Operator Overview

“Good grief... Doctor, you need to take care of yourself. Don't keep making us do it for you.”

A serious and responsible medical intern, Ansel is one of the few members of Rhodes Island who is not Infected. He cares for his allies with the strength of his medical knowledge alone, as a single-target Medic with a surprisingly unique kit and a charmingly androgynous appearance.

Ansel’s Talent, Additional Healing, grants a small chance to heal an extra ally, and though you can’t depend on it due to its random nature, a proc can give your team some breathing room in a fight. His Skill, Healing Range Up, is more reliable: when activated, it increases Ansel’s healing power and (more importantly) his range. With Healing Range Up active, Ansel can heal allies from halfway across the map.

Ansel’s emphasis on range makes him noteworthy even in comparison to higher-rarity Medics. Many players use Ansel for quite some time, and experienced Doctors can sustain some interesting formations with smart use of his Skill. Unfortunately, as a 3 Operator, Ansel lacks an E2 promotion, so his stats won’t keep up with the needs of high-end content. This does not detract from Ansel’s value as a budget Medic with useful abilities who is well worth investing in, especially early game.

Increase Trust to 50.
Ansel's maintains a very calm demeanor. No matter how complicated the situation, he gives priority to providing timely medical support. This calm personality makes the enemy even question whether or not he is taking part in the battle. Very few people can care for the wounded in a well-ordered manner while there are explosions and collapsing roofs all around them. Of course, this is also because Ansel is very strict with his own rules as a medical practitioner. He works hard to follow established medical regulations and doesn't hesitate to let others know if they are violating them.

Increase Trust to 100.
Ansel was born in a city in Rim Billiton that is, like so many of them, famous for mining. He has three older brothers and one younger sister. After his mother passed away due to infection, his exhausted father gave him to his sonless brother to adopt. Despite growing up in the such an environment without a steady household to live in, he nevertheless grew into a gentle and responsible man. When Ansel realized that most of the workers around him were in poor health due to overwork, he decided to become a medic, hoping to one day alleviate some of the suffering in the world.

Increase Trust to 150.
During his time at medical school, Ansel sent his resume to several large medical companies and research institutes in Rim Billiton, but he lacked the money required for further study. His sparse resume was rejected by almost all of the companies. Of the two companies that did not reject his resume, Ansel chose the newly established Rhodes Island Pharmaceutical Company for his internship. During the half-year internship period, Ansel proved himself to be diligent, patient, and attentive to medicine, which earned him recognition from one of the company's top doctors, Dr. Kal'tsit.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant Doctor, it's time for your injection. Oh, um, are you alright?! Are you scared of needles?
Talk 1 Like Dr. Kal'tsit is always telling you, Doctor, you really need some exercise. I'm new here, but you still need to listen to my advice.
Talk 2 Cardigan! We've told you, if you move like that when you strike, you'll wind up getting hurt.
Talk 3 Good grief... Doctor, you need to take care of yourself. You can't make us do it for you.
Talk after Promotion 1 Are you worried about my health after so many night shifts? You shouldn't be. My race has a unique way of producing hormones, which allows us to handle night activities better. So I can hand my shift over to Hibiscus at just the right time.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 You must stop with the midnight snacks. Don't go bringing up my eating habits. I eat at night because of my race! Yes, it's a racial trait!
Talk after Trust Increase 2 I'm Ansel. It's a little embarrassing to admit, but I chose to become a Medic because I've been sickly since I was young. But now that I'm an Operator, I'll make sure not to burden you. So please treat me just the same way you treat the others.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 I know everyone does what they can. But I heard from Dr. Kal'tsit that Steward and Melantha's conditions aren't looking too good... My job is to make their lives as easy as possible. Doctor, let's redouble our efforts, together.
Idle Adnachiel, could you ask Cardigan to settle down for a moment? The Doctor is resting.
Onboard I am Ansel, a medical intern. I'll be assisting with surgery and internal medicine, among other things. I look forward to working with you.
Watching Battle Record I hope I didn't cause you any trouble.
