“I... I really did it? I managed to protect everyone by myself?”
Blacksteel’s young and talented operator and Liskarm's trainee, Jessica now serves under Rhodes Island as part of an exchange program. Jessica may look timid and insecure, but on the battlefield, she’s a powerful asset as she specializes in DPS,Survival, and taking down airborne units.
Despite her insecurities, Jessica can be very useful in battle with her assortment of skills. Her first skill, Power Strike β, allows Jessica to fire a powered up shot every few attacks when equipped. Due to this skill’s low SP cost and high damage multiplier, Jessica will be able to effectively deliver sustained damage. Her second skill is Smokescreen. When the player activates this skill, Jessica’s damage will be increased and she’ll deploy a smoke cover, granting herself 75% physical and Arts evasion.
Jessica is a free unit obtained early on by clearing stage TR-3. Unlike most Free Units, she can be upgraded to Elite 2, which means she won’t fall behind higher rarity operators too much. Even before promoting, Jessica is very useful with her first skill contributing sustained DPS, which makes her one of the most widely-used starter operators. Moreover, Jessica's Smokescreen skill is quite unique among snipers. Although its use is much more niche than Jessica’s first skill, as DPS is more of a priority for snipers that survivability, it’ll definitely be useful in stages where ranged units are exposed to enemy attacks.

Perhaps thanks to her timidity, Blacksteel executives would often scoop Jessica up and subject her to tests of new equipment and devices. Even after arriving at Rhodes Island, Operators would ask Jessica to demonstrate their new equipment before they'd be willing to use it. In a way, it shows how naturally trustworthy Jessica is.
