: The Zed comic will hopefully A. Provide some short background on Jhin. B. Go into the period of time that Kusho, Shen and Zed spent pursuing Jhin and show the grisly things that changed them and the rift that formed between Zed and Shen C. At the end have some kind of "present ". That's the only problem with the pretty great Ashe comic. The story started with full grown present day Ashe saying "time for a flashback", but we never went back to her at the end of the story to establish a story hook going forward. It could've been anything. Transition from Ashe saving those first tribes from Sejuani to her now with her massive horde of tribes heading into the northlands. Anything at all that lets me think "ok this is what the character is doing now". Riot said they were going to try to push the story forward and so far they haven't held to that. In this case maybe after reminiscing about Jhin, current day Zed learns that he escaped and goes after him again with intent to kill. Do not leave any more champions in limbol
I honestly wish what you wrote would be true, but we might get disappointed. It's true that most kids are not interested in lore, but i bet there are still quite a few waiting for the comics. Which is the only real problem here If Riot and Marvel decide that Jhin's story would be too graphic to be put into a comic, we would get to see almost nothing from his works of art because they want to have readers of all ages enjoy the comic, so i'm a bit worried about the quality of details we will get from that chapter. I do hold my breath for it to come out though. Dying of curiosity. I think only then will i continue writing about Jhin, as maybe there won't be anythig after that chapter. So i can leave the lore to riot and from there i can start speculating and bringing Jhin into my world without it contradicting with the lore.
: Adolescence and The Scent of Lilac -- Champion Origin Story: Khada Jhin
Wow, this is amazing, i was so caught up in this story, i was like a little baby who finished her candy and wanted more. I was hoping to read something that would stop my thirst for Jhin, i was hoping to be satisfied with an ending and stop myself from writing about him. But with this masterpiece, i feel compelled to write, to give him more life, how can one person love a fictional character to the point of obsession? At this point i'm romantically obsessed with Jhin. Please send help.

: I think Riot was inspired by some East Asian art in creating Jhin, but is this just wishful thinking? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
Through the links provided by 4 Step Cadence, i was able to learn a lot more about Jhin. Where he came from, how he ended up in League of Legends, how they started making him, as well as his mentality a little more.

I can only tell you, that you should never troubled about writing a story that you wish to, as there will always be people that don't like it, just because of how we are and how our tastes differ. You need to write, not for the others but for you, and just by looking at this thread I can already tell that you really enjoy writing about Jhin. About writing something that would later end up not being true, thing is that right now we have no idea how Jhin's life was and he could have be many things... I'm just sure that Jhin would appreciate it, even if it ended up being incorrect, as the principal tool of an artist is its mind Cadence was faster about where that tip about Jhin and Yi was located, to be honest I wasn't really able to remember where I read it, feels nice knowing that it was a true fact and it wasn't me just misremembering something. > [{quoted}](name=Sashamica,realm=EUNE,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=aYHjqzmE,comment-id=000200010001000000000000,timestamp=2019-06-05T18:49:04.751+0000) > > Well, sort of. I guess i played too much Hollow knight, where the main character, the one you play as, is refered to as "it" for being genderless. Hope i didn't offend anyone xD Hollow knight, such an amazing game. Leaving that aside, don't worry, I was just making a joke, so there is no way I would get offended. I do hope Cadence didn't feel bad because of my jokes though...
4 Step Cadence seems like an amazing person, she DID write Jhin after all *-*

