Operator Overview

"Friends? Who needs that. My motto in life is to become a bastard. It’s best that nobody likes me and I have no time to like others. Compared to this, wanna drink tonight? Let me know."

FIRE IN THE… shield?! Introducing the most unusual shield (for now) in Arknights, as well as its foulmouthed wielder, Asbestos! While this shield may look more like an unused character from “The Brave Little Toaster” than a piece of battle gear, rest assured that it’s more than capable of doing its job on the battlefield. So is Asbestos herself, a former explorer who has joined Rhodes Island as a 5 Arts DPS Defender with terrific Arts mitigation and Arts DPS capabilities.

In fact, not only does Asbestos mitigate Arts damage, she thrives on Arts damage. Her Talent, Moist Skin, increases her RES and generates SP whenever she gets hit by an Arts attack. Combined with her innate RES and high base HP, Asbestos can shrug off enemy Arts like a light spring rain. She’s not afraid to return fire with her own Arts damage either—as an Arts DPS Defender, Asbestos’ attacks deal Arts damage whenever one of her Skills is active. Her Skill 1, Safeguard Mode, blocks the next Arts attack Asbestos would take and reduces damage from subsequent Arts attacks taken while the Skill is active, making her even more durable against enemy Casters. But it’s Skill 2, Thermal Mode, that her opponents really need to watch out for, since it makes Asbestos’ attacks stronger (albeit slower), longer-range, and AoE. It also grants her a DEF buff, just for fun. Thermal Mode is also notable for its decent uptime, especially with the SP generation from Moist Skin.

Enemies have a lot to fear from Asbestos’ shield, but there are some chinks in her armor that can be an issue. Like other Arts DPS Defenders, Asbestos suffers from a high DP cost and mediocre attack speed. More uniquely, Asbestos also suffers when there is no Arts damage on the enemy team. Her Talent and Skill 1 become mostly useless if Asbestos isn’t taking Arts damage, and charging Thermal Mode takes a lot longer if her Talent isn’t generating SP. Even at her worst, however, Asbestos is still a powder keg who can Block-3, soak damage, and incinerate enemies en masse with that unholy combination of an oven, an ATM, and a vending machine that she calls a shield. What’s not to love, really?

Profile

Rim-Billiton’s slightly famous explorer. Recommended by Operator Magallan to receive treatment at Rhodes Island, and signed a contract after discussions to become an operator.

After professional training, she makes use of her handmade modified big shield to offer protection to other operators on the frontline.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.

Imaging results show that abnormal shadows can be seen in this operator’s organs. The circulation of Oripathy particles are abnormal and she has signs of Oripathy, confirming her as Infected.

[Cell-Originium Fusion Rate] 7%

This operator has few Oripathy crystals. And the disease has caused her eyeball to change colour. For now, there are no other symptoms other than the change in colour.

[Blood-Crystal Density] 0.22u/L

This operator has onset for a long time, and did not take any action towards her condition. Her symptoms should be very severe. But because she explores outside often, her physique is excellent and this alleviates the symptoms to some extent. For now, her condition is stabilised after receiving treatment from Rhodes Island, and requires regular treatment.

An explorer with a very bad attitude.

She would not give face to anyone. Can be said as my pace, but if one can tolerate her uncouth words, they will notice that she is a mature and powerful person.

She spends most of her time exploring, and appears rarely at public occasions at Rhodes Island. Sometimes she is seen dragging Doctor to go drinking.

Although she does not admit it, but very obviously, Asbestos is worthy of being called an explorer. Of course, she is indeed different from Magallan.

On one hand, Magallan is employed by Rhine Lab. Although she wants to explore the frozen lands, but it shows that in the results of her exploration, the core of it is still owned by Rhine Lab. And Magallan’s explorations has more planning and measurements.

And Absestos’ exploration is completely free as nobody asked her to do so or provide support. She just walks according to her own thoughts, and write her findings into travelogues and publishes them to magazines.

Actually, almost all active explorers on this land are like Magallan, who have companies or national backgrounds. Explorers who have no background like Asbestos are very rare. Because to be realistic, to walk around everywhere on this land, requires not just bravery, and also funds.

Although Asbestos is not willing to reveal her past, but it is likely not to be too bad. On why she decided to become an independent explorer, Rhodes Island does not plan to investigate deeply. Just to say, from this point, she is indeed very different from Magallan.

