Was League Of Legends' Newest Champion Inspired By An Employee?

A few days ago a League of Legends champion, named Fiora, got leaked onto a respected League of Legends' fansite. Accompanying the flood of information was a picture of Fiora herself who seemed...oddly familiar.

On the left of the photo above we can see Fiora, the Grand Duelist, and on the right we have Nika "Nikasaur" Harper a Community Coordinator at Riot Games (the developer of League of Legends). I'm not just seeing things, right? One seems to have been inspired by another.

Nikasaur also hosts the "Summoner Showcase", a series of videos done by Riot featuring fan artwork. As a result she's been one of the most visible members of the Riot team and one who may go from just being seen on the screen to being playable. They're both white, yes, they're both female, yes, but the real kicker is the hair. The comb over to one side paired with the purpleish hair makes it an easy comparison to draw. Is it possible? Could Riot's design team have decided to try and immortalise Nikasaur? Or did she take them all out in a high stakes card game?

Note that Fiora has not yet been confirmed by Riot.

This is the next League of Legends Champion - Fiora [State of the League]

    Key difference... she has the body of a 10 yr old boy

      Except that she doesn't at all

      you may have been hanging out with some unusually sexy boys there mr. splatterfest, may i enquire as to their location and favorite candy?

        she has no curves or lady bumps what so ever!

          I find that being the Sister/Cousin (?) of Phreak is far more unattractive than any other quality she may possess.

        Unrelated: i'm totally selling a van right now. The windows are blacked out, but I think it might fit your purposes. Interested?

          I think you've mis read, she isn't attractive to me because she looks like a boy

            Yeah, I was replying to bc. Kotaku's comment system is what some may refer to as 'pants on head retarded'.

            I think you need to get out more. Youve been playing too many games sexualising women and have no clue about how they really look.

              +1.

              The only girls that look like Fiona are the ones that have Bolimia.

              +2

    Fiora <3

    This is some tenuous shit right here.

    I was all ready to comment on the creepy chauvinistic shit that gets poured on the girl every Summoners Showcase, how she is apparently super hot or super fat but always an object to comment over. And how good for her that in exchange for that bullshit she gets a character made for her.

    And then I look at the first comment on this article and see the same bullshit. Really, guys?

    Oh look. Big boobs and hips, tiny waist, skintight outfight with armor covering none of the chest or vital organs. Do they only have 1 female model from which they make all of their characters?

    Like, every female in the game has the same femme fatale body type, and at least 2 unlockable skins that can only be described as "Slut Costume".

    The only male character that can be said about is Pantheon (Ruthless Pantheon skin).

    A bit of variety/decency please, Riot. Give a female character a different body-type, or at least somewhat practical armour.

      That's not going to happen, you don't see curvy or overweight woman in video games because... no one wants to see them, it would be like making a biggest loser videos game, if you don't like it then stop playing video games.

    Um.... Nika changes her haircut on an almost weekly basis.. seriously, I'm pretty sure she's got pigtails or something and no purple this week. So no... Brian... oh wait.. Luke?.. oh wow someone else.

    In conclusion, it looks like a pretty typical lol champion.

    It hasn't been confirmed yet or anything, so don't get your hopes up.
