"Would it help if I apologized?"
The following content comes from Averdrian's game data prior to his cancelled development. Albeit distasteful, this is presented here for historic record, and we apologize should readers find it inappropriate.

His mommy didn't love him. Left him in the trash can soon after he was ejected. This is the reason behind his lack of ethical behavior.

Poor sod.


It was initially thought Averdrian had been reworked into Heimerdinger Heimerdinger, however Steven 'Coronach' DeRose confirmed that wasn't the case.[1] Still, Heimerdinger's name had appeared once in v0.9.22.14. Averdrian's icon was used as the icon for Malzahar Malzahar on the PBE before his release.

Lead Effects Artist 'Nocturne' had Averdrian as his avatar picture in the old forums, a gesture of his commitment to have the champion released.[2] However, in July 2011, he finally changed his avatar picture to Ravager Nocturne Ravager Nocturne, which implied Averdrian had finally been canceled.

And yet confirmation had come earlier, for on the 2010 Harrowing map skin for Summoner's Rift a coffin containing Averdrian (along with two others each containing Gavid Gavid and Tabu Tabu) could be seen, effectively serving as the final 'nail in the coffin' regarding his cancellation.[3]

The presented information is extracted from Closed Beta 1 (25-Mar-2009)[4]. There are minor wording adjustments for this presentation.

The original title was "The Astral Guardian", but later changed to "The Smurf Abortion".


Averdrian's personal data indicates possibly 5 Astral Spirits instead, but the description is overwritten.
