Justice rains from above!
~ Pharah using her Ultimate.

Pharah (real name: Fareeha Amari) is one of the main protagonists and playable character in the video game Overwatch. She is an Egyptian soldier and a security chief at Helix Security International. She descends from a long line of warriors and soldiers, including her mother Ana.

She is Japanese versions, voiced by Romi Park and English versions, voiced by Jen Cohn.


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.

In Mission Statement, 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.


Pharah is loyal and honorable, holding duty above all else. She's strictly determined willing to keep the peace no matter what. However, Pharah is a bit arrogant at times, as she claims to "always get her prey." Before the events of Mission Statement, Pharah never really knew which was more important: completing the mission or protecting her team. However, after dealing with Anubis, she learned to preserve both the innocent and her team more generally, and grew even more resolute to follow in her mother's footsteps. Even though she never got the chance to join Overwatch, she seems to be fan of them, judging by her conversation of telling Reinhardt about the poster of him on her wall.


  • Hover Jets (Passive) - Pharah is able to hover in the air by slowly lifting her upwards each time the player presses their jump button. This allows Pharah to stay aerial indefinitely after launching herself with Jump Jet.
  • Rocket Launcher - Pharah's primary fire. Fires high-damage projectiles that deal splash-damage and mild knockback, dealing higher damage with a direct hit. The projectiles are ball-shaped rockets that travel slower than normal gunfire due to their size, and move in a straight path that never dips. The rockets can deal self-damage if shot against an object too close to Pharah.
    • 6 rounds ammunition
    • 1 shot per second
    • 35 m/s travelling speed
    • Pinpoint accuracy
    • 2.5 m explosion radius
    • 120 direct hit damage
    • 24.6-80 splash damage
    • 12.3-40 self damage
    • Cannot headshot
    • Not subject to fallof damage
  • Concussive Blast - Pharah fires a blue projectile from her left wrist that solely displaces opponents and deals no damage, but is potent for its very high knockback splash effect, which can be used for multiple purposes. Can be used to move enemies or yourself.
    • 60 m/s travelling speed
    • 8 meter radius
    • 9 second cooldown
  • Jump Jet - Pharah immediately launches herself high into the air, where she can hover and play from the skies using Hover Jets to hover and her abilities to attack in her advantageous position.
    • 11.55 meter range
    • 10 second cooldown
  • Barrage (Ultimate) - Pharah's Ultimate ability, which can only be used when the Ultimate Meter is fully charged. Pharah will unleash a rapid-fire barrage of dangerous missiles that move fast enough to quickly bombard the area Pharah is aiming at. The missiles altogether deal massive amounts of damage from the numerous missiles dealing splash damage and increased damage from direct contact. While the attack is deadly, Pharah becomes stationary and cannot stop the Ultimate, but can still turn to change where she's firing at. The splash damage can harm Pharah herself and potentially kill her if the rockets are exploding way too close to her.

    • 2 meter explosion radius
    • 40 direct hit damage
