Game developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher EA recently shared the character details of the newest Legend Horizon in video game Apex Legends.
Horizon is a charmingly eccentric astrophysicist who was hired to find a solution after it was found out that the Outlands is in danger with its energy crisis. She then moved her family to the scientific research station on Olympus in order to start her important work.
Dr. Somers was assisted by Dr. Reid and discovered the element called Branthium. It was an element that could have potentially given them limitless energy, but the problem was it was only found on the accretion disk of a black hole. The two scientists departed on a dangerous mission to prove her theory right, but there was a betrayal.
Dr. Reid betrayed her and stole the Branthium and sent Dr. Somers shuttle into the black hole’s orbit. Horizon did survive by using her wits. She modified her robotic vacuum companion N.E.W.T. to escape. The only problem was that time has accelerated while she was in the orbit of the black hole. She found herself in the outskirts of Olympus 87 years later.
Horizon is now on a mission to find a way to get back in time to be with her son and she needs to funds. She joins Apex Games with her new nickname as the mater of gravity.
Real Name: Dr. Mary Somers Age: 37 (Give or take an extra 88 years…) Home World: Psamathe Tactical Ability: Gravity Lift Passive Ability: Spacewalk Ultimate Ability: Black Hole
