Kayn is a champion fighter. His abilities allow the champion to gank in a variety of ways. In addition, this champion has two forms, one of which is geared towards a more murderous form, where it deals abundant damage, and another one that is more geared towards resistance, where the champion can stay alive for a long time during a fight, causing a lot of damage. Typically, this champion is used in the wild.
“A peerless practitioner of lethal dark magic, Shieda Kayn strives to achieve her true destiny: to one day lead the Order of Shadows into a new era of Ionian supremacy. Indifferent to the Machiavellian degradation it causes his body and mind, he wields a sentient darkin weapon called the Rhaast. Only two things can happen: either Kayn makes the weapon obey him… or the evil scythe will consume him completely, setting the stage for the destruction of all Runeterra.”
(Passive) The Darkin Scythe: Kayn wields an ancient weapon, fighting Rhaast, the darkin that lives within her, for control. Either the Darkin will triumph or Kayn will overpower Rhaast to become the Shadow Assassin. Darkin: Heals a percentage of skill damage dealt to champions. Shadow Assassin: Deals bonus damage for the first few seconds in combat with enemy champions.
(Q) Reaper Slash: Kayn dashes, then attacks. Both do damage.
(W) Blade Range: Kayn deals damage and slows targets in the line of fire.
(E) Shadow Step: Kayn can traverse terrain.
(R) Threshold Transgression: Kayn hides in an enemy's body and deals heavy damage when he rips his way out.
