Io is one of the Champions in Paladins.

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, Jenos, 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. She can heal any player she wants to full health with moonlight, and summon her lunar guardian to heal her and her allies in the fight. When she finally gets in over her head she can lunar leap into a safe space or use it at the beginning of fights to out-flank and get the upper hand. If an area is over run with enemies or enemies gang up on her she can push them out of the way with her ultimate (Begone).
