Shen’s received updated lore to complement his rework:


”The Eye is blind to fear, to hate, to love, to all things that would sway equilibrium.”

Leader of a secret clan of mystic warriors, Shen serves as the Eye of Twilight, entrusted to enforce equilibrium in the world. Longing to remain free from the confusion of emotion, prejudice, or ego, Shen continually struggles, spirit blade in hand, to walk the unseen path of dispassionate judgment.
