    Volibear - Travis 'Volibar' George (Gameplay Producer) (Worked for the evil Activision! He must be up to something)

    Udyr - Steve 'Udyr' Mieczkowski (Associate Producer) (Likes nerdy sci-fi, I wonder which ones?)

    Ezreal - Colt 'Ezreal' Hallam (Game designer) (Seriously this guy designed like 300 champions)
