Gérard Lacroix was a key member of Overwatch, spearheading their operations against the terrorist organization, Talon. He survived multiple assassination attempts by their agents. In 2068, Gérard, along with blackwatch commander Reyes and agent McCree, were present in a new headquarters in Rome, discussing their plans to take down one of Talon's leading members and funders, Antonio after a recent incursion in Oslo, Norway. Unbeknownst to them, a Talon covert agent had planted a bomb in the building. Reyes and McCree were leaving the building when it went off, escaping mostly unharmed, but Gérard was put into a coma. He is seen debriefing Reyes following the Blackwatch mission that killed Antonio, indicating he woke up fairly quickly.
Talon, frustrated at their failure, turned their attention instead to Gérard's wife, Amélie. Subjecting her to neural reconditioning, they allowed her recovery by Overwatch, successfully planting her as a sleeper agent.
She killed Gérard two weeks later while he slept.
