Omen was a quadruped demon/Voidborn-like creature which, as Tom 'Zileas' Cadwell explained in his GC Online talk 'Designers Are Humans Too—Causes of Poor Design Decisions', no one at Riot was sure if he was a melee or a ranged DPS character.

Eventually, even though Omen was halfway through his development cycle, Riot realized he wasn't 'getting any better' and was ultimately scrapped and was released in his place.
