Ash is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

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, earned the title every time the dust settled and she was all that remained 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[edit | edit source]

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 if there are enemies near them, 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[edit | edit source]

  • Ash shares some similarities with Bellona from SMITE, another game developed by Hi-Rez Studios.
  • Ronin Ash's line ,"Gotta get back!", might be a reference to Samurai Jack's theme song.
  • The song that sings Ash is a musical work of the band: Black Sabbath - Iron Man.
  • The phrase "Iron within, iron without!" a direct reference to the watchword of the Legion of the Space Marines Iron Warriors from the Universe Warhammer 40,000.
