queen concept (what there was of it). It looks ridiculous. Not to advocate the Void crowd or anything... okay ENTIRELY to advocate the Void crowd, if it moved visually more towards a Beth'tilac (WoW Firelands) type design, THAT would be a more fitting Spider Queen IF it were ever to be revisited. The unreleased concept is... Shaco kind of silly looking.

Yes, we know that your characters don't have ethnic/cultural backgrounds like we do on Earth, but that doesn't mean that many of your characters aren't recognizable nods to these ethnicities/cultures. The League roster is a pastiche of fantasy, science fiction, and popular culture.

You release champs with asian features, asian names, and asian accents. They all have come from Ionia, your obvious China analogue. Lee Sin looks he's out of a Shaw Brothers film, and his lore is a direct nod to actual events from Tibetan history. Wukong is literally the main character of a popular Chinese novel. How about Viktor? Your Frankenstein analogue with an eastern European accent shouldn't be confused as eastern European? Fiora? Your rapier fighter with a French accent who speaks French shouldn't be confused as French?

The point isn't that you don't release dark-skinned champions, it's that you completely ignore the archetypes and aesthetics of dark-skinned cultures. The only two Champs you have that actually use anything south of the equator are Nasus and Renekton, who are literal monsters.
