Heroes are the essential element of Paragon, as the course of the game is dependent on their intervention. During a match, two opposing teams select five heroes that accumulate Experience and Card Experience. As a hero gains experience, they will level up, growing more powerful and gaining new abilities. All heroes have a distinct Role that defines how they affect the battlefield. A hero's appearance can be modified with Skins.
Currently 25 heroes are playable, with new heroes currently being released every 3 weeks. An additional 17 heroes are in the game's data, but they are unreleased.
