The newest member of the Overwatch support squad is the extremely intelligent geneticist, Moira O’Deorain.  After showing off her new trailer at Blizzcon 2017, the Overwatch team has revealed her full story on Moira’s page.

After publishing a paper on a genetics program that could alter DNA at the cellular level, the public considered her unchecked desire and advancement at the same level of that which caused the Omnic Crisis.  While the rejection damaged her reputation, it created the opportunity to work with Overwatch’s covert ops team, Blackwatch, where she continued to work on her research as well as develop new weapons and technology.  While her participation was kept secret, she was let go after inquiries into the organization led to high ranking officials denying her affiliation with them. This led her to pursue other funding, which some believe is supported by Talon.








Biotic Grasp: Moria uses biotic energy in her left hand to heal her allies, and her right hand to shoot a long-range beam that reduces enemies’ health while recharging her healing energy.

Biotic Orb: Launches a sphere that can heal her allies and reduce her enemies health.

Fade: Moria can use this to teleport short distances.

Coalescence (Ultimate): A long-range beam that heals allies and delivers heavy damage to enemies.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
