Lore[edit]

In this world resides powerful evil, intent on destroying everything crafted by Gods and Men. Without guardians of equal strength, all would have fallen long ago. Zhong Kui was once a man with ambitions no greater than scholastic excellence, but in death became the perfect shield against evil’s onslaught.

Zhong Kui sought to pit his brilliant mind against the Imperial Examinations, tests to select councilors for the Emperor. With ease, he passed, but when the emperor saw his hideous face, he cast the scholar out. Offended, furious, Zhong Kui hurled himself repeatedly at the palace gates until his body was broken.

For his crime, Zhong Kui’s soul was judged by the King of Hell, but where the Emperor saw only ugliness, the King of Hell saw potential armed with genius. Zhong Kui was appointed Lord of Demons, tasked to forever hunt and ensnare the evils of the world.

For centuries, home owners and shopkeepers have adorned their buildings with Zhong Kui’s likeness, for that visage that once horrified the emperor now glares with purpose at unwelcome demons. Yet these days, it is not just shops and homes in peril, but the whole world. It does not take a mind like Zhong Kui’s to see evil’s hand in this War of the Gods. The time has come to bring these demons to task, and Zhong Kui means to smite them all.

Skills[edit]

Passive - Demon Bag
The demons that Zhong Kui captures from Exorcism are stored in his demon bag, giving him additional protections for each demon captured. When Recall Demons is activated, Zhong Kui gains double the protections from his Demon Bag, but eventually losing all stacks when the bag is empty. Notes:
 Bullet.png The maximum stacks for this ability is 20.
 Bullet.png At max stacks it provides +40 Protections.
 Bullet.png Protections: 2 per captured demon
1st Ability - Expose Evil
Zhong Kui pastes a card on all enemies in front of him, marking them as a demon, slowing and damaging them each second while they are marked. If the card is removed, 40% of the remaining damage is done instantly. Notes:
 Bullet.png Deals a total of 100/150/200/250/300 (+75% of your magical power) damage.
 Bullet.png Damage per Tick:20/30/40/50/60 (+15% of your magical power)  Bullet.png Slow: 20%
 Bullet.png Card Lifetime: 5s  Bullet.png Cooldown: 10 seconds
 Bullet.png Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 mana
2nd Ability - Exorcism
Zhong Kui drives out the demons of his enemies, dealing damage as they leave the body. Demons marked by Expose Evil are captured by Zhong Kui, healing him per demon captured (up to 3), and have the card removed. Notes:
 Bullet.png This ability can heal for up to 60/105/150/195/240 (+60% of your magical power).
 Bullet.png Damage: 75/125/175/225/275 (+50% of your magical power)  Bullet.png Heal: 20/35/50/65/80 (+20% of your magical power)
 Bullet.png Cooldown: 10 seconds  Bullet.png Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 mana
3rd Ability - Book of Demons
When fired, the Book of Demons deals damage and stuns enemies, stunning marked enemies for 2x the duration and removing the card. When this ability is not on cooldown, the Book of Demons flies nearby Zhong Kui, firing for 50% of Zhong Kui's basic damage. Notes:
 Bullet.png Units under the effect of Expose Evil are stunned for 1/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8s instead.
 Bullet.png This ability's hitbox moves clockwise around Zhong Kui.
 Bullet.png Damage: 60/115/170/225/280 (+50% of your magical power)  Bullet.png Stun: .5/.6/.7/.8/.9s (2x for marked targets)
 Bullet.png Radius: 20  Bullet.png Cooldown: 15 seconds
 Bullet.png Cost: 75/80/85/90/95 mana
Ultimate - Recall Demons
Upon activation, demons pulse out from his bag at nearby players every second for 5s. They chase and accelerate over time, doing damage to enemies as they enter the body. Zhong Kui is immune to Knockback and Slows for the duration. Notes:
 Bullet.png While active, Demon Bag' stacks are doubled, increasing protections. After this ability ends, the stacks are reset.
 Bullet.png The amount of stack from Zhong Kui's passive has no effect on the amount of demons that'll come out.
 Bullet.png This ability can deal up to 400/475/550/625/700 (+100% of your magical power) damage.
 Bullet.png Damage: 80/95/110/125/140 (+20% of your magical power)  Bullet.png Radius: 40
 Bullet.png Cooldown: 90 seconds  Bullet.png Cost: 100 mana
