Upon closer inspection last night, what we thought was cloth in the new Paragon hero reveal from Epic Games actually appears to be hair. Red hair. As in really red red hair.
And that reminded us of BloodRayne. You remember BloodRayne: the hack-and-slash video game series that debuted during the 6th Generation of video game consoles.
In that series, the protagonist is Rayne, a blade-wielding dhampir. She also wears a red pendant, as seen in this promotional art from EA Japan.
So, while this new Paragon character is probably not Majesco’s Rayne licensed into Epic’s MOBA, she could be. Regardless, she definitely appears to be inspired by her. Which would mean we’re getting a blood-sucking female fighter added to the Paragon hero roster, and that is awesome news!
But just this morning, the Paragon account on Instagram posted this quick little clip with the tagline “Her hunger is eternal.”

Red hair. Black outfit. Two blades. Seriously, is that Rayne?
Sadly, no. Epic has just revealed her as Countess.
Surprisingly, though she has blades, she’s considered a burst caster and not a melee fighter. Regardless, Countess is a teleporting, blade-wielding badass as evidenced from her announcement trailer. We cannot wait to play her October 25th!

Paragon is free-to-play and available for PC and PS4. We’ll be live on Twitch on Friday from 6 until 9 pm EST streaming this incredible MOBA from Epic Games!
