Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Talent: When deployed, all 1* operators' Redeployment Time -75%. Additionally, for every 1* deployed, self ATK and DEF increased.
+ S2: Decent AOE burst that lowers enemy RES and can be used shortly after deployment
+ Some decent synergy with the new 1* Operator Thermal-EX so he can do more on-deploy AOE damage and [Fragile] debuting.
- 1* Operators are extremely situational, even with Chiave's Talent they are hard to justify bringing to more difficult maps.
- S2 has a fairly long CD after its initial use and it is awkward to save the skill for difficult enemies as its tied to his ability to generate DP for the team

Operator Overview

“There’s a saying from Yen that goes: ‘Seize the moment’. Heh, this is very suitable for me. Future? Let Aosta think about this kind of thing.”

From his time spent tinkering as an employee in a Siracusa garage, Chiave has learned a lot about robotics and how to modify technology. From his time as a three-way gang leader with fellow Operators Broca and Aosta, Chiave has learned… well, not much, to be honest. Other than dreaming up crazy new ideas for new kinds of machines, Chiave prefers to think as little as possible, charging forward into the future with relish and abandon. Now part of Rhodes Island, it’s no surprise that this wild-mannered mechanic works as a 5* Skill-DP-Recovery Vanguard—the first person running into every fight—who synergizes with the 1* Robot Operators of the organization.

The secret to Chiave’s success is that he never works alone. His Talent, Technical Expertise, gives him a sizable ATK and DEF boost for every 1* Operator currently deployed on the field and dramatically reduces their redeployment time. A lot of the value in the 1* Robots is the effects they have when deployed (Lancet-2’s healing, Castle-3’s buff, etc.) These effects are typically limited by a very long redeployment time, but with Chiave around, they become much more usable.

This is not to say that Chiave is incapable of fighting on his own—far from it. He has good ATK for a Skill-DP-Recovery Vanguard and the typical DP-generating Charge γ for his Skill 1. His Skill 2, Blazing Wire Stripper, is an AoE explosion that deals Arts damage, reduces the RES of its targets, and instantly generates DP for the team. Charge γ is more efficient for rapid DP gain, but Blazing Wire Stripper applies a valuable RES debuff and has some decent damage potential, especially with the ATK buff Chiave can receive from Technical Expertise.

If you’re not a big fan of the Robot Operators in Arknights, there's little reason to choose Chiave over other Vanguards. If you do like Rhodes Island’s Robots, however, then Chiave suddenly becomes much more attractive. Robots don’t take up deployment slots, so Chiave’s Talent is easy to utilize and the benefits can be quite large. Spam Castle-3’s melee Operator buff! Rain Thermal-EX’s explosions across the field! Dream big—that’s Chiave’s motto!

Skill Discussion

  • Redeployment reduction Talent stacks multiplicatively with SilverAsh's.

Notes from Mooncell:

  • When Chiave leaves the field, any Redeployment Time reductions that have already been applied will remain in effect.

Profile

Chiave, former employee of a mechanic shop in a small city in Siracusa, later became the leader of his own gang.
After a certain incident, he led two of his men to join Rhodes Island and is now active as a front-line attacker.

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 him to be infected with Oripathy.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 5%
Originium crystals are present on the surface of the body, but in small quantities. The disease progression has been effectively controlled.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.21u/L
Although condition is currently relatively stable, it may deteriorate due to late treatment.

This Vulpo is a man who always carries around a hearty smile.
'No respect for people or the law.' It is said that these words were used to describe his attitude when he first joined Rhodes Island and met Dr. Kal'tsit. He spent the rest of his first day in the infirmary.
He will do whatever pops up in his mind. Although what he does is often laughable, there seems to be some magic within him that compels others to join him on his absurd antics.

Compared with Broca’s hostility and Aosta’s caution, Chiave, as their leader, was basically the first one to get integrated into Rhodes Island. On his second day, he basically already was accustomed to the general mood around the ship.
According to his own account, he dropped out of school and worked as the employee of a mechanic shop in the city, of course privately participating in some local gang activities.
That is, until he met Aosta. The two struck up a congenial relationship and worked together, later rescuing Broca and recruiting him to join. The three moved together until they were rescued by a nearby Rhodes Island during a chase.

As a result of his experience working as a mechanic, Chiave is the best at modifying weapons among the three.
Unlike the impression his appearances give to other people, he is quite accomplished within his profession. Whether working directly on modern vehicles or souping them up, he maintains an impressive skillset. As an extension of his interests, he also has some knowledge in electrical appliances.
However, unlike Broca, though Chiave is generally well-liked among other operators, he is often described as 'having a bad rap.'
Because of his tendencies to push the boundaries in all aspects of life and work, he often adds truly head-scratching modifications to the things he’s working on. Even when working on other peoples’ things, he shows little regard for that and has caused some truly ridiculous outcomes. Now, everyone is a bit more cautious about handing their personal belongings over to him for retrofitting.

Increase Trust to 200.
Aosta’s terse evaluation of Chiave probably sums it up best — 'He’s not gonna live long like this.'
It must be pointed out that Chiave is not an extraordinarily strong man: he doesn’t possess profound strategic wisdom, nor does he have exceptional combat prowess. He is very ordinary in many respects, and the sum of his combat effectiveness can be regarded as average at best. He is prone to flights of fancy, and often does things half-heartedly. To be frank, it would not be surprising if he was found dead in a ditch on the side of the road one day.
However, this is what’s astounding about him.
Let’s do something a bit dramatic to illustrate the point— Everyone in the room will say 'Chiave? Oh, that arrogant guy.' But without fail, most people will smile and add another sentence — 'But that’s just the kind of person he is.' And some of these people will not hesitate to help him when they learn that he is in trouble. This is a good indicator of Chiave’s popularity. He always leaves a deep impression upon others that makes it impossible to truly hate him.
Of course, speaking from another angle, if he really was to suddenly leave us prematurely, most people would probably get over it pretty quickly, because 'that’s just the kind of person he is.'
That is the contradictory and fascinating person that Chiave is.
