Hanzo is one of the more popular Overwatch characters. He is a defense champion and a certified assassin. The eldest son of the Shimada clan, it fell on him to take over the family’s lucrative criminal empire when his father passed. From a young age, Hanzo had always been very responsible and a prodigy of martial arts and the bow. His brother, Genji, by contrast was a lazy playboy who rejected the family business. After their father passed, the village elders instructed Hanzo to either make Genji see the error of his ways or kill him to prevent him from damaging their clan’s reputation. When his brother refused, Hanzo struck the killing blow. Shocked at his own actions and broken by the death of his brother, Hanzo abandoned the Shimada clan, returning only on the anniversary of his brother’s death. To learn more about Hanzo and Genji, check out the animated short, “Dragons.”
