"So, you want to hear my story. It all started a few years ago. Overwatch was looking for a hotshot pilot to test their next-generation teleporting fighter: The Slipstream. Enter: Lena Oxton (call sign: “Tracer”). [giggles] That’s me! It was the opportunity I had trained for my whole life. But on my first flight, the teleportation matrix malfunctioned; and I disappeared."
"Cheers, love! The cavalry's here!"- We all know that one of the famous former Overwatch’s agents is known as Tracer who is a time-jumping adventurer. Tracer is fragile but hard to hit, she harasses the enemies while keeping one step ahead of her attackers. Tracer can control her own personal time bubbles where she is able to rewind time to her position and state a few second earlier which gives her a second chance. The developer of the Overwatch considers Tracer as most of the unique play styles in Overwatch. So what we do really know about the facts of Tracer? Let’s take a look the lists below;
She started as a pilot.
Tracer was the youngest person ever inducted into Overwatch's experimental flight program. Known for her fearless piloting skills, she was handpicked to test the prototype of a teleporting fighter, the Slipstream. But during her first flight, the aircraft's teleportation matrix malfunctioned, and it disappeared and was considered dead. She reappeared months later, but her ordeal had abundantly changed her; her molecules had been desynchronized from the flow of time and led her to suffer “chronal disassociation”.
Tracer was considered a living ghost.
Due to the accident, Tracer was suffering from "chronal disassociation," she was a living ghost, disappearing for hours and days at a time. She was unable to maintain a physical form, to touch and interact with anything even when she was present at the correct time. She seemed hard to stay tangible. Sometimes she had strange dreams about the past, including being a kitchen maid at a large house in the country. Tracer's case seemed hopeless until Winston, a scientist invented the chronal accelerator, a device that capable of keeping Tracer anchored in the present which it gave Tracer the ability to control her own time, allowing her to speed it up and slow it down at will. With her newfound skills, she became one of Overwatch's most effective agents.
Overwatch wasn’t Tracer first appearance.
Ever get that feeling of Deja Vu when you see Tracer? Yes, Overwatch wasn’t Tracer first appearance. Her first appearance was actually in Heroes of the Storm where she had the same basic abilities as in Overwatch. In additional, Tracer was not the only Overwatch character to make it into Heroes of the Storm, the badass Zarya was the second character to be added to it too.
Tracer has the ability to control her own personal time bubbles.
