Operator Overview

Name: Arene

CV: cv: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka

-------------

"Codename Arene, I am officially joining today. So you're the Doctor... then let us try to get along, sensei."

-------------

Operator Arene, born in Laterano, but was exiled due to becoming infected, and sought education in Leithanien. He was raised in a family who studied heritage guns, but unlike most Lateranians who use guns, he is quite talented in Originium Arts.

His parents passed away after being dragged into a conspiracy. After taking a series of vengeful actions, Arene accepted arrangements from the Laterano Notarial Hall, and temporarily resides at Rhodes Island to wait for the situation to blow over.

He needs guidance. He needs a target.

We've seen too many cases where youngsters strayed off course during their growth. We've regretted enough.

Do not let such tragedy repeat itself.

-------------

Arene is a 4★ Ranged Guard that specializes in taking down Drones, as he prioritizes targeting them and has increased damage against them.  One Skill ups his Physical Damage and drops his Blocking to 0, while the other changes his attacks to Arts and provides multi-target attacks.

Talent and Skills

Archetype: Ranged Guard

Trait: Can launch Ranged Attacks that deal 80% of normal ATK

Talent: Prioritize attacking [Drones]. Increased ATK when attacking [Drones]

Skill 1: During skill activation, reduce Block count to 0. Every attack hits twice and deals a certain amount of Physical damage.

Skill 2: During skill activation, increase attack range and ranged attacks no longer have reduced damage. Attacks deal a certain amount of Arts damage and attack an additional target.

First Impressions

Note: These are first impressions and based on conjecture since we don’t know the exact details. 

Arene will be only the second Operator outside of the Sniper class to prioritize aerial enemies (the other being Glaucus).  This could potentially be useful for pesky Drone maps where Snipers are banned.  The ability to drop to 0 block with his S1 could make him an interesting choice as a frontliner that can avoid death by allowing tough enemies to pass by to blocking units placed behind him.  His S2 makes him another primarily Physical damage dealer that can provide Arts damage, which can be useful for ranged/caster bans, and also gives him the ability to take down normal OR high-DEF drones..

Ranged Guards are a strong Archetype  in Arknights, but it is also one that has extremely good options at higher rarities, and ones that many players will have already prioritized acquiring and developing.  It seems unlikely that his drone-targeting alone will be enough to make him a sought-after or priority Operator for gameplay reasons, but only time will tell!

Profile

Operator Arene, a Sankta born in Laterano, contracted Oripathy in an incident related to Laterano’s inherited weapons a few years ago. As such, he was exiled from Laterano. After leaving, he went to Leithanien to pursue his studies.

After passing his licensing test, he now provides his services as a guard operator and receives treatment at Rhodes Island.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.

Imaging tests have shown the outlines of his internal organs to be indistinct due to abnormal shadows. Originium granules have been detected in his circulatory system, confirming his to be infected with Oripathy.

[Cell-Originium Fusion Rate] 5%

Few crystals can be seen on the body.

[Blood-Crystal Density] 0.23u/L

Operator Arene is receiving long-term treatment. His condition is very stable, and shows no sign of worsening so far.

In Laterano’s current laws, there are extremely clear regulations providing strict and detailed stipulations towards citizens after they are infected with Oripathy.

When a citizen of Laterano is infected with Oripathy, their civil rights will still be protected. However, except under special circumstances, the infected person is usually not allowed to live or stay in the territory of Laterano. In fact, compared to the harsh regulations regarding the disposal of the infected in many other countries and territories, Laterano deciding to exile their infected is undoubtedly quite mild of an option. Nevertheless, for many Laterans, infection entails they must stay away from their homeland forever; for the rest of their lives, they will never be able to set foot on the land that raised them ever again. This is still an unbearable situation for most Laterans.

Operator Arene went to Leithanien a few years ago, after being infected with Oripathy, to study. The hometown he is unable to return to, could have already become nothing but a vague memory since long ago.

Most of the time, the people’s deepest impression of these halo-bearing Sanktas would be that they are inseparable from their beloved guns. The connection between the Sankta and their guns have become so ingrained in the eyes of the public that it is difficult to separate the two. Even if they are not able to hold guns for special reasons, many Sankta will still settle for the second best, and choose to carry long-range shooting weapons such as crossbows.

Definitely, this impression under most circumstances is correct, but occasionally there are some exceptions. Operator Arene is one of the few Sankta operators in Rhodes Island who does not use guns. Instead, he uses Originium Arts as his main method of attack.

The Originium Arts mastered by Operator Arene are quite special. Upon usage, the accompanying special effects are toxicity, decomposition, and corrosion. This results in him staying away from others to avoid unnecessary risks. The impression left by his Arts is very similar to Arene himself - beautiful and dangerous, yet keeping him at arm’s length and one should take precautions if one wishes to approach.

Due to the daily use of his Originium Arts, Arene’s body often has a light fragrance. According to his wishes, this light fragrance can be very harmless or turned into a deadly toxin at a critical moment.

Operator Arene was accompanied by the Notarial Hall’s executor when arriving at Rhodes Island.

According to the colleagues of the operator Executor who escorted him, both of Arene’s parents were professional Laterano gun researchers. Due to the nature of their professions, the both of them had been involved in various incidents related to Laterano guns. For this reason, when Arene contracted Oripathy a few years ago, his parents did not try to let him be at their side. And they chose to send him to the faraway Leithanien, to let their only son be as far away from danger as possible.

But in a recent heist conspiracy targeting Laterano gun technology, both of them unfortunately passed away. The will they left behind had brought Arene much trouble-- Most people would think that after passing away, the parents would leave everything secret and precious to their children without reservation. But in actuality, the only wish of Arene’s parents, was that their only son could live his days peacefully. Regarding their research, naturally there will be Laterano departments that are more suited to deal with it.

