Could Pharah's dad be Hero 27?

General Discussion
So I was watching an old video of Micheal Chu talking about all the heros and their back stories.

https://youtu.be/lPXKBFXS3wk?t=922

Micheal Chu talks about Pharaoh coming from a "Lineage of Heroes"
Which generally means more than one hero is part of her family.

Jeff during a Game Convention mentioned - We already know who the new hero is - meaning it has to be a character that we have seen previously.

Considering his ancesotory is Native American Canadian it also fits the bill of a country and background not yet represented in the OW universe.

What do you think?
Its a possibilty, but they might want to branch out more rather than have 3 characters be from the same family. If he was well designed and played great though I'd be down.
Not likley.

He was only ever mentioned once by Michael Chu and seen once in the Christmas comic. Since then, nothing else was mentioned on him and we had other heroes who have far more info on as to them being the likely candidate (Junker Queen especially)

I am not going to rule him out for future heroes though! I just don't think he's going to be hero 27 (If they even decide to make him one at all) until waaaaay later on.

The strongest possibilities right now imo stands as far as likelihood are

Junker Queen first

Hammond second

Others
He was a park ranger, so I'm not really sure what he could do...
He is mentioned as a 'public servant' and I think we can assume he's something of a former bureaucrat or the like, rather than a combat oriented person but who knows?

Clark Kent was a news reporter. ( Superman )
Barry Allen a Forensic Scientist ( Flash )
Peter Parker a Photo Journalist ( Spiderman )

Or if you want OW Universe
Lucio was a DJ
Winston was a Lab Monkey.
Zenyatta was a monk

The job is irrelevant.

Are you saying other Heroes like
Orisa
Sombra
Moria

Had massive storyline plots before release?
If he's Canadian, I demand at least 3 variations of 'Sorry' and 'Eh?'
Personally I think it would make for an interesting story to tell.
What caused the rift between Ana Pharah and Him?

Why is she in Egypt while he stays alone in Canada?
Is he hiding?
If he is why?

Does this mean he has the skill set to track hunt and keep him self safe?
Does that make the next hero a sort of "Tracker" ? that can hunt his prey?

After all Native American's are known for their ability to track and hunt.
While being a park ranger he can easily stay hidden in the dense forests if some one tries to hunt him down.
All we know about her dad is that he was a social worker, which doesn't sound very heroic.
no

Hero 27 is actually Jeff himself

he is.... meta changing and more powerful than we could ever imagine...

How much cool stuff can you come up with for a park ranger?

Well it matters on how you write the story.
What if he choose to be a Park Ranger in order to hide from the world?

If you ever played the game Firewatch
http://store.steampowered.com/app/383870/Firewatch/

He talks about becoming a park ranger to escape from society.
That means he is available to have any backstory prior to that. He could have been a secret agent whose cover was blown. Was secretly working to uncover the plot of Talon to infiltrate Overwatch.

Or a Talon Assassin that retired and met Ana, but she could not forgive him for his past.

He could be a park ranger who extremely fit and trained in hunting and tracking.
He has the ability to Throw Axes - when the Axe hits a target it causes a "Blood Trail" and is able to "track" the individual and do increased damage per hit.

There are a lot of interesting things you could do with the story.
