Villain Overview

Forsaken by our goddess... Slaughtered in a war that was not our own... The people of the Shattered Desert were lost to history with no one left to tell their tale! Heh, or so it is thought.
~ One of Vora's lines upon starting a match.

Vora, also known by her title The Harbinger, is a playable antagonist and part of the Darkness in Paladins. She is a Flank champion that was introduced on October 28th, 2020.

She is voiced by Stephanie Panisello.

Official Bio

"A life, once devoted to Io, the Moon Goddess. Her sacred martial order was one tasked with protecting ancient seals, but even they did not know the extent of the chaos beneath. Feeling forsaken by her Goddess, surrounded by unanswered prayers and broken bodies, she has chosen to embrace that chaos. The Realm is on a path of self-destruction, but she will deliver it from that fate. She brings the end... of those wars, of that suffering - an end to everything. Those who know her dread her coming, for she is Vora, Harbinger of the End of the Realm; and they are not prepared."


Originally an acolyte of the Moon Goddess Io, Vora grew up hearing stories about her goddess, how she loved and cared for them all. Vora lead a happy life, and joined the martial order tasked with protecting the ancient seal which held chaos at bay.

It wasn't until her hometown and seal became the victim of yet another battle between the Magistrate and Resistance, with her fellow warriors, her friends and family, all perishing in the conflict. Furious at her goddess for not appearing to save them, as well as enraged at the Magistrate and Resistance, both claiming to fight for justice, but neither helping pick up the pieces of her destroyed home, Vora outlook changed completely; life was a large game of chess, with individuals such as herself disposable pawns. She could try to make her own space at the table, but instead Vora decided to flip it completely.

The Darkness sealed away, Yagorath, would make Vora an offer, one she accepted, and with it, the power to protect herself, as well as accomplish her new goal of ending suffering by putting an end to the Realm itself.

With this new power, she would attack her former hometown, seeking revenge on the goddess who had abandoned her, Vora would destroy Io's statue, and later come into conflict with the time traveler Atlas, who had come back to stop her. She would later assist Yagorath in her battle against Atlas and various other champions.


After losing her loved ones, Vora's personality became incredibly dark and sadistic. At points mentioning she wishes she could torture certain characters further. While possibly being influenced by Yagorath, Vora is aware of what she's doing.

She is also extremely judgmental and stubborn, insulting almost every other character and their motives, only mildly respecting those who use the Magistrate and Resistance for their own gain, such as Maeve and Skye. Though she does also show compassion for Grohk, who she possibly sees in a similar situation as she was with Io.

Vora is also extremely self-centered, refusing to say things such as "Thanks", "Please", or "Sorry", as well as being ungrateful when healed or when an ally is on a killstreak.

Though Vora takes herself incredibly seriously to the point she never jokes, she does seem to have a passion for dancing, with many of her lines referencing this, various emotes, as well as her entire fighting style being based on it.

Powers and Abilities

Vora is a seemingly skilled fighter, having been assigned to guard the ancient seal, after accepting Yagorath's offer, Vora gained more power and abilities, such as the ability to shapeshift her body into a red goop like state, allowing her to sneak past enemies or use parts of her body as a means of pulling herself around.
