Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Talent: Increased damage when attacking enemies with less than 40% HP.
+ Great Arts damage potential under the right conditions with multi hit attacks
+ S1: Infinite duration buff with a decent modifier and unique target prioritization that synergizes with her Talent.
+ S2: high burst potential.
= Her niche is finishing off enemies that are already weakened
- S2 and Talent: Their conditions can be very limiting, especially for S2.
- She needs a team to be built around her to lower enemy HP in order to take advantage of her high damage potential

Operator Overview

"Why do I keep my weapon right here? Didn’t I already tell you? You need to be able to work in peace, and anyone who wants to bother you is going to have to answer to my little friend first."

One of the few survivors of the Chernobog Catastrophe, Absinthe was salvaged from the wreckage of the city by a Rhodes Island rescue team. Starving and skeletal when she was rescued, Absinthe has had a long road to recovery, but now that she’s back on her feet, she’s working for Rhodes Island as a 5* ST Caster. Wielding a magical Arts firearm left behind by her father, Absinthe specializes in executing injured enemies.

The executions begin with Absinthe’s Talent, Enforcer, which gives her bonus damage against enemies who are below 40% health. From there, her Skills take her down two different paths to the gallows. Her Skill 1, Enforcement Mode, is a permanent buff that increases Absinthe’s ATK and changes her targeting so she always attacks the enemy with the lowest HP percentage in her range. This is an excellent general-purpose Skill, but it does take a long time to charge and activate. If you’d rather go all-out on executing the weak, go for her Skill 2, Terminating Burst. While this Skill is active, Absinthe starts firing multiple shots at a time, all of which can benefit from her Talent! Unfortunately, while it’s active, Absinthe also stops targeting enemies who have more than half their health, so timing the usage of this Skill must be done with care….

Absinthe has good ATK and the bonus from Enforcer is quite large, so her damage output can be rather sizable. However, unlike most Casters, her damage output is tied to her target’s HP more than the activation of a particular Skill (especially with Terminating Burst). Sometimes this works in Absinthe’s favor—it certainly makes her useful against enemies with high HP or those that get stronger as their HP falls. However, sometimes you need on-command burst damage to combat a nasty wave of enemies, and Absinthe isn’t able to provide this. In those situations, it would be better to look to another Caster. However, if you can reliably get enemies into the HP range for Absinthe to pop off, you’ll find the numbers of Rhodes Island’s enemies shrinking by the shot.

Profile

Operator Absinthe, one of the Ursus civilians rescued in the Chernobog incident, voluntarily applied to join Rhodes Island.
After receiving a series of tests and undergoing training, she was approved to join an operational squad as a Caster Operator, while also providing services within the ship such as patrolling.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging tests reveal clear, normal outlines of internal organs, and no abnormal shadows have been detected. Originium granules have not been detected in the circulatory system and there is no sign of infection. At this time, this operator is believed to be uninfected.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 0%
Operator Absinthe has no signs of Originium infections.
Being able to keep herself safe in situations like those means that her abilities must be solid enough, in addition to having the devil’s luck.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.14u/L
Operator Absinthe had been exposed to an Originium-dense region for weeks prior to boarding, and extra attention must paid to potential virulence.

A survivor of the Chernobog-Lungmen incident and daughter of a local policeman, Absinthe, following her onboarding, described in detail Chernobog’s gradual descent into chaos under Reunion’s occupation. According to her account, Reunion’s attack came very suddenly. The local police force, as the basic unit of security in the city, could barely maintain order and evacuate the crowds even at the beginning. But as the situation worsened and the Catastrophe arrived, the line of defense was torn down, with violence and panic engulfing the entire city like a wildfire.
The Ursursians who remained struggled amidst the despair to cling to their lives, and Absinthe worked together with a small team of local police officers following the Catastrophe. In a short period of time, this group went from initially trying to maintain order and protect civilians, to a state of being unable to fend for themselves, even stealing food to survive. When Rhodes Island’s rescue team found Absinthe, she was laying on her back amidst a heap of rubble, alone and dying from hunger. If the rescue team showed up any later, there is no saying what would have happened to her. Perhaps not even her body would have been left in place.

Through the entire crisis, the survivors trapped in the city waited for the arrival of those tasked with protecting them, but help never arrived.

During the time she was training and taking exams, Absinthe's performance satisfied all of Instructor Dobermann’s standards. She may not have been gifted with great athleticism or combat acumen, but her tenacity coupled with the basic training she had received helped her quickly grow into a qualified operator. However, her lackadaisical attitude towards getting injured during training and exceedingly cavalier lifestyle habits are causes for concern.
The medical department’s assessment shows that Absinthe’s mental health markers are troubling; she views many issues with significant pessimism, and also displays degrees of self-loathing and self-destructive tendencies. This Ursus girl rarely seeks to establish personal agency in her daily life, instead subconsciously trying to help others around her. However, at the same time, she belittles her own actions to the point of even negating whatever results she may have achieved, a behavior that, in the eyes of the medic operators, is very concerning.
Another important issue to bring up is the strong concerns raised by the Ursus Student Self-government Group. Before joining Rhodes Island, Absinthe knew nothing about the members of the Self-government Group, and vice versa. It is unclear why Absinthe now pays so much attention to their activities, and she is unwilling to talk about the matter. These anomalous behaviors may have something to do with her past experiences in Peterheim Middle School. We can surmise that there must be some undiscovered facts regarding the time she spent there.
Under the premise that this status will not cause damage to Rhodes Island, related background investigations have been temporarily suspended out of respect for Operator Absinthe.

