What I want to know is what is up with some yordles have 3 fingers, some have 4. Some yordles have cat ears (Kennen, Teemo, possibly Veigar), some have elvish ears (Tristana, Poppy), some even have human-like ears (Corki's Hot Rod skin). Most male yordles seem to have the triangular dog/cat-like nose (Veigar, Heimer, Teemo, probably Kennen), some have regular noses (Trist, Corki, Poppy). Can we attribute this stuff to sexual dimorphism as well? Seems like these aren't simple color changes or size differences that we commonly associate with sexual dimorphism, but attributes that would change across a species or genus. The problem is there's so much inconsistency that it's pretty hard to believe all these little guys are Yordles.
Maybe if we could get all the yordles to remove their headgear, this'd be a little clearer.
