Operator Overview

“Heavily armored enemies are SO scary...! Hah, just kidding!”

Franka is a 5★ Single Target Block 1 Guard whose scorching thermite blade penetrates all defenses.  She specializes in high damage output and Defense-ignoring capabilities.

Franka has extremely high Attack, giving her exceptional sustained DPS.  Her Talent, Thermite Blade, and her second Skill, Vorpal Edge, combine to give her fairly consistent Defense-ignoring damage, making her an excellent tank killer.  She can only block 1, but her job is typically to take down enemies quickly rather than delaying them.

Since armored enemies usually hit rather hard and her S2 has the drawback of reducing her own Defense to 0, Franka needs a lot of support to stay alive if she is required to block as well as kill them.  Thus, if you need a unit to block armored enemies, it’s usually better to go with a Defender who can survive their attacks. That being said, however, Franka’s sheer DPS output makes her an excellent Guard who scales well into end-game content.

Profile

Franka, biohazard protection and response specialist for Blacksteel Worldwide, is very experienced and proficient in VIP protection, raid, and combat support operations.
She is currently undergoing treatment for Oripathy at Rhodes Island and providing professional security as a Blacksteel Operator.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging test for this Operator showed blurry outline of internal organs with visible unusual dark spots. Unusually high concentration of Originium particles were present in her circulation, indicating signs of infection and confirming her as infected at this stage.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 9%
Operator Franka showed conspicuous symptoms of Oripathy.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.34u/L
Infection approaching mid-stage but currently not spreading, condition stable.

Increase Trust to 50.
Blacksteel, aka. Blacksteel Worldwide, is a contractor whose core service is providing private security services. Headquartered in Columbia, Blacksteel is now riding a crest thanks to the growing business influence of Columbia.
To combat the Originium infection crisis, Blacksteel set up a special unit known as the "Biochemical Protection Response Staff" (BPRS). Operator Franka is a member of this unit tasked with guaranteeing the safety of all Bio Department operations.
Unlike most Blacksteel specialists who are always serious to the point of being dour, Franka seems more light-hearted, progressive, and is even a bit of a prankster--her victims including both enemies and her own colleagues.
No matter the situation she faces, Franka is able to keep calm and persuade others to trust in her calculated words.
For a professional Operator, Franka submitted a relatively truthful personal profile and resume, as well as a standard cooperation agreement, voluntary treatment waiver, and other binding contracts. Based on that, Franka may be accorded the appropriate level of trust.

Increase Trust to 100.
Franka's combat style is often considered enigmatic and unpredictable, as befitting her peculiar personality. Rather than dealing the most damage, she focuses on making herself come off as "harmless".
Franka's weapon of choice are a rapier and a dagger. She favors a rapier forged from Originium that, when combined with her own Originium Arts, absorbs a huge amount of heat (while still retaining its shape). It is especially effective against targets in heavy metal armor. It is very easy to overlook her light gear and weapons, leading to a gross underestimation of her combat prowess.
On the other hand, the close-up melee style she prefers also can put her in peril. While she may be good enough to end the enemy before her life is threatened, to alleviate concerns, the head of the BPRS project teamed the smart but radical Franka with the level-headed Liskarm, making them a complementary duo in combat.

Increase Trust to 150.
As shown in the limited files provided by Blacksteel, Operator Franka contracted Oripathy during an escort mission for the BPRS Department (project designation and actual operation are both classified). Blacksteel used newly acquired intel to contact the little-known Rhodes Island Pharmaceuticals and arranged on-site treatment for Franka, also seizing the opportunity to reach several agreements with the company.
Franka's arrival filled a gap in experienced Operators for Rhodes Island, and she shows great interest in her new surroundings in return. Her professionalism helped her integrate in no time, making her an essential part of combat missions. The mood on the island, in turn, has felt the impact of Franka's presence.
For example, during her tenure as the swordfighting instructor for reserve Operators, she "initiated" every newbie in "Columbian style training", i.e., hazing. At the same time, she held almost nothing back in passing on her knowledge and experience to the rookies.
To those on the island, their biggest impression of Franka, besides her professional combat instruction and unique combat style, is her regular clashing with her partner Liskarm.

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.
The bond between Franka and Rhodes Island hinges solely on the agreements between Blacksteel and the company. She seems more and more like a Rhodes Island Operator each day now, though, and she is quite proud of that.
Oripathy has not bothered Franka in any way so far. She still goes about life in her own unique way, busy with work and combat, while continuing to look for fun and excitement on the job.

Appointed as Assistant We're changing shifts right now, Doctor. Just ignore me and get on with your work.
Talk 1 Back in BSW, I was appointed as a BPRS... you know, Biochemical Protection Response Staff. You can probably imagine what it was like... bulky hazmat suit and all that...
Talk 2 Hmm? You think I'm a clean freak? Well, Doctor, I see you're unexpectedly direct! I admire your courage.
Talk 3 Some of the Operators' rooms are in dire need of cleaning. For example, the one belonging to that high-and-mighty teacher's pet. What do you think?
Talk after Promotion 1 You want to see the intricate pattern on my sword up close? Sure, hold it tight, then. Don't let go—it'll heat up to 2,500 degrees Celcius in 3 seconds! Haha, just kidding! Don't be scared!
Talk after Promotion 2 Stay clear of that room full of chemical haze, toxins and harmful radiation... that's right, I mean Dr. Kal'tsit's lab.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 You're asking me for advice regarding the prevention of biochemical contamination? Well, for example... always brush your teeth after eating?
Talk after Trust Increase 2 Liskarm's been looking so flashy since she got her promotion. It's like she's saying "Shoot me here!"
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Good golly, if this is how free life is at Rhodes Island then I might just quit my job at BSW. Liskarm would be upset, though.
Idle There's a mosquito on your arm, Doctor.
Onboard I'm chemical specialist operator, Franka, here to do my bit to help minimize the pollution wrought by Originium.
Watching Battle Record Techniques like these could be used in all kinds of situations!
Promotion 1 Wooow, you're giving me a promotion? I'm having a lot more fun here than at BSW.
Promotion 2 *Giggle*, you want to see my sword at its most glorious? Too bad, Doctor—you're not qualified yet! If you work at it, maybe one day you'll gain the privilege!
Added to Squad All right, I'm ready.
Appointed as Squad Leader The best thing about training capable subordinates is that I get to let them handle all the annoying stuff for me.
Depart Well, let's go, then.
Begin Operation Too bad... these people have already been contaminated. In that case...
Selecting Operator 1 We have to hurry!
Selecting Operator 2 No time to hesitate.
Deployment 1 Offense isn't what I trained for, but hey...

4-star Result Obsession with power is a fool's game.
3-star Result That was perfect from start to finish. Well done.
