jesse mccree

I think I'll just call it a day, Pour me somethin' tall an' strong, It's only half-past twelve but I don't care

the basics

full name jesse mccree
age thirty seven
occupation representative guardian / stablehand
species human
pronouns he/him
usergroup zephyr
fandom overwatch


the powers

peacekeeper jesse's six shot revolver. extremely deadly at close to medium range, less effective at long range. jesse is able to use an ability he calls 'fan the hammer' which allows him to release whatever remaining bullets are in the gun in quick succession. the fan the hammer technique is a lot less accurate compared to the single shot. years of training have made jesse an excellent marksmanship.

combat roll a tuck and roll in the midst of combat, jesse often does this to escape while under fire. he's also able to simultaneously reload the peacekeeper as he's rolling.

flashbangs a small flash grenade that stuns the target. mccree uses it to get a leg up on his opponents. often he is able to fire or fan the hammer at the stunned target. this can also be used in combination with combat rolls to escape heavy fire if needed.

deadeye mccree's ultimate ability. all opponents in his field of vision are highlighted with a red dot that grows in size as it gets focused in on the opponent and the amount of damage the shot will inflict increases. once the mark has stopped growing, that means that it'll be an instant kill shot. some opponents with higher health will not be killed, only damaged. while in his deadeye targeting mode, mccree is slower and a lot more vulnerable since he can't use any of his other abilities. this is the only ability that jesse has that'll target more than six opponents at once. after using the deadeye ability, it has to recharge before it can be used again.

outside of these abilities, jesse is just a normal man. he's very street smart and uses his resourcefulness to get himself out of tricky situations. he's really into the cowboy lifestyle that he's read about, even going so far as dressing as one in his day to day life. he is also a southern gentleman and speaks with a southern drawl.


the canon

there's not really a super clear line of some of the ow events, but def after recall + the comics featuring mccree
i'm the quick

there's not a lot jesse mccree remembers from before his time with the deadlock gang. he remembers a pain in his body from never having enough food and drinking whatever water he could find, even if it wasn't clean. his life before the deadlock gang was a lot of hardships and nights curled up on the streets trying to stay warm and dry. he knows he was lucky, stealing and never really being caught. at least until that day. the day when he was finally caught and he had happened to be stealing from some rather untrustworthy characters. turns out they were gang members and when they caught him stealing, they brought him back to be punished. yet the head of deadlock had a better idea for him. they could raise this kid in the gang life, teach him everything while he was growing up and maybe he'd be the best gunslinger around.

and that's exactly what happened.

he was taught how to assemble and break down guns - any type and any size, he could figure out how to put them together with ease. he was even taught how to shoot and rarely miss, his practice going throughout the entire day until he hit the bullseye and then later the bullseye on a moving target. whenever he did miss he wasn't given a meal until he made another 10 in a row. those first few months were torture, it was like he was back on the streets except this time he had a bed to sleep in. he thought life in a gang would be hard, but when said gang ruled the area, nothing was ever too hard.

stealing had already been a part of jesse's way of life, upgrading that to burglary wasn't that dramatic of a change. neither was kidnapping or whatever else the bosses wanted him to do. they named it, he did it. he'd already racked up quite the kill list by the time he was considered a legal adult and a part of him was ashamed of what he was doing, but the louder part of him knew it was his only way to survive out here.

of course, all "good" things have to come to an end. and it came to an end in a stand off between him and a few of the gang members and the police. the police finally turned the situation around and they were all caught, jesse hauled off to jail and put on trail for all the crimes he'd committed. at least they could only charge him for a few of his grievances, they only knew a third of the things he'd done. if they knew more, his sentence would've been much higher than it was now. even still, he was to be locked up for the unforeseeable future and it felt like he would never get out of there. only eighteen and in jail for nearly the rest of his life.

