Hanzo Story

Destined to Rule

Hanzo Story 1 Overwatch
Hanzo is one of the two dragons of the Shimada clan, along with his brother Genji. Like his brother, he was trained in combat, becoming a deadly bowman and assassin. As the eldest, it was his duty to continue the legacy of the Shimada empire and he was trained to fulfill this.


Hanzo Bow and Arrow Overwatch 2
Hanzo quickly lived up to his high expectations, being recognized as a prodigy in martial arts, bow skills and swordsmanship. He also demonstrated excellent leadership, tactical and analytical skills from early on.

Father's Death

Hanzo Story 2 Overwatch 2
After his father's death, Hanzo was tasked with bringing his brother back into clan duties. When Genji rejected, he was forced to kill him. Although Genji was ultimately saved by Overwatch, Hanzo was never aware of this. The guilt of killing his brother changed Hanzo, leading him to abandon the clan and attempt to restore the honor he had lost.

Family Reunion

Hanzo and Genji Shimada Castle Overwatch 2
One day Genji, now almost completely cybernetically composed, confronted Hanzo at the Shimada clan residence. Upon seeing Genji's face and realizing it was indeed his brother, he was shocked he was still alive and what he had become. Hanzo loses that fight and is asked by Genji to join him on the side of good.
