Botzu's Quick Evaluation
+ Talent: Immediately gain SP on deploy - allows quick Skill use
+ Good stats for a 3*
+ Wont hold you back on most content if you didn't pull any of the 4*+ AOE casters
- Not worth using more resources than is required to pass content, as all the higher rarity AOE casters are direct upgrades
“When on the battlefield, you've gotta act like it. I bet those people brought up in greenhouses have never thought about how you're supposed to aggravate or defeat the enemy. Ain't that right, Doctor?”
Lava talks and dresses like an antisocial Goth, so you might not be expecting her proactive attitude towards working with other people. At a young age, she started taking care of poor orphans in her Victorian neighborhood, and their many plights touched her deeply. Her fiery commitment to social improvement is mirrored by her Originium Arts, which allow her to conjure flames from her magical athame knife as a 3* AoE Caster.
The textbook example of an AoE Caster, Lava’s wide-range Arts attacks are perfect for burning through groups of weak enemies that would otherwise overwhelm your Operators by sheer force of numbers. Her Talent, Quick Skill Usage, gives her SP when she is deployed so she can more quickly use her Skill, Tactical Chant α, which increases her attack speed. Slow attack speed is a big weakness for AoE Casters, so this is a helpful Skill indeed.
Lava can be very useful in the early game, when Doctors may not have access to many AoE options. However, she starts to fall behind as AoE Snipers, AoE Guards, and higher-rarity AoE Casters enter the picture. Her Talent doesn’t help her to stand out (most Operators are granted Initial SP for their Skills by default) and she can’t E2-promote, so her long-term growth is limited. Even so, AoE Arts damage is such a tremendously useful tool that Lava can stay relevant for a good long while.

|Appointed as Assistant||Need something? If you don't... Oh, I know... I can tell you your fortune.|
|Talk 1||Just tell me when there's work to do. But don't ever put her and me on the same team. I hate her guts. And don't get me started on the weird food she makes me eat... Just thinking about it makes me... euurghh...|
|Talk 2||No one told me Hibiscus was here too before I came to Rhodes Island... It's too late for me to quit now...|
|Talk 3||When on the battlefield, you've gotta act like it. I bet those people brought up in greenhouses have never thought about how you're supposed to aggravate or defeat the enemy. Ain't that right, Doctor?|
|Talk after Promotion 1||Have you heard that saying 'little sisters are righteous'? If it's true, then my sister is evil by default... at least she is as far as I'm concerned.|
|Talk after Trust Increase 1||Any instruments? I can sort of play the piano. My teacher in Leithanien said learning an instrument can improve your Arts affinity. It apparently also eases the impact that Oripathy has on your mind...|
|Talk after Trust Increase 2||I'm starving... Huh, what's this? You keep candy in here? Nom... I'm in the middle of my training, so should I really be eating this...|
|Talk after Trust Increase 3||Like, I don't have a big beef with Hibiscus... It's all water under the bridge. I'm fine with her as long as she doesn't force me to eat her medicine and food. After all, she was the one... who saved my life...|
|Idle||I almost envy your ability to sleep like a log...|
|Onboard||I'm Lava. I'm a Caster. I'm just here cause I'm bored and want something to do... I've heard my sworn nemesis is here too, though... Can I just quit now?|
|Watching Battle Record||Thanks.|
|Promotion 1||Did you forget? I don't need a cause to work for, and I don't need a team... but... thanks, I guess...|
|Added to Squad||As far as teamwork's concerned... I don't mind, as long as nobody messes up.|
|Appointed as Squad Leader||I'm not good at this sort of stuff, but if you insist...|
|Depart||Let's go. Keep an eye on my back.|
|Begin Operation||I can see their souls. They're mine to reap.|
|Selecting Operator 1||What are you waiting for?|
|Selecting Operator 2||Hurry up.|
|Deployment 1||Come on.|
|Deployment 2||That's it.|
|In Battle 1||It's game over for you.|
|In Battle 2||Even the dead can't save you.|
|4-star Result||The supreme form of arts? Huh, sounds interesting.|
|3-star Result||I foresaw this result earlier. A perfect victory.|
|Sub 3-star Result||My fortune telling isn't always right. Sometimes there's a lot of external noise and the outcome ends up different.|
|Operation Failure||Dammit... These evil spirits are too strong...|
|Assigned to Facility||Well, all right. I like working alone anyhow.|
|Tap||Stop touching me! Uaghh!|
|Trust Tap||Y-you're not gonna score points with me by doing that!|
|Greeting||Oh, it's you, Doctor. Morning.|
As part of her training, the steady and prolonged casting will help her control her Arts, while the exploding ones mixed in with the normal slugs will be a test of the operator's battlefield alertness.
