Pyke, the newly-announced League of Legends champion, might have been referenced as many as three years ago. ​A note in Miss Fortunte's lore update from 2015 might just be a reference to the ​new support champion

​A Reddit user found a section of Miss Fortune's lore that reads, "In the years that followed, tales of Miss Fortune spread far and wide, each more fanciful than the last. She captured the Syren from a captain who learned the hard way what it meant to slip a hand where it wasn’t wanted, drowned the master of the Silk-Knife Corsairs in a barrel of her own rum, and dragged the insane Doxy-Ripper from his lair in the belly of a half-dismembered leviathan in the slaughter docks."

The Doxy-Ripper could easily be the half-dead Pyke.

​​This would make sense as Miss Fortune is another member of Bilgewater, and many of the champions from there have ship-like or nautical themes. Perhaps this means we'll see some interesting interactions between the two champions on the Rift. Maybe Pyke will even get a skin with the same theme as ​Miss Fortune's Gun Goddess skin.

Pyke's supposed aggressive support play style has gotten ​many excited reactions from fans.
