傳說班德爾城屬於約德爾，是約德爾族的居住地。 絕大多數的約德爾社會坐落於瓦羅蘭的東南方，在天然屏障石貂山脈的山腳下平和發展著。數個世紀以前，約德爾人是一個游牧民族，在大陸上遷徙了許多年，他們最後定居於拉德尼普山谷（Ruddynip Valley），也就是現在的班德爾城。雖然它們的社會看似是一個單純的鄉鎮，但事實上有著許多的陰謀與謎團。 約德爾人 就像人類一樣，約德爾人是用雙腳走路並且有感情的生物，他們也有男性與女性的分別。約德爾人比人類矮許多，無論是男性還是女性的約德爾人都鮮少超過一公尺高，他們的身高平均在八十公分左右。他們的皮膚不太相同，有的非常的滑，有的會被一些毛覆蓋，也有的是被大量的毛覆蓋。他們的膚色較人類的皮膚顏色多了許多，雖然無法以科學解釋這現象，但有些人認為這是受到符文大地自然魔法的影響，這說法或許也能解釋為何約德爾女性傾向擁有通常是藍色的滑順肌膚，而約德爾男性傾向於被大量的毛覆蓋。約德爾人在一般光譜下的視力較人類差，然而他們有較佳的聽力，並且可以看到人們看不到的紅色光譜。並且，他們擁有自己的語言，並且懂得創造和使用複雜的工具。約德爾族的基因可能與 飛斯， the Tidal Ｅ［調皮小飛］所屬於的水棲種族有關，雖然尚沒有科學證據顯示他們有共同的祖先。 而根據 Vel’koz， The Eye of the Void的掃描顯示，一個約德爾人的組成為：「99%的絨毛與1%的喜感」（“99% fur， 1% glee）。
文化善良的約德爾人比人類還注重社交關係，他們是一個愛好和平和友善的種族，通常很快活，喜歡小小的惡作劇。他們擁有良善和慈悲的美德。他們對社交關係的渴望使他們擁有這樣的德性，約德爾人的心理健康便是建立在正面的同伴關係上。但這並不代表他們不殘忍邪惡，事實上，如果一個約德爾人長期的與世隔絕－－尤其是與其餘約德爾人隔絕－－便有可能會性格孤僻鬱鬱寡歡。 Some who already are centered more toward malevolence will become exceedingly so in due course. These yordles will often twist their desire for social interaction into a desire to seek out others to inflict pain and suffering upon them， one extreme example being 維迦， the Tiny Master of Evil.
Government班德爾城 has a very community-based government with various officials overseeing their own specific areas. The city-state的 current leader is Mayor Dennison Jadefellow.
MilitaryWhat yordles lack in stature， they make up for with their armaments and their industriousness.
- The city的 weapons brigade – the Megling Commandos – are something of a legend in 班德爾城. They have a history that spans centuries， and they remain the oldest yordle military unit still in service. They are renowned for their Ｗ［勇氣］ and bravery， as well as their 仇恨 and ruthlessness， earning them a reputation as the most respected and feared of all warriors from the city-state. Legends of Megling， the valiant founder of the commandos， are， to this day， whispered throughout Valoran. It was these legends that drew 崔絲塔娜， the Megling Gunner， to join the yordle military as a part of the Megling Commandos.
- Within the city的 intelligence team – the 偵查s of the Mothership – the yordle 提摩， the Swift 偵查， is regarded to be the group的 top recon specialist. However， to those who know of his true exploits， it is clear that 提摩 is actually something else – the most unwaveringly unrepentant assassin of 班德爾城. Whilst he enjoys the typical level of community and companionship inherent to all yordles， 提摩的 feelings for his people are so immoderately strong that he ofttimes ventures out to seek out the foes of his city on his own. When he finds them， and， oh， does he find them， 提摩 extinguishes their lives with a rare and particularly toxic ajunta poison he gathers personally from the nearby jungles of 庫莽古森林. It is said that by those close to him that something switches off in 提摩 when he sets to work laying his snares and traps， so that fleeting thoughts of the lives he ends do not burden him.
- The aerial squadron – the Screaming Yipsnakes – utili劫 the Reconnaissance Operations Front-Line Copter， an air assault vehicle which has now come to replace the Light Operations Lander as the backbone of the 班德爾城 Expionary Force. 庫奇， the Daring Bombardier， was by far the most renowned of this highly 主動 group. He and his squadron soared over the skies of Valoran， surveying the landscape and conducting breathtaking aerial acrobatics for the mesmeri劫 onlookers below. In times of conflict， the squadron led daring missions which would loft them deep behind enemy lines， to both Ｗ［寒冰屏障］ their intelligence of enemy formations and deliver needed messages through hot zones.
Relations with 蒂瑪西亞班德爾城 shares a relatively good relationship with the city-state of 蒂瑪西亞. Acting as an envoy between the two city-states is 波比， the Iron Ambassador.
Relations with 比爾吉沃特Ties between 班德爾城 and 比爾吉沃特 have always been a little tense， mainly due to the occasional pirate assaults on yordle vessels.
Relations with 皮爾托福Though 皮爾托福 is a 蒂瑪西亞n ally， it的 worth noting the special connection between 班德爾城 and 皮爾托福. Many of the most ingenious minds of 班德爾城 go to attend the University in the heart of 皮爾托福 from mechanical masterminds to tinkering exellency; the most obvious display of Yordle power in 皮爾托福 University is 漢默丁格， the Revered Inventor . 皮爾托福 has gotten the attention of many yordles and taken attention to many also such as 藍寶， the Mechani劫 Menace and 希格斯， the Hexplosive Expert. Military weaponization for 班德爾城 is largely produced in 皮爾托福; examples would be the Yipsnakes aircraft and the cities 防禦 outpost walls and turrets.
