She's Too Hot for You

"I'm Surtr. Are you the Doctor they spoke of? From now on I'll be working at Rhodes Island, hopefully you won't let me feel bored."
A Sarkaz girl with a blank past. Almost unable to use Originium Arts, and her physical aptitude is quite average, but she has excellent performance in combat. According to the testing operator's feedback, this is connected to her two-handed sword. Whimsical, carefree, wandering by herself all day, no one knows what she's looking for. All they know is that she has a record book, filled with nonsensical location names. When she arrives at a place, she'd speak to herself, and cross out one of the names. She wouldn't belittle someone without reason, but her attitude during conversations is not friendly. It is somewhat difficult to communicate with her. However, things might change if you bring ice cream with you?
Surtr is a 6★ Arts Guard with a death-defying Talent , and Skills that bring multi-target fiery pain to her enemies over an extended range.
Talents and Skills
Trait: Deals Arts Damage
Talent 2: When receiving fatal damage, continuously prevent HP from going below 1, and retreat from the battlefield several seconds later
Skill 1: The next attack has increased ATK. If the target dies, recover all SP.
Skill 2: During skill activation, increase ATK, attack distance, and attack target count. When attacking only a single target, further increase ATK.
Skill 3: On skill activation, immediately recover all of Surtr's HP. During skill activation, increase ATK, attack distance, attack target count and Max HP, however, continuously lose HP (after a certain period, HP loss percentage stops increasing). Infinite duration. (Note: The CN description is a bit vague, so the precise details may not be known until it is live)
Note: These are first impressions and based on conjecture since we don’t know the exact details.
Have you always wanted a Melee Ifrit? Then this might be the Operator you've been waiting for! Surtr will be our first 6★ Arts Guard, meaning she deals Arts damage with her attacks instead of Physical.
Her S1 is a single target skill that refills its SP if the target dies, which could make it excellent for times consistent damage is preferred, like when facing a steady stream of enemies. S2 dials things up by extending her range and target count and boosting her ATK. It seems like this one might be manually triggered, making it good for burst situations, and the fact that ATK is boosted further when attacking only one target makes it very versatile for any situation.
S3 looks to be the melee Ifrit Skill. It is an infinite-duration Skill, and other Skills of this type that we have seen have been very strong (see Blaze and Thorns). When the Skill activates, her ATK, attack distance, number of targets, and Max HP all increase. The downside is that she continuously loses HP while the Skill is active, though this is compensated for at least somewhat by her regaining full health when the Skill activates. It appears like healing support will be necessary to keep her alive once she starts to unleash her fiery fury.
Overall, there is every reason to believe she will be a strong 6* that will competently fill a useful role.
