- High DP Cost
- Short Range and slightly slower Attack Speed

Operator Overview

"I'm Provence, your average disaster relief worker. Hmm, why are you staring at me like that? Interested in my tail?"

Are you up to the challenge? This fluffy relief worker is known for her High Accuracy Point Blank assassination killshots for  any enemy that dares to get close. The Catastrophe Messenger of Rhodes Island, Provence, specializes in DPS and finishing off low health targets. 

Provence has a short range for a Sniper, which she makes up for with high ATK and burst potential. Her Talent, Hunter’s Arrow,  gives her a chance to deal insane burst damage. Skill 1 - Wolf’s Eye is a passive skill (always active) that increases her damage  against weakened enemies (with low health), allowing her to mercilessly execute them. Skill 2 Prey Seeker, on the other hand, gives Provence a huge damage boost and, combined with her talent usage, allows her to put up impressive DPS numbers. 

Provence has many limitations as a Sniper which often make her a niche Operator to use. She doesn’t prioritize airborne targets, lacks the typical Sniper range, and cannot attack full health targets during Skill 2 activation. However, in conditions where these limitations do not hinder her effectiveness, she can achieve one of the highest DPS in the game, ensuring that any foe who dares to get close will be obliterated where they stand.

Elite Promotion Discussion

The fluffy tailed Sniper that preys on damaged enemies, Provence doubles the multiplicative attack buff gained by her Talent Hunter’s Arrow when she reaches E2.

Skill Discussion

S1: Wolf's Eye

How it works: 

The health % of the enemy before damage is dealt is used to determine the Attack_Multiplier.  The value of the modifier is determined in a linear fashion.  If the enemy has lost X% of its HP, then the final modifier will be X% of the total possible modifier.  The total possible modifier is 5x the listed value.

Example:

If an enemy were at 85% HP, she gets 15% of the total possible modifier.  At M3, the total possible modifier is 125%.  She would get 15% of that, so 18.75%, so the full Attack Multiplier would be 118.75%.

Base Skill Analysis

Provence gains her second RIIC Skill at Elite 2.

This is the strongest buff available for the HR Office, and only Eyja E2 can offer the same.  The fluffy-tailed nuker is a decent choice for E2 gameplay as well.

In the world of wilderness scouts, those who brave the wilds, watching for changes in weather forecast the approach of a Catastrophe, those who record previous Catastrophes and provide advance warnings for those that have yet to hit are called "Catastrophe Messenger."
Working do close to the devastating power of Catastrophes has a tendency to weigh on the Messengers, either jading them or traumatizing them. Many give up the work due to the heavy psychological toll. But Provence continues to shoulder these burdens. She has seen the destruction of life and limb wrought by the Catastrophes, and her love of that life serves as a powerful motivation for her to keep going back to work.
When it comes to the Catastrophes themselves, Provence's thoughts are complicated. She has borne witness to the havoc they wreak on the lives of the common people, but she does not let herself be overcome by negativity. She controls her emotions, remains optimistic, and keeps calm. These characteristics make her an excellent Catastrophe Messenger, as she brings not despair with her messages, but hope. These are the ideas that keep her charging into the wilderness under the shroud of pitch-black clouds.
As important as her resilience is to her work, Provence's wealth of experience and adaptability are equally powerful tools in her arsenal. She can hold out in the wilderness even with limited supplies, relying on well-trained survival instincts to see her and her companions through their challenges. Her intuition allows her to effectively assess threats, and her commitment to teamwork has made her one of our most reliable Operators.

Increase Trust to 100.
Provence's greatest hope is to improve how people face the challenges posed by Catastrophes. A staunch environmentalist, she fights against waste and littering, while advocating for the conservation of resources, and directly improves the environment through her own actions.
Provence is often seen busily hurrying between different uninhabited biomes and Rhodes Island, where she personally volunteers to clean and recycle waste in her spare time. She has also been known to take the time to politely and thoroughly lecture the less environmentally conscious of her fellow operators. Very few have been unmoved by her sincerity.

It is an uncommon occurance, but when all her work is done, including the volunteer cleanup she does, Provence enjoys her time off by carefully grooming her tail.
If her tail is adequately fluffed, she has been known to drop into the store to shop for some fashionable gifts for herself and her friends (including some outfits to add to her wardrobe), play with the children of Rhodes Island, try out new cooking recipes (with ingredients foraged in the wild, of course), organize the occasional shindig with her chums, and other such things that strike her fancy. Such is Provence's ideal lifestyle.

"We got a storm brewing near the island. Don't worry, I'll handle the evacuation. I've been in this restaurant before!"
Before Provence finished speaking, she was already diving headfirst into another operation deep in the wilds.
In fact, she is always in danger.
Because in fact, she suffers from Oripathy.
The work she so deeply values lets her infection slip her mind, but she is well aware of her condition. Still, she takes an optimistic outlook on life.
Provence's visit with the Doctor, however, has made her more aware of the seriousness of the overall situation.
To ease the Doctor's concerns and make the island safer, Provence continues to make regular trips into the wild.
