Operator Overview

"You also know that your previous environmental cleanliness evaluation scores weren’t very high, right? If you don’t turn things around, Doctor, you’ll be on the business end of the Rhodes Island sanitation crane. Phew, I’ll help you take care of these for now, so make sure you clean up the rest in your free time."

"Folinic acid" is a medication that can help combat the effects of toxins, anemia, and even some cancers. Operator Folinic took this medication as her codename because it was the first answer she got wrong on a test when she was being taught medicine by Dr. Kal’tsit. Memories of her troubled past keep her awake at night unless she throws herself, heart and soul, into her work, and so her codename is a constant reminder of what she’s fighting for as a 5* ST Medic in Rhodes Island. And we do mean “fighting for”: Folinic is the first Medic in Arknights who can also attack enemies!

The first hint of Folinic’s steely will is her E1 Talent, Drug Inhibition Technique, which automatically gives her the Status Resistance buff. Once promoted to E2, it also reduces the damage Folinic takes from environmental effects like lava eruptions. Yes, that’s right: Folinic is so hardcore that a volcano erupting is not enough to distract her. Her Skill 1, Max-Dosage Infusion, dramatically increases her attack range and ATK with good uptime, which is a huge boon for a healer. However, her Skill 2 is what makes her stand out: Compound Drug Shell turns Folinic’s regular heals into missiles that deal Arts damage to nearby enemies and heal nearby allies. She will prioritize attacking enemies, but will target friendlies if no enemies are in range.

Having a single Operator who can both attack and heal is pretty tempting, but Folinic isn’t without flaws. First off, her DP cost is very high. Secondly, her ATK is low, especially compared to Casters, so the damage she actually deals with Compound Drug Shell isn’t the most impressive. Finally, because Compound Drug Shell prioritizes enemies rather than allies, the Skill may ignore an ally that needs healing in favor of attacking an enemy in the other direction. On the other hand, having the choice to heal or damage opens Folinic up for strategies that most other Operators simply can’t match. If you like versatility in your Operator pool, Folinic might be just what the doctor ordered.

Profile

A young student of Dr. Kal’tsit and an excellent medic operator, Folinic officially became involved in field medical missions after a half-year of preparatory training.
Unlike conventional medics, Folinic actively looks for opportunities to attack the enemy. The unique configuration of drug compounds she carries on here indicates that she is no ordinary medic on the battlefield.
She is a true battlefield medic.

Clinical Analysis

Folinic is Kal’tsit’s student. Of course, all medic operators have more or less received Kal’tsit’s guidance as long as they are involved in medical tasks or experiments; from this perspective, they are all Kal’tsit’s students. But Folinic is special. After Kal’tsit gave her passing marks on her Medic Operator certification, Folinic asked her to give her something similar to a certificate of completion. After Kal'tsit accepted the request, Folinic took it and placed it in the most conspicuous location in her dorm. Over the course of Folinic’s two years of study, Kal’tsit has been personally involved in every one of her course subjects and research projects. In fact, very few people can withstand that degree of academic pressure. Just imagine that one of the heads of Rhodes Island is paying close attention to your academic situation, asking about each of your exams and asking why you got certain questions wrong - yes, most people would find that terrifying. But not Folinic. Rather, she seems to be a naturally good student: earnest, meticulous, and attentive to detail. Of course, she would not know that these excellent qualities would one day cause trouble to others.

Many operators who came to see Folinic did not have particularly serious illnesses, and many of them simply wanted to tune-up some sub-clinical maladies - to which Folinic would suggest for them to have a healthy lifestyle. But in fact, what most operators want from medics is just a convenient method to feel better, and not all operators have the luxury of emulating Folinic’s lifestyle, namely getting up at 6 every morning and being in bed by 9, running around the deck for an hour every morning, then showering and eating before heading to work. Not to mention, Folinic also doesn’t touch tobacco or alcohol, doesn’t party, only socializes as necessary, and spends the rest of her time in a research lab, clinic, or library to improve herself. Only on weekends does she take a day to satisfy her interests in hunting. For most operators, such a spartan lifestyle is... out of the question.
But what is behind this borderline ascetic way of life? Does Folinic really do all this so that she can get a sound night of sleep? According to some operators who have worked with Folinic, “her present must be kept busy to the brim, or she will relapse to the terrible events of the past.” Specifically, “if she doesn’t exhaust herself during the day, she won’t be able to sleep at night. ”

