Riot’s tactical shooter Valorant is full of interesting and deadly agents. But who are the voices behind these characters that we have fallen in love with and sometimes hate, depending on which side of the rocket you are on? Read on to find out.
Astra – Effie Nkrumah
Astra is the first and so far the only vocal work that Nkrumah has done, although we certainly hope that it is not the last.
Violations – David Menkin
Bad Swede Breach comes out with the dangling voice of David Menkin, who has more than 30 credits for video games. Among them are Magnus from Final Fantasy XIV, Malos from Xenoblade Chronicles and The Flash from LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.
Sulfur – Steve Blum
The Brimstone captain is revived by Steve Blum, the legendary voice of Spike from Cowboy Bebop and Wolverine from the animated X-Men series.
Cypher – Nabil Elouahabi
The trapper and the voice you hear when a Cypher player spams “give me a corpse” comes from Nabil Elouahabi. Before becoming a voice actor, he was featured in Ali G Indahouse and Blitz, proving the extent that Elouahabi has had in his career.
Jett – Shannon Williams
The fast air killer of Jett is expressed by Shannon Williams, a Korean pop star known as Shannon. This is the first role of a Willaims commentator, but you can check out her Twitch page ArrumieShannon.
Killjoy – Faye Mata
Killjoy, a genius from Germany, has a familiar face to Riot. In addition to many other League of Legends titles, Faye Mata voiced LuLu, as did Sierokate in Granblue Fantasy: The Animation.
Omen – Jason Marocha
Omen’s terrifying voice, from anywhere, comes from Jason Marocha. From Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure to Megatron in Transformers Combiner Wars, Marocha has a lot of commenting experience, and Omen was no problem for him.
Phoenix – Afolabi Alli
An inflated superstar from London, Phoenix, shines with the voice of Afolabi Alli. This is his first appearance in a video game commentary. He worked on the TV show Split and was part of the Royal Shakespeare Company: The Merry Wives of Windsor.
Raze – Carolina Ravassa
Raze’s explosive personality comes from Carolina Ravassa. Best known for her work as Sombra of Overwatch, she also appeared in Just Cause 4 and Grand Theft Auto 5.
Reyna – Karina Altamirano
The soul sucking from Mexico, Reyna, is expressed by Karina Altamirano. Karina is best known for her work in the Spanish dubbing of the Digimon Data Squad team, which created more than seven voices for the series.
Sage – Naomi Yang
The bastion of China is expressed by Naomi Yang. Yang delves into commentary for the first time after her acting career, where she is best known for her roles in Lilting and The Salisbury Poisonings.
Skye – Miranda O’Hare
O’Hare began Australia’s best soap opera, Home and Away, before working on video games. She also did a voice job at XCOM: Chimera Squad
Owl – Aaron Vodovoz
Scout, the Owl, is brought to you by Aaron Vodovoz. This is his first step in commenting, but you’ll see more of him in The King’s Man, due out in 2021.
Viper – Ashly Burch
Scientist Viper is happy to poison his victims with the voice of Ashly Burch. In the past, Burch has voiced Chloe Price of Life Is Strange, Aloy of Horizon Zero Dawn and Sasha Braus of Attack on Titan.
