As the cosmic unit Yagorath devours everything on its way, the realm struggles to fight back and survive their terrible onslaught. In its darkest hour, however, a new force steps onto the battlefield to oppose The Maw’s corruption and bring hope back to the realm. She is Octavia the Indomitable, the newest playable Paladin Champion!
Octavia is the elite commander of the magistrate’s armed forces and has climbed the ranks through rudeness, determination and iron will. She’s the first in a fight and the last to leave and never leave anyone in the heat of the fight. She values discipline, honor and above all human life. Though she may carry the banner of the magistrate, she fights for all who dwell in the empire and is determined to unite the resistance and magistrate to fend off the dark threats of the Maw. Octavia has the tactical knowledge and battlefield skills necessary to stop Yagorath, and her time is now.
The newest damage champion to join Paladins, Octavia is armed with a DMR, a semi-automatic telescopic sight rifle capable of dealing high damage at medium and long ranges. At the start of a game, Octavia can choose between four different passive skills that give her entire team a bonus, allowing players to make a tactical decision that gives their squad the upper hand.
Octavia brings other tools into the fight, such as her distortion field, a dome that she can throw down and that covers a wide area. Allies are hidden and enemies disoriented in this dome, allowing Octavia to isolate firefights and protect her teammates from the oppressive fire. Octavia herself also has a jumping ability that knocks her into the air and allows her to get to new vantage points quickly. When Octavia aims at her scope in the air, she hovers for a brief moment and can fire some well-placed shots. Eventually, Octavia’s ultimate summons a barrage of lasers in a row in front of her, dealing damage to enemies who don’t get out of the way and giving her team some breathing space.
