Caspian is a Flank Champion in Paladins, added on August 17th, 2022 (TBA).

Lore[]

This is Caspian's official bio currently found in her champion page in-game.


There are few still alive with the skill… the alluring performance — nay! the enrapturing, dazzling SPECTACLE that is what sights behold you when witnessing this dashing rogue’s deadly skills and quicksilver tongue in action. Blessed with arcane weapons and years of streetwise knowledge and training, he takes what he wants and gives some of it away – if he likes you, of course.

Recently finding himself in possession of an abyssal artifact most would deem too dangerous to handle (Hey, it was just lying around!), Caspian, Thief of Hearts (and Treasure) will have his work cut out for him to survive what comes next.

The pursuit of hedonistic perfection is a dangerous occupation, but when has that ever stopped anyone?

This is an unofficial version of Caspian's bio intended to more clearly present all currently known information regarding him. Sources can be found here.


A notable thief wielding arcane weapons who spends his time enjoying himself and stealing, occasionally giving some of his stolen goods to people he likes.

At one point, he encountered and defeated two Abyssal entities approaching a chest, inside of which was an Abyssal headpiece. He later showed it to Saati and invited her to tag along with him.

Trivia[]

  • The Abyssal headwear Caspian finds in his teaser trailer is identical to the one being worn by the Abyssal Entity featured in Lillith's cards Sheer Ascent and Virulent.
  • Oddly, the moon appears to be in one piece in Caspian's trailer, as opposed to being noticeably shattered.
  • One of Caspian's lines (▶️) implies his weapons are capable of changing shape.
  • 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 Caspian would be around 6' or 182cm tall.

  • Caspian bears a strong resemblance to Sett from League of Legends. It's not known if this was intentional.
  • The line "Ah, Marauder's Port, a wretched hive of sin and inequity. Reminds me of home." (▶️) is a reference to a line from Star Wars.

  • Caspian had numerous unused designs prior to his final look being settled on, most of them far more feminine, some are far more revealing, and others have a pirate-theme.

  • Caspian is the first champion since the introduction of the standard method of promoting new champions that began with Atlas (five posts on Twitter featuring card artwork and a quote) to only receive four teasers prior to his trailer.
  • Caspian's codename was "Sexy Scoundrel".[2]
  • Hidden underneath Caspian's regular hair is another more closely shaved set of hair.

  • Caspian freespirit small.png Free Spirit
    • A free spirit is an independent or uninhibited person.


  • Caspian changeofheart small.png Change of Heart
    • Come on, you know what having a change of heart means. At least, I hope you do.
