Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Talent: Passive Arts Resistance
+ Huge HP and Arts Resist make him a great Arts Damage tank
+ He's a middle ground between the Healing and DEF Defenders
- Too niche to warrant heavy investment
- Lacks strong physical damage mitigation, so DEF Defenders are more durable
- Healing Defenders can usually handle Arts damage while providing more utility

Operator Overview

“I will not step back, not even if this shield shatters the very next second. Not because of my loyalty, but because of my conviction.”

Matterhorn, trained from a young age to be bodyguard and protector of the SilverAsh family, now lends his shield and strength to Rhodes Island as a representative of the Karlan Trading Company of Kjerag.  Matterhorn is a 4★ Defender who can block 3 enemies.

Matterhorn specializes in tanking Arts Damage.  He has base passive Arts Resistance (rare for non-healing Defenders), and his Talent, Snowfield Guard, raises it even more.  When increased even further by his Skill 2, Cold Resistance, he boasts one of the highest Arts Resistance stats of any Defender.

Unfortunately for Matterhorn, the need to mitigate Arts Damage is a very niche role, and it can often be handled just as well by a Healing Defender (who would bring the additional benefit of being able to heal allies).  Hard-hitting Physical damage Elite and Boss enemies are much more common, and Matterhorn lacks Skills to significantly raise his Defense. For physical damage mitigation, he even lags behind some lower-rarity options.

Overall, Matterhorn is not a bad option for early-game players as a well-rounded defender (especially since Heal Defenders can only block 2 before E1).  In the mid- to late-game, min/maxers may enjoy finding ways to utilize his great Arts Resistance to the best effect, but for most players his niche use likely will not justify the investment costs.

Since he was young, Matterhorn was trained to be SilverAsh's bodyguard. His father and grandfather were honorable guards for SilverAsh's family. Naturally, this became his goal, as well. However, unlike military training during his father's time, he still had the opportunity to study other subjects. Almost subconsciously, he chose cooking.

Compared to foreign nations that are rich in resources, Kjerag has very few edible varities of plants and animals. Even a wealthy family like SilverAsh's usually only eats plain meals. However, once Matterhorn became a cook, everything changed. His mastery of the art of cooking is awe-inspiring. With just a handful of Kjerag ingredients, he can craft culinary delicacies untasted by native Kjerags. It's no wonder that the politicians of Kjerag used to hold meetings at the government's reception hall, but now they only want to meet at SilverAsh's home. The power of food is truly something to behold.

After coming to Rhodes Island, Matterhorn's combat frequency and intensity have increased substantially. His equipment, especially his shield, are in constant need of repair. Matterhorn knows some ways to perform simple repairs in the heat of battle, but thorough maintenance requires the skills of an artisan. Upon being given a recommendation, Matterhorn met Vulcan. Surprised by each other's abilities, they quickly established a long-term relationship: Vulcan maintains Matterhorn's equipment while Matterhorn provides renumeration. When they have free time, they exchange culinary recipes and occasionally share meals together. They are a good example of what close friends should be.

Matterhorn's ancestors were born in the norther region of Kjerag where the environment is harsh and people fight against nature day after day. To ensure the survival of the others, when northern Kjerags go out to fight, they are considered dead. This conviction has resulted in future generations of brave warriors like Matterhorn.

Appointed as Assistant I've moved your goods to where you need them. No worries, they weren't heavy.
Talk 1 The shield is a symbol of a steadfast guardian.
