The Little Girl Conspiracy: An Overwatch Theory
While everyone has been in awe and wonder for the new character in the Overwatch lore, I have been observing an unsettling pattern that has been in all of our faces.
The first thing I wish to point out is the provided “Hero” animation, the first we see Soldier: 76 in action. His main purpose was to stop some members of Los Muertos from taking away weapons. That mission is side tracked by this individual.
Alejandra, a young mija that seems to be well known to the gang. It might be expected for the gang whose name is literally ‘The Dead’ to make frequent stops at her mother’s bakery…
The Mist Bakery
Chilling, I know. But we cannot leave out the other important person that is connected to Dorado, and that person is Sombra. Sombra, the shadow. A member of the Los Muertos gang…
..since she was a little girl.. (off topic,why has no one brought up the one omnic in the group? I swear, that lady with a rose probably asked our little shadow to hack herself a mechanical boyfriend. Whatever, back to the real theory)
In the “Infiltration”, we have Sombra blackmailing Katya Volskaya for her involvement with Russia’s omnic enemies. And what brings Katya to finally agree to be Sombra’s ‘friend’? Her daughter, Volskaya the Second.
Another little girl involved in the shadow’s schemes.
Sombra herself can be connected to even more little girl tropes in this conspiracy web, and that web contains our most well known spider. Widowmaker does state at the beginning of the “Alive” short that she indeed has a fear of spiders when she was a little girl. How interesting. Widowmaker was also responsible for the assassination of Mondatta. In his honor, King’s Row has provided a statue in his memory. A gold colored statue with him…
and a little girl.
Going back to Sombra, we know she wants to find out who runs the world. Many people believe that the Iris, an A.I. that omnics like Zenyatta worship, discovered her hacking into things it didn’t want her to get into. One other line, or dotted line in this sense, that the Iris leads to is Efi Oladele.
Efi does indeed have a similar eye pattern of the icon, the potential Iris A.I. She is said to be an expert in A.I. The Iris itself is connected to Numbani, home to Efi. This is what it all comes to. A little girl is indeed running their world. Please, if there is anymore little girls that I have missed in the Overwatch canon, let me know. Blizzard can’t keep us in the dark any longer.