Relations with 愛歐尼亞班德爾城 and 愛歐尼亞 appear to have a neutral relationship， as there is very little association between the two city-states. However， the possible exception to this neutrality is 凱能， the Heart of the Ｅ［狂風暴雨］. Born from 班德爾城， 凱能 possessed boundless energy that found no limits and was matched only by his unnerving speed. His astonishing gifts remained unnoticed until he ran straight up the great outer wall of the Placidium in 愛歐尼亞. When word of this feat reached the Kinkou Order， 凱能 was quickly and quietly brought for an audience. He found that the role of the Heart of the Ｅ［狂風暴雨］ suited him， frenetically delivering both the word and the punishments of the Kinkou across the realm. While 凱能的 position in the Order prevents him from favoring one side over another， he appears to have a deep affection for 愛歐尼亞， and would often cheer for the city-state while in battle.
Yordle Girl Went MissingA little purple， yordle girl， named 露璐， went missing on one afternoon. She was last seen in the town square where some of the other yordle children said that the girl was talking to a large firefly that was stuck inside a bird house. The girl pulled it out， followed it and， suddenly， disappeared into thin air. People say that the children must have faulty vision， but with the recent effects of the Rune Wars， there的 no telling if what the children say is true or perhaps something more.
The 班德爾城 MothershipAbove the city center sits a hulking， unfinished rocket called the Mothership. There are no records which say where it came from， though oral histories declare that it was there before the first yordles came to settle the Ruddynip Valley. The ship is a cultural icon for yordles across Runeterra and their society is unified around the concept of “getting it ready，" or restoring the broken-down structure as a symbol of cooperation. Unfortunately， actual cooperation ends with several unfinished projects littering the site， and ongoing debate over what should be done next.
The Iron Ambassador to 蒂瑪西亞Years ago the famous yordle blacksmith Blomgrun was commissioned to create a glorious helm for a 蒂瑪西亞n general. Word of this charge was leaked to the Noxian High Command， and two of their best spies Ｑ［潛伏］ed Blomgrun的 caravan en route to 蒂瑪西亞. Blomgrun的 daughter， who was traveling with him at the time， was able to escape with the helm. She watched helplessly as her father was 擊殺 before her eyes. Instead of fleeing home， she carried the helm to 蒂瑪西亞 alone. When the 蒂瑪西亞n general saw the grim determination behind the tears in her eyes， the general requested that the leadership of 班德爾城 make her the yordle ambassador to 蒂瑪西亞. The yordle leaders agreed with the request， appointing Blomgrun的 daughter， 波比， the liaison between 班德爾城 and 蒂瑪西亞.
A Cupcake from the MothershipOne day a local tinker named Beardly Kittle discovered a fossili劫 cupcake that had been expelled out from the Mothership. During this time witnesses claimed to see lights 閃現ing across the ship for a few 秒. Yordle scientists continue to investigate， though they found it unlikely that the Mothership will be turning on again anytime soon. Nevertheless， the discovery has awakened unified celebration in 班德爾城， with Mayor Dennison Jadefellow declaring a city-state holiday.
波比的 Anniversary Day RuinedThe pirate Tiresias Ellington and his crew boarded a 班德爾城 ship headed to 蒂瑪西亞 and sacked the vessel of its goods. Though 崔絲塔娜 and 提摩的 special forces were able to Ｅ［索魂奪命］ the pirates， they could not salvage the cargo. This particular shipment was on its way to a celebration， a commemoration to 波比的 appointment to service as envoy between 蒂瑪西亞 and the yordles. 班德爾城 appealed to the League to solicit reparations from 比爾吉沃特 for the loss of the goods， along with spoiling their anniversary plans. 比爾吉沃特’s stance was that they were not responsible for the actions of a few independent sailors.
Attempted Abduction of the MothershipIt was discovered that the mastermind behind the Horseshoe Heist and Balloon Burglary was none other than 維迦， the Tiny Master of Evil. He planned to use these 道具 in a grand attempt to abduct 班德爾城’s Mothership. The horseshoes’ shape allowed them to slip perfectly under the curved metal of the Mothership’s nose cone and his enchanted balloons threatened to lift the Mothership from the ground. 維迦的 plan was foiled， however， when a flock of sharp-winged 瑟雷西er geese approached from the west. The flock of predatory birds passed above the Mothership and Ｅ［大切八塊］d though all but one of 維迦’s enchanted balloons， deflating them immediately. Faced with an impending and accidental defeat， 維迦 tugged the final balloon free of its horseshoe and began to rise into the sky. The League 英雄 提摩， having just arrived at the Mothership， took aim and burst 維迦’s last balloon with a single dart. The Tiny Master of Evil plummeted into the tree line just outside the city. 班德爾城 officials were unable to locate the Tiny Master of Evil following his escape from the battle， noting that it is likely he escaped through 魔法 means. The Mothership miraculously suffered no apparent damage from the incident. Many onlookers， however， commented that the Mothership appeared to have shifted slightly to the left.
The Lost Girl ReturnsThe young， purple， yordle girl， 露璐， that was reportedly missing centuries ago， miraculously reappeared， and although she did grow， she was much younger and healthier than anticipated. During her absence， she acquired some new 魔法 talent and a new friend， Pix， possibly the large firefly that the yordles had told about. 露璐 sought to reconnect to the residents of 班德爾城， but her attempt had unfortunate results. She led all the children off to play hide and seek， temporarily changing them into flowers and animals to spice up the game， but their parents didn’t appreciate her efforts. The yordles insisted that she leave their lands immediately and she willingly did so. She later went to the 英雄聯盟 to see if she could reconnect with the rest of 瓦羅蘭 through it.
