Zhin is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Robbed of his noble lineage, Zhin ruthlessly carved out his own throne atop of the criminal underworld. By the time he was a man, he'd won the loyalty of enough thieves, assassins, and corrupt bureaucrats to build his own shadowy empire: the Thousand Hands guild. Anyone scheming against him had a way of vanishing in the middle of the night, while those who confronted him directly met their doom at the end of his wicked flaming sword.

He refuses to pick a side in the war, as there's more profit to be made playing them against each other.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Zhin is a flank champion that excels at dueling opponents up close. He attacks with his Inferno Blade, doing a series of swings that fling burning oil forward. His Counter and Billow skills are built to outplay opponents and punish their poor choices. Whirl's short cooldown allows it to be used in a defensive and offensive manner. Zhin's ultimate skill, Spite, renders both the target and himself completely vulnerable for a duration, making it a great tool for taking out important targets. However, Zhin suffers of limited mobility and has a lackluster performance when fighting from a distance compared to most other flankers.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Zhin's Kindle emote could be a reference to the bonfires from the Dark Souls series.
  • Zhin's Ebon Star skins are a reference to the Star Wars film series.
  • Zhin's Ebon Star voice pack also received a major change to make it sound like he had his helmet on.
  • When Zhin is on killstreak, sometimes he says "Let the Bodies hit the floor!". This is a reference to the song "Bodies" by Drowing Pool, that begins with this phrase.
