Turns out Poppy (and thus other Yordles) live very long lives

While other young yordle girls played skip-step and braided wreathes out of posies, Poppy spent her youth earning calluses and grease stains in her father's armor shop. Blomgrun, her father, was Bandle City's finest smith. The only thing he loved as much as his work was his young daughter, Poppy - named for the sprightly sounds of the sparks that leapt from his ever-burning forge.
Poppy's lore claims that she was around when Demacia was "an ambitious new nation". Seeing as Fiora's lore is full of stuff about laws and traditions (which would require that Demacia be at least a century old), this means that Yordles must have longer lifespans than humans. But then again, Riot absolutely hates talking about Champion ages because "CONTROVERSY!". Incidentally, if Poppy really is hundreds of years old, she must be pretty dang dense not to realize by now that she's the hammer's intended owner. Guess she fills the "[Idiot Hero](http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IdiotHero)" trope appropriately.
