Satya Vaswani, commonly known as Symmetra is a playable character from Overwatch, a first-person shooter game by Blizzard.


Satya is a technomancer working for the architectural Vishkar corporation. She was present in Rio de Janeiro when Vishkar were transforming the slums and Lúcio Correia dos Santos stole Vishkar technology.[1]

It was revealed in the comic A Better World that Symmetra is on the autism spectrum.


A lot of fanworks portray Satya as cold, snarky or judgemental. This often connects with fans headcanoning her as being friendly towards Hanzo Shimada, who is also seen as quite cold and critical.

A lot of fanworks portray Satya's in-game turrets as her children or pets.[2] Fans will also sometimes use in-game scenery and her six turrets to make scenes or visual jokes.

There is a lot of fanart of Satya in traditional indian dress.[3]


The juggernaut ship involving symmetra is Symmetra/Sombra.[4] Since they are both part of corporations working against (or with views disagreeing with) Overwatch, many fans ship them together. This is also true of Junkrat/Symmetra. She is also shipped with Fareeha Amari.[5]

While many headcanon her as being friendly with Hanzo Shimada, this is predominantly portrayed as a platonic relationship.
