House Stark (cont.)

Bran Stark = Udyr

Bran is the Three-Eyed Raven. Udyr is the Spirit Walker, who draws power from the animal energy throughout Runeterra.

Much like Udyr can harness the strength of the turtle or bear, Bran can warg himself into his wolf to run, a hawk to fly, or Hodor to completely ruin the man’s life in maybe the saddest scene in the show. All because Bran couldn’t just not touch anything.

Rickon Stark = Poppy

Just like Rickon is the Stark child that you always forget about (like he disappeared for two seasons and no one noticed), Poppy is the Demacian no one ever thinks about. Maybe it’s because she’s a Yordle.

Jon Snow = Xin Zhao

Although Xin is not actually a Demacian (he’s actually Ionian), he fights with honor for his adoptive home. Xin is a great swordsman, duelist, and warrior, who challenges any foe, no matter the odds.

Similarly, Jon not actually a Stark, but he’s fought for and been a part of their house for his whole life. And, like Xin, Jon has fought more than one battle in which the odds were stacked against him and won.

Benjen Stark = Quinn

Quinn is an elite Ranger of Demacia, just as Benjen was an elite Ranger of the Night’s Watch. Stylistically or personality-wise, they’re really not that similar, but Benjen spent most of the show roaming around and killing people like Quinn does in every game. At least the Night King could have pinged MIA!
