Death walks among you.

–Reaper's famous quote

Reaper, real name Gabriel Reyes, is a former leader of Overwatch turned mercenary working for Talon.


Some speak of a black-robed terrorist known only as the Reaper. His identity and motives are a mystery. What is known is that where he appears, death follows.

The Reaper is an extremely volatile mercenary, a ruthless and remorseless killer responsible for terrorist attacks across the world. He has fought in many armed conflicts in the last decades, showing no loyalty to any cause or organization.

Survivors have described a black shadow ghosting unscathed through the most hellish of battles. The few bodies recovered of those he kills are pale, empty husks drained of life, their cells showing signs of intense degredation. It is possible that he is the result of a failed genetic alteration, which forces his cells to simultaneously decay and regenerate at a hyper-accelerated rate.

Those attempting to track his movements have begun to see a pattern in his appearances. They believe that Reaper is hunting former Overwatch agents and systematically eliminating them.


Reaper has been described as a black cloaked man with a skull mask, and is often referred to as the "Skull-Faced Demon" by Killiac.


Reaper has shown to have no mercy for anyone, as shown when he was about to kill Winston in Recall.
