The reasoning for Gavid's cancelation was that he didn't fit with the game's artistic theme. Confirmation of his cancelation came in the 2010 Harrowing map skin for Summoner's Rift, where a coffin containing Gavid (along with two others each containing Averdrian Averdrian and Tabu Tabu) could be seen, effectively serving as the final 'nail in the coffin'.
