Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ S2: Can provide decently long lasting AoE Slow with some damage when fully charged.
- Extremely poor overall damage.
- RNG-reliant kit for an effect many other Operators can provide in a more straightforward and consistent way.
- Very unreliable utility and support.
- Relatively expensive for what little he provides.

Operator Overview

Greyy was a physically weak, very sick orphan when he was brought to Rhodes Island. His gratitude to Rhodes Island for becoming his surrogate family caused him to put the organization’s needs above his own—he would stay up all night, forgetting to eat, as he tried to fix machinery or refine an Arts process. There were times when the medical department was worried he wouldn’t survive the experience. Fortunately, his Alter form—Greyy the Lightningbearer—proves that he does survive, and even advances to the position of 5* Flinger Sniper with technology that can Slow enemies and deal multiple hits in an AoE.

Greyy the Lightningbearer’s main invention is his Light-stealing Chain Talent, which gives his attacks a chance to Slow their targets. (The effect seems to be calculated per target, not per attack, so Greyy can Slow some targets but not others even if he hits all of them.) Flinger Snipers deal two hits with their attacks—the initial AoE and then the aftershock—and both hits can inflict Light-stealing Chain’s Slow, making the Slow activation more reliable than it may sound. When it comes to Skills, Greyy the Lightningbearer can either increase his low ASPD with his Swift Strike γ S1 or double down on his name with his S2, Beacon of Dawn. This Skill creates a lightning ball that lasts for several seconds, regularly dealing Arts damage and potentially inflicting Slow upon all nearby enemies.

The Flinger archetype has several advantages: wide attack range, AoE attacks, and an extra hit on their regular attacks. However, Flingers can also be rather awkward to use. They cannot attack flying enemies; their slow ASPD limits their damage potential; and though they often have crowd-control abilities, the activation chance tends to be unreliable. Greyy the Lightningbearer suffers from all these issues, in particular the inconsistency of Light-stealing Chain.

On the plus side, the bonus ASPD of S1 and the extra hits from S2 go a long way to make up for these shortcomings, both increasing Greyy the Lightningbearer’s DPS and giving him more chances to inflict Slow. The Arts damage of S2 also helps him deal with high-DEF enemies, who can be difficult for the multi-hitting Flinger archetype. He still can’t target flying enemies, but that’s okay: Greyy the Lightningbearer is best suited for holding a chokepoint, where he can use the Beacon of Dawn to eliminate enemies en masse as they bottleneck against your brave Blockers.

Newbie Tier List Explanation

He has poor damage and unreliable utility on top of being in an Archetype with heavy restrictions: and all at an expensive 5 Star development cost. New players should avoid this one.

While many Niche players may find decent value in Greyy due to his wide range Slow and Arts damage, his kit ends up being both weak and frustrating for most. The Flinger archetype is flawed to begin with, and Greyy’s poor damage and low-chance RNG component to his control mean that he is largely more trouble than he is worth.

Should you be one of those niche players, or simply find Greyy an appealing unit despite his flaws, you will probably want to stick with S2 Mastery, which has better odds on his control uptime, and decent gains. Be especially wary of him in IS. Many popular relics don't affect his lightning ball, you don't want RNG to end your run, and the archetype lacks the flexibility you typically need from a Sniper ticket.

Profile

Greyy has passed multiple engineering examinations.
Now working at the Engineering Department, he specializes in R&D and the applications of new technologies, as well as participating in combat and technology testing as necessary.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging tests show the indistinct outlines of internal organs, obscured by abnormal shadows. Originium granules detected in the circulatory system. The subject is confirmed to be infected with Oripathy.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 7.3%
Assimilation has been brought under control, but caution for the patient's condition remains necessary.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.26u/L
Owing to the patient's condition, we've taken a series of invasive procedures and were met with surprising results. It is recommended that we steadily progress with this treatment.