it seems luck is on his side in the form of gabriel reyes. the man approaches him in jail and offers him a deal. either rot away in here or join him. it didn't take long for the young man to give reyes his answer. of course he'd join, anything to get out of here and the gang. he hadn't enjoyed the things he'd done, had done them to survive and any chance to survive in a better way than before, he was going to take it.

however joining reyes meant joining the 'good' side and well, he didn't really like to take sides. he preferred to be a neutral if he could, but so far he's been on both ends of the deal. as it were, he wasn't really being assigned to overwatch, but instead their covert team - blackwatch. it'd been rough at first, he didn't make friends easily back then, was considered the outsider, the kid with an attitude and a sharp tongue. at least until he'd met ana amari and she'd taken him under her wing and treated him like the family he never remembered having. it didn't help that fareeha became like a little sister to him, constantly bringing her along with him and letting her play with his guns (safety on and unloaded of course). the amari's became his favorite thing about overwatch. sure, reyes was like a father in some way, always ready with criticism and a way to improve and jesse never really felt like he was worthy in his eyes. whenever he wanted to be comforted and have the company of another, it was always an amari that he turned to.

mission after mission and he slowly felt like he was gaining the trust of those around him. he could still feel the cold looks of some of him associates, but he was quick to prove himself a good shot and a worthy member of the team. he'd never really been a team player before, so it was always nice to try something new.

the most memorable blackwatch mission he'd been on had actually been quite different than the other ones. it wasn't a mission of data collection or assassination or anything like that, it was simply a mission to create a peace between the people of hanamura and overwatch. the two sons were of the utmost importance - they were the new line of shimadas that would be taking over hanamura and leading their world into a new peace. at east that's what jesse had been told and that's what he found.

he'd first met genji upon arrival in hanamura, reyes at his side - he'd been told he was brought along because he was a similar age to the sons and could possibly form a connection between the three of them and become friends. genji had greeted them with the widest smile and jesse had simply returned it with one of his own his smiles had been rather uncommon at the overwatch facility when he'd first arrived, but now it was a normal staple in his life. everyone would know it wasn't him or he wasn't feeling himself if he wasn't smiling. genji was a great companion, showed the older male around the hanamura residence and he enjoyed the scenic views. the temple and the cherry blossoms, it was a beautiful country to be in.

it was on this tour of hanamura that jesse was finally introduced to hanzo shimada, the older of the two. if he thought that genji had been a ray of sunshine, hanzo was a whole other creature. hanzo was like a tempest waiting to start it's destruction, he was constantly aloof and moody though mccree knew that a part of that had to be because of the duties enforced upon the eldest shimada brother. however as blackwatch's time in hanamura drew on, jesse thought that he was finally cracking through the older male's tough exterior. there were rare moments when they'd be enjoying tea and talking about things and he'd look over and see a glimmer of a smile on hanzo's face or he'd make a joke and see hanzo's lips quirk up in the hint of a laugh. it was probably his favorite thing about being in hanamura. not the political ties or messing around with his new friend genji, but the fact that he, a scoundrel who had a chance to do something good with his life, was making someone else's life just a little bit better. he made it a goal of his to be friends with hanzo as well.

somewhere along the way though, things went sideways. it wasn't just friendship he wanted to seek anymore, but something more. it started with stolen glances and thoughts of how nice hanzo looked beneath the setting sun and framed by the cherry trees. and it quickly became stolen kisses and hushed voices and quiet 'i love you's that only two young people who thought that nothing could stop them could achieve. he thought that he'd be able to continue this relationship with hanzo for a while, blackwatch had already been in hanamura several months and it seemed like they'd be there a while more too. however as things were getting more and more intense, reyes approached the younger member of blackwatch and ordered him on to a new mission.

with less than a week to prepare for the new mission, jesse was busy with tactical practices and reading up on what he needed to know to be successful while he was gone. he'd later find out that his secret relationship with the eldest shimada hadn't actually been that secret and that was why he was being sent away for fear that they might compromise the current mission. with barely more than a quick 'goodbye' and a promise to keep in touch, the young cowboy was sent off nearly all the way across the world to help out with one of the more recent omnic attacks that were becoming more and more common as the weeks went by.

