canon or oc: Cannon
anchor character: Yes
species: Ape (genetically modified)
gender: Male
age: 29
date of birth: June 8, 2018
place of birth: Horizon Lunar Colony, Sea of Tranquility, The Moon.
starting location: Character Starting Location
originating fandom: Overwatch
fandom universe: Overwatch
pronouns: He/Him
occupation: Scientist, Freedom Fighter
languages: English, Gorrilla
playby: Himself
height: 7’3” (Upright)
weight: 350 lbs
hair color: Black
eye color: Hazel
distinguishing features: He’s a gorrilla
sexual orientation: Straight? I hope this doesn’t come up...
family: Dr. Harold Winston - Caretaker, deceased
relationship status: Single
powers: As a gorrilla, Winston is several times stronger and more durable than an average human. He’s able to deal significant damage unarmed and by hand. He is able to climb almost effortlessly, scaling or clinging to any surface he can get a grip on.

Ambidexterity - Winston is equally proficient with his right and left hand, and with his right and left feet for that matter.
strengths: Strong! - As stated, as a gorilla, Winston is physically superior to human beings.

Scientist/Inventor - Winston is a scientific genius, often relying on items he creates rather than his physical strength. He is an able computer programmer (having created his own onboard AI, Athena). He once cobbled together a makeshift rocket capable of returning him to Earth from the moon, and created a device to stablize his teammate, Tracer, who had become stranded outside the space-time continuum, just to name some of his accomplishments.
weaknesses: He's an ape - Winston is the only one of his kind on Earth. This leaves him with a strong need for community and surrogate family, and can lead to feelings of isolation.

Animal rage - Winston is, generally, soft-spoken and gentle. He can, though, in periods of stress, lose his temper and slip into his animal nature, losing his self control and his ability to mitigate the damage he does.
equipment: Power armor - Winston has constructed protective armor for himself which shields him from a considerable amount of harm. Nanotechnology repairs it over time, and it has self-charging booster jets on it, providing mobility for a limited time, but an unlimited number of times.

Tesla cannon - collapsible weapon, stored in his armor, that projects high voltage electricity.

Shield generators - deployable energy shields, charged by his armor, that project a protective sphere of energy that stops projectiles a energy, but will not impede movement by a person.

Winston was one of several genetically enhanced gorillas that were bred as part of an experiment on the effect of low-gravity environments on the Horizon Lunar Colony. It was quickly discovered that his enhancements had given him a remarkable intelligence, and he was put into the care of Doctor Harold Winston, his namesake. He grew up on the lunar colony, assisting the scientists there with their experiments as he rapidly learned their trade, only ever seeing the earth as a distant object in space.

This all changed when the other gorillas staged a revolt, taking over the colony for themselves and killing all of the human scientists. Winston, horrified and left without his beloved caretaker, assembled a makeshift rocket and abandoned his fellow gorillas, aiming the rocket and his future toward the Earth.

Arriving on Earth, Winston eventually found a home in Overwatch, the global peacekeeping force that had brought an end to the Omnic crisis. Among their ranks, he became a respected scientist and soldier, helping keep world peace as much as he created new innovations for it. When Overwatch collapsed under the pressure of internal politics and government pressure, he retreated to one of the abandoned bases, carrying out his experiments in seclusion and longing for the return of his team, or more accurately his family.

RP Sample
Friends - Winston is, at heart, a very gentle creature. He identifies himself as a scientist primarily, but his sense of responsibility and loyalty prevents him from sitting idle in the face of adversity in the world. He is a loyal ally, once you decide to make him one, and a capable scientist and engineer. There’s potential for him to be friends with any of the heroic characters, especially those technically inclined.

Enemies - Winston likes to believe the best in everyone, he really does. Sometimes, though, people will do things that he can’t forgive, usually when they act against his friends. When provoked, Winston is a brutal fighter, though not sadistically so. He abhors cruelty and oppression, putting him against anyone who would seek to walk all over others.

While Winston could definitely learn to care for other people, I can’t stress enough that he’s a gorilla, and thus fated to be alone. So alone.

nicknames: MIke
age: 36

contact: Hipchat/AIM is best. PM me!
triggers: Hanzo mains make me throw my computer
mature threading: Again, the character is a gorilla. That said… I can't remember ever saying no to an idea.
other characters: Arjay Lo’Ran, Justin Halloway, Amora
about: Amusingly, Winston isn’t one of my mains when I play Overwatch. However, he has one of the best stories, and he fits the game so well.
29. Scientist. Overwatch. Himself.
