As was previously theorized, Michael Chu confirmed today that the man Fareeha is having dinner in the Reflections comic with is her biological father in Canada.

“It featured one panel with Pharah (another of our heroes) and her father having dinner at a restaurant in Canada. I made sure that one of the television screens was showing a hockey game… I’m thinking it was probably the world juniors?” recalled Chu. “So for anyone who’s wondering how Canada is doing in the future: Don’t worry, they’re still playing hockey.”

Yeah, I love [goaltending]. Sometimes, hate it. It depends. Like a few weeks ago, they broke my chest protector during the practice. Like guys continue to start hitting me in same spot. You like "Why is like… Why so painful, you know?” Man. I don’t wanna be goalie no more. Can I sit at a office and accept calls like “Yeah? 1-800… Let me transfer to different department”.

How did Ilya Bryzgalov end up in Overwatch?
You’re playing “Overwatch,” as one of over 30 million users that are obsessed with the delirious multiplayer shooter from Blizzard Entertainment.

“When it comes to Easter eggs, Chu said this one was obscure in content but rather obvious in placement. “I tend to like hiding some pretty obscure references in the game, and I get equal parts enjoyment when people don’t discover them as when they do,” he said.That included a hockey reference in a comic he wrote last December called “Reflections,” that looked at the lives of the Overwatch players away from the battlefield. (Overwatch takes place on a future Earth, years after a violent robot uprising.) 

“It featured one panel with Pharah (another of our heroes) and her father having dinner at a restaurant in Canada. I made sure that one of the television screens was showing a hockey game… I’m thinking it was probably the world juniors?” recalled Chu. “So for anyone who’s wondering how Canada is doing in the future: Don’t worry, they’re still playing hockey.””

It’s officially confirmed that Fareeha was having dinner with her father, and that he’s Canadian.
