Debuted at Gamecon 2015, Lúcio quickly became a support favorite with his ability to scale walls and use his music to support his team. In short, he is the coolest bard you will ever see. Sorry, Elan.
Lúcio started off as a humble Brazilian street performer seeking to use music to bring his community together in the aftermath of the Omnic Crisis. When the Vishkar company came to Rio de Janeiro, they promised to develop the land and improve the lives of those living there. Instead, they usurped the government, instilling harsh laws and forcing the citizens of the city to work in their facilities for next to nothing.
Refusing to allow his people to be exploited, Lúcio stole Vishkar’s sonic technology, utilizing it to lead a rebellion against the oppressive corporation. With Vishkar driven from the land, Lúcio became a globally renowned hero. While he does not ally himself currently with Talon or Overwatch, Lúcio does his best to utilize his fame to help people fight against oppression and evil in the world.
