  • Zed and Shen Shen trained together in the Kinkou Order, lead by the latter's father Kusho. Both students saw each other as rivals, but Shen Shen respected Zed, seeing him as a brother and even being a bit jealous of him (Kusho was less strict towards Zed)
    • Zed, Shen Shen, and Kusho worked to discover and capture Jhin Khada Jhin for his brutal murders. All three of them were severely traumatized during the investigation and, when they finally caught the 'Golden Demon', Kusho spared his life. Zed couldn't believe such a monster was offered mercy, finding himself question his master's teachings to the point of heavily resenting him and ultimately murdering him.
    • In spite of Zed's and Shen's animosity, Zed sought out Shen and to inform him about Jhin's release, in order to stop him together.
  • Zed's resentment towards Kusho led him to delve into the shadow arts, founding the Order of Shadow and slaughtering the Kinkou while taking up residence in their old monastery. He seeks to abolish the old ways of balance while spreading his 'no restraint' philosophy, murdering any ninja who refuses to learn.
    • It is implied Zed had a 'favorite student' suspected to be Akali Akali (might explain why she wants him dead while Shen Shen thinks there might be another way and Kennen Kennen believes he is not beyond redemption)
  • Zed and Syndra Syndra are seen as agents of chaos that must be stopped before they upset Ionia's delicate post-invasion stability.
  • Zed is being hunted by Kalista Kalista for betraying the Kinkou.
  • Zed wants Gangplank Gangplank dead after he ransacked the Temple of the Jagged Knife.
  • Both Rakan Rakan and Xayah Xayah have encountered Zed Zed and his ninja clan in an attempt to save a grove from losing all its natural magic.
