Welcome to the Lore Page where you can easily navigate through the various characters, groups, locations, races, and events in Paladins' story.

Almost all Paladins media is still considered canon[1][2][3], with the only exception seemingly being the Alpha lore[4] and Paladins Strike, the latter of which is an alternate universe[5]. It's unknown if or how Realm Royale connects to the lore.

Please avoid adding fanfictional content, this is an archive for official lore. Even if a theory is plausible, only add confirmed information.