The attack on Chernobog was a key component of Reunion’s plans. They plotted in secret, completely catching the city off guard when they struck. Before Chernobog’s residents realized what was going on, much of the city had already been occupied.
We can reconstruct an account of what happened in the incident’s aftermath based upon oral narratives from survivors. Reunion’s leaders partitioned the city and controlled different zones, with certain zones being controlled more strictly than others. In certain places, people could remain unharmed as long as they stayed behind closed doors. But many citizens in other areas were not so lucky... You already know what I mean by that. Certain Reunion leaders encouraged the Infected to “claim their legitimate rights,” which is a euphemism for allowing gratuitous violence. When an excessively emotional catharsis morphs into hivemind behavior, one can imagine the kind of disaster that would ensue.
Police? Compared to the sheer number of Infected who had given in to fanaticism, the amount of peace officers and military police simply was too small. While they were better equipped and trained than the average Reunion rioter, that alone was not sufficient, and the following Catastrophe tore through what little defenses were left in the city. The Chernobog police continued to send backup requests to the garrison during this time, but judging from the results, such attempts were futile.

How did that girl stay alive in those conditions until the time she was rescued? What kind of things did she have to go through?
I won’t ask her to answer those questions. I can see that she’s doing well enough with us, and despite her doubts and anxieties, she’s making an effort to understand what happened in the past and shake off the lingering effects of those events. I even saw her trying to make friends, to try to be more inviting and to not push others away. This is no easy feat, and it is also a good sign. There’s no way we could heartlessly pry open those wounds. We all need to be more cautious and circumspect when dealing with people who have suffered through disasters. If she is willing to open up, then we shall listen. As for right now, she has already done enough.

—Transcript of conversation with Archives Department’s logistics operator

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.
The vast majority of rescued Chernobog refugees will, after a short resting period, stay with relatives or friends, or to go elsewhere to live alone. After that, Rhodes Island operators will escort them to their chosen destinations so that they may start a new life. At the same time, some of the refugees will end up staying with Rhodes Island for a variety of reasons.
Absinthe’s parents were confirmed to have passed away during the Chernobog incident. When the logistics operator confirmed other kinship ties with Absinthe, the latter rejected the offer to be sent to another city and voluntarily applied to join Rhodes Island. Without a doubt, what she had experienced during the last month had driven her to make this decision.
The devastation wrought by Reunion’s occupation, the destruction caused by the Catastrophe, and the ugly face of today’s complex conflicts - all of these may have well played a role. As the turmoil continued, a shortage of food and drinking water turned these conflicts into something much simpler and more primal. Whether Infected or not, status mattered little when the only thing that remained was a cruel struggle for basic necessities.

The Medical Department has been closely monitoring the mental health of all survivors of the Chernobog-Lungmen incident. Unlike the members of the Ursus Student Self-Government Group who also escaped from Chernobog, Absinthe’s depression and pain takes on a much more direct manner. She rarely shows a real smile, and very few people are able to approach her. More often then not, Absinthe chooses to stay far away from others and maintain a subdued silence. Nevertheless, Absinthe has already helped many people; she may be taciturn, but she is undoubtedly reliable. Perhaps Absinthe views her own actions as trivial and insignificant, but we believe that kindness begets kindness and eagerly look forward to Absinthe’s future development.
Just like the hair that she cut herself, perhaps only time can heal her scars.

Even though her words were filled with confusion, as if everything she knew to be true was faltering, she never let go of the equipment she inherited from her father.
That pure idealism, a belief in the beauty of justice and protecting those in need, has never truly been sullied, even despite being dragged through veritable hell.

Appointed as Assistant Why do I keep my weapon right here? Didn’t I already tell you? You need to be able to work in peace, and anyone who wants to bother you is going to have to answer to my little friend first.
Talk 1 This is a nice place. Everyone follows their orders and goes about their business, like an ideal island paradise isolated from reality.
Talk 2 Doctor, those students over there, are they all from Chernobog? They’re all from the same middle school? ...I see, I need to observe them a bit more.
Talk 3 Were you the one commanding at Chernobog? If that’s the case, you also should have seen the conditions over there. Doctor, why have you stayed silent this entire time? I’d never be able to do that...
Talk after Promotion 1 I did a good job? Someone like me who fled from her homeland, with no achievements to speak of, was really able to be of some use? ...Umm, what are you... Why are you patting my head?
Talk after Promotion 2 Who needs my protection? Who can I protect? Since that cataclysm, I’ve always been asking myself... I saw the malice in people's hearts spill out until it eventually drowned the city. Under those circumstances, perhaps justice is no longer worth mentioning, and no longer exist.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 What’s wrong with my hair? Huh, it’s a little messy? That’s just the way it is. Had to cut it myself when I fled the city... Umm, what’s with that expression? Don’t worry about it. It’s just hair after all, it’ll grow back by itself eventually.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 This equipment belonged to my father, a police officer who dedicated himself to protecting the public each and every day. I can understand, and I’ve never blamed him, neither I nor my mother. It’s just that... Doctor, everything my father did, was it really worth it?
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Those people, the expressions on those citizens’ faces, became identical to the ones of the murderers that destroyed the city. But they were clearly the people my father and I were supposed to protect. Doctor, what is actually just in this world, and what is it, that I should do... I just don’t know...
Idle So sleepy... But I can’t afford to... fall asleep... *yawn*...
Onboard Thank you for rescuing me; this life is yours to spend. Though there’s not much I‘m capable of, if you ever find some way for me to be useful, please let me know. Code name? ......Um, why don’t you just call me Absinthe.
