Hey everyone, here's next Champion in my line-up of concepts. He was supposed to be out sooner, but I kinda got some new ideas and revamped him a bit. My original idea was a kind of Yorick meets Orianna ordeal but I quite happy with how he turned out. Hope you guys enjoy.

Morgan "Gepetto" Giuseppe, the Puppet Master ***UPDATED 7/9/12***
Gepetto is mage support hybrid adept at manipulating the battlefield. His play style focuses on his puppet, Carmen, whom he uses to perform his abilities. Gepetto is a champion that will reward players who enjoy playing the field and twisting it to suits their needs.
Gepetto is a young man with medium-length, slightly disheveled silver hair. He wears a somewhat tattered and worn black suit with his shirt unbuttoned a bit, white gloves and a single, tarnished pauldron on his right shoulder. Despite this somewhat destitute look, Gepetto manages to have a very high class feel to him. His left arm is a puppet’s arm, remnant of the accident that initially lost him Carmen. He sacrificed his left eye in order to transplant Carmen’s soul into the doll he uses for combat, replacing it with a red, glassy eye. In addition to his obvious strings, Gepetto wields a long silver whip.
Carmen is a porcelain doll with long, blonde hair with icy blue eyes. She wears an exquisite red dress. She has a series of stilettos hidden on her person. While she does look very life-like, there are some signs that she is, in fact, a doll, namely her joints.
For reference, this picture captures the general essence of their look.

firstly i think hes too like orianna to fill a nitch and having both on the field would just be like haveing 2 oriannas.
Also it looks like your trying to do to much with the abilitys all having secondary uses. your a mage and will be throwing enough spells as is that your spells dont need to all have sondary functions like lee sin. i would drop all of them and just focus on the main ability of the spell and maybe rework your cool downs so that your able to cast the spells more to fill the gap.
secondly embrace is way too over powered its a normal spamable ability that can do upwards of 500 damage without scaling and if, like most mages, you build AP and have around 500-600 at end game this ability is hitting around 1180 before MR. Thats not just way too high thats high for a Ult even. single target that is by far the best single target nuke in the game. not to mention its on a 15 sec CD! NOT TO MENTION that THEN you can tele the target to you ... thats waaaaaay to much for a simple move more then what his ult should do.
Suggestion: down the damage on each application or totally remove the secondary damage and add some kind of effect like slow. i would also remove the teleport all together because that is more a role for tanks not a support/mage who is squishy and might die. (Ex. say your about to die and you use this ability on a champ chasing you and you think that the secondary hit will kill them when in accuallity they have a shield or something and they happen to surive, you just game them the kill by teleporting them to you. this is why i suggest a slow.)
As for his Ult i have a few questions. Is it like Fiddles Ult where you can move and chase? or like Nunu's Ult where your rooted? if its like Fiddles i would probblibly be ok maybe tone down the duration but otherwise i think its in a good place. again i would discard the secondary effect and just polish the main focus of the spell, also the ability to fully take control of another champ is not ever a good idea thats why we have champs that clone enemys as apposed to takeing control. the most we have as far as taking control is skarner's ult drag. another reason for this is that the ult is an AOE and how would u define your target, taking control of the entire enemy team is again way to OP. over all tho this ability seem too over used as ults. there are alot of champs and concept champs that have simular abilitys. i would try coming up with something a little more interesting.
overall i dont really think that the champ has anything new to bring to the league and wouldnt have a good enough nitch to wanant being made. tho i like the ceativity.
keep trying and maybe look for soemthing that the league is missing and how you can bring that more to play as apposed to rehashing other abilitys and mixing and matching.
The abilities are awesome but what really got me was the backstory. There is just something poetic and... basically creepy about this one that sets it apart from Orianna while still being completely based on her. I applaud your brilliant storywork.
But on gameplay; I definately see some similarities between him and Orianna, but mostly in the realm of mechanics (the usage of casting from locations the Champion himself is not) as well as the shield function (but I suppose that can't be helped). Other than those minor differences I see this guy as possibly being a great addition to the League. Here's hoping you ger recognized!
EDIT: Can't wait for Fawkes - the signifigance of the name is not lost on me, and so garners my interest.
