Devona is the nominal leader of a group of friends comprising of Aidan, Mhenlo, Eve, and Cynn. She is a warrior who places great value in honor and duty. Her father, Mordakai, died defending Ascalon in the Guild Wars during the battle for Kyhlo. She greatly admires his sacrifice and aspires to be as great as her father was.


Lore from the official website:

Nation: Ascalon
Birthplace: Rin
Age: 24
Devona is quite serious and very direct in her dealings with other people. She aspires to be a great Warrior, just like her father. Sometimes this aspiration turns into a tremendous internal pressure to succeed. Devona's father was one of the leaders of a prestigious and well-respected guild — Ascalon's Chosen. He lost his life defending the city walls against a raid by an Orrian guild during the last Guild War. Devona was only a little girl at the time, but since that day, she has dedicated her life to mastering the martial arts of sword and hammer.
Devona is the level-headed leader of the party. She always assesses any situation before rushing in. This sometimes puts her at odds with the brash Cynn. Despite this seeming level of restrain and control, Devona does have a temper, and it can get the best of her. She would sacrifice her own life to save the life of a friend, and she frequently puts herself in harm's way to protect those who travel with her. Devona has a very deep sense of loyalty and duty. To her, there would be no greater honor than to follow in the footsteps of her father and give her life defending that which is most dear to her.

  • High damage output.

  • Does not have defensive skills.
  • "Charge!" is not a very useful elite in a fight.


- "When I was young, my father was a member of Ascalon's Chosen. Now I too am a member of that same guild. There is nothing I won't do for my comrades, no risk I won't take for a friend. There is little I hold in higher regard than loyalty."
Kaineng City "When I was a child, my father used to tell me great tales of passing over the Shiverpeaks when he served with Ascalon's Chosen. My father would never believe I came all the way to Cantha to help fight a war against this great plague. I hope he can see me from the mists and is proud of me. Every enemy crushed beneath my hammer is another tribute to his memory.

Did you need something?"

Echovald Forest "Just look at the beauty the Kurzicks have brought into this forest. It's no wonder they protect it from the Luxons. Enough talk, we should look to the task at hand.

Did you need anything?"

- "I wasn't kidding when I said this would be a lot of work. Back in Tyria, my father died protecting people like the Istani. I'm going to live up to his memory, and show them what it means to be a real Warrior. The Kournans could do with a dose of honor, justice, and respect. Right in the face."

Devona, NPC

In the Prophecies Campaign, Devona is a soldier of Ascalon, helping to maintain peace and stability. After the Searing, she and her group of friends followed Prince Rurik to lead refugees across the Shiverpeak Mountains to Kryta.

The Factions Campaign showed that Devona (and her group of friends) had followed Mhenlo to Cantha when the latter received a request for aid from Master Togo. Together with Mhenlo, they would later travel to the Echovald Forest to seek the Kurzicks' aid.

In the Nightfall Campaign, Devona and her friends have answered Kormir's call for help. They aided the Sunspears as they sought to avert an apocalyse.

Skills Used

As a Prophecies NPC in pre-Searing Ascalon


Pre-Searing Ascalon "Courage is the true hallmark of an Ascalon. That's what I believe. My father died defending the Great Wall, and if I have the chance, I'll do the same. Is there something you'd like to talk about?"
Lion's Gate "My father used to cross the Shiverpeaks often when he served in the Vanguard for the King of Ascalon. Those days are long past, though my memories of him have never faded. As Prince Rurik led the refugees from Ascalon across the mountains, I felt for the first time I was walking in the footsteps of my father. I hope he is watching me from the Mists and is proud of what I have become. And if he isn't, he will be soon enough... for I will crush these undead beneath my hammer, and each of them so destroyed shall bring further the glory of our family!" [sic]
Divine Path "It was a tough fight, was it not?"
