Lúcio is a brilliant musician obviously but he’s also incredible with tech? I just wanna put that out there for a sec
Companies now have all kinds of shit they pull so that ONLY the people who’ve bought the license can use their tech. (And sometimes, so that those people have to repurchase the license after an expiration period, because why the fuck not squeeze all the money out of people you possibly can?)
That’s got to be even worse in the corporate dystopia hellscape that is the Overwatch universe post-Omnic Crisis. And the Vishkar Corp. is EXACTLY the type of company that would load up all their specially patented tech with everything they can to stop anyone else from using it or figuring out how it works.
stealing & repurposing Vishkar tech isn’t even just a matter of, lifting a physical object (which is itself a pretty significant accomplishment) – he would’ve had to hack and/or rebuild extensively any tech he got to make it usable. To override security blocks, to pull out any kind of self-destruct mechanism or internal functioning obstacle, to repair the damn things to keep them functional when planned obsolescence starts kicking in (and you can bet they were never intended to be repaired – so he would have had to figure out what all the parts do, and how to replace them when they’re hyper-specialized proprietary nonsense, himself).
Like, I know the term “hacker“ has gone kind of memetic, but REALLY
is a hacker in the purest of senses, a straight-up technical genius, and it would be super cool to see that acknowledged more

Mostly cause i was disappointed to see no bird themed class things, outside of a few outfits, so here we are! The last couple sketches are rough because i don’t have the energy to spruce them up.
