Fareeha Amari (also known as Pharah) is one of the many playable characters from Overwatch.


Fareeha Amari is the daughter of Ana Amari, one of Overwatch's founders and expert snipers. Though their relationship was strained, Fareeha still took after her and wanted to join Overwatch. She was taught by Ana how to fight and how to protect her loved ones. She enlisted in the Egyptian military and rose through the ranks, but Overwatch was disbanded before she could join. Her mother was also declared dead in a hostage rescue mission before.

Helix Security International gave Fareeha a new job guarding the Giza Plateau, where the God Program Anubis was quarantined. Fareeha, now using the call sign "Pharah", received training in the Raptora Mark VI combat suit, and eventually became lieutenant of her squadron.

At a certain point, Anubis managed to break free, and Pharah's squadron was sent in to disable it. Though they were successful, much of the squadron died in the fight, including its captain, Khalil. Pharah was promoted to captain as a result.

Recently, Pharah received a letter from her thought-to-be-dead mother, explaining to her about Ana's story and why her mother had gone missing for a decade. They seemed to be reconciled, based on the conversation between them ingame.
