Relationships

  • El Poppy's hammer belonged to Demacia's founder and gunsmith, Orlon, who passed it to her on her deathbed. She's looking for the 'Hero of Demacia' destined to wield the hammer (not realizing she's the one).
    • When Orlon passed the hammer to Poppy, he did not specifically identify her as the Hero (or intended to do so, but died before he could), leading to Poppy's misunderstanding.
    • Poppy and Kled are notable for being Yordles responsible for helping build the human civilizations they align with (Demacia and Noxus, respectively).
  • Poppy knows about the existence of Lulu and Tristana, although it is not sure what she thinks about them.
    • Lulu says that Poppy and Tristana have "a little groove just above their noses when they get mad."
