Do you think Zenyatta ever thinks about the possibility of being taken over by the God AI and wreaking havoc on people he cares about? Would Genji be willing to hurt him if that happened?
I’ve thought about this possibility before and… it’s a killer. But, it is quite possible if even the highly trained omnic on Pharah’s team could be taken over by it.
But, I’m sure the two of them have discussed what the other should do if it came down to where sacrificing one of their lives was an only option. I remind you, these two have a great deal of respect and understanding for one another.
Though, if it came down to it being Zenyatta who had to go I think Genji would be very hesitant to do it. Because, Zenyatta is the one who came into his life and helped him heal, grow, and find peace. Without Zenyatta, Genji may fear that after he is gone he might fall back into those dark feelings again.
But, Zenyatta would never want harm to come to Genji, especially if it is him who would hurt him. Genji wouldn’t want Zenyatta to suffer the God AI either, he’d know that it would be better for Zenyatta to be at peace in the Iris than harming the ones he loves and cares about.
Genji would be hurt, damaged even if he was the one who had to end Zenyatta’s life. But he’d have to remind himself that it wasn’t Zenyatta anymore. Genji would probably return to the Monestary and meditate a lot to heal again. Remembering all of Zenyatta’s teachings, and always keeping him in thought. Even with Zenyatta gone, Genji would be the one to keep his spirit and teachings alive and well.
