Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Very cheap to Deploy with decent stats and high attack modifiers
= S1: Very high damage burst, but at an extremely low proc rate. Damage is mediocre without lucky procs.
= Talent: Reduced Deployment Cost and Re-deployment time, but Self-stun for 10 seconds on deployment.
= Duelist Guard Archetype
= More for memes/fun Operator than practical in combat, as they are too RNG reliant to be useful
- S2: 50% chance to stun every nearby ally for a long duration. It is very troll.

Operator Overview

A nonbinary character from an old Arknights fairy tale, mysteriously appearing in the modern day for reasons unknown! This small frame belies powers the likes of which you’ve never seen! Rhodes Island has been graced by the presence of this 4* Duelist Guard, and Conviction’s mythical powers of DPS and crowd-control will leave an impression that will never be forgotten!

Right from their first moment on the battlefield, Conviction makes a splash with the Safe Landing Talent, which decreases Conviction’s DP cost and redeployment time so that all Doctors can have them on the field as much as possible. Safe Landing does have the teensy downside of Stunning Conviction for 10 seconds after deployment, but it’s a small price to pay for having the legendary Conviction on your side! After all, their Skill 1 is Offensive Conviction, an automatic Skill that increases the damage of the next attack. There’s a large chance this Skill grants a small damage boost, but there’s also a small chance that this Skill will grant the largest ATK boost in Arknights! Yet even this pales in comparison to the game-changing power of the fast-charging Skill 2, Genesis. This explosive Skill rocks the fabric of space and time, dealing massive Arts damage to all nearby enemies and Silencing them to prevent their special abilities! There may also be a minor 50% chance that the Skill will backfire and Stun all nearby allies instead, but that just makes using Conviction more exciting! Obviously nothing could possibly tarnish the majesty of the great and powerful Conviction! Right?

…Right?

Okay, so Conviction is an April Fool’s joke Operator who probably shouldn’t be fielded in a serious fight. The unreliability can be a major issue, the self-Stun on deployment can be a major issue, lack of Potential buffs can be a major issue, and let’s not even talk about Genesis. However, as far as joke characters go, Conviction is better than you might think. Their stats are pretty good for rarity and archetype; their low DP cost is convenient; and the massive damage from Offensive Conviction is incredibly satisfying when it procs, especially against something like a Hateful Avenger. Conviction may not be the most efficient use of your Operator resources, but their wildly unpredictable fighting style can make them fun to use anyway!

Base Skill Analysis

Is Conviction worth promoting to E1 for the RIIC Base Skill?

  • Absolutely.  Crazy good buff at relatively cheap promotion cost.  Conviction might be a meme Operator in combat, but they are the real deal in the Base.

Profile

Conviction, also known as the Boxing Artist, is a figure from legends and historical stories, said to have been from the ancient country of Agamemnon (Present-day Minos, 1045-1080/1091-controlled territory).

[According to Legends]
Conviction has no fixed appearance. Based upon available historical records, there are few mentions of those called "Conviction," but one can clearly conclude that this name does not refer to any specific single person. In history books, descriptions of Conviction's race are not consistent, with the earliest records stating Conviction as from Minos. Despite these discrepancies, these records are all similar without exception in describing Conviction as beautiful in appearance, good at dancing, harboring a strong sense of justice, generally being skilled at a special type of boxing, and proficient with arts.
Unlike normal boxing techniques, Conviction's special technique weaves in Originium Arts. Often referred to as "Conviction Punch" in records, this special combat style is characterized by footwork akin to dance steps. According to the depiction on a mural, this is a type of assassination technique designed to strike in an unexpected way. Some of the attacks within this technique, when first launched, may appear to just be dance moves to observers. However, bystanders may also get hurt in the process.
The most details about Conviction in the historical record are said to come from a number of chapters from a certain story, and this is considered to be the most reliable known source despite slight discrepancies in the details.

From "The Way of Arts - Apocrypha of Conflict":
On the first year of the modern epoch, a group of artists established the ancient kingdom of "Agamem."
Among the artists of Agamem, a group of them rose to become the ruling class and in a bid to seize all the country's property, announced a national ban on the creation of high-end art and declared the tomato as the country's sole staple food.
The artists of the country soon were forced into a miserable existence, trying to sell inferior works of art in order to put tomatoes on the table.
One day, an artist stood up to challenge the unjust rule. On the first day of April, the artist convicted the seven rulers with a series of superb punches. As a result, Agamem was able to enjoy a long period of peace, and flourished as a paradise for artists.

"Agamem? Super Artist Wars? Only eating tomatoes? What a load of rubbish. Why not focus on the birth and life of Conviction? Does the person who wrote this book bear some ill will against Conviction's peerless power? If it was up to me, information other than the Conviction and Art won't be included! Quick, find the person who wrote this book! I shall convict them!"

[The Train Dilemma]
A large number of historical documents provide detailed accounts of Conviction's famous "train dilemma," a philosophical question which has been greatly discussed for many years. However, there is no indication that anything resembling a "train" or train-related technology existed in ancient Agamem, but the records clearly state that "trains" did in fact exist. This sheds some doubt upon the authenticity of the origins of the "train dilemma."
There is also a variant of the train dilemma involving trolleys, but electric trolleys were invented even later than trains were...

