Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Archetype: Regular attacks deal damage twice
+ Talent: Normal attacks have a chance to recover 1 additional SP
+ S2: Very high AOE damage on drones
+ Good SP cost on Skills for a burst damage Guard
- Specializes in clearing groups of flying enemies with Skills, but needs to attack ground units to charge the Skills.
- Low DEF and no damage mitigation can be a problem since she needs to be on the front line to attack to charge her Skills

Operator Overview

In exchange for Oripathy treatment, Cutter has signed on to work with Rhodes Island. She may be a disaster in the kitchen, but as a 4* Dualstrike Guard, Cutter has quite a bit of talent at DPS, particularly against aerial units.

Cutter specializes in quickly charging her Skills, which have low SP costs and charge when she attacks an enemy. Her Trait causes her to strike twice with each attack, and her E1 Talent, Photoetched Marks, gives each hit a chance to recover an extra SP. This Talent can speedily charge Cutter’s Skill 1, Redshift, which deals four hits in an extended range to random enemies in front of her, including aerial enemies. Her Skill 2, Crimson Crescent, is only slightly more expensive, and it damages multiple enemies in a large area around Cutter, with twice the ATK scaling against flying targets. Considering she has surprisingly high ATK for a Dualstrike Guard, Cutter can output a lot of damage in a short time, and her ranged Skills allow her to shut down flying enemies more easily than most ground-based Operators--very useful in Challenge stages where Snipers or other ranged units are banned.

That being said, Cutter’s high DP cost (typical of Dualstrike Guards) and the random nature of her damage can be drawbacks. Her Talent has a fairly low activation chance and you can’t choose targets for her Skills, so she’s not the most reliable answer for aerial units on a regular basis. Nevertheless, Cutter’s Skill-centric playstyle gives her a lot of potential for Doctors to utilize on the battlefield. Don’t sell her short because of her weaknesses… or because she accidentally blew up the kitchen once or twice.

Notes on S1 from Mooncell (Translated by Laulicon)

  • Can be activated when no targets are in range. A target selection will be made when the skill is activated, and should the selection fail the skill will forcibly end and all skill points will be refunded.
  • The 4 throwing knives are thrown consecutively, and a random target selection will be made each time.

Profile

Cutter, a mercenary who has long been active in the fringes of Columbia’s controlled territories, has come seeking medical treatment. She has shown excellent close-quarters combat capabilities across several operations.
She currently serves in one of Rhodes Island’s Guard squads, having participated in many VIP escort jobs among others.

Operator Cutter comes from a rural area in southwestern Columbia. According to our investigation, this area was often affected by Catastrophes, rendering the land barren and unproductive. Unable to make a living or work the land, many locals have no choice but to provide their labor to prospective employers, and with high enough compensation, are willing to do almost anything. The tenuous grasp of Columbian authorities over this remote region has led to a chronic lack of proper policing, resulting in this area gaining notoriety as a chaotic and lawless land.
Cutter, who grew up under such an environment, chose to stake out her own lot in life to support herself like so many of her peers; but unlike many, she also established a set of rules to abide by, dictating what she would and would not do.

Increase Trust to 100.
On a normal day, this mercenary from a chaotic land is quite at ease and can even be described as being in a daze. This characteristic is particularly evident after she has spent some time basking in the sun, a state that couldn’t be more different from when she wields her blade on the battlefield.
In addition, it’s worth mentioning that Cutter also has a baffling fondness for cooking, given that her results are often far from satisfactory.
After a string of incidents such as accidentally eviscerating a cutting board, causing the fire alarm to go off after stewing unknown substances, and causing the toaster to explode, the Operators who frequently utilize the kitchen petitioned to restrict her access to the facility, resulting in her being banned.
Even those most empathetic to the dejected Cutter still unanimously praised the ban.

Archive File 3

Increase Trust to 150.
Through our investigation, we’ve determined the following to be Operator Cutter’s personal code of conduct:
1. Never kill innocents.
2. Never participate in fraud or the trafficking of persons.
3. If a bystander suffers losses to property during the task, then appropriate compensation must be paid afterwards.

