Lore[edit | edit source]

For eons, the moon goddess Io watched over the Realm. Then, disaster struck: the Darkness smothered the goddess's light and shattered the moon that hung above the lands.

Pieces of the moon fell to the Shattered Desert, where Io's faithful watched over them. They kept vigil for the shattered goddess, praying that one day she would return to guide them.

As the Magistrate marched on the desert sands, intending to claim the power of the moon shards in their vicious struggle with the Resistance, that day finally came. At the urging of her celestial contemporary, Io revealed her true form to fight for her people and stand against those who would threaten their survival.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Io is a support character who can hold her own for a decent amount of time. Her Moonlight can rapidly heal any teammate and also mitigate some damage with the Goddess' Blessing talent, and with the Life Link talent, she can also provide AOE heals with the Guardian Spirit ability. Additionally, because Luna is able to contest objectives, this can be very useful for all five members of a team to push forward. Her mobility ability, Lunar Leap, can both get her out of difficult situations and make her a harder target to hit while leaping. However, if she can't escape a flanker, Io can also rely on Luna's stun to win fights.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • According to a dev blog found here, Io and Luna are not the same being, but two distinct entities.
    • For ease of access, the line in question revealing this can be found here: "So while Io is fox-like she isn’t the same being as Luna but they obviously relate to each other thematically in such a way that you as the player know wherever Io goes Luna is never far behind."
    • According to the same dev blog, Luna is Io's familiar, as stated in the sentence: "This is her familiar so that where Io goes Luna is never far behind."
  • Based on a dev statement revealing Viktor to be around 5'9 or 175cm tall, it was discovered that Io would be around 4'7 or 139cm tall.

  • Io is a moon on the planet Jupiter, just as Io is the moon goddess.
  • Io's fox companion is named Luna, in ancient Roman religion and myth, Luna is the divine embodiment of the Moon.
  • One of Io's jokes "Don't touch the t-tail it takes an eternity to get it looking this good." (▶️) references a similar joke of Jenos' "Don't touch the hair! It takes centuries to get it looking this good." (▶️).

  • The icon for Io's Sacrifice talent uses the same art as her Broken Deity card. This is the talent's icon for reference.
  • The card Full Moon is featured as the background of Vora's card Unified in Purpose.
  • For one of Vora's teasers, an alternate version of the art featured in the card Sanctum of Faith was used, which removed the two characters present, as well as the faint orange light.
  • Prior to Io's reveal, Paladins artist Thunderbrush would change his Twitter profile picture to this image on June 4th, 2019.
  • As stated here, Io was initially intended to be Korean, but her design changed.

  • Io feral small.pngFeral
  • Feral is a term used to describe animals that live in the wild, but descended from domesticated species.
  • This skin lacking Io's headpiece could be a reference to her now appearing slightly wilder.
  • Io starfall small.pngStarfall

  • Io piratestreasure small.pngIo eightoceans small.pngPirate's Treasure / Eight Oceans

  • These skins' are based on Magical Girl anime, particularly Sailor Moon.
  • These skins' personality is a reference to a stereotypical anime protagonist, as a result, also making many references to the power of friendship.
  • The joke "The enemy captured the objective during my transformation sequence last game! Not one of my finest moments..." (▶️) is a reference to how magical girl transformation sequences often go on for far too long.
  • The joke "Is it 7 AM already? Oh no, I'm already late for school and it's just my first day!" (▶️) is a reference to a common trope in anime, where the main character is late for school on their first day.
  • The line "They're on our fluffy tails!" (▶️) may be a reference to the anime The Helpful Fox Senko-san, which features a kitsune with a very fluffy tail; one the main character enjoys fluffing a lot.
  • These skins' spawn chatter line with Koga "Haven't I seen you somewhere before? Reading a uh... *clears throat* book of sorts?" (▶️) references male anime characters shamelessly reading questionable magazines.
  • The line "Heal me, senpai!" (▶️) is a reference to a common term used in anime to describe an upperclassman.
  • The line "Eh..." (▶️) is possibly a reference to Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion, which featured her saying this line very frequently.
  • One of these skins' jokes are a reference to a popular phrase amongst the "weeb" culture; "Your waifu is trash!" (▶️).
    • Waifu refers to a fictional character an anime fan considers a wife. Husbando, an alternative, means husband.
  • These skins share their theme with Stellar Sorceress Imani, Stellar Sentinel Inara, Stellar Mender Seris, Gentleman Jenos, and Galactic Conqueror Vora.
