Mercy is not only one of the most important in-game Overwatch heroes. She also plays an important role in the formation and successes of the official Overwatch crew during battle.
Her backstory is an interesting one: having lost both her parents to war, she rose through the ranks to be one of the most respected surgeons in Switzerland. Her breakthrough healing medication and techniques caught the eye of Overwatch, and while initially hesitant to contribute to war, ultimately joined forces with Overwatch to help heal and protect people.
Mercy’s backstory is chronicled in this amazing fan-made film by the folks at Lupin Productions.
“Mercy is put to the test as she is haunted by the memories of her past, but is faced with an impossible situation in the present,” the description of the 9-minute film reads.
You should definitely take the time to check it out: it’s certainly among the best fan-made Overwatch projects out there.
