Nope - they went back and changed it. He is now an Arabian yordle O.o

Aren male Yordles critters like Veigar and Teemo, and females look like Poppy and Tristana ?
Like males have animal features, and females are more human like.

What is Heimer then? He looks more like a Spongebob than a chinchilla.

Why Evelynn is blue?

We might never know!

Also, Teemo is only yordle whose face you can see clearly. And it was never stated that it's natural color of his face, not camouflage.

Angler fish are horrible scary monsters.
This must mean yordles would be too, if only they would stop hugging everyone.

Why should this be problematic? Nothing else in these stories seems to have to correlate to the norms of really real reality? Why this?
Pretty sure Twitch and Rammus didn't "accidentally occur." I think they are a specific race found in the world -- we just haven't seen any more of their kind because they aren't as prolific as say humans or yordles.

Maybe that's what was intended, but that isn't how it read in the original lore.

I think the object on the top of Heimer's head that looks like a brain is actually his hair. It's just very big and very brain like. I wonder how long it takes to actually do his hair if that actually is his hair.

Oh? Presently, the site lists these as the character backgrounds.
"Caught in a burst of wild magic, Rammus began to evolve. In the matter of a week, he was man-sized and a week after that he had achieved sentience."

"The waste products of Zaun's many different scientific and magical endeavors have flowed together in its sewers, mixing into a toxic and mysterious concoction. Rising up from this alchemical nightmare is a single plague rat. Unlike his lesser evolved cousins, Twitch (as he calls himself) can talk and read and interact with the world as well as any of the other sentient beings in Valoran."

This thread from a while back in the test realm lists many lore changes, and those changes seem to confirm. Twitch, for example, is seeking to recreate the accident of his sentience and joined 'As the only one of his kind'. Add to these that the general theme of LoL tends to include wild magic and twisted landscapes and areas forever fluxed and I conclude that the best you can do is call all accidentally sentient animals kin.

That thread really belongs in this forum, for all to see. Perhaps another potential sticky?
