Another western fire breathing dragon on the other hand would have created those sort of problems.
This very thing crossed my mind when one of you reds were taking polls and questions regarding if another dragon champ would be a good fit. While i feel you are taking it in the perfect direction by bringing a more eastern feel, it would still be interesting to tie shyvana into ao shin lore in some way. Perhaps he is seeking her out to eliminate her or maybe to test her in some way.

I cant actually think of any crossovers of eastern and western dragons where the two meet and face each other. You could possibly look at it in an evolution sort of way how dragons evolved differently in separate areas of valoran which is why Ao Shin looks so different compared to Shyvanas dragon form but is still considered a dragon.

Edit:
this kind of direction would also help maintain shyvanas identity while allowing the two to exist in the same universe/settings without creating overwhelming confusion. Skirting the fact that these two will be confronting each other while both being considered dragons while shyv looks like this and ao shin looks like that but they are both like huh... i mean you know... there is this but then there is that... *head explodes*

Wow! This is a really cool concept. I look forward to hearing more about this champion, since he sounds like, dare I say it, a new Karma, showering good on his allies and pain on his enemies.
