Power Loss (Ammo)- Tracer will eventually run out of ammunition, and need to reload. Her Blink cannot be used continuously, either.
Disabled (Time-Tossed)- Without her "Chronal Accelerator", Tracer is prone to disappearing into the timestream, becoming insubstantial as well.
Responsibility (Overwatch)- Tracer is one of Overwatch's most ardent defenders- she is an idealist who wants to help save the world.
Enemy (Widowmaker)- Widowmaker assassinated Tekhartha Mondatta, an Omnic philosopher that Lena greatly admired, while Lena was helpless to stop it.
Relationship (Emily)- They are the world's most adorable lesbian couple.
Relationship (Winston)- Winston is close to both Lena & Emily, having saved Lena's life years ago.

-Tracer was clearly meant to be the "Mascot" and most popular character of Overwatch
- she was heavily featured in the first video releases, she's on the cover of the game's box, and she was one of the first characters created (based off of the "Jumper" class from unreleased game Project Titan
). Given a very cute, anime-style design (VERY huge eyes, spiky hair, bomber-jacket), she was meant to be fun and spunky, but was also given the most ludicrously tight pants in the history of humanity- basically an exceptionally-tight, pert buttocks spraypainted yellow/orange. Her early "Victory Pose", consisting of "Hey, look at my ass!" with her butt jutting out, drew some negative reactions, and Blizzard changed it to DIFFERENT negative reactions, ending up with "Hey, look at my ass, in this slightly different, goofy-girl pose!" with one knee in the air.
-Tracer's Origin Story is that she was meant to be an Overwatch pilot, but her teleportation matrix malfunctioned, trapping her in the timestream- she kept "blinking" in and out of time, rescued only when the ape inventor Winston intervened, giving her a chest-thingie to maintain a presence in the current time. Thankfully, she doesn't need to wear it 24/7, which means that all of that nude fanart is canon.
-Tracer was letter announced as a lesbian, shocking fans who were desperate for the "PharMercy" relationship to become canon- she has a cute redheaded girlfriend named Emily. As she's arguably the "Main Character" of Overwatch
, this makes her probably the biggest name LGBT-something character in gaming. Her "London Cockney" accent is considered pretty unconvincing by actual Brits, who find her "professional-quality" elocution (voiced by Ivy from Downton Abbey
!) at odds with the casual, "working class" nature of Cockney- it comes off like an upper-class woman affecting the accent.
-Tracer specializes in speed & "single-target" damage, shooting about the map with Teleportation capabilities and blasting foes at close range with twin pistols, or unloading her "Ultimate" Pulse Bomb, then using the "Recall" to teleport back to her prior position. Her twin powers are "Blink" and "Recall"- Blink allows her to Teleport short distances, thus making her one of the game's fastest characters; Recall will establish her at a prior position- both her placement on the map, and her prior health and status- this allows for short-term Healing & Debuff-clearing.
-Tracer is thus very mobile, and one of the hardest characters to hit, but she is considered the most fragile character in the game- anyone who can deal out good damage can eliminate her in moments. The trick with her is to constantly use her Movement-Based Powers to get her out of harm's way, dealing specific close damage to the right targets- her Pulse Bomb is quite powerful, and can wipe out entire groups.
Comic Book-izing Tracer: She'd be a weird one, because she'd probably be way more of a "Comic Book Speedster" than a Teleporter, but if they went the 'porting way, she'd be more of a martial artist anyways. She'd probably fight a lot like Nightcrawler or somebody. The "Time Travel" thing might be a unique wrinkle, though I've not seen that in comics before.