one omnic attack quickly ran into another and before mccree knew it, the whole world was in a crisis. omnics were rising all across the world and the only people equipped to handle it were overwatch. so despite his promise to keep in touch with the shimada family, he was way too busy to even think about it even though he wanted to. the omnic crisis was huge, overwatch was spread out and there just weren't enough members to go around and help everyone out. cities and towns got destroyed, even with overwatch members being there to fight the omnics. most of the time it felt like fighting a losing battle and jesse was disheartened every time he stepped out to fight. what good was a gun to a robot?

it didn't help that public opinion was turning on overwatch. the public was quickly deciding that overwatch wasn't the saviors that they needed anymore, it wasn't overwatch who was helping them, they were making it worse! with public disapproval at an all time high, mccree could feel his spirits growing weaker and weaker about their fights. he was becoming sloppy, missing shots that he knew he could easily make if he was in the mood. it wasn't good for one of the sharpest shooters to be off their game. it turns out that his disinterest in helping people that didn't want their help would nearly cost him his life.

it was one particularly nasty fight with some omnics, jesse had gotten separated from the team and was left surrounded by omnics with very little ways out, many of them involving running headfirst into the es6 units, hoping to catch them before they transfigured into sentry mode. as always it would seem that luck wasn't on the cowboy's side as some of the bastion units were able to finish transfiguring and immediately began to fire at the unprotected man. thankfully he was able to find enough coverage to protect himself from the es6 units, but not before they'd riddled his arm and side with bullets, blood pouring from the wounds and he couldn't feel his fingers. there was far too much blood for him to figure out what was wrong with it, the loss making his head dizzy and spin and he thinks he briefly sees an angel. he sees the golden wings and the halo, the soft, comforting voice saying that he's safe, but it's not long before he loses consciousness altogether.

it feels like mere moments when he awakens, but he feels the stubble on his face and he knows it's been days. he hears that comforting voice once more and he feels like he's in a dream. he's not. it's only mercy, the doctor of overwatch and a genius at solving difficult issues. it's not long before he feels the weightlessness where he knows it shouldn't be so light. angela's soft and reassuring words help him to not freak out as he feels around for an arm that doesn't exist anymore. yes, he still struggles, still grieves over the loss of a limb, but he knows what she has done for others - for herself. it's not long before she's giving him the offer of a new arm, a new weapon. he's not surprised, of course overwatch would still want him to be a viable asset and missing an arm wasn't beneficial to them. at least she coated it in a way that it seemed like it was in his best interest.

it takes awhile to get used to the heavier weight, the press of cool metal against warm skin. the way he has to adjust his walk to counter the additional weight or when he's not wearing the prosthetic. he's not sure if he'll ever get used to it, but with the help of the technology that overwatch has access to and dr. angela's watchful eye, he's up and at 'em in no time. jesse can now shoot with a nearly precise aim, his prosthetic providing a stabilizing mechanism to help him hit his marks easier. it's weird to adjust his self-taught aim to be something different, but it makes a world of difference.

another thing overwatch gave him was his dead eye ability. a way for him to hone in on the targets in his field of vision and instantly headshot them - something that would come in handy during later fights with omnics. though he doesn't have long before the world is changing it's tune about overwatch. they aren't the saviors they'd been described to be for so long, now they were the problem. people with special abilities trying to control the world the way they wanted it to be controlled. the governments had no choice but to shut down operations, sending the members of overwatch fleeing - either in to safety, hiding, or something else all together. it was the last jesse saw of his 'family'.

since then he'd returned to america, began living as a vigilante, not quite able to give up the good work that he'd been trying to accomplish with overwatch. of course, now justice was up to him to decide. however, it wasn't always easy trying to do the right thing now, his past still haunted him, reward signs with his face plastered upon them still hung up in the more populated towns and he didn't dare return back to where the deadlock gang was. he likely wouldn't make it back out alive if that happened and he wasn't that dumb. he'd almost gotten caught one, on a train after helping a woman out, he heard his name shouted and before he knew it, he was running across the top of the cars.