"Conviction's Justice" :
When Conviction brought judgment upon Agamem, seven criminals were seized for suppressing the development of art.
In order to punish them, Conviction tied six of them on the train tracks of an Durin train.
The last was posed an impossible problem, doomed to ponder this question forever while eating nothing but tomatoes.
To commemorate the artist who stood up in the face of injustice, the people of Agamem named this person "Conviction," and the problem was named the "train dilemma."
As a caution to future generations, people reminded themselves to exercise their arts and to never be picky eaters, lest they too be posed with the terrifying train dilemma.

"300 Philosophy Study Exercises" :
Conviction brought 7 convicted artists to a railroad that split off into a forked junction; five of the convicted artists are tied to one side of the tracks, while one was tied to the other track.
At this time, a Durin train is headed towards the junction and is about to run over the side where 5 convicted artists are tied down.
The last of the 7 convicted artists is not tied down, and there is a lever next to him. If he pulls the lever, the train will change course, only running over one person.
Considering the above situation, if you are the last convicted artist, should you pull the lever? (50 points available)

"What's wrong with eating tomatoes every day? I'd gladly do that anyway. The rest of you aren't down for that? Forget about becoming Conviction, you're not even good enough to be an ordinary artist. Now that's the true crime. Oh, that's right! I know a great way to help you find enlightenment - you just have to lie down on those tracks over there!"
"The train needs a Durin to operate, right? Wait, are you seriously asking why this matters? That's part of the art. Art, you understand? The kind of person operating the train, the brand of the train, what material the tracks are made of, the rope used to tie these people, and how many people are tied down to each rail - these all factor into the equation. Each of these small details determine whether or not the train rises to the standard of a dilemma - is that how you really see it? Well, don't blame me for what happens next! Take this, the second Conviction!"

[Records of Conviction's Challenge of Justice]
According to records, in order to ensure the survival of wholesome art and the proliferation of a just society, Conviction will issue sentences to those who seek to do evil, bear significant sins, or try to hamper the development of the arts - all in the name of justice. The number of techniques in "Conviction Punch" corresponds to the number of people who were sentenced by Conviction.
"Abridged History of Dance" :
Agamem's Way of the Righteous Fist shall be passed down forever.

"Legends of Righteousness - The Conviction Saga" :
In many folk tales, Conviction did not directly deliver sentences because the convicted party may have been innocent. As a result, Conviction would issue the train dilemma to test the party in question. Conviction would praise those who passed the test on having great talent in the arts, and encourage them to persevere in their pursuit of art until their works entered the annals of classics.
It is said that at first, artists that weren't main stream were outcasted; but over time, these artists rose to fame as talented judges of virtue. These are all related to Conviction.
Certain medical reports exist suggesting that only eating tomatoes for an extended period of time leads to nutritional imbalances.

"Who dares classify my Conviction Punch as a dance? And what is this about nutritional imbalances? Do I look scrawny to you? Hmph! Hmph! I bet you can't even follow my fist! An ordinary Operator's gonna get sent flying if they eat one of these! Wait, why are you trying to change the topic? If you can't answer my dilemma, that's fine, nothing to get ashamed about."
"Right, there's nothing to be ashamed about, because I'll convict you on the spot! If once doesn't do the trick, then I'll do it again until I beat the sin right out of you! We'll see what breaks first, your foolishness, or my revolutionary crime-busting skills!
"Eat this! Conviction... Genesis!!"

Appointed as Assistant Since you summoned me, you must be eager to feast your eyes upon my elegant dancing form, right? ...Uh, help move the luggage? I didn't come here to do manual labor!
Talk 1 You're such a weak and ineffectual leader! What's up with that? I'd convict you if not for the sorrowful tears Amiya would then shed.
Talk 2 You don't even know how to convict a criminal? Listen up, the art of conviction is an assassination technique created by the first Conviction through combining traditional dance moves with ancient fighting techniques! I am his third-generation successor!
Talk 3 Conviction is not some barbaric fighting technique. It is an artform through which beauty and ideals are poured through the fist and delivered straight into the heart! Now you know!
Talk after Promotion 1 This art is the crystallization of hard work and great insight. When people ignore the true value of art and use this sacred product as some sort of game, Conviction will descend to right all wrongs.
Talk after Promotion 2 If you don't even feel the overwhelming pressure radiating from my perfect, classic artwork-like image, then you do not deserve to be on the same team as your savior! Ughhh! Con! Viction!
Talk after Trust Increase 1 I'm actually someone infected with Oripathy, an incurable disease?! Curses... is this my destiny? Is this the fate of all who wield the Conviction Punch? Hey, why are you all looking away! I'm clearly telling you a sad story!
Talk after Trust Increase 2 You also wish to become Conviction? In that case, chew upon this question! "You're standing at a junction in a railroad, with a train full of Durin people approaching. The junction splits off into two tracks, one upon which several artists with meager artistic achievements are..."
Talk after Trust Increase 3 You don't even have the gumption to answer the easiest of Conviction's dilemmas! You have no artistic talent! Take this! Conviction - Second Style!
Idle ...Hoo! Hah! Wait, that's not right, that's not what's supposed to happen. Let's try this again...
Onboard I am Conviction. I shall use this name, with all the faith it entails, as my code name. You ask what my talents are? I am a master of the deadly and beautiful art of conviction! Need I say more?
Watching Battle Record An opportunity like this to become stronger is readily taken!