: You want to die that much huh
I want a beautiful, meaningful death, i believe Jhin can grant me that, and maybe a goodbye hug. Ahem.
: So first of all, yes, you are allowed to write your own "lore" for characters. I myself do everyday. I am [Jhin](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/roleplaying/EHU7I1jW-a-lethal-masqueradeask-jhin), after all. My friend and I both have explored the depths of his character, from his [first canvas](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/sr7ABzf5-adolescence-and-the-scent-of-lilac-champion-origin-story-khada-jhin) to [the evolution of his killing technique](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fytsWfnpZhXn2yr44Vqx40-dugdyvgZBlOOJMzwgcTQ/edit?usp=sharing). There are also other works by countless other wonderful writers. What I have managed to learn about him that is 100% canon by Riots standards is this; * His father was the head of a martial arts school somewhere within the province of Zhyun. This I got from the Wiki. * I believe, officially, that his father's school specialized in daggers and darts, though Jhin was never agile enough for this, preferring to use blades in slower, more precise moves. This caused his father to develop a disliking for his son, and is possibly what drove Jhin to be obsessed with being perfect. He wanted his father's approval. I also have no source for this information, I heard it from someone else. * Jhin has always had an interest in the arts, and probably studied them or even pursued a career in them behind his father's back. * Jhin would later become a stagehand in Zhyun's traveling operas, which is most likely where he learned most if not all of what he knows, as he got acting lessons among other things. * Adding on, Jhin's "mask" when not in his outfit is simply his face. However, his acting training allows him to better control the muscles in his face, which allows him to "change" it to appear normal and unassuming in a crowd. His acting training also allows him to keep him composure better, giving him better control over what little emotions he has. * This may have been where he learned to play the piano as well. * His victims do appear to be random, as he was most likely killing along the routes of the traveling operas he worked for. However, he always kills in 4s, no matter where he is or what he's doing. * He is noted to have killed "scores of travelers and sometimes entire farmsteads". * "Entire farmsteads" might be hinting that he's killed entire families. * Not so fun fact, but based off of a line from his color story, we can assume that he also removed his victims faces and wore them as masks. * However, since Jhin is now an assassin for the cabal that freed him, Jhin has less of a choice with some of his victims. * And no, he doesn't like this, and only really tolerates it so he can get to Zed & Shen. * And since he kills in 4s, the cabal is putting innocent people at risk for their own gain, because he's not just going to kill his target(s). * Khada Jhin is not his name, but a stage name. It means "Golden Excellence" in Ionian. * We have no indication of his true identity, be it his name, his age, his face, nothing. * He is 4 years older than Zed, though. * Due to miscommunications in the making of his artwork, Jhin's "official" appearance is not canon. * In the lore, his eyes are blue, not red-brown. * His arm is not mechanical, its just armor. * His weapons (in the lore) are as follows: * The Hextech Mass Accelerator: AKA, the thing on his shoulder. This is why he wears armor of his right arm. Its so powerful that, without the armor, it would shatter Jhin's arm like glass. * Whisper: Whisper is in-tune with Jhin's innate magical abilities as well as his Ki techniques. This coupled with the fact that its already magical makes Whisper a very lethal weapon. * His cane: Whisper's detachable barrel. When Jhin isn't performing, he uses it as a cane when he walks to "announce his presence". * His traps: We learned from awaken that these things are essentially bear traps, snapping closed when someone is unlucky enough to step on them, cutting open their flesh and sending magic coursing through their veins before detonating. * As noted above, Jhin does have innate magical abilities. * When creating the bullets for Whisper, he infuses them with his magic. * You can read Jhin's scrapped color story [here](https://docs.google.com/document/d/18g-Cvrxrrg6xovkjvNvfZLjLgIx9r5PTSP11f3B7Ps0/edit?usp=sharing). * Someone brought this to my attention a while back. However, the version they posted was a bit fucky due to the way this site is. So, I fixed it up and saved it in my Google Docs for easy access. * You can also watch Awaken, which I don't have the link to, to see Jhin in action. * There's also [Of Rats and Cats and Neon Mice](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/project-of-rats-and-cats-and-neon-mice/), which gives some insight into PROJECT: Jhin. While not canon to the main lore, its still interesting. * AH! How could I forget his [champion insights](https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/champions-skins/champion-preview/champion-insights-jhin)? * As someone else already pointed out, Zed will be getting a comic later this year where he will be, presumably, hunting Jhin. Riot/Marvel, you have one job, do not fuck this up. * As for that comic, I have no idea what that's all about, but that doesn't sound at all like it could be Jhin, so don't worry about it. Am I missing anything? I think... I think that's everything that's official. I _just_ woke up, so pardon me if I missed anything.
This is already much to read, so thank you for that. I have watched Awaken a lot of times to study Jhin some more. As for the weapons and his armor, i already knew that. And that he wears people's faces too. I also know about Khada Jhin meaning Golden Excellence, as i have read The Man With The Steel Cane over 20 times last month alone, trying to figure more out about him. But i still have to look into many of the things you linked here, which i'll get to right now, thanks again. And also, i didn't think that was Jhin either in the Camille comic, it was only for a few moments that i was struggling to understand if that's Jhin or not, but as i turned the "pages" or labels, i saw more of that guy and he looks nothing like my husbando.
: Fun fact: Dark Cosmic Jhin is shirtless. Enjoy.
Omg. Don't give me wild ideas, it's already a hot summer here.