it was nerve wracking, the idea that he was still a wanted man for crimes he'd served time for and also worked to get rid of. that's why he ran though, he didn't want to spend more time working off the crimes that he'd committed when he'd already done all he could to make it right and he was still working to make it right. everything he did was for a better reason, he rarely even took a payout unless he absolutely needed it. but the train hopping event had given him a big enough scare to lay low for a while. a couple of months actually, he kept his head down and waited. waited for what, he wasn't really sure, but he knew he needed to wait. so that's what he did and he worked small jobs here and there to make a small living. it was a gritty job and yet he did it because he needed to do it and something told him that some thing better was coming along.

it was a day he was taking to himself, being a little more reckless with his money, enjoying a good meal when he heard the broadcast. well, more like he heard a repeat of the broadcast since what drew his attention in the first place was the familiar voice. winston. he was calling for overwatch members to rejoin, to form a new overwatch since the world needed them more now than ever. but did they really though? that was evident as a man stood up from his table and turned the television off with a huff and mumbling about what good overwatch did for the world. it wasn't true, there was a lot that they had done that the public didn't know about, that jesse wished they could tell everyone about, but he couldn't.

focusing on his bowl of noodles, he took care to keep attention away from him as he finished his meal and walked out. he didn't want to argue with the man over the good that overwatch had done, he'd go somewhere else, finish listening to the message and see what he could do to help the world once more - anything to help erase the pain of his past.

you're the dead

summary

this here is the rootin'-tootin' and hollerin' jesse mccree, former member of the deadlock gang and overwatch. despite his often jovial nature, mccree wasn't always a good person. during his time with the deadlock gang, he was involved in many illegal activities and was even jailed for some time. it was while he was in jail that he was approached with a 'get out of jail free' card in the form of joining overwatch in their undercover unit - blackwatch. he really had no choice in the matter, it was either join or rot in jail and well, clearly one is the lesser of the two evils. eventually mccree saw overwatch as a way to atone for his past transgressions, but he still is haunted by his past. after the disbanding of overwatch, mccree returned to america and began a life as a vigilante (though he was often considered on the wrong side of the law again). he received the notification about the overwatch recall and rejoined the group, meeting up with new and old friends.

in elysion, jesse is living in zephyr as a representative guardian and a stablehand. the guardian position is more like his old vigilante work and his work with overwatch, something to do that helps him forgive himself for his past actions. the stablehand job is because mccree loves animals and he is a True cowboy.


platonic

he is a really nice person and very friendly. he enjoys making friends with people and will often strike up a conversation with anyone that's near him. however at the same time, jesse enjoys his alone time and often prefers to do things on his own. mccree is also really into drinking and you'll often find him at a bar whenever he has free time and nothing to do. it's his easiest way to meet people and that's what he does! he also always has a smile on his face and a good-natured attitude, usually has a joke or two as well. it's rare to see him in a serious mood tbh.


antagonistic

jesse got into a lot of trouble growing up, doing whatever he needed to do to survive. and that included joining a gang and doing illegal shit. he's been on the straight and narrow since then, would have his ass handed to him if he wasn't. (actually he'd be tossed back in jail, but that's a different discussion). in elysion his past activities won't really be known to anyone unless they knew him from before, so to most people he's just a nice and friendly face. however, monster hunter is a loose definition for him and he takes requests from people about 'monsters' that they are afraid of. sometimes it's just humanoid creatures and he'll capture them and 'kill' them, so sorry if he's taken your friend before. he doesn't actually kill them or anything, doesn't even really capture them. he helps them move to a different area if they want to and if they don't, he actually tries to protect them instead. idk guys, he tries really hard to be a good guy now, he hates who he used to be and he doesn't want to be that again.


