Something in Baptiste’s bio brings into question what we currently know about the Omnic Crisis.
It has been established in various sources that the Omnic Crisis happened 30 years ago. In his origin story, we see Baptiste as a child staring down a Bastion unit - if he’s 36 now, he would have been around 6 then. This fits with what we know.
Operation: White Dome established that as of 23 years ago, Overwatch was cleaning up “a remaining pocket of omnic resistance”. This implies that the omnic crisis was either over or very near its end by this point. Baptiste would have been 13 by this point.
Baptiste’s bio states that he joined the Caribbean Coalition, which was formed in response to the crisis. This seems to be a paramilitary group, so it’s likely that Baptiste had to be at least 18 to join them. He would have been 18 years old 18 years ago, 5 years after our last known date for the omnic crisis.
To complicate things further, in the latest Dev Update Jeff Kaplan said that Baptiste joined Talon after the crisis ended and there was no further need for his skills, implying that he was in fact in the Caribbean Coalition during the crisis.
So, which is it? Did Baptiste serve in the Caribbean Coalition during the omnic crisis and not leave it until the crisis ended, making the crisis last for a whopping 12 years at least? Or was Jeff incorrect, and Baptiste joined the Caribbean Coalition (and subsequently Talon) after the crisis had long ended? And if that is the case, what conflicts did Baptiste fight in that required his services as a combat medic?
EDIT: We have an answer! Turns out it was the second option (Baptiste joined the CC after the crisis).
