Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Archetype: Does not attack normally. Only attacks when Skills are active, dealing AoE Artsl damage to all enemies in range. Massively increased DEF (+200%) & RES (+20) when not attacking (Skill is not active)
+ Extremely high DEF while a skill is not active allows her to shrug off most ranged physical damage
+ S2: The Obelisk that she summons has 5000 HP and over 500 DEF at E2, so it can soak a large amount of damage, blocks 3 enemies and doesn't use a deploy slot.
+ S2: provides some crowd control when her obelisk is summoned, as it stuns nearby enemies
- Doesn't attack when Skills aren't active, so she is on the low side for consistent DPS and has a very small attack range

Operator Overview

Beeswax came to Rhodes Island looking for a relative who had long ago left home to wander the world. This relative is a Rhodes Island Operator and is currently deployed on a long-term undercover mission—at first, Beeswax was depressed to hear this, but she soon perked up when it occurred to her that she could do the same. And so it was that Rhodes Island recruited its first 5* Modal Caster, a fascinating young woman with incredible powers of damage mitigation and enemy Blocking.

Many Operators are defined by their Traits, but few as much as Beeswax. Her Trait allows her to attack all enemies in her attack range, but only when one of her Skills is active. In return, it massively increases her DEF (+200%) and RES (+20) when a skill isn’t active. Don’t be fooled by her unimpressive base DEF compared to Defenders and Guards; with her Trait active, Beeswax has DEF on par with multiple Defenders. Her survivability is enhanced by her Talent, Shambhala's Sanctuary, which causes Beeswax to regenerate HP at an insane rate--though, like her DEF boost, it only activates while her Skills are not active.

We’ve mentioned Beeswax’s Skills a few times now, so what do they actually do? Her Skill 1, Growing Sandstorm, buffs her ATK and increases her already-wide attack range even further. This Skill has great uptime, and between Beeswax’s high base ATK, Arts damage, and AoE attacks, she can sweep through enemies quite satisfactorily. For a more defensive angle, turn to her Skill 2, Guardian Obelisk, which causes a massive obelisk to erupt from a ground square within Beeswax’s range. Enemies in the area take massive Arts damage and are Stunned, and the obelisk remains afterwards for the duration of the Skill, Blocking 3 enemies and absorbing attacks. Of course, Beeswax will attack for the duration of the Skill as well.

Beeswax would be the first to admit that she’s not perfect. Her DP cost is a little high, and her ASPD is a little slow considering that she can only attack while her Skills are active. The temporary nature of her obelisk can also be a hassle in contrast to deploying a reliable Defender (although the obelisk does not take a deployment slot). These drawbacks are very real, but they don’t detract from Beeswax’s value as a steel wall who can be deployed on ranged grids. She’s perfect for drawing aggro from ranged enemies (Faust, anyone?) or for soaking damage on Challenge stages where ground Operators are banned. Bringing AoE Arts damage and a free Block-3 obelisk is just icing on the cake. Shielded by her unshakeable confidence and the protection of her homeland, Beeswax is an Operator to look out for.

Skill Discussion

  • Modifiers when Skills aren't active are: +200% DEF and +20 RES
  • S2: Full stats and info for the Obelisk Summons can be found here.
  • S2: Obelisk will target an enemy using normal signal-target rules.
  • S2: If no enemies are in range, the Obelisk will deploy on a random tile in range.
  • S2: The Obelisk cannot deploy on grids that forbid Operator deployment

From Mooncell:

  • S2: When there is no deployable grid within range, the Skill can be activated, but the Obelisk will not be summoned
  • S2: When Beeswax leaves the field, the Obelisk will as well.

Profile

Operator Beeswax, a member of an ancient tribe from the depths of the deserts of Sargon, contacted us of her own initiative and asked to board the ship in order to locate someone. After learning that the person of interest will not be returning to the ship for the time being, Miss Beeswax has applied to join and travel with Rhodes Island, waiting for the time she can reunite with relative.
Beeswax has passed the entrance examination and has been given the official Operator status, and now serves as a Caster for Rhodes Island. This will be the first stop in her lengthy journey of discovery.

