    My wild theory about Shen

    One of the meanings of the word Shen is "God"
    If you listened to his conversations, it becomes pretty clear that Shen seems to be a God in disguise.

    And what God?
    I say he's Anu - or at least his soul.

    Aside from just guessing, I think it could be a possibility because Anu reportedly was a being made out of crystals/gems.
    Shen is a jeweler and searching for a gem where an evil is trapped that kills everyone who touches it.
    Only Shen can touch it, because "everything was already taken from him" - I take it he means his shattered body.

    What do you guys think?

    That is pretty wild

    I have heard people speculate that he is actually Malthael, the archangel who vanished while searching for the Worldstone.

    I think Malthael is too gloomy to disguise himself as such a quirky guy.

    After this game got released, I realized that the developers dont give a f... about lore so I really doubt that they will think that deeply. He is just an annoying guy and will stay so.

    That's true, angels take themselves too seriously

    How's this: Shen is not a god, but he was given the task of recovering the jewel by a god. Likely as a punishment for some past misdeeds; perhaps Shen was the one reponsible for letting the jewel losse in the first place.

    Annoying? He's like one of the only guys that isn't a wooden plank in the game

    We all know Cain's coming back as the Angel of Wisdom...that would be interesting though if Shen was the avatar of Anu.

    Re: My wild theory about Shen

    Although that is some pretty wild speculation it could be true! I also had the feeling that he was a god in disguise.

    [Update - I think I confused something here. It probably isn't him. Sorry about that...

    It can't be Malthael, though.

    What? I think this has to be a mistake from Blizz.
    Malthael seems to be more important than being used for something forgettable like this.
