Now that raises a question from me though... what about Ryze? The line on his background calling him a creature of magic sounds like it falls under that criteria. Am I mistaken in that assumption? He's purple, though. So... are the long ears just one example of how you can be physically changed by magic, with Ryze's skin change being another?

Ryze's skin change is all one big tattoo that he draws power from.

His head grew bigger instead.

I would say, in tristana's + all yordle's cases, it's just a racial thing, as well as warwick's (his was a divine curse, not a magical one). Evelynn... I'm not sure...we don't know enough of her lore. Soraka is definitely an ascended being.

A possibility... I just assumed the pink tattoos seen clearly on him were the tattoos that are mentioned. It's not completely specific in the writings so far, so that's a possible explanation for his purpleness if he wasn't changed by magic.

Zilean and Warwick have them.. in fact I'd say about 15% of the champs have them. 'Tis a lot of magic.
Zilean is understandable on the magic principle. Warwick gets his from the fact that he's a Werewolf...not magic

Looking over the champions a lot of the really magical ones does have much in the way of ears to begin with, so it's hard to tell who has them and who doesn't. >.<

Gragas doesn't have them (oddly enough) while Annie looks like she's developing a set.

Different people are changed in different ways by magic, so its not always the ears.

So tempted to make a really suggestive comment about how it makes things bigger...

So basically extencive use of magic can result in your body mutating?

...huh.
