‘Hello Boss, I am Jaye. Captain Hoshiguma said I am more suited to do things here, so I’ve come. I know about seafood, can cook, and is alright with knives, I should be able to help.
A seafood hawker from Lungmen who looks fierce and has come with Hoshiguma’s recommendation. Much news about him has been spread in Lungmen’s underworld.
Initially other operators thought that Hoshiguma introduced a fierce character. But after interacting for some time, everyone found out that he is always quiet, likes to read and is good at cooking. He is a little cautious when interacting with others, and will set up his stall at the shopping district like Croissant, to make some snacks for other operators. Actually he has a very good personality.
Adept with knives, he is now a specialist operator on the battlefield.
Place of birth: Lungmen
Specialty: Stall economy, cookery (knife work)

Jaye is a 4★ Specialst with an new Archetype and DP mechanics. He has a reduced Redeployment Time, does not refund DP when he is retreated, and consumes DP at regular intervals while deployed. If there is not enough DP to feed his deployment requirement, then he is automatically retreated. His Skills offer a Silence and healing option.
Talents and Skills
Trait: Reduced redeployment time. Does not refund any DP when retreating. Consumes a certain amount of DP in intervals when deployed (automatically retreated if DP is insufficient).
Talent: When attacking [Infected Creatures], increase ATK
Skill 1: During skill activation, increase ATK and seal the target's abilities for a short period. Infinite duration
Skill 2: During skill activation, increase ATK. Every attack will heal a nearby ally for a certain amount of HP. Infinite duration
Note: These are first impressions and based on conjecture since we don’t know the exact details.
Operators with new Archetypes are always a bit difficult to discuss before details are known, and Jaye is no exception. Based on the DP mechanics listed, it seems quite likely that his initial DP Costs will be low. It will be interesting to see how his "reduced redeployment time" compares to the Fast-Redeploy Specialists. His strength and usability will depend a lot on the details of his DP consumption and possibly re-deployment time.
He will also be the first Specialist Operator with the cabability to heal other Operators. This could be interesting in Class Restriction situations, but whether he can act as a dedicated healer will depend on the strength of the heal (outside of the drawback of him needing to attack to heal)
