Operator Overview

Hello Doctor, allow me to express my gratitude Rhodes Island once again, thank you for taking care of me and my friends. I have been resting in the HR department long enough, now please allow me to join Zima and my other fellow comrades in combat."

——————

Rosa, a member of the Ursus Student Self-Governing Group, joined Rhodes Island after the Chernobog Incident alongside other members of the group. Soon after she was relegated to the logistic department, but now, by her own request, is being transferred to the combat forces after undergoing training. Although coming from a noble background, she quickly acclimated herself to her new life in Rhodes Island. She is indifferent to the status of her fellow operators and is polite to every one of them. Whether it be work or social events, she always displays maturity unusual for her young age.

——————

Story and quote translations provided by Harezora of r/Arknights

Rosa (In Cryllic: Poca) is a 6★ Sniper of an Archetype not yet seen before in Arknights.  Wielding a wicked-looking harpoon launcher, she has a unique Attack Range (as can be seen in the image below), and prioritizes heavy enemies.  Her S3 also has an element of multi-target crowd-control.

Talents and Skills

Trait: Prioritize the heaviest enemy

Talent: When attacking heavier enemies, ignore a percentage of the target's DEF

Skill 1:During skill activation, increase ATK

Skill 2: During skill activation, increase ATK and attack an additional enemy

Skill 3: During skill activation, increase ATK and immediately fire harpoons at multiple enemies with the highest weight. Enemies hit by the harpoons will be bound and receive damage every second.

First Impressions

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

It's always exciting when a new Class Archetype is introduced!  Rosa is the first of her kind, prioritizing high-weight enemies, and having a unique range that ignores close-range targets in favor of covering a wider area at further distance.  Her promoted range is reported to look like this:

PocaRangeE1

Rosa certainly seems to offer some new possibilities, both in terms of range and trait, that could offer some interesting strategic options.  There are not a lot of current Snipers that offer strong utility against high DEF/high weight enemies.  How "niche" she ends up being will probably depend on what the exact numbers end up looking like.  Overall, though, she seems like an interesting Operator with some unique potential, and I'm looking forward to seeing how she plays!

Profile

Rosa had studied as a high school before the Chernobog incident and was the student council president. Joins Rhodes Island after the incident and was at the Logistics Department with excellent work. At her own request, she is now a sniper operator on the frontlines.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.

Imaging tests show clear, normal outlines of internal organs, and no abnormal shadows have been detected. Originium granules have not been detected in the circulatory system and there is no sign of infection. At this time, this Operator can be confirmed to be uninfected.

[Cell-Originium Fusion Rate] 0%

Operator shows no signs of infection at this time.

[Blood Crystal Density] 0.15u/L

Although Operator Rosa has got into contact with Originium rarely in the past, but since the Chernobog incident, she should have gotten into close contact with Originium due to environmental changes after the Catastrophe. Therefore, although there are no symptoms, but it is likely and need further monitoring.

Increase Trust to 50.

A pureblood lady of declining nobility.

When she quickly adjusted to life at Rhodes Island, to her, identity is something that did not matter. To most operators, she is just a polite girl. Whether work or socialization, she presents with a maturity that does not match her age.

Increase Trust to 100.

Once, the nobles gained stable prosperity by depending on their bloodline. But in modern times, their positions were threatened by new industries and political elites.

In some countries, like Columbia, the positions of well-known enterprises were all seemingly like the veins of other countries. A lowly noble may not be as rich as a CEO of a Columbian company. As business and industries continued to expand, many rich nobles with foresight tried to convert their land into commodities.

But there were some traditional countries, like Ursus. This kind of change was slower and more painful. At least before the Great Chaos, nobles held most of their rights to speech. If not for that accident, the political structure of Ursus would not have changed at all.

According to Rosa’s description, she was born in the house of Rostova as one of the newest nobles after the great betrayal. Originally just the followers of a certain lord, they got everything from the lord.

Chernobog’s mayor, Boris, was also one of the new nobles. The two families clashed over some murky business in Chernobog. This made her family gain high status in Chernobog.

Of course, all these became nothing when Chernobog was destroyed.

Archive File 3

Increase Trust to 150.

After Rosa established a trusting relationship with Doctor, she described about her experiences in the Chernobog incident to doctor during a chat.

From her description, what we can understand is that when the Chernobog incident just happened, Mephisto had gathered all students from neighbouring areas together, and even converted some children of nobles to their cause.

With so many students gathered together, together with fermenting unrest and fear, it culminated into a tragedy and Rosa had played an inglorious part in it.

And after escaping the school, they spent some time in the half ruined ghost town of Chernobog trying to survive for a while. Until Rhodes Island’s Amiya got intelligence and rescued them.

All these sound appalling, and one might question her credibility when she says it for the first time. But the key points of her descriptions are:

They were locked into Peterheim High two days after Chernobog had completely controlled by the exercise. The date is coincidental with the exercise of the known Chernobog incident.

Mephisto completely did not interfere with the actions of the students when he controlled the schools. He only did not allow students to leave the schools. To outsiders, his objective is obviously to hope to ferment the unrest in the students. This heinous methods matches from what we know of them.

