So, my favorite character is Lucio (I'm talking about Overwatch btw). I have also developed a sad backstory for him and it is relevant to WHY he's a hero/freedomfighter. *ahem*:
Lucio was orphaned when he was a baby and left in a box on the streets for dead. A woman named Zahari finds the box and sees Lucio, instantly making her fall in love with the little boy. She raises him in her home for years. Lucio's early years were the roughest, especially when school started. Lucio couldn't really find any friends except for a boy named Julio who was also a fan of music. Both of them were made fun of because they thought that music could help bring the world together.
A couple years later, Lucio finds out that Julio was killed by a gang in the city. Zahari tries to help him as best as she can while he grieves. Lucio starts to doubt his abilities to help the world and Zahari tells him how he can do anything he wants if he put his mind to it. Lucio starts saving up and playing some tiny street performances to get more money. His mom always helped him and even set aside some money for him to use to get some equipment. When the Omnic Crisis hit Rio de Janeiro, it was a little tougher to save up money. Gangs would try and rob houses and that led to the worst thing for Lucio: His mother's death. Zahari was at home when a gang broke into the home and shot her, killing her. Lucio wasn't home at the time and by the time he was home, it was already too late. He vowed from that day on that he would do everything in his power to get justice for his community and one day became one of the most popular freedom fighters and worldwide known DJ's.
I know... it's not that good :/ Then again, this is just a rough draft.
What do you all think?
