  • Ivern knows of an event he calls 'the Kumungu Affair'.
  • Ivern travels with a squirrel called Mikkus, voiced by a Riot employee called 'Ampson'.[5]
    • Mikkus was intended to die in extremely early versions of Ivern's backstory. The development team were all very upset with Matthew 'FauxSchizzle' Dunn because of it.
  • Ivern was amongst the first Freljordians, and therefore the first outsider, to set foot in Ionia Crest icon Ionia after its centuries-old isolation from the rest of the world.[6]
  • Ivern's life goal is to succeed the God-Willow he struck down back when he was human. He is 'close' (a relatively long time from a human perspective) to completing this objective.[7]
  • Ivern is essentially immortal (but not invincible).[8]
