New Champion: Rell

Our newest champion, Rell, the Iron Maiden, is now up for testing on the PBE! For more info, check out these links:

Before we get into the details, here's Riot Koyuncu with a bugs & feedback thread for Rell and her release skin, Battle Queen Rell:
"Hello everyone! I'm Riot Koyuncu, one of the QA engineers on Champions Team. 
Rell, the Iron Maiden, is now available on PBE! She'll officially launch to Live in two weeks, and the team is looking to collect feedback and fix any major bugs that are discovered by PBE players. If you stumble upon something strange related to Rell or her Battle Queen skin in your games, you can us know by leaving a comment in this thread. This can be anything ranging from strange SFX/VFX to odd ability behavior. As always, detailed information (e.g. bug repro steps or video clips) are very helpful at helping us triage issues before her release. 
Cheers! - Mikky"

Lore

Here's Rell's in client bio:
"The product of brutal experimentation at the hands of the Black Rose, Rell is a defiant, living weapon determined to topple Noxus. Her childhood was one of misery and horror, enduring unspeakable procedures to perfect and weaponize her magical control over metal... until she staged a violent escape, killing many of her captors in the process. Now branded as a criminal, Rell attacks Noxian soldiers on sight as she searches for survivors of her old “academy,” defending the meek while delivering violent death to her former overseers."

Her full biography can be found on her champion page

Context & Notes

1) KateyKhaos noted that a teased Nautilus skin would not be released this year:
"Apologies - We realize we teased a Nautilus skin coming in 2020, but unfortunately, that is no longer the case, and he won't be receiving a skin this year. He's still eligible for a skin, though!"

Bellisimoh also noted that it would release in 2021:

"Nautilus’ next release will be in the second patch of 2021."

2) Riot Scruffy posted a changelist for Anivia now testing on the PBE!

"With Anivia needing adjustments for 10.25, @RiotAzuBK wanted to expand the scope a bit and do a QoL pass on her

Goals:

-Unbind her from Tear so it's an option not mandatory

-Improve reliability and flexibility of Q and R

Tuning may still change, this should be on PBE next week"

3) Here's Riot Phlox with a Pantheon changelist coming to the PBE in 10.25:
"Pantheon list thats heading toward PBE (and 10.25). Taking away some proplay and support/midlane power to give Toplane a place to shine. Will be following up if needed as we see games on it and where the roles shake out. 
Q cooldown pulls a whole lot of weight, come try it out!"