When the exercise loosened control over the schools, it also matches what was heard from Amiya who met Mephisto while saving Doctor: thinking that Mephisto left after hearing news of Rhodes Island. From there, the tragedy could not be stopped. He saw what he wanted to see, and loosening control over the schools is reasonable.

From her, Peterheim High School does exist in Chernobog, and it was close to their rescue place. Where it was not affected by the Catastrophe.

Hold on.

Combining several factors, we can only believe, that Chernobog’s incident could still have such a scene when labelled as a tragedy.

And regarding the experiences of the self-governing group’s other members, Rosa expressed that as she joined the self-governing group late, she did not understand much. As for the parts about her, she shows that she will not say it out. For her to tell these experiences by herself, on one hand, it is to show trust towards Rhodes Island and Doctor. On the other hand, it is because she thinks that in the self-governing group, she is the most suited to become a ‘traitor’ to say all these. She hopes that Doctor can do something she cannot: help her comrades.

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.

Rhodes Island has gathered many operators from various countries and occupations. A interlude happened when Rosa came with the Ursus Student Self-governing group to Rhodes Island.

Because she is a pureblood Ursus noble.

There is a truth that must be emphasised: Politics, economics, property, technology, war etcetera, these are everlasting topics. And in these topics, there is a term that cannot be unravelled: Nobles.

Like the second archives, as mobile cities expanded, the older nobles seemed to have disappeared from the stage of politics. In actuality, in Ursus, they have yet to leave the historical stage.

Of course this has nothing to do with civiilians. An Ursus pureblood with exposure to elite education can never join an organisation like Rhodes Island. They are high above the others, possess wealth and cities, and all suffering has nothing to do with them.

When Rosa officially started working for the Logistics Department, her performance can be described as ‘She was trying to make herself into not a noble.’ You can see that she is still not adjusted to lowering her poise, but she is adjusting to this life.

Because, whether infected or not, most people do not like nobles, especially Ursus ones.

But Rosa already did not mind where she belongs. To outside objections, she tolerates in silence, and smiles while shaking her head. But she has never stopped the work in her hands.

And this kind of thing should not happen at Rhodes Island, and never. To Amiya, or operators who apologise to Rosa, it is like this.

Rosa, her honesty, her self-blame, her confusion… To Rhodes Island, Rosa joining them is not something new.

Today is also a new day on this land.

Promotion Record

Upgrade to Elite LV2.

Rosa’s weapon, strictly speaking is not a weapon, and should not be used as a weapon.

Actually it is a miniature siege equipment. It is frequently used in naval warfare and larger ones can determine the distance between both parties.

According to Rosa’s description, this was something she found in Chernobog while roaming around after they left school. Although it was unusable then, but they used it as a kind of threatening self-protection measures. It is hard to imagine an equipment used for sieges can appear in the city. If its story was known, then a chaotic corner or Chernobog then can be seen.

But no matter what, at the request of Rosa, it has been modified by Vulcan. It has been given a new lease of life, and has become a far range weapon suited for Rosa to use.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant Being able to help Doctor is my honour.
Talk 1 I once naively thought that if I wanted anything, I could get it. Now I know that even if most things are like that, but some things are not like that. Then I can only depend on myself, to get something that I can never get no matter what.
Talk 2 No matter what kind of work it is, let me try it. It’s alright, after experiencing something like that, the status of a noble, already does not matter most. I am now like Zima and company, just normal students who are being protected.
Talk 3 Doctor, if you want to understand what happened at Chernobog, I might be able to give you a unique perspective. Although I am a student, but you know, the president of the student council can always perceive things in adult society in advance.
Talk after Promotion 1 A person who rejects numbing their entertainment to pursue knowledge like Istina is rare, also seldom seen even in a noble school I used to attend in the past. If she was classmates with me then… No, thinking about this now is meaningless.
Talk after Promotion 2 Hating everything because of a tragedy, and loving everything because of a comedy, how one-sided--- right? Doctor, have you decided how to face everything? And how should I face it? I am already somehow confused.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 Doctor, I have a presumptuous request. Can you please keep an eye on… the mental condition of Zima and company? They look like they have adjusted to their current life, but I know, actually no. Even I myself, will think of those times from time to time…
Talk after Trust Increase 2 Doctor, can you understand, although I can say I am a victim, but I know, that any time, I have wallowed once. At some time, I had unknowingly stood on the side of the perpetrators, I am… forever unable to forgive myself.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Doctor, after becoming an adult, would you forget more easily? If I became an adult, can I forgive myself? When I become a mature adult like Doctor, can I properly settle the feelings that I hate in my heart?
Idle Doctor’s look when sleeping… is kind of cute.
Onboard Hello, Doctor. Please allow me to once again express my thanks to Rhodes Island. Thank you all for taking in my friends and I. I have rested long enough at the Logistics Department. Now let me do the same thing as Zima and company.
Watching Battle Record I should also get used to the battlefield.
Promotion 1 Looks like my experience from the student council is applied in the work of adults. It cannot get any better than this.
Promotion 2 Regarding what I should do, regarding the future, regarding myself, I have many uncertainties. The more I think, the more I do not understand. However, I am still young and I have time to think. Is that right, Doctor?
Added to Squad Let’s test the results of training.
Appointed as Squad Leader I will do my best.
Depart Everyone, let’s set off.