Even though the current storm has been mostly dealt with by Operator Arene’s plan, the remaining risk makes it imperative that this executor must escort this young master with a temper all the way, to seek the help of his colleagues. And he will leave temporarily, to resolve some ‘cleaning up problems of troublesome aftermath’.

When Arene was young, his parents were busy from work and rarely had opportunities to spend time with their child. This made Arene spend most of his childhood alone at home. It is difficult for young children to understand the passion that their parents put into work. To the young Arene, it was guns that took away the attention from his parents that was meant for him. This caused his very complicated attitude towards the guardian guns that most Sankta children long for. And because he contracted Oripathy from an accident, Arene has completely lost the chance to own his own guardian gun.

Maybe it was due to leaving Laterano early, Arene seems to be distant when interacting with some of our Laterano operators. Conversely, he interacts more with operators from Leithanien. An example is Operator Eyjafjalla. The two of them even chose to attend the same course by a famous professor at a university. It can be barely said that they are classmates.

Before Operator Arene joined us, we’ve already discovered that, perhaps due to the circumstances of his upbringing, that the youth lacks restraint and has a casual demeanour.

At first, no one saw this as a pressing issue, considering the already complicated staff composition of Rhodes Island, accepting even the free-spirited Sarkaz mercenaries into its roster. Thus, some of the youth’s statements and actions, such as playing tricks on the other operators, or the slightly crueler attitude which he shows towards the enemies, would not be considered an issue at all in most people’s eyes.

But, there was once when Arene captured and brought back an enemy during a certain operation. Using a tone that was only half-joking, he expressed his wish of using the captive to practice his new Originium Arts on. That was when we clearly realized, towards operators who are still in the stage of growing, giving them free reign might not be a good idea. This sensitive and difficult Sankta youth should not be left to his own devices again, Operator Arene truly requires good guidance and teaching that will not bore him at the same time.

Promotion Record

Upgrade to Elite LV2.

This teenager calls you a teacher.

However, both of you know that he does not mean it sincerely.

What about now?

Perhaps you can really teach him something. After all, he is still learning, and he needs someone to guide him onto the path he wants to take.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant All the files have been organized, there shouldn’t be any more work today. How about we discuss the last battle, Teacher?
Talk 1 When I cast my spells, it’s best for you to stay away… You’re not leaving? Do whatever you want then.
Talk 2 You want to know why I call you, Teacher? Because I can gain knowledge when I stay by your side, such as battle formations and how to command, as well as others… Aside from these, I have no need for other reasons.
Talk 3 Oh, this is for you, I think it’s some sort of dessert. No need to thank me, it was from someone else and I have no interest in it.
Talk after Promotion 1 It’s strange for a Sankta to use a staff? Don’t be influenced by those guys who only know how to shoot away all day and rely on violence to resolve everything. I don’t like guns, and not every Sankta will choose to use them as weapons.
Talk after Promotion 2 Instead of sharing a secret, it is better to exchange two secrets between each other. This way, it will be a balanced and secure exchange. So, if you want to know my secret, think about what you’d want to disclose to me, Teacher.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 There are no Infected in Laterano. Once a Sankta is infected, they will be exiled. However, these Infected still belong to Laterano and enjoy the protection it can provide… It’s just that they will never be able to set foot on their homeland again.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 My parents’ will left me a little trouble and it took me a lot of effort to resolve it. If it wasn’t for that stubborn executor from the Notary Hall, things would have gone smoother… Hmph, forget it. Anyway, it’s still within my considerations.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 This battle, I want to capture a few enemies to test my new spells on. I can’t? ...Okay, okay. It’s a pity, but if Teacher prevents it, I’ll forget it this time. Huh? I can’t do that either next time? You’re so strict, Teacher.
Idle Are you asleep? People who fall asleep at work will get their faces drawn on... I’m joking, I know you’re awake.
Onboard My codename is Arene, from today onwards I will officially be affiliated here. So you’re the Doctor... Then, let’s get along well, “Teacher”.
Watching Battle Record Tactical studies seem interesting.
Promotion 1 It seems to be no different from before, or are you going to teach me some secret tactics, Professor?
Promotion 2 Professor, are you purposely trying to test me? All right, it just so happens I’ve gotten a little excited. Then, no matter what happens next, it’ll be a secret between the two of us only.
Added to Squad Understood, we’ll proceed as you planned.
Appointed as Squad Leader This is a real battlefield? All right, let me think of the best formation...
Depart As long as we can achieve the goal, it doesn’t matter if the process is a little messy, right?
Begin Operation Welcome, I have been waiting.
Selecting Operator 1 Is it my turn?
Selecting Operator 2 Don’t be impatient.
Deployment 1 This isn’t a bad position
Deployment 2 I can do anything, right?
In Battle 1 I’ve already warned all of you.
In Battle 2 Does it hurt?
In Battle 3 Tell me, what do you feel now?
In Battle 4 Nice screaming.
4-star Result It went smoother than expected, I’d underestimated the professor.
3-star Result These results are as expected. There were no surprises, and was even a little bit boring.
Sub 3-star Result A few slipped through, should we chase after them? From a tactical point of view, I won’t recommend it.
Operation Failure The situation does not look good.... You don’t need me to tell you how to deploy us at this point, do you?
Assigned to Facility Can’t I be placed in a room closer to Professor?
Tap Hm?
Trust Tap Since there is some time, let’s finish reviewing the last mission, Professor.
Title Arknights.
Greeting That’s quite a sleepy look there, you can sleep a bit more, Professor.
