high on light

OK but seriously is Blizzard ever going to explain exactly what spirit dragons are, and why this one Japanese mafia family is able to control them?

Have they been studied? Has anyone ever sat down with a Shimada and asked a few simple questions? Did any scientist ever ask “How can a single human being unleash a being of what seems to be made of pure energy and not get fucking annihilated?

Are they supernatural? Is the supernatural a thing in the overwatch world? Are there literal ghosts? Is the Junkenstein thing canon, are there witches? Does Mothman lurk in futuristic cities? Are the dragons conduits for spirits? Separate creatures that exist in a symbiotic relationship with a single bloodline? Can anyone else besides the Shimadas use them?

Are they even magic? Is it possible they’re just expensive and high tech hard light creating implants just made to manifest as dragons for the Aesthetic™️️?

Blizzard, please elaborate.


Well, it’s about time, right? The only reason this took as along as it did was because I wanted make sure the ones with similar designs still remained distinct enough, while still being faithful to their alt modes. I’m going to make some major upgrades as I go on, but for now, this is fine. Pronouns to change on a whim.


The Astroforce are a group of earth-made trains under the command of Astrotrain, to whom they are fiercely loyalty to and defensive of. They primarily deliver energon along designated routes between bases on both Cybertron and Earth. When not doing that, they mostly stick around each other and Astrotrain, with the exception of Switchman, who spends most of his free time in the medbay.

Injector (Center) is the group’s ‘leader’, being the first to come online and the only one with a distinct design. She shows a strong will and determination and an eagerness to please, but is also highly anxious and sensitive to critique, panicking at even the slightest hint of displeasure from others. She tries her best to act tough and set an example for her allies despite herself and her own insecurities.

Switchman (right of Injector) is the group slacker. Switch is well known for hiding whenever responsibility shows. He can usually be found assisting int he med bay, doing little jobs and occasionally napping. Actually, it’s mostly napping. He’s shown some aptitude for medical care, but lacks the motivation to properly study it.

Rail Grinder (far right) loves doing the dirty work no one else will. He’s the most relaxed and friendly of the crew. He’s known for his docile nature and surprisingly dark sense of humor. He’ll go along with just about anything if you ask nice enough. He claims to be a professional at everything, but, more often than not, tends to accident his way to success if others aren’t helping.

High Rail (left of Injector) is overly dramatic and tends to make a show of everything. She’s the eager type with a love of adventure and a take-charge attitude, often heading the group when Injector can’t. She only wants the best for and from everyone, and tries her hardest to push the others past their limit and offer the best support she can.

Trackside (far left) is known for her kind smile and sweet nature. This is a all lie. She may seem harmless, but Trackside is a liar, a thief and an avid lover of pranks and uses her sweet face to catch her victims off guard. She’s far from malicious though, and will immediately back down if it’s clear a situation is getting out of hand. It’s all just for the fun, she says.
