Zed quotes are quite famous worldwide.

Zed’s story begins as a boy on the steps of the home of the Kinkou Order.

He was taken in by the Great Master Kusho himself within the temple’s ancient walls. He quickly outspaced his peers in combat and study and dedicated his life to understanding Kinko’s spiritual tenets.

Even after all his efforts, Zed often felt overshadowed by his master’s son, champion Shen. Outshining everyone in his passion, Zed lacked Shen’s emotional balance.

However, despite their differences, the two characters were like brothers in the 'League Of Legends' universe. Journeying together to find the infamous “monster” Golden Demon, only for him to turn out to be a man named Khada Jhin. Instead of letting Zed kill champion Jhin, Kusho ordered for him to be imprisoned instead.

Disturbed by this, Zed started losing interest in his studies. Venturing deep into the temple’s secrets, he discovered an ornate, black box forbidden to all but the masters of the order. The shadows enveloped Zed and filled him with contempt and bitterness for the weak.

This also hinted at some dark, ancient magic! On returning to the temple, he demanded the Kinoku strike the Noxian invaders which was denied by the Great Master Kusho. Following which, Zed turned his back on them and walked away.

Thus undetached, he raised an army of followers to attack the Noxus. And anyone who threatened his homeland and army was marked for death without mercy. He soon realized his ambitions for war could not be fulfilled without the black box.

He decided to go back to the temple to claim the box, in the process overtaking the temple and establishing his Order of Shadow. Over time, Zed had disrupted the balance of First Lands irrevocably. He was determined to do whatever it took to see Ionia triumph.