romantic

i've always pictured jesse as bi/pansexual, where he doesn't care for gender as long as he likes them and the way they look. he's always been a really big flirt and still is a really big flirt. a pick up line and a wink for anyone cute he meets, trying to charm them with his southern drawl. but that's all he is tbh. he hasn't gone too much further than flirting with anyone since he was in his 20s because he's hung up on the boy he fell in love with while he was on a mission with blackwatch. however, he hasn't seen this boy since then and that's almost 20 years now and, well, it can be a bit lonely. it's hard to love someone that you haven't talked to in so long, but he tries. despite the amount of times he's tried to hook up with other people or date other people, he can never follow through with it no matter what he does. so he's definitely taken in the long run, but at the moment he's open to flirting and possibly some one-sided type things if someone wants to do that. possibly even a one-time tryst right before he finds the love of his life to add some angst. as always au things are amazing too!

jigen + jesse JESSE MCCREEFirst things first, these two can be gun nerds together. Jigen would be most happy to find someone in Elysion that has the same appreciation for shooting he has, and has abilities that even surpass his own (because like, the Deadeye stuff will be baffling to him). Also drinking together. Even though Jigen is a way more reserved dude than Jesse, I think they could get along due to shared interests. Plus jailtime. But much like Jesse, Jigs isn't eager to talk about his criminal deeds before coming to Elysion... click here to reply to my shipper

mccree + genji
I know we plotted a bit, this is just a post to kind of get the ball rolling on discord. And also, I guess this can be here in case anyone else wants to expand off of some plotting ideas.

So Genji considers Jesse to be a close friend of his; because they worked closely together in Blackwatch, having to watch each other's backs, and also because he first met him in Hanamura. He thought the American cowboy was a funny choice for Hanzo, but Jesse is a good man, so he never had any problems with it. Genji, in fact, probably encouraged it and thought their secret relationship was endearing. And he probably teased Hanzo endlessly, and also used it as a way to tell Hanzo not to bother him about his own sexcapades in the clubs around Hanamura and Tokyo if he's seeing his cowboy in secret LOL.

Anyway, I would kind of prefer to start with one of the AUs we talked about where McCree and Genji are forming a close romantic relationship. Maybe it could be in the Blackwatch verse, or the post-recall verse.

I know I wanted to have a separate Blackwatch verse with Lauz / Reyes when she finishes his app. But what could be even more interesting, is Genji and Jesse running into their old Commander as he is now, the Reaper. That's bound to be a fucking emotional trip.

jigen + jesse JESSE MCCREEAh, don't worry about the delay, I was actually incredibly busy lately, so not much of a big deal! Also, I think it would be a lot more likely for Jesse to approach Jigen because Jigen never approaches anyone since he's an anti-social loser. But he would probably get some sort of "affinity vibe" from Jesse, that's for sure. He's kinda good at reading people like that. So, I dunno if you want to start the thread or if you want me to start? I mean, even if Jigen doesn't approach Jesse, he could notice the guy, at least XD click here to reply to my shipper

levi + jesse
i don't have a lot to say here but i do know that jesse would exasperate the f u c k out of him. i mean, most people do, but he'd look at jesse and his antics and be like what the actual fuck are you doing. and i mean jesse is older but levi also acts like an 80 year-old man that's just angry and bitter at everything. but still he'd be consistently judging jesse cause levi finds him so fucking Extra LOL!

levi + jesse
he IS extra....in comparison to what levi is used to. eren was even a little bit Extra to him. but yeah, you're right, levi is exasperated a lot. i think that's part of the problem though, that jesse is in a child-like state and levi doesn't...understand that. he's way too serious, though i guess he has his moments, but he's been through too much shit to be childlike in any capacity. but, of course, he'll appreciate the business in whatever way levi can appreciate that, but he's still like >> and yes, levi understands that he's a guardian and doing a good thing and being good whatever, but he's still like. you're obnoxious, shut up LOL
