General

Development

  • Vel'Koz is voiced by Erik Braa.
  • Vel'Koz was the first champion released in 2014.
  • During development, he was called Professor Eyebeam.[1]
  • Koz comes from one of the Eye of the Void's previous incarnations, a 'lava-dwelling kraken' called Koz, the Keeper of Secrets.[2]
  • Vel'Koz was going to have more humor in him (even be in on his own joke) before he became a creepy, amoral, heartless researcher.

Lore

  • Vel'Koz's lore is the first to be told in first person.
  • Vel'Koz's purpose is to gain Organic Deconstruction knowledge on Runeterra. Through Life Form Disintegration Ray disintegration.
  • Vel'Koz's eyes can be removed from his body (the largest can even fly, as seen when he dies)
  • Researched Eyeballing similarities between Vel'Koz and the Frozen Watchers lead credence to the idea they might be related.
    • The specifics are uncertain, but they imply the veil between Runeterra and the Void shattering in the Freljord and members of Vel'Koz's Voidborn species crossing into the frozen realm.
      • Adaptation (seeing as the Voidborn that DianaSquare Diana fought turned purple from pale after being exposed to Runeterra's atmosphere) was the key to their evolution, and the need for Iceborn 'subjects' and a subsequent 'empire' to conduct mass research on the world they landed in (much like Vel'Koz is doing at present).
  • According to his recently updated lore, Vel'Koz may be the oldest surviving Voidborn, whose ancient Shuriman name Vel'Koz roughly means "to understand by unmaking" in modern Shuriman.

Quotes

  • Vel'Koz and RengarSquare Rengar share the quote "Let's see what they're made of".

  • Vel'Koz is searching for ZileanSquare Zilean, believing him to hold the ultimate knowledge, for the Chronokeeper has seen the world in both its past and future states.
