"Before I was Monica's... Oh, I should call her Incandescent now. I was kind of her bodyguard. Now that she finally found a proper job, I can do other things as well. Anyway, please take care of me."


Born in Iberia, the bodyguard of operator Incandescent, was hired along with Incandescent by Rhodes Island.

She doesn't usually speak, and rarely changes emotions, so most thought she was the quiet type when she first arrived at Rhodes Island. But as time passed, she showed her caring and willingness to listen to others, and that impression went away on its own.

Seems that from her experience of taking care of Incandescent, she has expertise in many daily things. She gets surprisingly talkative when discussing such topics.

Additionally, the fact that she's Iberian yet uses a gun originally caused a lot of misunderstandings, but they were resolved immediately—the gun was only a replica she copied from Laterano designs, and is far from an actual gun in terms of structure and function. The reason she did this is because of the Laterano influence on Iberia, and she's one of the many who enjoys Laterano's gun culture.

Andreana is a 5★ Long-range Sniper with Slowing utility.

First Impressions

Note: These are first impressions and based on conjecture since we don’t know the exact details. 

Andreana's strength will depend on the details of her buffs and Slow effects.  The long reach of Long-range Snipers allows enemies to be slowed sooner than with other Slowing Operators and they have very high ATK stats, but their long Attack Interval means they will have less Slow "uptime" and typically have less overall DPS.

Based on the PV, Andreana's faction is guessed to be Rhodes Island (we'll see for sure when the official information is released). Like Skadi, Andreana's Talent buffs other Abyssal Hunters, but with only 2 Operators currently of that faction (Skadi and Specter), the buff is not widely applicable, especially since it wouldn't even buff herself.

It will be interesting to see if her ATK and ASPD buffs and Slow effects outweigh the typical drawbacks of Long-Range Snipers.