As a result of these constraints, Cutter makes a lot less money than those who are far less skilled than she is, and this has complicated her living situation. Despite that, she never compromised or abandoned her code. One might surmise that this was a product of her chaotic environment, or perhaps due to a certain teacher she references in conversation.
According to Cutter, her teacher was a wandering swordsman who travelled the world. This teacher not only raised her after her parents died fighting on the streets, but also taught her how to wield a blade. Under this person’s tutelage, Cutter did not get swallowed by the lawlessness and wanton violence that claimed so many of her fellow villagers; instead, she became the principled mercenary that she is today.
Cutter’s teacher quietly left after confirming that she could be self-sufficient, only leaving behind the pendant that now hangs around her neck - a carved protective charm that she cherishes immensely.

[Classified Log]
After investigation, we found that the armed clash that took the lives of Cutter’s parents was caused by the interruption of a local gang’s illegal transactions. This damage to their interests triggered immediate retaliation against the interrupting party, dragging in many uninvolved residents. Many people were killed as a result, including Cutter’s parents.
Later eyewitness accounts from those who were present at the time testified that the actual instigators of the gang violence were not locals, but rather people they had never seen before.

Please exercise discretion in deciding whether or not to disclose the above records to Cutter.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant Excuse me, Doctor, am I on duty today... Huh? Umm, how’d my blade get stuck in the doorframe...
Talk 1 Back home, the soil gets more and more barren each day, and what we harvest isn’t enough to feed ourselves. Most people aren’t able to make a living, so their only option is to become mercenaries. They’ll do anything, as long as it pays.
Talk 2 Uhh, they said my blade was too dangerous and forbade me from going back into the kitchen. I just wanted to help, but, as soon as I tapped that cutting board with my blade, it split wide open... Well, um, should I pay for it?
Talk 3 Every time I bask in the sun, I can’t help but to get a bit sleepy. But don’t worry, before I’ve confirmed that it’s completely safe, I won’t actually fall... asleep... ZZZzzzzz...
Talk after Promotion 1 In my line of work, I have a set of principles that I follow: I don’t harm the innocent, and I don’t get bystanders involved... To be honest, it’s really hard.
Talk after Promotion 2 This necklace, I’m lending it to you, it’s a protective charm. No, I can’t give you my blade. When I’m not here, just use this.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 Doctor, I need you to look at me, and don’t move. Hey, I said not to move... Hm, hmm... Don’t worry, you’re not the kind of person who would use others to commit evil. I can tell.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 To be honest, I don’t really remember much from when I was little. My teacher raised me and taught me how to use a knife. He also told me that my parents got caught up in a fight and died because of it. When he found me, I was holding onto a knife and wouldn’t let go even if it was cutting into me.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Those who wield the blade will always pursue the duel, and those who kill will eventually become a notch on the blade of another. Perhaps one day, I will also find such an ending... and when that happens, I hope you’ll be there to witness it.
Idle I’m standing guard, so you can rest easy.
Onboard Cutter. Just an ordinary mercenary. I have Oripathy, so I plan to trade my abilities for some treatment. Hope this blade’s good enough to get things done for you... Mm, that’s about it.
Watching Battle Record Amazing! Didn’t know you could use a blade like that!
Promotion 1 Other than this blade, freedom’s the only treasure I have. If you’re willing to protect that, then I’ll listen to you.
Promotion 2 A mercenary’s blade isn’t some toy that’s never tasted blood before. Maybe one day, I’ll no longer be able to control it. But don’t worry, at least for now... it’ll work for you.
Added to Squad Got it. Joining the team.
Appointed as Squad Leader Understood. Can I select my own teammates then?
Depart Prepare yourself, and make sure not to get any innocents involved.
Begin Operation Hey, blade, you sharp enough?
Selecting Operator 1 Got it.
Selecting Operator 2 I can wait.
Deployment 1 The battlefield is the cemetery.
Deployment 2 Wielding a blade is all I need to do.

In Battle 2 Don’t look back.
In Battle 3 Look me in the eye.
In Battle 4 You’re too slow.
4-star Result Maybe one day, there’ll be something that my blade can’t cut. But that day isn’t today, and it certainly isn’t you.
3-star Result Phew... Everything done, just as specified in the contract. Need to take a look?
Sub 3-star Result Those who’ve lost the will to fight should not be my targets.
Operation Failure Go, Doctor, go as far as you can! I’ll... hold them back.
Assigned to Facility Finally, some sunlight... Ahh, so warm...
