Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Trait: Prioritize attacking lowest DEF enemy
+ A very specialized sniper with a large attack range that focuses on weakening enemies for other operators to finish off
+ S2: Extremely high raw ATK, more than enough to break through almost any DEF and still deal a significant amount of damage. Decent when paired with Provence as she can weaken enemies into the HP range for Provence's skills to activate. The Slow lasts long enough to keep an enemy continuously slowed.
+ Great skill up time
- S2: The inability to attack targets under 50% HP is a huge hindrance as she usually can't kill enemies on her own
- Archetype: High DP cost and slow ASPD

Operator Overview

“Doctor, is it OK to make friends freely in Rhodes Island? ....No, uh, I just want to be friends with those Laterano people. From a young age, I really like Laterano's guns. That's why I made my own ‘gun.’”

Plenty of Doctors should be able to feel a kinship with Andreana for one simple reason: she’s a gun nut. Although civilians are strictly banned from carrying guns in her homeland of Iberia, Andreana went to the effort to craft herself an incredibly special crossbow that has the appearance of a sniper rifle. Who wouldn’t want to wield such a wacky weapon? Unfortunately, this (as well as a mysterious event in her past that even Andreana doesn’t remember) seems to have attracted the attention of the Iberian Inquisition. It’s probably for the best that Andreana has left Iberia and joined Rhodes Island as a 5* Long Range Sniper, specializing in attacking high-HP enemies and Slowing their movement speed.

Like other Long-Range Snipers, Andreana’s Trait causes her to prioritize the lowest-DEF enemy within her enormous attack range. However, the more important aspect of her targeting comes from her Skill 2, Interdictive Sniping Tactics. While this Skill is active, Andreana gains a colossal ATK boost and Slows enemies with her attacks; however, she will only target enemies with more than half their HP remaining. Interdictive Sniping Tactics is good for pumping a lot of damage quickly into an enemy so the rest of your team can finish the job, and it synergizes beautifully with Operators who rely on enemies being at low HP (i.e., Pramanix or Absinthe). Andreana is also a good accompaniment to Abyssal Hunter Operators like Skadi and Specter, since her Abyssal Intuition Talent increases the ASPD of all Abyssal Hunters on the field.

Andreana’s S2 is both powerful and unique, but it does come with drawbacks. Most obviously, Andreana cannot actually kill enemies while her S2 is active (unless she takes them from over half HP to 0 with one shot). Her high base ATK and the hefty ATK buff from her S2 are also held back by her low ASPD (a common weakness of Long Range Snipers) and her high DP cost doesn’t help matters. It’s also important to remember that Long Range Snipers don’t prioritize aerial enemies, so Andreana isn’t necessarily the best Sniper for a stage with a lot of flying drones. On the other tentacle, the damage potential of Andreana’s S2 is simply staggering, and the added Slow is a tasty bonus. As long as you understand Andreana’s shortcomings, you may be pleasantly surprised by her strengths!

Profile

Born in Iberia, Andreana serves as a bodyguard to Operator Incandescence. The two joined Rhodes Island together.
She came with a strong foundation as a sniper. After receiving professional training, she has served well as a Sniper Operator.

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 Andreana has no signs of Originium infections.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.12u/L
Operator Andreana rarely comes into contact with Originium.

A laid-back Iberian.
She tends to be slow to speak, and shows little on her face. When Andreana first came to Rhodes Island, she was mistaken for the quiet, uncommunicative type. But after getting to know her, and seeing how caring this great listener is, that impression quickly collapsed.

While Andreana speaks often of Iberia, she and Incandescence came to us through a branch office in Rim Billiton.
Of course, this is to be expected, considering Rhodes Island does not and cannot have an office in Iberia. In fact, there’s only one kind of Iberian we find outside Iberia, as far as we know——the ones who decided to leave. Incandescence, Andreana and their respective families left Iberia together to settle in Rim Billiton. The two submitted their resumes to Rhodes Island not long after.
As for why they brought their families, Andreana appears troubled when posed with the question. She insisted on learning to shoot, despite her family’s objections. That troubled their relationship and she ran away from home, where she met Incandescence. But in the end, family ties are tough to break. The two families ultimately made contact and agreed to leave Iberia as a group.

Andreana’s hobbies certainly draw the eye. Particularly the gun she is never seen without.
When she first joined Rhodes Island, her weapon perplexed many of our operators who were familiar with guns— Questions such as: 'She’s a Lateranan who looks like an Iberian?' 'Did she rob a Lateranan? Such a badass?' 'Iberians can use guns too?' swirled around endlessly. After all, Blacksteel’s guns are assumed to be some kind of corporate secret, but a non-Laterano freelance mercenary strutting around with a huge gun gets people talking.
Of course, everything becomes clear once you see her shoot an inkball out of that thing. Apparently, it’s a modified crossbow made to look like a gun. Because Andreana is a committed firearms enthusiast.
According to her, Laterano culture has had a strong influence on the Iberians, who often display an affection for it. After seeing one of the statues in church as a child, Andreana fell in love with the weapons, and devoted herself to mechanical engineering in hopes of making a crossbow in the style of a gun, since she lacks the affinity for Originium Arts necessary to use a real one herself.
But there is a point here worth examining, and one Andreana herself did not realize. She mentioned that she was dragged into court over the weapon several times, only to be chastised when it became clear it was not a real gun. That seems reasonable. But with the limited information we have, the Iberian courts should be very powerful. And for such an organization to grab her 'several times' for something known to be harmless the first time indicates that they may have been using it as a pretense to find something else.
However, since we lack reliable intelligence about the internal politics of a country closed so long to outsiders, we are not able to form any concrete judgments about the situation. And since, at least according to Andreana herself, she has not been harmed or unnecessarily interrogated, we leave the matter to speculation.

