Development

  • Poppy comes from Old English popæg < Latin papaver, possibly from PIE root *Peh₂-(m)P- "to swell".[2]

Lore

  • Orlon was also a weaponsmith, and had actually crafted Orlon's Hammer Orlon's Hammer himself. He was also the one who crafted Jarvan IV's Jarvan IV's spear, Drakebane Drakebane.
  • Poppy's true age is unknown, but since the in-universe present year is at least 997 AN and Poppy's earliest known event is her arrival on Runeterra during the Rune Wars (13 BN - 3 BN), it can be safely concluded that she is at least 1000 years old.
  • The Hammer of Orlon is represented as the Hammer stone in Tellstones: King's Gambit.
    • The author of the rulebook is aware that Poppy is the true hero.

Relations

  • Poppy's hammer hammer belonged to Demacia's founder and weaponsmith Orlon, who passed it on to her on his deathbed. She is searching for the 'Hero of Demacia' meant to wield the hammer (without realizing she is the one).
    • When Orlon passed the hammer to Poppy, he did not specifically identify her as the Hero (or meant to, but died before he could), leading to Poppy's misunderstanding.
    • Poppy and Kled Kled are notable for being Yordles responsible for helping in building the human civilizations they align themselves with (Demacia and Noxus, respectively).
  • Poppy knows about the existence of Lulu Lulu and Tristana Tristana, though it is uncertain what she thinks about them.
    • Lulu states that Poppy and Tristana has "a little furrow just above her nose when she gets mad".
