This response killed me a little inside. Since I thought every animal had an honorable spirit.
I guess I can't blame Ionians, Badgers doesn't seem to have the required balance to be classified as honorable animals.
Any animal is honorable, but it is about the representation they can present. Ionia has a select Zodiac from which all of creation bloomed forth. If you speak of ferocity, then both the tiger and the bear exude this much more than the badger, if you speak of tenacity then which animal is greater than the turtle? We could go on, but we think the point has been made.
It is Ionian belief that from the Zodiac other creatures were created, hence why there are the "honorable" ones and the, for the lack of a better definition, "not as honorable". You are comparing animals to the literal gods that created them.
With all of this in mind, we must admit it escapes us how there is no shark 'stance'.
Are there any stances that you are capable of using off the Fields of Justice that they do not allow you to use normally?
In all Sincerity,
Summoner Spicy Jack, the Bard of Piltover
As you may know, we have no ultimate technique, some summoners have professed that it is because we have some kind of energy beam attack. We are not magi, we do not shoot bright lights and sparkles.
With this in mind, it causes a great mental and physical strain on us to combine our auras, but for a scant moment just imagine being able to use the Bear, Tiger, Phoenix and Turtle all at the same time in a single strike. We are capable of doing so, but we are not allowed.
When we were first inducted into the League, they asked us to show them the limits of our power, we did and we destroyed a portion of Summoner's Rift and caused our summoner to fall into a coma. Because the monkey 'stance' is so akin to human, it causes the least amount of strain when combined with our other auras and thus we are allowed to use it.
We will tell you if we ever gain more blessings. And by tell, we mean beat our fists into the faces of other foolhardy champions.
As Udyr said he doesn't learn stances, he learns animal spirits who bless him with their spirit and become housed within his spirit.
But this called my attention... Is there a Dragon ''stance''?
I don't know if you classify dragons as animals or dragonkin.
The Dragon spirit is the greatest blessing to achieve, and Its blessing can almost only be achieved once every other animal spirit has granted their blessing onto a being.
We are surprised you did not realize this yourself, after all, a fellow Champion has already achieved this state. We discovered this ourselves with empirical evidence. He says the Dragon sometimes calls Itself Perring for some strange reason.
What is your Breakfast of Champions?
Jax, Grandmaster at Arms
Our breakfast consists of any wild game we are able to hunt and catch, two trout, a pile of birdseed, three bunches of bananas and we have a particular love of the wild berries that grow in the forests of the Institute.
Keep in mind, any and all meat we do catch is cooked. We ate raw meat once when we were young. Wrenching your gut in the middle of the forest is most definitely not the breakfast of champions, or intellectuals.
