Lian ▶️ is a Damage Champion in Paladins, added on July 12th, 2017.

Lore[ | ]

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


After a successful ploy to set herself up as the legitimate heiress to the Ruby Throne, nothing stood in Lian's way. Her sincere dedication to her family's legacy may have earned her the title of Scion, but her skill with the rifle is what won her the respect of her family's Royal Guard.

When the Magistrate called on all loyal houses to unite against the Resistance, she was honor-bound to accept, arriving from her far-off homeland to represent House Aico along with her faithful bodyguard and general, Khan, and her closest advisor, Rei. Her politics were only further rewarded when Karne stepped down, abdicating the Magistrate and the title Grand Magister, to her and House Aico.

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


While Lian had schemed her way into setting herself up as the legitimate heiress of the Ruby Throne, her sincere dedication to her family's legacy and skill with the rifle won her the respect of of her family's royal guard, as well as the title of "Scion".

When the Magistrate called on all loyal houses to aid them in their battle against the Resistance, Lian was honor-bound to accept, journeying from her far-off homeland to represent her house alongside her personal advisor and protector, Khan.

Following this, news would eventually reach House Aico of the self-proclaimed god, Jenos', return from the cosmos. Lian decided to attempt and recruit Jenos into House Aico's ranks, and sent Khan to bring him back. Though while Khan was dedicated to bringing Jenos back, House Aico was ultimately unsuccessful in recruiting the self-proclaimed god. When news of Ascension Peak reached Karne, he was not pleased with Lian.

Despite this, when the Magistrate called on the royal houses to assist in defending the Realm from Yagorath, Lian accepted the call to arms, sending Rei and Khan to assist in battle, as well as to retrieve a special codex from the Aico Library in Crosswind Hold.

Following Yagorath's defeat, Karne believed he had failed, leading to him entrusting leadership of the Magistrate to Lian and House Aico. While people celebrated the new promises of peace, under House Aico's rule, the discrimination against the Ska'drin became far worse.

Later, when Corvus was gravely injured and left for dead, Lian brought him in and called on her old friend, Lillith, in an attempt to save his life.

This was Lian's in-game bio prior to the The Damned Frontier update. It's no longer considered canon.

Summary[ | ]

Lian is a damage champion capable of dealing moderate amounts of damage in short time periods and who specializes in medium range combat and long range executions. Her semi-automatic Heirloom Rifle allows her to pressure enemy backlines and easily handle immediate threats. Unique to Lian, all her standard skills apply on-hit weapon effects such as Cauterize. Her ultimate skill, Enlightenment, deals high damage in a straight line while granting damage reduction and CC immunity while firing it, making it ideal for last stands and confirming runaway kills.

Trivia[ | ]


Lore

  • Lian's full name is seemingly Lian Amarasi-Marila.[2][3]
  • Lian rules over an entire kingdom.[4]
  • Lian and House Aico have connections to the original Paladins.[5]
  • Lian took over House Aico after her father.[6]
  • On top of being somewhat of a princess, Lian's also a commander.[7]
  • Though the Siege of Ascension Peak lore cinematic made it seem as though Lian wanted to recruit Jenos into the Magistrate, she really only wanted to recruit him into House Aico. When Karne heard of what she did he wasn't pleased.[8]
  • Though Lian is an extreme character, with her not always listening to the Magistrate, she's not meant to be evil, she just does what she believes is necessary to achieve her goals, those being to represent her house and to restore what she feels is her own, and the house's, rightful place.[9]
    • Another of Lian's goals was to unseat Karne,[10] which she eventually succeeded in.[1]
  • Lian prefers wearing formal garments over armor.[2][3]
  • Enlightenment is the embodiment of Lian's noble spirit.[11]
  • Khan and Lian aren't siblings.[12]
  • 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 Lian would be around 5'6 or 166cm tall.


Cameos

Lian appears in the following content:

  • Other
    • Khan's Orders Emote*[13]

Notable Characters that appear in Lian's own content includes:


References

  • One of Lian's voice lines, "In this game, you win or you die. There is no middle ground." (▶️), is a reference to a line from Game of Thrones.
  • Lian's default emote is likely a reference to Boa Hancock from the anime One Piece.


Concepts

  • Tencent, the company behind the defunct Chinese version of Paladins, were largely responsible for the creation of Lian.[14]
    • Lian's Dusk skin was originally meant to be her default appearance.
    • Additionally, Lian was initially envisioned as being Asian.


Other

  • Lian is one of the few champions to have received an Announcer Pack.
  • Lian is one of the only characters to have an official Twitter account, sharing this trait with Jenos and Khan; all three of which were created as part of a promotion for Siege of Ascension Peak and Khan's own release.[2][3]
  • Lian's codename was "Princess".[15]
  • Lian is tied with Jenos, Khan, and Strix as having received the most unique skins from Battle Passes.
  • In older versions of Paladins, there used to be a number of additional recolors of default champions. For Lian, these recolors included the Peridot and Veridian skins.


Champion Skins

  • Lian Collection Render Dusk Icon Dusk
    • Dusk is the time of day prior to nightfalll.
    • This skin was originally intended to be Lian's default appearance, but it was changed by Tencent, the company behind the defunct Chinese version of Paladins.[16]


  • Lian Collection Render Goddess Icon Goddess
    • This skin is based on the intepretation of Hera from one of Hi-Rez's other games, Smite.[17]
    • This skin's kill taunt against Strix "You flew too close to the sun." (▶️) could be a reference to Icarus, an angel that flew too close to the sun and burnt his wings.
    • One of this skin's jokes, "Confess your sins unto to me, child, and I will absolve you. Flank Pip? Sorry, you're beyond saving." (▶️), is a reference to a joke within the Paladins community poking fun at players who use Pip as a Flank champion as opposed to his intended purpose as a Support champion.
    • One of this skin's jokes, "I try to be more involved than other deities. Most of them just want to fight each other, or periodically race go-karts." (▶️), is likely a reference to another game by Hi-Rez, SMITE, and a limited-time event the game had known as Apollo's Racer Rumble.
    • This skin's splash art appears as a spray.
    • This skin shares its theme with God of War Fernando and Buckules Buck.
