Shockblade is a series of alternate future/universe skins in League of Legends. Set in a world where champions are ninjas empowered by the Storm.
- Bearing weapons imbued with lightning magic through the deadly Cloud Ritual, Shockblades are an order of mysterious shinobi warriors tasked with protecting humankind from malevolent spirits and monsters. They travel between the mortal and spirit realms to chase down threats no one else can touch, safeguarding the future for all denizens of the mortal world.
As high priest of the Shockblade order, Kassadin has a deep connection to the Storm few understand, but all respect. It is the power of his station that allows the Shockblades to follow their targets in and out of the spirit realm, going where no one else can to protect the people under their charge.
Tempestuous as the Storm itself, Qiyana braved the Cloud Ritual despite warnings that no one had survived in years. Perhaps it was her display of stubborn courage the Storm found worthy, or something else; either way, she is now Shen's student, determined to master lightning the same way she mastered the other elements.
Once half of an elite operative duo for the Shockblade order, Shen stepped away from combat after he made a mistake that nearly cost the life of his partner, Zed. Now Shen mentors young shinobi training to join their ranks – but his new charge may inspire him to take up his sword and join the fight once more.
An elite operative of the Shockblade order, Zed dives into battle with lightning-fast lethality. Though his former partner Shen hasn't forgiven himself for nearly getting Zed killed, Zed still urges him to return to the front lines; and yet the Storm rages on, whether or not the duo are reunited. Zed will bring its fury to bear alone if he must.
