Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Trait: Decreased Redeployment time
+ Talent: Increases ATK when attacking infected lifeforms
+ Very useful in the integrated strategies mode due to the ability to solo early rounds.
+ S2: Deals significant damage and rapidly heals himself and nearby allies when attacking low to medium DEF enemies. Great for certain bosses and high damage enemies who have low DEF as he can out-sustain their damage
+ S1: A great counter to exploding spiders as he will deal a large amount damage to them and silence on every hit
- Very difficult to use on maps with decreased DP regen
- His healing is based on damage done, so when facing high DEF enemies his healing amount drops significantly.
- Trait: No DP refund on retreat, uses 3 DP every 3 seconds while deployed, and will forcibly retreat when DP is not sufficient to keep him deployed

Operator Overview

“Boss, I noticed that if I see enemies as ingredients, fighting is quite easy.”

His scary face! His deadly knife skills! His multiple scars! Jaye must be a terrifying member of some gang or mafia group! …what do you mean, he’s just a street vendor?

This was Hoshiguma’s experience when she went into the Lungmen slums thinking she was hunting down a deadly criminal for the good of society and found Jaye to be a hapless domestic type who sells finballs. Hoshiguma observed him for a while to make sure she wasn’t being fooled, and when she determined that he was in fact as honest and mild-mannered as he seemed, she recommended him to Rhodes Island. Honored by the attention, Jaye has agreed to work as a 4* DP-Drain Specialist, able to whip up fast-redeploy capabilities, Silence debuffs, and mixed DPS and healing at a moment’s notice.

Jaye’s archetype has reduced redeployment time like a Fast-Redeploy Specialist, but it also comes with an extra wrinkle: Jaye consumes 3 DP every 3 seconds that he is deployed on the field. In other words, ALL of the naturally generated DP on a normal map! If you’re on a stage with reduced DP gain, you can’t keep Jaye deployed without at least one Vanguard (possibly two) working to supply him with DP. Jaye has a very low DP cost to make up for this, but is he worth the effort it takes to fuel his tank?

In short, yes. Jaye has solid HP, ATK, and DEF stats, fast ASPD, and some very powerful Skills with very quick charge times. His Skill 1, Shell Splitter, is a permanent buff that increases Jaye’s ATK and causes his attacks to Silence enemies briefly, sealing their special abilities. His Skill 2, Sashimi Platter, is another permanent buff that increases his ATK, but it has the secondary effect of tossing a finball to a nearby ally every time Jaye attacks, healing them for a percentage of the damage he dealt to his target. This heal can be beefed up even more (beef? But it’s fish!) by Jaye’s Talent, Anatomy Master, which increases Jaye’s ATK when targeting an Infected Lifeform. More ATK equals more damage equals more healing!

Jaye is certainly a unique kind of Operator, and not all Doctors will want to deal with the amount of DP he requires to keep working. It’s also important to remember that Sashimi Platter can only heal allies when Jaye is attacking; he can’t use it to heal allies in between enemy waves, for example. However, if you can keep him in business, Jaye is a shockingly powerful Operator. His fast attack speed and high damage potential are the perfect ingredients for nonstop healing, and his fast redeploy time and low SP costs make it easy to retreat him off the field when you don’t need him (so he stops eating DP) and then drop him back down when things heat up again. Keep this humble salesman well-fed and he’s sure to whet your appetite for success in return!

Seafood hawker with an imposing facade.
When he first arrived, the other operators thought Hoshiguma had brought us a real rough customer. But after getting to know him, it became clear that Jaye is, in fact, very nice.
And he really is nothing more than a seafood hawker.

Archive File 2

Increase Trust to 100.
Despite how he may look at first glance, Jaye has a quiet personality, even coming off a bit stiff. He enjoys reading books and improving his cooking. He would like nothing more than to live a simple life, but, as we all know, you can’t always get what you want.
Jaye reports having been sent to the slums to work at a very young age. And thanks to his appearance, as well as his skills with a knife, he was often mistaken for a triad. And since the “triads” of the Lungmen slums often keep a low profile, mixing in with ordinary folk and setting up front businesses, suspicion fell on Jaye. The misunderstandings and misconceptions piled on top of each other, giving Jaye a reputation as a dangerous man, not to be messed with. Some rumors even labeled him the true puppetmaster behind several different gangs.
But really, Jaye just wanted to sell his seafood. He’d haul his goods to market, and sometimes help out at the finball shop. The rumors weighed heavily on Jaye. But there was nothing he could do about them.

Archive File 3

Increase Trust to 150.
According to Waai Fu, Jaye is very skilled, and as warm inside as he is cold outside. He is beloved by his regulars, who include Old Lee of Lee’s Detective Agency, a fan of both Jaye’s stall and the finball shop.
One day, after closing up his stall, Jaye came upon Waai Fu in the midst of her fight against injustice. After they got to know one another, Waai Fu realized it was Jaye’s stall Old Lee liked so much. And as the old man sent her out on her many errands, she became much closer to Jaye.
The upstanding Waai Fu would, from time to time, help Jaye deal with problems here and there. But that only served to confirm his reputation as a dangerous killer to the uninitiated. And Waai Fu became known as a Yen kung fu master in his service.
Though Jaye certainly isn't the professional killer he's sometimes rumored to be, the situation in the slums is still chaotic and complex. Consequently, the question of Jaye’s identity endures through the fights and scuffles around him.

Increase Trust to 200.
So the rumors persist. But this is not to say they are entirely without benefit.
For example, Hoshiguma developed an interest in Jaye based on these rumors. Upon coming to understand his true nature, she grew concerned for him and ultimately referred him to us at Rhodes Island.
Hoshiguma knows about old Lungmen. And she tells us that although Jaye is not a triad, he is connected with a certain Uncle Tung, who is a known associate of the Rat King. She says that, entirely unbeknownst to Jaye, this old man has worked to help him.
It is clear to us that Hoshiguma revealed this information not to bring suspicion upon Jaye, but to prevent any problems or misunderstandings from arising in the future.
Jaye is just Jaye, a normal civilian who has joined Rhodes Island. And that isn’t going to change.

Appointed as Assistant Need a midnight snack, Boss?
Talk 1 Here you go, Boss. And this. You mentioned it before... Everyone says I have a good memory, but I don’t know.
Talk 2 When I’m off, I practice cooking... Not just seafood. What do you like to eat, Boss?

Talk after Trust Increase 1 I had Officer Hoshiguma on me for a while, for a couple of reasons... But I know she was just looking out for me, same as the neighborhood aunties and uncles.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 I’ve been told that with my looks, plus my knife skills, I was born to be evil. I didn’t like that, but what could I do...? After coming to Rhodes Island, I realized I should just do what makes me happy.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Boss, do you think there’s any way to put my memory to good use...? I never thought about it before, but it would be nice if I could help.
