Ki Barrier (Passive)
After casting a spell, Shen gains a shield that absorbs 52 - 120 [+14% Bonus Health] damage for 2.5 seconds (cooldown 10 seconds). Spells that successfully affect an allied or enemy champion reduce this cooldown by 4-7.5 seconds.  
Shen's power manifests as a spirit blade that he can control with abilities.
[NOTE 2See this post from G-Mang on the blades idle behaviors.]

Twilight Assault (Q)
140/130/120/110/100 Energy 
8/7.25/6.5/5.75/5 sec Cooldown 
Shen recalls his spirit blade and draws it. Enemies it collides with are slowed by 35% when moving away from Shen for the next 2 seconds. 
Shen's next 3 attacks deal 3/3.5/4/4.5/5% (+ ~1.5% per 100 AP ) of their target's max health as bonus magic damage. If the spirit blade collided with an enemy champion, those attacks deal 5/5.5/6/6.5/7% (+ ~2% per 100 AP) instead and have +50% Attack Speed.  
Each attack deals 30 extra magic damage to monsters and minions  (max 75/100/125/150/175).

Spirit's Refuge (W)
40 Energy 
18/16.5/15/13.5/12 sec Cooldown 
Shen's spirit blade creates a defensive zone for 1.75 seconds. Basic attacks that would hit Shen or an allied champion in the zone are blocked.  
If there are no champions to protect in the zone when it starts, the spirit blade will not activate until one enters or 2 seconds pass. 

Shadow Dash (E)
180 Energy 
18/16/14/12/10 sec Cooldown 
Passive: Dealing damage with Shadow Dash or Twilight Assault recovers 30-40 energy. 
Active: Shen dashes in a direction, dealing 50/75/100/125/150 [+ 12% bonus HP] physical damage to enemy champions in his path and taunting them for 1.5 seconds.

Stand United (R)
No Cost 
180/150/120 sec Cooldown 
Shen grants a shield to a target allied champion that absorbs up to 250/550/850 (+1.35 AP) damage for 5 seconds. After channeling for 3 seconds, Shen and his spirit blade teleport to the ally's location.


Shen's short form in client lore has been updated, Expect a longer story and introduction on his champion page when his champion update hits live!
'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."