Folinic studied first to become a researcher rather than an operator. Though she had an interest in hunting and was capable of conducting a hunt in the wild and returning safely, she still had too much to learn as a combat operator. After the Chernobog incident, Folinic made a request to Kal'tsit in hopes that she could make the preparations to transition into a combat operator as quickly as possible, or at least, that Kal'tsit would allow her to join the battlefield as a combat medic or provisional physician. After Folinic took her physical fitness evaluation, Kal'tsit agreed to her request and had Folinic join the reserve operator training camp, where she trained with the other reserve operators. After half a year, Folinic completed her preparatory training and officially joined Rhodes Island’s outpost operation team. Folinic considered many ways she could offer her support; she could try to become a sniper, or she could balance her work as a medic and guard; but in the end, she decided to become a combat medic and continue to prioritize medical assistance. However, in her half-year of combat training, she realized that most medics were quite frail and had no combat capabilities once they lost the protection of their comrades. To overcome this, Folinic used her pharmacological knowledge to carefully formulate a number of reagents commonly found in readily-available drugs to treat external injuries. With minor modifications such as increasing the dosage or mixing in different compounds, these drugs could become potent toxins that could incapacitate targets in a very short time. She has stepped out onto the battlefield many times and incapacitated many enemies. We don’t know how she feels about her new role as someone who is supposed to do no harm, but when she’s facing an enemy, her anger is evident enough to anyone who sees her.

Folinic is from Ursus, but also carries with her an unabashed hatred of Ursus. Her anger and resentment are not directed at individuals, but rather at the vast political entity that is the “Ursus Empire.” As a Feline living in Ursus, Folinic used to live under abhorrent conditions, so bad that all she could do was pursue a single full meal each day. After she followed her mother to Chernobog due to her job, Folinic naively thought that she was about to enjoy a better life. After all, her life was secure, she had met many people and among them, many were willing to reach out to her or teach her. Kal'tsit was one of those people. Subsequently, she said to her mother on just another ordinary day, “I’ll wait until you’re back to cook dinner.” But on that day, everything disappeared - her family and her friends, all gone without a trace. Only Kal'tsit, her mentor and the woman who would effectively become her only relative, rescued her from peril and entrusted her to an ordinary family in Chernobog. From sparse evidence and clues, Folinic pieced together the real cause of her mother’s death - Ursus. From that point on, she began to dig deeper, to learn, recognize, understand, and internalize every aspect of what kind of country Ursus is, and each bit of knowledge only further fanned the flames of her anger. Finally, right before Reunion made their move when Folinic was about to finish her studies, she met with Kal'tsit once more and expressed her desire to follow her. Even though Folinic was grateful towards her adoptive parents, she realized that she could never forgive the Ursus Empire to the point where she did not want to spend another second within its confines. Now, if she could call any place home, she would definitely say:
“My home will always be wherever Dr. Kal'tsit is. ”

Talk 1 Have you experienced any bodily discomfort recently? Umm, dry skin, err, um, stiff shoulders, dry eyeballs, hair loss, fatigue? ...Very good, just an old problem then, nothing serious. As long as you start exercising, these problems should go away in no time.
Talk 2 Life in the Medical Department is just daily meetings, visits around the Island, learning the operators’ physical conditions, and developing new drugs. Never anything fresh and exciting.
Talk 3 Mother, no matter where you are, please watch over me.
Talk after Promotion 1 Thanks for always taking care of us medics. I feel so much less anxiety while working, and am very happy. Of course, there are troublesome things to deal with as well, for example, when Blaze comes back, her body is always covered in blood. Does she know how hard it is to clean up those bodily fluids?
Talk after Promotion 2 How many times have I told you, don’t stay up late, and don’t overeat! You just won’t listen, right? How are you going to take care of other peoples’ health then? You might as well spend the rest of your life in that chair then!! ......I’m sorry, I need to go calm down first.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 I never quite know what Dr. Kal'tsit is thinking. Has she always been that... unique? I hope I can catch up to her one day, even if it’s in just one area.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 As long as the wicked can be punished, what’s a little bit of criticism? I don’t mind spilling these poisons on my enemies. They deserve it.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 The word “Ursus” only gives me pain. I don’t want to hear it, not again for the rest of my life. But it is a giant, and its voice is deafening. And I’m the only it’s going to drive mad.
Idle You also know that your previous environmental cleanliness evaluation scores weren’t very high, right? If you don’t turn things around, Doctor, you’ll be on the business end of the Rhodes Island sanitation crane. Phew, I’ll help you take care of these for now, so make sure you clean up the rest in your free time.
