The large roster of heroes in Overwatch means that there are a variety of characters of different ages and heights to play as.
One of the biggest appeals of Blizzards Overwatch is the ability to choose between a variety of heroes; each of which is mostly distinct from one another. These characters often control and feel unique in terms of mechanics, and each has their own set of fun abilities and weapons to dominate foes with. This vast array of moves and powers in the arena makes for a fun, frantic time.
Not only this, but all of the 30-plus heroes come with distinguishable personalities, physical traits, and mostly separate backstories. While there is some overlap, many of the origin stories are isolated and take place in different locales. This sets the stage for some entertaining reading material and even animated shorts featuring some of the fans favorite Overwatch heroes. Though it can also be tough to keep track of all information regarding the games vast, ever-expanding lineup. This piece will serve as a handy, detailed aid, which will sum up many major details of each playable character in Overwatch.
21 Echo (Age: Classified, Height: Unknown, Birth Year: Classified)
Little is known about this distinct Omnic — though their origins can be traced to Singaporean scientist Dr. Mina Liao, whos also a founding member of Overwatch. This sophisticated weapon would be crafted in the aftermath of the Omnic Crisis, made to adapt to the form of other combatants.
The destruction in the wake of the Crisis brought a more conservative sensibility, which was factored into the Echo project. This meant certain fail-safes, protections, and other limitations were placed on Echo, along with a limit on independent decision-making.
Still, their versatility, mobility, and mimicking powers make this DPS hero uniquely useful.
D.Va is a former professional gamer who now uses her skills to pilot a state-of-the-art mech in defense of her homeland. She is a very competitive individual, and coupled with her pro-gamer skills, this makes her an extremely effective mech pilot. Never backing down, D.Va always plays to win. While she projects a carefree, irreverant attitude, D.Va is burdened by the emotional cost of defending her homeland, and the facade the South Korean media projects on her.
Behind closed doors, Myung could admit to admiring what Overwatch had stood for, but South Korea was still bound to respect the Petras Act, and MEKA couldnt defy direct orders. Before the debate could progress, an alarm sounded—Null Sector was attacking Busan, with thousands of omnics being deployed by drop pods from a command ship. MEKA Squad was deployed to repel them. Song requested permission to attack the ship directly, but Myung refused, instead ordering the squad to clear the enemy from Busans evacuation routes. However, it became clear that they were caught between the need to defend the city, and the fact that the ship could deploy apparently limitless reinforcements.
As time went on, the cost of defending South Korea from the Gwishin began to take its toll on Song. In one battle in Busan during a thunder storm, the squad barely managed to defeat the omnics, but the other mechs were put out of commision due to serious damage and their pilots sustained some injuries; only Song came out of it relatively unscathed. While the rest of the squad went on leave and the media reporting that Song was celebrating the victory by schmoozing with celebrities, Song had actually chosen to remain on active duty and spent time over the next week fixing and fine-tuning her mech alongside Dae-hyun, who had also joined MEKA as her assigned mechanic. As she stated that the squad and the rest of Busan were counting on her to keep the city safe, and any mistakes on her part could cost them everything, Dae-hyun recognized the emotional weight Song was carrying. He tried to convince her that she needed a break and that it was okay to ask for help, not needing to bear it alone, but she assured him that she had things under control.
Like her father before her, Song became a pro-gamer. She became a Mecha Guardian V player in high school, quickly ascending to the #1 rank, winning the world championship, surpassing her teammate Yuna Lee  and rival Kyung-soo Hann. A fierce competitor, Song played to win at any cost, and gained a well-earned reputation for showing no mercy to her opponents.
Song now fearlessly charges into battle alongside the rest of her MEKA unit, ready to spring to her nations defense at a moments notice. Not long before the Second Omnic Crisis, she began to stream combat operations to her adoring fans, and her growing following turned her into a global icon. Sponsorship deals and her fanbase provided her with the means to customize her mech, such as Nano Cola.
32 D.va (Age: 19, Height: 5’6”, Birth Year: 2057)
The mech-laden gamer, otherwise known as Hana Song, got her start in the game at a rather young age. D.va has quite the repertoire for one whos yet to reach adulthood.
This tank hero has been a prominent figure in fighting Omnic forces and defending her homeland in her explosive mech. But shes also found time to be an actress, pro gamer, and of course, one of Overwatchs go-to tank heroes.
