Raze is an Agent in VALORANT.

Profile

Biography

Raze explodes out of Brazil with her big personality and big guns. With her blunt-force-trauma playstyle, she excels at flushing entrenched enemies and clearing tight spaces with a generous dose of “boom.”

Tayane Alves is an engineer coming from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, with a strong enthusiasm for explosives and paint - usually combined. Holding strong objections towards Kingdom Corporation's operations in Bahia, Alves was involved in driving the company out of her home state and forcing them to abandon their sites there, the marks of her tools staining the plots as a testament to her victories. Hired since then to work for the VALORANT Protocol as its twelfth agent, "Raze", Alves now sows her chaos against bigger threats to Earth. However, as the paint fades from Salvador's walls, Raze cannot afford to leave her home completely behind, lest Kingdom look to make its return there.

Personality

   I promise I'll get 'em. Might take down a city block along the way but...hey. A win's a win
— Raze (Match Start)

The one-woman party from Bahia, Raze is always playful, impulsive, and spontaneous. She radiates chaotic energy and creates havoc on the battlefield, destroying every obstacle that is blocking her path. According to Sage, she can be impatient and won't stick to plans. She is notoriously cheeky, as seen when she earned Cypher's ire after constantly breaking his gadgets.

Fun-loving as she is, she refers to her fellow agents as family and always assures them that she'll be the one leading the fireworks display.

Appearance

Raze is a woman with a brown skin tone, always sporting her orange cap worn backwards accompanied by her headphones. Her hair is arranged in multiple braids held together by gold-colored hair rollers. She wears a sleeveless, orange top that exposes her midriff and is covered by a chestplate with the word 'BOOM' spray-painted on the front. She wears dark colored pants with a splatter of paint by the left thigh, held by a strap wherein her paintshell grenades are attached.
