The guy in the Vel'Koz "First Contact" is the next champion.

I'm calling it now.

I can picture his lore already. The only survivor from a squad of ruthless soldiers that slowly got picked off one by one by an unknown being. Standing in the middle of the massacre, he sees a glowing object in the distance (16 second mark in the video). Giving in to curiosity, he touches it. Just as he does, a horrendous creature appears from the woods and pushes him to the ground, pinning him into an inescapable position. Frozen in fear, all he can do is gaze into the monster's eye, and oddly feel a strong warmth; he felt comfortable, connected somehow. Was it because he touched the glowing object? Possibly.

Coming over his fear, he prepares to die as his fellow comrades did. The monster spares him. He sees something in this man just like the man did in him, a connection between their minds. The monster is struck with curiosity and flees with these parting words:

"You will live, but only that I may see your fate, now that you are connected with I. Let us see how unlimited knowledge affects this race."
------------------------

Basically, touching the object in the video transferred fragments of power/knowledge into the man. When he looked into Vel'Koz's eye, every other missing fragments of knowledge that Vel'Koz had were fused with his, creating the ultimate intelligence in this human. Vel'Koz already has all the knowledge, but so does this human as well, so Vel'Koz spares the human to see exactly how he will use what he has learned and gained. Will he use his power for the good of his race, or will he become a tyrant to destroy all inferior to him? What the human has learned, is an entirely different story.

Thoughts on this mysterious man?

Yeah, Riot's not gonna do that. They didn't put that much work into his design.

It is very possible he could become a champion, but not the very next champion.

Maybe he changes over time, just like how Jarvan took parts of his kills and wore them, and when he came back he was decked out in bones.

EDIT: OR, what he touched was possibly from the void, so it may change his appearance slightly, but not to Kassadin's extent, because we don't want a Kassadin clone.

I'd believe you if Talon suddenly stopped wearing a hood, put on a helmet instead, and ditched his blade cape for a standard ankle long cape, none of which he wears.

EDIT: And do you really think Talon would be such a fat wuss?

Crimson Elite Talon, would be sick if this somehow related to Vel'koz.

Okay fine. It was Talon's twin brother, but he's dead now.
