“The crackling of flowing electricity, just hearing it gives me a sense of security.”
“A pink tent appeared in the engineering department?”
"...According to the on-site investigation, such a thing was confirmed to exist. A fluffy and soft head slowly appeared from the tent... an unknown mythical organism!"
“No, this is ‘Little Hug Pillow’, it’s quite common in Sami gift shops.”
“Ah, you’re the one living in the tent….?”
“Is that weird? Uh, I’m new here, you can call me Pudding”. Although that codename doesn’t sound too proper, it’ll be fine."

Note: These are first impressions and based on conjecture since we don’t know the exact details.
Pudding joins the game as the first 4 Star Chain Caster, joining 5 star Leizi, and 6 Star Passenger. Being available for purchase with Shop Vouchers (red certs), Pudding will be a member of this archetype that is available to ALL players, since the other 2 are dacha-only.
Chain Casters are a notoriously under-tuned Archetype, with their high DP costs, slow attack speeds, generally underwhelming DPS potential, and attack mechanic limitations. Pudding's kit attempts to address some of this: her S1 increases her ASPD, and her S2 allows for bouncing between enemies that have already been hit once. S2 will certainly make it easier for her to max the number of bounces she can get. However, it seems very unlikely that these will be enough to make up for the failings of the Archetype as a whole. Pudding is likely to be a collection-only Operator.
