Omen is an Agent in VALORANT.



A phantom of a memory, Omen hunts in the shadows. He renders enemies blind, teleports across the field, then lets paranoia take hold as his foe scrambles to learn where he might strike next.

Omen is a phantom of a man with mysterious origins and many names. He has a limited memory of his past, though he does remember being involved in something that caused him to be ripped apart and killed. All he knows that links to who he used to be is a place known as Point Light, a past friendship with Sabine "Viper" Callas, and feelings of restoration with every kill he makes. Contributing to the formation of the VALORANT Protocol, Omen would go on to become its third recruit and serve as one of its more experienced agents, all while he continues his search for answers about what truly happened to him over a decade ago.[1][2]

   If I must live in this nightmare my enemies might as well join me.
— Omen (Match Start)

A living nightmare, Omen takes full advantage of his shadowed physique and will not hesitate to eliminate his enemies using the forces of paranoia and fear. He is cynical in nature, which stems from him experiencing extreme pain as he was condemned to remain in the state that he is today. If there's one person who wants to know more about his mysterious circumstances, it's Omen himself - and quite desperately so.

Despite his fearsome nature, Omen shows some friendliness towards people he knows well such as Viper, shown by being able to call her by her real name despite her warning other agents to never do so. He has been known to knit as a way to help him focus.


Omen wears gray armor, black pants, and a purple hooded cape. His arms are wrapped in bandages while never revealing his form underneath. His face cannot be seen under his hood, with only three bright blue slits being present instead.

Whenever Omen activates his ultimate ability, he fully appears in the form of a dark shade.

Spotify Playlist


  • One of Omen's associated names is partially mentioned by Viper in an interaction between the two.
    • Viper icon.png    "Joh-...I mean, Omen. Keep yourself together, you're still needed."
      • A previous version of this quote had Viper call him "Fre-" instead. This version is listed in the audio file's update history. However, this was an intentional change as both of these names have been short for two names revealed to be associated with Omen by a blackmailer, in addition to having several others aliases. Despite this, Omen's true name is still not known.[1]
  • Skye notes that, despite her radiant powers that usually allow her to feel and sense the natural world around her, she loses Omen when he teleports, suggesting there is something unnatural about the process.
  • Omen often knits as a way to help him focus.
  • When Omen was contacted by the Blackmailer, the Blackmailer specifically denoted Omen's radiant classification with an asterisk, suggesting there is something different about Omen compared to other radiants.


  • Prior to the global launch of VALORANT and the end of the Closed Beta, Omen originally had sharp light blue eyes, rather than the current triple vertical slashes on his "face."
