Hero Concept: Mercy

Did this one ages ago but have been tweaking it a bit lately; recent news made me lose hope of her ever getting in but here’s my idea if she ever were to.

My idea was to have her as this super slippery healer that wouldn’t focus really on direct attacking, but instead by empowering and sustaining allies to do that for her (like in OW), but she could choose to be a bit more aggressive if she wants to with basic attack builds; she can also be talented into to be much more active, with many activatable abilities so you can say you weren’t just a heal bot or something.
