The story behind Astra

The story of Valorant begins with an event called “The First Light”. Details about the event are scarce.

The only known fact is that the First Light was the first reported discovery of the rare element Radianite, which changed the entire world and its future.

Radianite is a rare resource that has untapped energy potential. It can be used in various types of equipment with great results.

Radianite can grant special abilities to certain agents. These abilities are very different from each other, with different levels of results. Individuals who have this ability are known as Radiants.

Kingdom Corporation, an organization in the world of Valorant, aims to harness the power of Radianite and use it for nefarious purposes. Kingdom Corporation will be present on every Valorant map.

In order to prevent the Kingdom Corporation and protect Radianite, the shadow organizations formed the Valorant Protocol in response to First Light.

The Valorant Protocol recruits agents. Some are Radiants, while others use Radianite weapons from around the world to complete missions.

The newest agent to join Valorant Protocol is Ghana controller Astra, who is also a Radiant.
