Genji <Cybernetic Ninja>

Overwatch
Ranged Assassin
Genji

An opportunistic, mobile Assassin who can tear apart a weak backline.

Once the carefree youngest scion of the Shimada clan, Genji was cut down by his own brother for refusing to take part in their illegal ventures. Grafted into a cyborg body by Overwatch, Genji walks his own path as one who fights for what's right.