Yep, i'm not a native english speaker myself, but I think "They" was the word for neutral gender, Am I right? "It" was used because the option of being an Apache Helicopter is always there, but should be adding "They" too I guess
Well, sort of. I guess i played too much Hollow knight, where the main character, the one you play as, is refered to as "it" for being genderless. Hope i didn't offend anyone xD

Yes, it's not his real name I do understand how you feel when wishing to know everything about how Jhin came to be. I think I can help a bit with that, as I vaguely remember reading that Jhin has a passing interest in killing Yi due to how the Wuju School surpassed the one that was led by Jhin's father. Keep in mind that all those details about how Jhin's life was before the mask, before turning into a killer, don't matter anymore, for now Jhin is the mask, and what's under it has no meaning, you could consider that Jhin's early age was as Khada Jhin, and he has lived that way since then. Would be quite interesting to know about that time period, but I fear that what discover might not be of your liking. Would be interesting seeing you giving life to Jhin's early life through your writing skills, can't deny that
Thanks, but a part of me hesitates to start writing and speculating. There will be people who like it and people who don't. And then again, if a comic about Jhin does come out and i'll end up writing nonsense, i feel like i'm going to fail Jhin :< Also, where did you read about Jhin's father?
: Did you just. Assume my gender? REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
And here it is, the awaited person. Enlighten me Senpai
: HIs normal skins "outfit" is that of an old man leaning on a stick with a hunched back.
He's hot af, what are you talking about?
: {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-popcorn}} Don't mind me, just waiting for 4 Step Cadence to jump in here and leave a detailed analysis on this topic.
Same {{sticker:sg-soraka}}
: Actually he’s about 3 to 4 years older than Zed, and zed is about 34-35 currently.
Age doesn't matter, i will marry Jhin.
Dyromic (EUNE)
: Jhin is kind of young, according to the In-Game Tooltip he is 3 years older than Zed, who is 22ish. He was a decorator in a travelling theatre as you can read in his original color story, so his connection to culture and literature is pretty much there.
I see, i totally didn't read that, but i'll go ahead and read it now, sounds like an undiscovered side of him for me, which is so exciting to find out
: I don't think the baron from Camille's comic is Jhin. The only connection that can be made is the location, as he is currently heading to Piltover/Zaun, but the timeline does not fit. The comic is set some time ago, and Jhin has not arrived yet. Also, as you said, they would not kill him this easily. For more lore, I think that's it. He does not have many written pieces, but appears in "Awaken". Maybe you should check out his [_other_ color story](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/de/c/story-art/f4rA8EGP-jhins-alternative-color-story) which was the official german version, but I think it got replaced with his normal one: [The man with the steel cane](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/jhin-color-story/). Now for some speculation: He might appear in a Marvel comic soon. After Ashe: Warmother and the ongoing Lux series, we will get a Zed comic where he "hunts down one of Ionias most deadly assassins". Most people think this is Jhin. > And am I allowed to write lore? Obviously yes! Most writers will encourage you to continue their work, but keep in mind this is not official and should be called _fanfiction_ instead of _lore_. If you want to share your piece, post it in Concepts & Creations. Story, Art and Sound is for discussion the official stories, C&C is for your own things.
Thanks for your reply. I see, so i should call it fanfiction. As for the man with the steel cane, i think i memorized it completely already. gotta wait on that zed comic which i hope is about jhin because my heart knows every heartbeat spent is another second i wait for new lore on jhin. When i said i am writing from where the story left off, i was refering to the man with the steel cane, which is a freaking masterpiece. Awaken was juicy, i was on that video 2 minutes after it was posted, but it didn't give me much except for a few seconds of hot Jhin and his sexy eye and that elegant beautiful majestic bow.
: _4 Step Cadence has been summoned_ He'll probably be able to help you out when he shows up. (And there's no way he'll ignore a Jhin thread.)
Ohh more Jhin fans, i appreciate your summon. Waiting here nervously. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}

: I have nothing constructive to add(Sorry) - But rest assured that your apology at the end isn't necessary at all. Your grammar/spelling are exponentially better than half of the threads I've looked through today, and most of them are native English speakers in the NA region.
Thank you very much! {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

: His name is "Khada"? I always thought it was "Four"
Hahahah yes, it is just a stage name, but he is called Khada Jhin, it's the only name we know, which is hinted that it is not his real name.
