The newest hero of Overwatch has finally been revealed! Please welcome the Brigitte Lindholm, daughter of everyone’s favorite Turret-builder Torbjorn!

 

As was theorized by many, the upcoming 27th hero of Overwatch was indeed a Support Hero. We’ve seen in her in other Overwatch materials like Reinhardt’s Animated Short “Honor and Glory” as well as in the Overwatch Comic “Dragon Slayer”. But let’s get to know a bit more about her.

 

Story

Scene from Overwatch Short “Honor and Glory”

Brigitte is the youngest daughter of Torbjorn and is a 28 year-old Engineer / Adventurer. She has a love for armor and defenses which is a bit of a contrast from her father’s specialty of weapons creation. Instead of becoming Torbjorn’s apprentice, however, she ended up becoming a squire to family-friend Reinhardt. It was during this tenure that she became closer and closer to Reinhardt. Soon, she eventually realized that she would be a greater help to him as a fellow warrior rather than just a mechanic. She trained under Reinhardt and she even made her own suit of armor.
