Overview: Overwatch was originally founded with aims of stopping the Omnics and putting an end to the Omnic Crisis. After the Crisis, the organization evolved into a global peacekeeping force and an engine for innovation, making advances in scientific fields ranging from space exploration to medical research.

However, bad public relations and an inner war between members brought the operation to a halt nearly 30 years ago. The final nail in the coffin was an explosion inside the main headquarters where two of Overwatche's greatest members were reported dead. The operation was shut down and all public ackwnoledgement of it's existence was silenced.


More recently it has been brought back as a taskforce to defend the remains of Atarius from the sudden outbreak of monsters known only as Guardians. The Council of Atarius, lead by it's President Peach, send the members of Overwatch to locations all around Atarius to try and shore up any damages and protect it's citizens from harm.
Leader: Jhin

Overview: Blackwatch was the covert operations arm of Overwatch. It operated under the radar and beyond the reach of any red tape. Once it was discovered, decension grew within the ranks of the Overwatch program, and caused a fault that was never repaired

Eventually public relations went south, the operation was seen as unnecessary, and Overwatch was shut down, taking Blackwatch along with it. Before the end of both programs, a battle errupted at the main headquarters and the leader of both groups were caught in a blast. Both men were reported dead at the scene.


Now, almost 30 years later, Blackwatch has returned. Operating under the guidence of the Talon Corporation, Blackwatch acts as a balance to it's once sister operation Overwatch. Working from the shadows, its members focus less on the well being of citizens and more on the important matters of Atarius, such as power and money.

UPDATE: After the events of Southtown and the death of Reaper at the hands of his rival, Overwatch's ex-commander Soldier 76, Jhin has seized control and twisted the old Blackwatch into something more representative of his grandiose dreams: Death incarnate.

Overview: The newest coalition to form on Atarius. The Shield stands for anyone who wishes to fight for the planet itself and to see both Orbis and Omnis removed from their position of power and for Atarius
