|“||The Heart of the Tempest beats eternal... and those beaten remember eternally.||„|
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.

- Basic Attack: Kennen throws a shuriken at the opponent.
- Mark of the Storm: Enemies hit by Kennen's abilities receive a Mark of the Storm for 6.25 seconds, stacking up to three times. At three stacks, the marks consume themselves to stun the target for 1.25 seconds and restore 25 energy. If the stun is applied more than once within 7 seconds, it has a diminished effect and only stuns for approximately 0.5 seconds.
- Thundering Shuriken: Kennen throws a charged shuriken in a line in front of him, dealing magic damage to the first enemy it hits.
- Electrical Surge: Kennen deals bonus magic damage and applies a Mark of the Storm once every 5 basic attacks. When activated, Kennen sends out a surge of lightning to all nearby enemies afflicted by Mark of the Storm or caught in Slicing Maelstrom, dealing magic damage.
- Lightning Rush: Kennen transforms into a ball of electricity, losing the ability to use basic attacks but ignoring unit collision and doubling his movement speed for 2 seconds, while also gaining bonus armor and magic resistance for 4 seconds. Kennen deals magic damage to all enemies he passes through, doubled against champions, and restores 40 energy the first time he damages an enemy with Lightning Rush. Kennen can reactivate Lightning Rush to cancel the bonus movement speed, allowing him to use basic attacks again.
- Slicing Maelstrom: Kennen summons a storm around himself for the next few seconds, dealing magic damage to a random nearby enemy champion within range every 0.25 seconds. Slicing Maelstrom cannot hit the same target more than once every 0.5 seconds, and can only hit each target up to 3 times.
