Blizzard is expanding its extended Overwatch universe into young adult fiction with the release of ‘The Hero of Numbani,’ a novel centred on Efi Oladele.
Efi represents a significant brick in the foundations of Overwatch lore. The 11 year old robotics expert created Orisa, the bug-but-also-centaur-like defense droid, following Doomfist’s attack on Numbani’s OR15 security. While Efi isn’t a playable character, the novel seeks to flesh out her backstory beyond the lore drops provided around Orisa’s launch.