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 Beeswax has no signs of Originium infections.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.11u/L
Operator Beeswax seldom comes in contact with Originium in her living environment.

Although coming into contact with Originium is inevitable through the course of using Originium Arts, not only has she not fallen ill, but she even seems to be quite healthy - healthier than most of us, in fact. Have you seen the color and sheen of her horns? I could tell at a glance that little girl has nothing wrong with her!

Miss Beeswax made no attempts to hide her purpose for seeking out Rhodes Island. In fact, she was rather candid throughout the entire meeting, and this straightforward demeanor was consistent with the experiences she had described. In front of us was a young woman who had stepped away from home for the first time, without a deceptive bone in her body or a reason to be wary of others.
According to her statement, Miss Beeswax contacted Rhodes Island in order to find a blood relative who had left the tribe first on a journey. After verification, we found that her relative indeed is an active operator, and belongs to one of our affiliated departments. However, that individual is currently on a secret mission and cannot return to the landship any time soon.
Upon hearing this, Beeswax was visibly dejected. This young Caprinae from the golden sands does not usually display many expressions, but when her shoulders and eyelids droop, one can see subtle hints of the sense of loss she undoubtedly feels. Fortunately, these depressive bouts rarely last long, and she quickly regains her vitality.
At this time, Miss Beeswax made the first important decision since leaving her home to embark on this journey.
She decided to become a part of Rhodes Island.

Operator Beeswax cherishes her two horns greatly, and almost all operators who’ve talked to her are aware of this.
Among Caprinae, Forte, and other horned races, the horns are a very important part of one’s appearance. Akin to the booming and developing beauty industry here, horn care services arose to meet the demand and are well-received. However, even among the operators who are more concerned about their image, very few will make a conscious effort to focus on their appearance. Operators, like Beeswax, who pay close attention their appearance to the point of mastering skills relevant to those interests are among the minority.
Every day, Beeswax sets aside a bit of time to maintain her large, curved horns. This maintenance process usually involves multiple steps such as wiping them down with a fine cloth, applying essential oils, soft brush care, and polish. Beeswax always completes each step meticulously, ensuring that nothing is omitted. Through her persistent effort, her horns have achieved a remarkable state of lustre, shape, and hardness.
Through our inquiries with other Caprinae operators, we have established that even by Caprinae standards, Beeswax’s horns are magnificent, a rare and beautiful sight to behold.
After finishing her daily care, Beeswax often provides help to operators who need it, making her very popular within certain small circles.

The heart of the Sargon desert is difficult to traverse, and even experienced Messengers find it difficult to reach the deepest portions. In Beeswax's tribe, it is not unusual for young members of the tribe to go on journeys to the outside world and bring back what they see. Because these journeys have become traditions in their own rights, this particular tribe is unlike many others in that it does not totally reject novel things from the outside.
In addition to these journeys, one or two veteran Messengers may visit each year at certain times to bring the latest news to clan members, including the most recent music magazines.
Beeswax does not appear to be someone who is incredibly shrewd; rather, she is straightforward and easy to understand. She loves music as well. When she left home, she brought with her a number of magazines issued by the Music Society, and these new publications became quite popular among the Caster teams. Even Beeswax herself quick integrated, smoothly establishing good relationships with the other operators.
Though Beeswax doesn’t talk much, is quiet most of the time, and tends to lose her train of thought, by no means is she simple-minded. In choosing to officially become an Operator of Rhodes Island, Beeswax did not rush to her decision, but had to weigh a variety of considerations.
The fact that she chose to stay to wait for her relative, while certainly her primary reason, is only one of several considerations. After a bit of inquiry, we determined that Beeswax believes that her time at Rhodes Island will serve as valuable experience to help her pass her tribe’s rites of passage to adulthood— or rather, she sees working with Rhodes Island as one rung of that trial.
After comprehensive deliberation, we also saw no reason to deny the participation of a talented and powerful Caster. On one hand, the addition of Beeswax is beneficial to us. On the other hand, we believe that such an option will help Beeswax as well, and Rhodes Island will be able to provide her with many further opportunities to understand this land.