[Classified Log]
It was clear that while Kal'tsit had a detailed knowledge of both Skadi and Spectre, and even seemed equally familiar with Andreana, the rest of the Medical Department staff, including Warfarin, knew little about them. And just like with the others, Kal'tsit determined that Andreana's presence at Rhodes Island would not be adverse. Or at least that the benefits of them joining us would outweigh the potential harm. Otherwise, they would have been found inadmissible.
As for me, I don’t know what the story is. Haha, Kal'tsit actually said it would be okay to tell me, but I refused. Knowing too much can get you in trouble. I’ll leave this one to Kal'tsit.
What I took from her is that the difference between Andreana on one side and Specter and Skadi on the other is something like that between a drop of ink into clear water and a proper inkwell. The drop of ink is itself an infringement on the dignity of life, to the point that Kal'tsit expressed clear disdain for it: 'There are those who have reached their hands into places they do not belong. Those for whom this stupidity is very much in character.'

Upgrade to Elite LV2.

Regarding what Andreana mentioned, facing the strange body conditions of the two operators, Skadi and Specter, along with the problem of flawed Originium Arts in her and the two operators, the Medical Department continuously conducted medical checkups for her using different methods and approaches.

From the findings, other than repeatedly coming to the conclusion that her physique is far stronger than an average person, there are no new results. Using Doctor Warfarin’s words, ‘What, at this level, there’s completely no way to compare to Skadi’s body.’ Although these words inevitably brought about ambiguity, but indeed compared to Skadi, Andreana's physique can be explained by a more advantageous puberty process-- After all, some are born stronger than others. It can be only said that letting her be a sniper operator may be a waste of talent. But this is a personal choice, and Rhodes Island will not deliberately interfere.

Anyway, after confirming that there are no abnormalities with her body, this issue concluded with nothing definite. Just that to be safe, the Medical Department will still suggest that Andreana regularly receive examinations.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant I hope you’re not a pain to deal with like Monica, Doctor.
Talk 1 Monica has a strange taste in just about everything. For example, when selecting her code name, her alternatives were all weird things like Wiseman or Baker. At least Incandescence is somewhat normal-sounding.
Talk 2 That Skadi and Spectre, those friends from the same race, when I see those two, it’s almost as if... I don’t know exactly how to describe it, but it’s kind of like that love at first sight from those fairy tales? No way, huh. If that was the case, maybe I should get dressed up...
Talk 3 To be honest, I wasn’t really interested in coming to Rhodes Island at first. After all, Monica was the one you hired, and I’m just her bodyguard. But after she left, I ended up unemployed and finding new work is a pain in the ass, so I decided to take my chances.
Talk after Promotion 1 Monica and I lived together when we were in Iberia. It was a real hassle taking care of someone like that with no semblance of regularity in her life. But that’s just how things are. I don’t get along with my family, and I have nowhere else to go. So she just took me in.
Talk after Promotion 2 Because of the way my weapon looks, I often got visits from the Tribunal. They disassembled it, saw its structure, and then chewed me out. Though I know it gives them the wrong idea, but that’s not really my problem. They get used to it after a while, as long as I don’t go around scaring people with it. Heheh.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 Doctor, Rhodes Island doesn’t have any restrictions on their operators making friends, right? ...No, um, I just wanted to make friends with those Laterano folks. I’ve always loved Laterano’s guns ever since I was little, so I tried to emulate one when I made this gun.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 Speaking of which, the old hag once told me that I got myself involved in something when I was little, though I was too young to remember anything at that time. She also doesn’t want to tell me anything. In any case, my life’s pretty normal now, so it must not have been a huge deal.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Doctor, you really amaze me at times. Just dealing with Monica already takes everything out of me, and yet you have to take care of so many operators... In any case, let me know if you ever have any difficulties. I have some experience looking after people.
Idle Your work-rest balance is all out of whack, just like Monica. *sigh*...Blanket, blanket...
Onboard I used to be Monica’s... Err, I guess I should call her Incandescence now... Anyway, I used to be her bodyguard. She finally found herself a proper job now, so I’m free to do other stuff. Anyway, pleased to meet you.
Watching Battle Record So this is how the pros do things...
Promotion 1 Before I came here, I thought being a security guard at a pharmaceutical company would be pretty chill. If I didn't make the cut, I could've been doing janitorial work or something. Not going to lie, I’m starting to regret that a bit now.
Promotion 2 To be honest, I never thought I’d be able to achieve something like this... I never really gave it much thought before, but the feeling of getting stronger isn’t half bad. Thanks, Doctor.
Added to Squad Time for the mission? Got it.
Appointed as Squad Leader I’m leading? Mm... I’ll try my best.
Depart Hopefully we don’t run into any trouble.
Begin Operation Ugh, here we go again.
Selecting Operator 1 Ready to move.
Selecting Operator 2 *sigh* I’d like to listen to some music.
Deployment 1 The enemy doesn’t seem to have noticed yet.
Deployment 2 The visibility’s pretty good here.
In Battle 1 Focus...
In Battle 2 Hello. And goodbye.
In Battle 3 That person’s pretty fashionable...
In Battle 4 There’s a lot of ‘em. What a pain.
4-star Result Doctor, want some candy? You should relax a bit. I’m pretty tired too.
3-star Result I’ll double-check to see if we missed anything.
Sub 3-star Result Good enough? All right. I don’t want to deal with that annoying stuff either.
Operation Failure Let’s go, Doctor. I’ve secured the retreat route.
Assigned to Facility Guess I’ll take a look around first.
Tap Hey...
Trust Tap Doctor, is there anything I can help with?
Title Arknights.
Greeting Doctor, want some candy?
