Angela "Mercy" Ziegler is one of the heroes of the Overwatch game.
A guardian angel to those who come under her care, Dr. Angela Ziegler is a peerless healer, a brilliant scientist, and a staunch advocate for peace.
Ziegler rose to become the head of surgery at a prominent Swiss hospital before pioneering a breakthrough in the field of applied nanobiology that radically improved the treatment of life-threatening illnesses and injuries. It was this expertise that attracted the attention of Overwatch.
In the XP4 fics, Mercy debuted in XP4 Heroes Coalition: Neo-City Diaries.
Mercy has a blonde hair and blue eyes. She wears her Valkyrie Suit whenever she's in combat.
When not fighting, she had her hair tied in a high ponytail and wears lab coat over a blue shirt, black tight trousers, white socks and black slip shoes.
Mercy is easily one of the kindest characters in the game. She hates violence, cares deeply for her teammates, and dedicated her life to saving as many lives as possible.Though you're not going to hear it that often, she can be quite sarcastic to enemies she eliminates.
Mercy vehemently opposed Overwatch's militaristic approaches to global crises and their overarching aims, but she knew that without Overwatch's technology and resources, she would never have the ability to heal large numbers of people as efficiently or quickly.
Mercy both works in the Heroes Coalitions and Vanguard Academy as a nurse. It is unknown if she works as a hero.
XP4 Heroes Coalition: Neo-City Diaries.
In Chapter 54, Mercy greeted the newly-awaken Hiro in the infirmary in the Training Facility where she explains a lot of things to him.
Mercy is the quintessential Support character, having abilities meant to help sustain and heal her allies as they assault enemies. Her weapon, the Caduceus Blaster, is but a sidearm saved for emergencies. Her real claim to fame is her Caduceus Staff. The staff can channel energy into an ally, either healing them or boosting the damage they deal so long as she links it to them. Her ability Guardian Angel causes her to fly to a nearby ally's position to assist them. Her 2nd ability, Resurrect, after a couple seconds, revives and replenishes the ammo of one ally who recently died near her. Her last ability, Angelic Descent, allows her to gracefully float down from a high distance. She also has passive regeneration, slowly healing herself automatically when not taking damage. Her ultimate ability, Valkyrie, gives her full flight and empowers her other abilities for 20 seconds: Caduceus Staff gains doubled range with a beam that chains to allies near the target, her health regeneration is always on regardless of whether or not she takes damage, Caduceus Blaster gains doubled projectile speed and an infinite-ammo magazine, and Guardian Angel gains doubled speed and range.