Both the Medical and Engineering Departments have received complaints regarding Operator Greyy's lifestyle and the way he works, but these complaints have always left the operators there stupefied.
To help everyone, Greyy truly has worked so hard that he might have overdone it. We've even heard reports of him helping inspect electrical wiring till late at night, whereupon he ended up passing out due to hypoglycemia from not even taking the time to eat. But having seen how industrious he always is, we found it difficult to speak up and dampen his enthusiasm. Though he himself felt guilty about this, he was likely to repeat the same mistake and exhaust himself again.
'We need a turning point,' Mechanist suddenly proclaimed, as he finished reading a large-scale inspection report. Then, on another exceptionally normal day, we all heard that Mechanist suddenly took on a new apprentice. While this is nothing unusual, it's not all that common either, given how strenuous the elite operators' missions are.
Mechanist simply dismissed it as a natural turn of events, though. Eh, apprentices. Nothing is more important than having a decent goal and a thirst for knowledge, isn't that right? As it turns out, helping others channel their energy properly and sorting out mechanical wiring structures may not actually be all that different.
Of course, ever since then, the Medical and Engineering Departments have received a lot less of the aforementioned complaints regarding Greyy.

It seems Greyy tends not to take very good care of his own health. This is especially evident in... how he spends all his time studying and working, day and night. Ordinarily, this wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. But it's a different story when we're talking about an Oripathy patient with a weaker physical constitution than a healthy person. Of course, the Medical Department monitors his work and rest to prevent it from getting too unreasonable, but what we are actually more concerned about is his mental health.
HR even asked us to confirm this, but tests don't lie. Contrary to our assumptions, Operator Greyy does not have survivor syndrome or any similar disorders. We must admit we were probably a little too narrow-minded. The driving force behind his diligence is not trauma, or even a wish to repay Rhodes Island's kindness. Rather, he is genuinely interested in these technologies, and truly wants to use them to improve people's lives.
We often picture 'technology improving our lives' in terms of the conveniences brought by technological advancement, but it's easy to forget a key part of this picture: the men and women who work tirelessly to implement the technology that improves our lives. This goes for both medical and engineering tech. At Rhodes Island, we strive to provide operators like Greyy a platform where they can excel and flourish.

For centuries, the energy found in Originium has both worried and motivated us. In the history of its taming, the most exciting achievement ever made was undoubtedly the technology to generate electricity with it. This breakthrough single-handedly solved the problem of the high cost of Originium Arts conductors and accelerated the economization of Originium energy, while also improving its safety and ease of use.
Thanks to this technology, a wide range of products that require a stable supply of Originium energy have become available on the market. These include lighting equipment that has no risk of explosion and no need for high maintenance costs, something that we now take for granted. The unearthing of Originium energy had an explosive impact on Terra, and it was this technology that turned that impact into a trickling stream that continues to enrich each and every nomadic city.

The control systems produced and manufactured by Volvort Kochinski are known far and wide. Based on our investigations, Operator Greyy's mother was very likely an engineer employed by that company. However, we have yet to find her name in any of their files. Moreover, there are also reports suggesting that the prototype of a certain piece of technology once stolen from the company was discovered in Bolívar. How it got there is currently being investigated. Based on the scattered clues we currently possess though, we have reason to believe that the prototype was undoubtedly related to a new form of energy technology. Technological innovation brings more than just good, and to sustain its birth there are always sacrifices not known to the masses. We risk being traced ourselves if we investigate any further, and as such, may have to put this matter on pause for the time being.
In addition, we have reason to believe that Greyy's father was arrested during the unrest and disappeared without a trace soon thereafter. The chances that he survived are slim. It is recommended that HR use their discretion in determining whether the operator should be informed of this.

Lately, Mechanist has been a tad bit depressed. Just a little. But what's even more depressing is that, from a bystander's point of view, the way he looks when he's depressed is almost comical. Or perhaps it's because it's not easy for anyone to relate to what he's feeling.
Come to think of it, on a mission related to Rhine Lab not too long ago, he saw a kind of substance that existed only in imagination, although that's hardly unexpected in a place like that.
Right, it may not exactly be beyond imagination. Originium Arts and conductors have for a long time allowed us to bring our wildest dreams to life, but if someone were to tell you that someone actually created something that'd previously been only a pipe dream...
Right, it'd make you feel a little left out. That it was a little unfair. And, of course, maybe a little... jealous?
Ferdinand was telling the truth, though. Of course, such a magnificent Arts conductor like that, like something out of science fiction, could herald the start of a new era. What's more, its purpose was clearly more than just a conductor. Naturally, every engineer who admires cutting-edge technology wouldn't be able to control their eagerness to try it out.
Fortunately, having seen that transmitter at its fullest potential, Greyy knows how Mechanist feels. Unfortunately, that just means we have one more slightly depressed engineer.
