Relations

  • Shen leads the remnants of the Kinkou Order.
    • Together with Akali Akali and Kennen Kennen he enforces balance between Runeterra and the spirit world.
      • The Kinkou are at war with Zed Zed and his Order of Shadow.
        • Even though the Master of Shadows killed Lord Kusho (Shen's father) the Eye of Twilight is torn between avenging him and enforcing equilibrium, but of course, his duty takes precedent.
  • Lord Kusho, Shen, and Zed Zed were responsible for capturing and imprisoning Jhin Khada Jhin.
    • Shen inherited his title and Twilight Assault.png spirit blade from his father.
    • Later on, when Jhin was set free again, Zed sought out Shen in order to inform him about Jhin's reappearance and to team up with him to stop him. Shen, despite still wishing to avenge his father's death, accepted the truce for the greater good.
