"You are Seeker, a young man who's been many things: adventurer, treasure hunter, freedom fighter, and international criminal. Recently you encountered the re-formed Overwatch: a grand title for two ex-agents, Winston and Tracer, operating as outlaws out of an abandoned Watchpoint. Despite their down-and-out-status, or perhaps because of it, you were inspired to join them. You left your old life behind to become the first recruit of the new Overwatch. Now you and Tracer are travelling the globe, defending the people of the world from harm and searching for potential agents to rebuild Overwatch. The world needs heroes. Maybe you can be one of them."
Intro to threads

Overwatch Quest is a quest by Ravenking which follows Seeker, an original character and the rest of the Overwatch Cast. You play as Seeker and make decisions that will effect the quest and the team itself.

Tropes that apply to Overwatch Quest:

  • Adaptational Sexuality: In this story Tracer is bisexual.
  • Awesome by Analysis: By listening to the Shrikes advice on leading Overwatch and how Jack was behind closed doors Seeker correctly deduces that the Shrike is Ana Amari. He also deduces that Reaper is Gabriel Reyes by his fighting style and shotguns.
  • Beam Spam: Symmetra pulled this off during the Brazil mission.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Ana in her guise of the Shrike saves Seeker and a wounded Tracer when they are trapped by Helix Security operatives
  • Boom, Headshot!: Seeker gets one on Reaper when he and Talon invade the watchpoint for a second time but due to his powers Reaper survives it.

  • Butt-Monkey: Poor Blizzardverse Anon. All he wants to do is update people on what's happening in the game, but each of his posts are met with a torrent of hate due to them being in a quest thread and thus Off-Topic at best and a Derail at worst. Even Ravenking shuts him down at one point.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Seeker's mother the head executive of Lucheng is this.
  • Domestic Abuse: Of the Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male Played for Drama variety due to Seeker's mother being abusive to Seeker's father. It's even stated that Seeker's father doesn't even fight back.
  • Enemy Mine: Seeker tries this with the Corporate security guards during the Africa mission, with varied results.
  • Evil Matriarch: Seeker's mother is the dramatic version of this. It's stated that her personality changed to this when Seeker was growing up.

  • Heroism Won't Pay the Bills: Overwatch, now that it's revived as a vigilante organization, is crowdfunded, and relies on Lucio's paycheck.
  • Honor Before Reason: Reinhardt has this mentality most of the time.
