Lore

  • In-universe, this former pathfinder's by-name Kassadin is a modified version of the foreign phrase “Kas sai a dyn?" "whom does the desert know?" to describe his talents.
  • Even though he is from Shurima Crest icon Shurima, his ties to his homeland are very weak, due to his preoccupation with the Void Crest icon Void.
  • Ezreal OriginalSquare Ezreal's parents may have been the ones who employed Kassadin OriginalSquare Kassadin to search for Ne'Zuk's tomb and found both Horok's tomb and his Nether Blade Nether Blade but he originally did not dare to take it. [2]
    • As shown in Warriors, items like this may be used to prevent Void creatures and will trap those inside the tomb once moved. The tomb has since been claimed by the Void Crest icon Void, which may explain their disappearance. [3]
  • Given the fact that the Nether Blade Nether Blade is a right-handed weapon, and that pre-update Ezreal's lore mentions his gauntlet, a left-handed weapon that belonged to Ne'Zuk who killed Horok, was once part of a pair, it is possible both items may have belonged to Horok.
