Reaper

Overwatch

Forged with Jeff Reynolds and Kristen Ashton

Featured Forger: DravenDresden


Introduction

Jealousy - such a simple word with such far reaching implications.

Gabriel Reyes joined the US military and eventually entered into a soldier enhancement program. During this time, it can be assumed he earned his powers of hyper decay and regeneration - something that allowed him to pull his body back together even after being apparently obliterated.

A fierce combatant, he was invited to join Overwatch where he helped stop the Omnic Crisis. Following the victory, Jack Morrison, not Reyes, was selected to be the official first commander of Overwatch.

It was here the jealousy is known to have set in. Reyes coveted that position and not getting it sent him into a spiral downward, one that led to him seeking revenge on Jack and all those “good guys” that stayed true to Overwatch.


DravenDresden’s Choices

Gabriel Reyes, now known as Reaper, is a short ranged, global auto-attack assassin.

Alternative skins: Gabriel Reyes, Pumpkinhead, Deadpool

D - Death Walks Among You (75sec CD)
Reaper’s Trait allows him to travel anywhere his team has vision.  Reaper transforms into a cloud of black smoke and travels at immense speed to his selected location.  Reaper would not be able to travel thru the terrain, but would be able to travel thru heroes and abilities.  There is no visual indicator for enemies to see his destination.  This ability would have a 1sec wind-up.


Q - Shadow Step (15sec CD)
Reaper targets an area within his own personal Line of Sight (not affected by teammates or minions) and after a .75second delay teleports to that area.  Reaper gains 10 armor at the start of the cast and lasts for 2 seconds.

W - Wraith Form (12sec CD)
Reaper goes into Wraith Form for 2 seconds, gaining the Unstoppable and Unkillable buffs.  He is also unable to attack in this form.

E - Darkness Incarnate (10sec CD)
Allows Reaper to fire his guns while moving for 6 seconds.

R1 - Death Blossom (75sec CD)
Reaper’s 1st Ultimate, Death Blossom, works nearly identical to Valla’s Strafe.  The range of this Ult is 1/2

R2 - Hell’s Gate (90sec CD)
Reaper channels the power of Death and rapidly empties his guns into targets in a selected area.  This would work exactly like Karazhim’s 7-Sided Strike, save that this is 8 shots and each shot does 15% more damage than the previous.

Trait- “Death Walks Among You” Featured Forger Ability

Reaper’s Trait allows him to travel anywhere his team has vision.  Reaper transforms into a cloud of black smoke and travels at immense speed to his selected location.  Reaper would not be able to travel thru the terrain, but would be able to travel thru heroes and abilities.  There is no visual indicator for enemies to see his destination.  This ability would have a 1sec wind-up.

Mount- “Batman-like bat cycle”

Q- “Hellfire Shotguns”

In this build Reaper doesn't have auto attacks- he uses this basic ability as his auto attacks. Each time he activates this ability he will fire a shotgun blast from his Hellfire Shotguns. These are spread shots that deal damage at in a cone in front of Reaper. Each one of the blasts will come from one of his 2 guns alternating each time. Each shotgun has 4 shells total, equaling 8 shots total. Once all shots are fired the next time that this ability is activated Reaper will toss the guns to the side littering the nexus. Exactly like in Overwatch if it is activated again he will pull two new shotguns out and continue the barrage. The closer the target is to Reaper the more damage they take from the shotguns.

W- “Die Die Die... Die”

Reaper has the ability to place an explosive proximity charge on any friendly unit in the game using this ability. He activates it and is able to place the charge with the mouse cursor. The charge will explode and deal AoE damage to all units in the range once an enemy hero comes within range of it.

E- “Puff of Smoke”

This is an instant cast like an ice block- but what will happen with this one is that Reaper will instantly puff into smoke and disappear from the very spot he was standing for a fraction of a second. After he will instantly reappear on the battlefield in that same place.

Heroic 1- “Blackwatch”

Once Gabriel Reyes, Reaper felt as though the Overwatch program could not get jobs done that were “dirty” and needed approval before any action could be taken. To combat this he created his own task for called Blackwatch. When this ability is activated Reaper will be able to turn all units in the area to “smoke” and they will disappear from the battlefield. This lasts for a short amount of time and the friendly units cannot be revealed. The Reaper player will want to communicate with his team to allow them to reposition during the use of this untimate.

Heroic 2- “Waste Not, Want Not” 

When this is used all heroes on the mini map are revealed to the friendly team. When this happens it also affects the enemy's minimap covering it in black smoke for a short amount of time.  Also for the remainder of the battle all friendly heroes show us as question marks on the mini map rather than their character icon.

Kristen’s Choices

Quoth the Reaper, “Nevermore.”

Name

        Reaper / Gabriel Reyes

Role

        Assassin

Trait

        True Vision

When activated, a ring of sight appears around Reaper and travels outward. As soon as Reaper moves, the distance of this ring from Reaper locks into place and grants him moveable sight for a period of time, allowing him to spot unseen enemies and fire on them.

Mount

        Black Smoke

Reyes would transform his feet into smoke and use that to speed himself along the battlefield.

Q

Your Name, My Bullet

Reaper is the master of grudges. He has every enemy’s name carved onto his bullets. When he shoots you with the one with your name on it, you suffer a percentage of your health in damage and take increased damage from Reaper.

W

Dodge This

Reaper uses rounds that explode into smaller rounds and so on and so on in a circle around him, damaging everything caught in this ability’s path. This explosion of bullets radiates outward, doing more damage the further out the ability and the longer and enemy is stuck in it.

E

Shadow Step (Featured Forger Ability)

Reaper targets an area within his own personal Line of Sight (not affected by teammates or minions) and after a .75 second delay teleports to that area. Reaper gains 10 armor at the start of the cast and lasts for 2 seconds.

R1

Bare My Soul

Reaper is death incarnate, or at least he pretends to be. Shouting “Die! Die! Die!”, our plucky underdog runs into the middle of battle and lets loose all of the pain and angst he’s ever felt in the form of bullets. This is similar to Valla’s strafe, the only difference being if you are stuck in it for a set period of time, you die.

R2

        My Last Resort

Reaper cuts himself into two pieces as a last resort. In this form, the two reapers run parallel to one another, rapidly firing their guns and creating a moveable wall of extreme damage.

Skin

        Too Cool For School

Nobody understands Reaper. But whatever. He’s too cool for school. He wears the early 90s equivalent of rad. There is lots of denim, a backward baseball cap, a halloween mask because it breaks the norms and now he rides around on a skateboard. Though he can’t smoke a cigarette in the game, he would sneak it.

Dance

        Trust Exercise

He folds his hands over his chest and falls backward to see if anyone will catch him yet - no one does. At least he looks cool when the action is finished. He meant to do that.