As an addendum, the young Caprinae waited for several months before picking out her official code name. After writing to her hometown for help, she finally decided on the name she now uses.

The heart of Sargon is a vast region with a harsh environment, home to a large number of small and medium-sized tribes. Among them, some ancient tribes lack means of communicating with the outside world, and often retain their unique customs and traditions. Although the Caprinae tribe to which Beeswax belongs does not fall under this category, it still retains its customs despite regular contact with the outside world.
Though many view the so-called “pagan” beliefs of these tribes as little more than barbaric vestiges of a primitive legacy, there are a few researchers who have been trying to ascertain the true source of these ancient beliefs.
Operator Beeswax is not shy about sharing her beliefs. From her descriptions, she tends to use more abstract expressions, trying to depict a conceptual existence rather than a physical object of worship with an actual image. In fact, even though Beeswax claimed to have received the blessings of the gods, she admitted that she had frankly never directly seen these gods.

Promotion Record

Upgrade to Elite LV2.
Every operator has their own journey, and in this case, Rhodes Island is just the first step of Beeswax’s journey, not the end.
We may be in each others’ company for the time being, like-minded and hand-in-hand, but we will all find our own direction one day. There will come a day when we go our separate ways.
No two roads completely overlap; while they may intersect at times, an intersection is just that.

But do remember that no matter where we go, her blessings will always follow us.

Appointed as Assistant Doctor, you’ll be working hard today? Then, I’ll stay with you. If you slack off, then I’ll use this stick... Like this... and give you a smack on the head. Bonk, bonk.
Talk 1 Beeswax, Beeswax, Beeswax... Mm, okay. I should get used to it after reading it a few more times. Oh, Doctor, do you need something? I’m just trying to get used to hearing my code name... so I don’t overreact and get made fun of when others call me.
Talk 2 This bug... Mister Midnight seemed very scared of it and jumped up into the air as soon as he saw it, so I helped him catch it. But, where should we put it now... Um, Doctor, why are you backing away?
Talk 3 My clothes are a bit big, so I feel at ease when drape over my body. I like that sensation. But, sometimes, I’ll accidentally step on them— Uu, uwah, ahh...! ...Fweh, I tripped again... Ow...

Haven’t heard of any of them?

The faceless gods will protect us, no matter where we go, whether or not we remember them......
Talk after Trust Increase 1 Leaving the tribe and traveling to other city-states and countries is a trial of passage that all the members of our tribe must go through. Only by successfully passing it can one become a full-fledged adult like my sister. Um, Doctor, you don’t think I’ll run into any problems, right?
Talk after Trust Increase 2 Hehe, my horns are big and pretty, right? There aren’t many people in the tribe whose horns can compare to mine! The secret to maintaining them is to apply essential oils once a day, gently massage them with a soft brush— W-wait, doctor, I haven’t finished today’s maintenance yet, you can’t just touch them like that!
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Doctor, please come here. Mm, okay, close your eyes, and let me touch your forehead. The scorching sun, the raging storm, and waves of golden sand washing across the desert. The gods set foot upon the land where we were nurtured, and bestowed our tribe with their blessings.

Promotion 2 Doctor, perhaps the path that lies ahead for Rhodes Island is destined to be long and difficult, but please remember, the gods’ decrees and my blessings... will always be with you.

Sub 3-star Result Ooh, they got away! Mm... but I guess that’s fine?
Operation Failure We can’t do this anymore, Doctor. I’ll hold the enemies back, so please escape!
