This article contains plot details and potential spoilers for the Caraval series. If you have not begun reading the books or are not too far into the story, please do refrain from reading.

Paloma Dragna, also known as Paradise the Lost, is Marcello Dragna's wife and Scarlett Dragna's and Donatella Dragna's mother.


The poster in Elantine's Most Wanted shows Paradise the Lost to have an oval face with dark hair and wide eyes that narrow at the corners. She looks like Scarlett.


Paradise the Lost is described by Empress Elantine as "intelligent and clever, quick to laugh, and to love." She was a spirited and prideful woman who never gave up, nor said no to a challenge. Paradise was a bold and enchanting young woman.



In Caraval, Paradise the Lost is introduced as Paloma, Scarlett and Donatella's mother who ran away when the sisters were young.


In Legendary, Tella discovers that her mother is actually Paradise the Lost, an infamous thief from Valenda.
