Ash is a Front Line Champion in Paladins, added on June 1st, 2017.

Lore[]

Ash made a name for herself in the Magistrate army by volunteering for front-line duty using experimental heavy armor and siege weaponry. Lacking finesse or subtlety, she more than makes up for it with brutal tactics and overkill.

The War Machine, as she is called by her allies and enemies alike, earns the title every time the dust settles and she is all that remains on the scorched battlefield. When the Resistance emerged and brought the war to Crosswind Hold, Ash led the charge against them with fury and determination.

Summary[]

Ash is a front line champion who wields a flak cannon that is effective up to medium range. She specializes in point control through heavy crowd control and damage reduction with her skills. Her cannon projectiles prematurely explode after traveling a certain distance, making Ash unique in her ability to damage enemies around corners or under ledges with only her primary weapon attack. Her ultimate skill plants a banner that provides her with damage immunity while within its area of effect, making Ash ideal for last stands or to stall and buy time for her team.

Trivia[]

  • Based on a dev statement revealing Viktor to be around 5'9 or 175cm tall, and comparing it to model sizes in-game and out of game, it was discovered that Ash would be around 6' or 182cm tall.

  • Ash shares some similarities with Bellona from SMITE, another game developed by Hi-Rez Studios. For example, the removed talent 'Rally Here' is named after Bellona's ultimate voice line.
  • The phrase "Iron within, iron without!" (▶️) is a direct reference to the watchword of the Legion of the Space Marines Iron Warriors from the Universe Warhammer 40,000.
  • The line "I don't give a damn about my reputation." is a reference to the song Bad Reputation.

  • Ash had many concept designs prior to her final look being settled on. These designs can be seen here and here.[1]
    • Weapon concepts for Ash can also be seen here.

  • In older versions of Paladins, there used to be a number of additional recolors of default champions. For Ash, these recolors included the Tempered skin.

  • Ash hellion small.pngHellion
  • This skin's name references a troublemaking type of person.


  • Ash crest small.pngHeirloom Crest


  • Ash ronin small.pngRonin
  • This skin's line "I-idiot. It's not like I was trying to protect you or a-anything!" (▶️) is a reference to a stereotypical Tsundere, a common character archetype in anime.
  • The line "You're amazing, senpai!" (▶️) is a reference to a common term used in anime to describe an upperclassman.
  • This skin's kill taunt against Makoa "Tonight I dine on turtle soup!" (▶️) is a reference to the Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  • As can be seen in a sketch for this skin's splash art, the skin was originally meant to feature hair covering one of its eyes.
  • This skin's splash art appears as a spray.


  • Ash xeno small.pngXeno-Buster


  • Ash street small.pngStreet Style


  • Ash skadrin small.pngAsh scorned small.pngSka'drin / Scorned

  • These skins reveal Wekono and Mal'Damba have some connection with the Ska'drin. The lines in question are confirmed somewhat canon here.
  • The mark that appears when these skins use their ultimate is the same mark that appears when Talus uses his ultimate.
  • The mark that appears when these skins have Kinetic Burst active is similar to the mark that appears when Vatu uses his ultimate ability.
  • A Ska'drin variant of Corvus is visible in the background of these skin's card art. This was prior to Corvus' official reveal.
    • It was revealed here, that the figure wielding scythes in these skin's splash art was a Ska'drin version of Maeve.
    • The last figure on the left is thought to be a Ska'drin version of Strix.
