There is a new Rioter lurking the general forums and his name is Grumpy Monkey. He is a Senior Character Artist and he, if you take a gander at his art portfolio, does some impressive work. This is all in good, but what really makes him interesting is his forum icon - a small, ghost like figure from the Battle Bunny Riven splash art. This mysterious figure has made a ripple in the pond that is the League of Legends world.
The real question is, is he trolling us or giving us a small peak into some future piece of content? When confronted about his icon, GM has this to say ( in two seperate posts )

All will be revealed Soon™

It's from Battle Bunny Riven Splash. If you look hard you will see some familiar faces....and one not so familiar face, least not yet... I've said too much.
What could this ghosty figure be? Maybe a new champion? Seems doubtful would let a Rioter use an "easter egg" of a new champion as their forum icon. Maybe a new minion or jungle mob? While RiotNome is working on TT, it seems odd for such an "unpopluar mode" to get that sort of work put into it without major changes . Perhaps it is a new skin for one of our already released champions? This isn't too far of a stretch given that Tyrant Swain was essentially spoiled by the same splash art. Heck, it might not even be anything at all! Looks like we are going to wait to find out.