Regarding her own differing views on exploration – ‘for the excitement’, actually, when we mention explorers, we would have this kind of impression of them: pioneer, frontier, open paths, exploring the unknown etc., but this is not the only difference.

‘Opening a path for successors’ is usually the result, not the reason. Magallan is an example. Although she had such thoughts, but to go back to the cause, she became an explorer as she liked the tundra. In other words, those who take action for some kind of big meaning from the start, will usually give up halfway.

Then from the tracks and records that Asbestos leaves in various lands, it is undoubtedly that she is indeed an outstanding explorer.

Increase Trust to 150.

Different from most loner or socially inept operators, from Asbestos’ daily behaviour, it can be seen that she clearly knows how to do things. Actually, she totally knows how to get along with people. She is just not willing to do so.

She completely does not mind people hating her. Even if one lets her know being like this will make others hate her, she is very willing to do so. She knows that the way to really distance from others is not to reject rudely. It is to carefully avoid or answer coldly.

Instead of saying that she does not understand interpersonal relationships, might as well say that she sees interpersonal relationships too thoroughly. After seeing all these, she decided not to maintain this side.

Like Magallan, they know how to tolerate loneliness. But they are different in how a major motivation for Magallan is that others wait for her. And Asbestos does not need this kind of motivation, and she does not want to use this kind of way to cover anything. She just learnt how to absorb power from other things.

And no wonder many operators think she is very cool. Because she is willing to carry the burden of her choice.

Although we could not know what she went through due to her unwillingness, but from what was concluded, she willingly become a ‘bastard thing’ thing according to her words. And then continue until her embraces the end of her life.

We cannot determine if her way of life is correct, and do not wish for her to change. Just that on the side of Rhodes Island, we hope that operators can try to trust us. From this angle, Asbestos might the most difficult operator to deal with.

However, with Doctors unwavering effort, she is at least willing to view Rhodes Island as a company behind her today. It is considered as development.

According to Asbestos’ own descriptions, her Oripathy was contracted when she went into an area with a lot of Originium.

When knowing the possibility of infection while going on and getting infected, from some angle it can only be seen as she deserves it. But as the previous archives said, Asbestos’ strength was that she could always pay the price for her decisions. She embraced this fact, so nobody can blame her at all.

Of course, the life of an explorer has given her some convenience for her choices. After all, she seldom have contact with people besides replenishing supplies.

Due to how Asbestos’ actions actually do not affect other people, the biggest victims may be those who try to establish good relationships, such as Doctor and some operators. Therefore, Rhodes Island also do not interfere with the operator’s private life.

But it shows that just like how she has beliefs with her own way of living, Rhodes Island has its own beliefs—We will never allow her to die like she wishes to.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant Spit it out, fart it out. I’m busy and don’t have time to answer you.
Talk 1 Eek! …You bastard, who allowed you to touch my tail? I’ll send you flying! Also, forget about the sound I made just now. If you don’t forget, I’ll physically force you to forget.
Talk 2 My door? You also know by looking, I made this myself, with many functions. I suggest you don’t anyhow touch it, you might die.
Talk 3 I have to say it, since Rhodes Island goes everywhere, following your paths to explore seems to be faster than my own travelling. Hmm, not bad, my opinion of you all have changed.
Talk after Promotion 1 Don’t pit me against Magallan. I am not some kind of explorer. I just run across this land to pursue excitement. To lay the path for others? I am not so noble.
Talk after Promotion 2 The more dangerous it is, the more I will go there. The crazier it is, the more I enjoy it. If it is not like this, then what meaning does life have?
Talk after Trust Increase 1 Magallan? I met this chipper little girl at the black forest (?), this was the noisiest exploration in my whole life. But this little girl has some standards indeed, this I acknowledge.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 Friends? Who needs that. My motto in life is to become a bastard. It’s best that nobody likes me and I have no time to like others. Compared to this, wanna drink tonight? Let me know.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 My illness? I know it’s pretty serious, but as long as it doesn’t trouble others, how I deal with it is up to me. My idea is simple. Dying on a journey isn’t bad. If you have the ability, you can try to rescue me then. All the best, Doctor, I don’t expect much from you.
Idle Asleep? Very good, then let me make some noise, haha.
Onboard Although I am out exploring for at least half of the time in a year, but I want the normal salary, and accommodation. You want an employee like this? … You want? Huh? Tch, you’re crazy.
