I felt like designing a final end game villain for Overwatch. So I designed a hero based on the mysterious eye logo at the center of Sombra’s conspiracy web.
Occupation: Iris Overseer
Affiliation: Iris Clan
Irux descends from an advanced synthetic alien clan (The Iris) which wants to replace all organic life and control the universe.
Irux was appointed as the Overseer of Earth’s synthetic takeover. Observing that Earth was close to achieving a sentient form of artificial intelligence, Irux was tasked to take direct control of the Earth’s AI systems by installing powerful God programs. This eventually led to the first omnic crisis.
Surprised by humanity’s overwhelming power, Irux decided to use humanity’s greatest strength against them by encoding the remaining omnics with a simulated form of ‘consciousness’. Because humans waged many devastating wars over ideologies formed by consciousness throughout history, Irux believes it’s only a matter of time before omnics decide to wage an all-out war to destroy the human race once and for all.
Mark Target (LMB)
Sends all drones to destroy the targeted enemy or enemy device. When the target is destroyed, the drones will return to operating autonomously. If you target a health pack, a nearby drone will lift and carry it to Irux.
Summon Drones (RMB)
Summon mini drones (up to 4) that automatically shoot and pursue nearby enemies and other built enemy devices such as turrets and traps.
Drone Barrier (E)
Teleport all summoned drones immediately around Irux. The shield formation around Irux depends on how many drones are currently summoned.
Scouter Drone (Shift)
Remotely control an invisible spy drone. It can see enemies and built devices such as traps and teleporters through walls within range (30m). Using the scouter drone, Irux can mark and target enemies and enemy devices far away.
Press space whilst airborne to float in the air. Whilst floating Irux can move in any direction horizontally. Press space again to stop floating and drop to the ground.
Ultra Drone (Q)
Irux summons and remotely controls a large aerial assault drone armed with homing missiles and machine lasers. Hold right click to target multiple enemies before firing homing missiles.
