Operator Overview

Translation Credits: Jetroyz of the RIHQ Discord, Laulicon#6707

Name: Kafka

-------------

"Is there something you want from Kafka... hey, don't say it out loud in front of so many people. Just think of me as a normal gardener."

-------------

A short Liberi girl who's always grinning. A former Columbian gardener who followed Mountain to Rhodes Island. She didn't intend to stay at first, but joined Rhodes Island in the end after Silence's request. Agile and quick-witted, she's active in many kinds of steal missions. Her behavior is filled with an act of cuteness that's easily seen through, and she herself doesn't mind that at all. However she hates being treated like a kid due to her height, and will quickly get mad.

-------------

Kafka is a 5★ Fast-Redeploy Specialist that can inflict Sleep, become Invisible, and deal Arts Damage!

Talent and Skills

ArchetypeFast-Redeploy Specialist

Trait: Significantly reduced Redeployment Time

Talent: When Kafka's passive skills are active, increase ATK, reduce Block Count to 0 and gain [Invisible]

Skill 1: For several seconds after deployment, Kafka stops attacking and inflicts [Sleep] (invincible + cannot take action) to all nearby ground enemies. When the skill ends, inflict a certain amount of Arts damage to all nearby ground enemies

Skill 2: After deployment, immediately deal a certain amount of Arts damage to all enemies in the tiles ahead of self. Thereafter, continuously deal single target Arts attacks to ground enemies for a certain period.

First Impressions

Note: These are first impressions and based on conjecture since we don’t know the exact details. 

Kafka represents some new utility in the Fast-Redeploy tool belt.   She'll be one of the few Operators that can inflict Sleep (Blemishine perks up!), and will be the first of her Archetype to offer Arts Damage to take on high DEF targets.  

The biggest question mark for me at this point is her Talent.  Reducing her Block Count to 0 and becoming Invisible wil certainly increase her survivability, especially against hard-hitting high-DEF enemies.  However, it also means she can't block or stall them, which means if you are trying to use her as an assassin, the target might need to be stopped or blocked to get much DPS time before it passes through her.  It does look like S2 has some range on it, so this could mitigate this issue somewhat depending on its range.

Overall, she seems to be an interesting addition that will find use as part of a smart-doc's arsenal.

Profile

Former horticulturist of a city in Colombia, introduced by Silence to Rhodes Island.

She is able-bodied, quick-thinking, and usually active in various covert missions.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.

Imaging tests have shown the outlines of the operator’s internal organs to be indistinct due to abnormal shadows. Originium granules have been detected in her circulatory system, confirming her to be infected with Oripathy.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 5%

There is a small amount of Originium crystals visible on the Operator's body.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.19u/L

Based on the Operator's story, we can determine that her Oripathy was slowly contracted through contact with various people over time. However, since the operator practiced good living habits, her condition did not deteriorate to the point that she needed more serious treatment.

Archive File 1

Increase Trust to 50.

This small Liberi girl is always grinning happily.

Her actions and words are easily seen through as merely pretending to be a "good girl", and she obviously does it on purpose and has no intention of correcting her behaviour even though she is aware of it, so while she does not have a good reputation among the staff, she does not seem to care about it at all.

However, she hates being treated like a child because of her height and gets angry easily.

Archive File 2

Increase Trust to 100.

According to Kafka herself, she did not initially intend to join Rhodes Island.

After completing the registration of Mountain and Robin and Lotus to Rhodes (TL note: Lotus is an unreleased character as of now, first introduced in Mansfield Break event. Her real name is Dumas, the undertaker.), she intended to leave, but was left behind by Silence.

The reason for this is that her Oripathy, which she had concealed from Silence, was revealed during the physical examination when she landed on the Rhodes Island landship.

So that day, the following conversation took place in the medical department.

"Kafka, I didn't even notice that you actually had Oripathy, why didn't you tell me!"

"Tch, I can't believe I was found out ...... I didn't want you to know because I knew I'd never hear the end of it from you if you found out......"

"Anyway, you should immediately come with me to the medical department to do a full medical examination!"

"No, I don't want to! I'm going back to Columbia!"

"Absolutely not."

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, don't pull me! I can't afford to be treated in a place like this!"

"I'll pay for it, you don't have to worry."

"That's not the problem ...... Arghh, forget it ......"

All in all, after Kafka's medical report came out, she finally agreed to stay in Rhode Island and eventually became an Operator under Silence's persistent request.

Archive File 3

Increase Trust to 150.

After learning Kafka's true identity, the reasoning behind her pretending to be a good girl became less incomprehensible.

Underneath her superficial identity as a horticulturist, she is actually someone who roams between small gangs in the lower and middle classes of the city - a gangster.

She was orphaned and grew up eating a hundred different kinds of food, and she grew up dealing with all kinds of gangsters, and early on she mastered a philosophy of survival on her own, and the embodiment of that philosophy is - acting nice.

She actually doesn't care if someone hates her because of this persona, rather she is happy to do so, she doesn't want to be liked by many people and doesn't want to like many people, this kind of false "good behavior" is what she thinks is the best tool to keep her distance from others.

Obviously, this idea comes from living every day in the grey area of the city - betrayal, deception, bloodshed. In such an environment, being alone is the best thing to do.

