The Kinkou Order is an ancient organization which sole task is to protect peace and balance within Ionia.
Keepers of the Sacred Balance
The Kinkou are the self-appointed keepers of Ionia's sacred balance. Their acolytes walk both Runeterra and the spirit realm, mediating conflicts between them and, when necessary, intervening by force. During the war with Noxus, the Kinkou Order was ousted from its ancient temple by the followers of Zed, himself a former acolyte.
