Lore:
There exists an ancient order originating in the Ionian Isles dedicated to the preservation of balance. Order, chaos, light, darkness -- all things must exist in perfect harmony for such is the way of the universe. This order is known as the Kinkou and it employs a triumvirate of shadow warriors to uphold its causes in the world. Kennen is one of these shadow warriors, entrusted with the sacred duty of Coursing the Sun - tirelessly conveying the justice of the Kinkou.

Kennen was born in Bandle City and it is said that in his first living moments he bolted first from the womb and second from the midwife who delivered him. His parents had thought that he would outgrow his boundless energy, but as he matured, his energy found no limits and was matched only by his unnerving speed. Despite his astonishing gifts, he remained unnoticed (or at least uncaught, as he was quite the prankster) until, on a dare, he ran straight up the great outer wall of the Placidium. When word of this feat reached Kinkou ears, Kennen was quickly and quietly brought for an audience. He found that the role of the Heart of the Tempest suited him, frenetically delivering both the word and the punishments of the Kinkou across the realm. He now works with his fellows Akali and Shen to enforce the balance of Valoran. This hallowed pursuit has unsurprisingly led the triumvirate to the Fields of Justice.

The Heart of the Tempest beats eternal…and those beaten remember eternally.


Abilities:
*Similar to the champion Shen, Kennen uses an energy system, as opposed to mana or health, to cast abilities. This system caps the maximum amount of energy Kennen can have, and regenerates Kennen’s energy very rapidly.

Thundering Shuriken:
Kennen throws a lightning shuriken to a target location, dealing damage and adding a Mark of the Storm debuff to the first enemy it hits.

Electrical Surge:
Passive: Kennen's weapon becomes charged every few attacks, dealing extra damage and adding a Mark of the Storm debuff on his next attack.
Active: Kennen deals damage and adds another Mark of the Storm to all nearby enemies who currently have a Mark of the Storm debuff on them.

Lightning Rush:
Kennen turns into a pulsating ball of lightning for several seconds, moving incredibly fast and gaining the ability to pass through units. Any enemy unit he touches in this form is dealt damage and receives a Mark of the Storm.

Slicing Maelstrom (ultimate):
Kennen creates a storm of shurikens and lightning around himself, summoning down a powerful energy bolt to a nearby enemy champion every half of a second, dealing damage and adding a Mark of the Storm with each strike.

Mark of the Storm (passive):
Kennen's abilities add a Mark of the Storm debuff to enemies. Upon reaching 3 stacks of the Mark of the Storm debuff, the enemy is stunned and Kennen receives an energy boost.

I totally agree, Urf has newer and fresher concept. From appearance to abilities....

Let me guess, this gonna be the new skin for Shen, who assassinated him Ninja Assassin style. April Fool #2 anyone?

I mean why not, look at what Warrick did to poor Urf PAWN! lol. Bastar Dog hahaha


Just kidding i know, he's real, the screenshot prove more than anything. It's look like Ryze gonna have competitor. More lightning caster >_> great, plenty of lightning around the house. ^o^ sound like new stuffs...........zzzzz

Btw, honestly what with Riot and Ninja and wuhhwwaaa Asian Kung Fu style this season?

1st we had Shen, now this midget who just oddly happen to be another Ninja, even better a caster, what is this? Geomon the mystical ninja? or Doremon? You know what i love about Caster, they squishy and easy to kill. When you use DPS champ, all caster can do is run and cry. I can't wait to gank him with using Twitch or Warwick, Shaco will do fine too...

Didn't we had enough asian stuff, I mean Master Yi...Udyr.....now this? I know I'm Asian, but god Riot, enough is enough, too much same concept dull the game. Otherwise why not just rip all Dota Champions like HON did. Sorry but I love my Urf more, at least he's fresh. Fresh in water, fresh in concept, fresh in look, fresh in skills.

Oh did I mention Katarina also "ninja-like" Look at her and you tell me.....

Am I sad and cry? heh I could careless I don't care if they add Pikachu for those Pokemon fanboys. This is just my advice, take it or not is their choices, might as well add more Samurai & Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

Now I certainly expect my opinion to be unpopular....to...... those Ninja lover, wow I'm shockly surprise lol. Does it matter to me? no, forum is all about opinions. So take the chill pill, relax, Mr. Ninja hugger get get a chance to jerk him off later, don't worry.