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.

It is evident that to Kafka, Silence was an unexpected surprise, and this surprise can be glimpsed in Kafka's attitude towards the Doctor.

For someone like Kafka, she will always avoid getting too deeply involved with a person because then she won't be able to maintain her mask. And obviously, as an Operator, Kafka inevitably has to be in regular contact with the Doctor, and through the course of such contact, there will inevitably be times when she removes her disguise.

And according to the Doctor's observation, Kafka's nature, which didn't surprise many people - in fact, in the eyes of many of the weathered veteran Operators, Kafka's tricks aren't good enough- she is righteous, emotional, lives in the present, and never thinks about the future.

And for such a woman, if the Doctor is her second friend, then her casual acquaintence Silence is the first.

We have no way of knowing how much she actually had interacted with Silence in the past, but after coming to Rhodes Island, while she laughs at Silence's honesty, the way she can't seem to stop worrying also makes people laugh, which improved her image in the hearts of the many other Operators.

E2 Record:

Upgrade to Elite LV2.

At the time of her second promotion, Kafka's sentiment unexpectedly gave people a sense of sincerity.

But this is something that can be understood, people who pay a little attention to her can easily see that, when compared to the old Kafka who just arrived on Rhodes Island who was sly, evasive and unwilling to take up any responsibility, the current Kafka may look the same on the outside, but on the inside, she has changed.

She will quietly bring small presents for the children, and help others in need without batting an eyelid. When she has free time, she often visits Perfumer's greenhouse, and they now get along very well.

It is clear that she has found a place of her own in Rhodes Island.

Just as we judged from the very beginning, although her life in the gray zone of Columbia made it difficult for her to open up to others, she was always a kind person underneath, so much so that we suspect that she had to use that personality to disguise and deceive herself in order to stay alive.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant Dr. tells Kafka what work needs to be done, and then Kafka relays it to everyone...... Understood. This is just the standard work of an underground broker!
Talk 1 Since Doctor has become Kafka's friend, then other than asking to borrow my scissors, you can make any kind of request!
Talk 2 There are so many strange people in Rhodes Island, and there are things everywhere that Kafka wants. Hmm? You want to know what I want, Doctor? That's a secret. S-e-c-r-e-t.
Talk 3 Woah ...... your eyes are always as calm as water, Doctor. They're completely impenetrable ...... But one day, Kafka will see your true colours!
Talk after Promotion 1 Doctor, Silence kicked me out again, I'm so sad oh, boo hoo ...... Eh? I screwed up her experiment first? Ah, Silence beat me to it ...... Ahem, I'll be off then!
Talk after Promotion 2 Well, then, until I get what I want, I'll lend you my power for the time being. But I'm just lending it.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 Kafka used to live in a very bad place, dealing with bad people almost every day. After coming here, everyone was very friendly to Kafka and gave me lots of delicious snacks. Well, that's why Kafka likes Rhodes Island so much!
Talk after Trust Increase 2 ...... The secrets that everyone tries so hard to hide are as beautiful and dangerous as the monsters that are lurking quietly in the shadows, waiting for their chance to move. That's why I'm trying to turn them into my collection. Doctor, do you have anything that I can collect?
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Doctor, If you are ever in trouble, just call my "friends" in Columbia to help ...... But then again, that won't be necessary. Kafka alone will be able to solve all your difficulties.
Idle Doctor, you must have thought Kafka was goofing off. But you're wrong~
Onboard What do you want from Kafka ...... Hey, don't say that in front of so many people. Just pretend I’m an ordinary gardener.
Watching Battle Record Once you guess the other party's goal, you can formulate a countermeasure, right? Isn't Kafka very smart?
Promotion 1 If Doctor needs Kafka's power so much, you can just say so. Isn't it good to be as hardworking and frank like Kafka?
Promotion 2 Whether it was gardening or fighting, I never did them to be complimented by others. But Kafka felt very happy to have my efforts recognized by Doctor and everyone else.
Added to Squad What can I harvest this time?
Appointed as Squad Leader Leave it to me, I promise to make it fun for everyone.
Depart It's so troublesome to think...... that's why it's better to just listen to Doctor's instructions.
Begin Operation So many naughty saplings? So cute ...... Just let Kafka prune you nicely~
Selecting Operator 1 Hmm?
Selecting Operator 2 Kafka understands~
Deployment 1 This place then.
Deployment 2 Hehe~
In Battle 1 Your eyes ...... have exposed your weakness.
In Battle 2 You are all just moving hedges!
In Battle 3 Let me break you all.
In Battle 4 Kafka knows you're scared, you little trembling dead branches.
4-star Result The Doctor is as calm as ever. Alright, I have to work hard too!
3-star Result The enemy was so weak. If I had known, I would have just fooled around for a bit.
Sub 3-star Result Well, I'll have to trim more carefully next time.
Operation Failure ...... In the end, we never got to understand their intentions.
Assigned to Facility Where's Silence's office again?
Tap What do you think you’re doing?
Trust Tap Doctor, Kafka wants to make potted plants to decorate your office. Don't worry, I'll make it look good~
Title Arknights.
Greeting Got any work scheduled for me today, Doctor?
