Ever since Efi's interview, there was speculation on whether she is the next hero or connected to the number 24 in any way

Of course, Overwatch wasn't going to put an 11 year old in the middle of a match, no matter her genius. They will, however, use her creation in the battlefield. Orisa, is a tank od Efi's design and features:

  • Fusion Driver - Orisa’s automatic projectile cannon delivers sustained damage, but slows her movement while she fires it.
  • Fortify - Orisa temporarily reduces damage she takes, and cannot be affected by action-impairing effects.
  • Halt! - Orisa launches a graviton charge which she can detonate, slowing nearby enemies and pulling them towards the explosion.
  • Protective Barrier - Orisa throws out a stationary barrier that can protect her and her allies from enemy fire.
  • Supercharger - Orisa deploys a device to increase damage inflicted by allies within her line of sight.
