The Overwatch tease-machine has whirred into life again, and at the centre of attention is a character – possibly the game’s 30th hero – called Jean-Baptiste Augustin.
He’s a deserting Talon (the baddies) medic, and he’s on the run. A Talon squad led by someone called D. Cuerva was sent to deal with Baptiste, but he dealt with three of them and issued the fourth, the leader D. Cuerva, a bold challenge: “Come find me, Cuerva.”
To which Cuerva, in his lore-ified report of the incident, wrote: “I know better than to underestimate Baptiste. I helped train him myself, and he was one of our best. I’ve never known a medic to be such a good shot, and his adaptability to new situations is a rare talent. All of us have seen our fair share of conflict, but Baptiste was built to survive. I swear he has the Devil’s own luck.”
