After weeks of teasers leading into the reveal of a new character, Blizzard has finally announced their brand-new character, a healer named Ana.

Armed with a sniper rifle, Ana is a long-range healer, using her sniper rifle to both heal and destroy all that come between the crosshairs. She also wields a sleep dart, a bionic grenade and an ability called Nano Boost that buffs teammates speed, attack and defense. It’s also worth noting that Ana is the mother of Pharah.

No release date has been given for the character, but you can watch her origin story here:
