Botzu's Quick Evaluation
- Getting max potential Beagle is easier as you don't need to fish for Starter tag
“There's always the need for guys like me, you know? Nah, I'm not trying to act high and mighty. What I'm saying is: when you have a VIP plus a lot of danger, you need a guy to stand between them, that's all.”
His mask may make him seem distant, cold, and a little too much like the Phantom of the Opera, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Noir Corne (meaning “black horn”) is a Rhodes Island veteran who treats his juniors with warmth and generosity, watching their backs as a 2* Defender and one of the Starter Operators in Arknights.
As a 2* Operator, Noir Corne has no Skills, nor can he be promoted. However, he does earn a Talent at level 30: Improved Armor, which passively increases his HP and DEF. This gives him a tanking power spike that allows him to be useful for longer than his low maximum level would suggest. Combined with his ability to Block up to 3 enemies at once, Noir Corne can be a good low-investment meat shield, but his inability to promote means he won’t be able to survive high-level enemy fire.
He is valuable enough early on that it can be worth leveling him, especially if you are short on other Defenders. Early in the game, he can spearhead your main defense; in the midgame, he can still be used to guard alternate enemy routes or catch enemies that slip past your main lines.
Newbie Tier List Explanation
A surprisingly fine Defender for a 2-star unit. Can be used in a pinch for a Block-3 body if you can't (or don't want to) spend the resources on a higher-rarity Defender.

The mask he is seen with most frequently also seems to be his favorite. In his own words, 'This one best suits Rhodes Island's ambience.'
By the way, his mask does not hide any terrible secrets.

However, neither their backgrounds nor their interactions seem to clarify why.

Even if the enemies' offensive comes to be too fierce, Noir Corne won't be flustered. He knows it best, after all: if he falls before his teammates, then he'll stand back up before his teammates too. Regardless of if it's the tip of the frontline or the very rear, he'll hold fast.
