Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Talent: Passively increases the DEF of allies within range
+ S3: Operators can tank Physical Damage with ease (outside a certain future event)
+ Enables Healing Defenders (which usually don't have large/any Defense boosts) to survive harder hitting enemies
+ Prevents your Defenders from getting 1-shot by some bosses if you are under-leveled
- As the team gets stronger and survivability becomes less of an issue, the other utility/support based healers become more appealing.
- DEF buffs don't help against Arts Damage.

Operator Overview

In order to bring salvation to those in pain, one must be ready to make the ultimate sacrifice.” 

This enigmatic Sarkaz healer has earned the admiration and respect of her fellow Operators for her empathy, dedication, and passion for the protection of life. Shining is a 6★ single-target Medic who specializes in powerful healing and DEF support

Her Talent, Black Fiend's Protection, as well as her second and third Skill, all provide DEF buffs to her allies. Auto-Protect places a temporary shield on Shining’s healing target, increasing the Operator’s DEF and absorbing damage for a short time. The Skill also holds multiple charges as it levels, so Shining can build charges of Auto-Protect between enemy waves to blunt the next wave's initial assault. Her third Skill, Creed Field, greatly increases the DEF of allies in her range for a considerable amount of time. This Skill can be used quickly after deployment, has a long duration, and provides a considerable boost to healing strength, making it a great burst option for emergency situations or when fighting bosses. If the Doctor wants to use Shining in a non-DEF situation, her first Skill, Creed, significantly increases her healing power and gives her a small speed bonus.

Shining is a premier tank healer, and her DEF-enhancing support is great against most enemies in the game. Combined with her ability to quickly throw out very large heals, she excels at keeping frontline Operators alive. Her amazing abilities come at a cost, though--specifically, her DP cost, which is quite high. It should also be noted that Shining’s DEF buffs do nothing against enemies who deal Arts damage. Despite this, having Skills for both sustained and burst healing makes Shining a great Medic in any mission. Invest in this Sarkaz healer, and she will absolutely shine on the battlefield.

Elite Promotion Discussion

  • 3rd Skill - Creed Field - A huge Defense buff to all Allies within her range and an ok output buff.  On top of an impressive 60 second duration (almost as impressive as her summer skin),  this is a really amazing Skill for supporting your blocking Operators against hard- hitting physical attackers.  A crazy-long cooldown, being limited to allies within her range, and not doing anything to mitigate Arts damage limit its overall usefulness to more niche situations.  Also, her buff is additive to the +DEF provided by Defender Skills and Talents and not multiplicative (for those of us allergic to Math: that is a bad thing).  That being said, the majority of enemies deal physical damage, so this is not a Skill that should be ignored.

  • Talent 2 - Code of Law - An ok attack speed buff that improves her throughput and is welcome since Medics have long Attack Intervals.

  • Talent 1 upgrade - Black Fiend’s Protection - An improvement to the flat Defense increase.

Skill Discussion

Skill 2 - Auto Protect (M3) - Auto Protect gains a third charge when fully specialized, and the HP Shield % and DEF % modifiers increase to 50% from 35%. It is not as game-changing as specializing DPS units since most maps don’t need so much healing, but it can be a decent endgame min/max for whales.

Profile

Shining is a Sarkaz medic, a former member of the Sarkaz medic group "Confessor" and current member of the infected assistance group, "Followers". She is an authority in fields such as Originium Arts, field medicine, medical theories, and clinical medicine.
She is now a Medic Operator at Rhodes Island, contributing her knowledge on Originium Arts theories and providing medical support for many an operation.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging tests reveal 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 is believed to be non-infected.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 0%
Operator Shining shows no signs of Oripathy.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.1u/L
Shining frequently visits areas with high rates of Oripathy, but so far seems unaffected.

Archive File 1

Increase Trust to 50.
Operator Shining has great expertise in medical Originium. She has offered numerous theories to the Rhodes Island medical department that advanced knowledge regarding Originium.
According to Shining, she pioneered the field with her colleagues to alleviate the pain of the Infected. Her empathy and dedication has earned her the admiration of many of her fellow Operators.
Further observations suggest she could possibly offer even more with her Originium Arts... As battle reports indicated, Shining not just could heal hurt Operators, but also "protect" them from combat damage with Originium Arts.
Any specific conclusions must await further research by Caster Operators.

Archive File 2

Increase Trust to 100.
It is said that Operator Shining would demonstrate certain unique Originium Arts in private gatherings. It was described as a warm glow moving slowly in a dark room before gradually expanding, then even dancing on the wall and changing color. The performance seemed to captivate the children at Rhodes Island.
Compared to the radiant light emitted by Nearl and other Operators, Shining's glow appeared more solid and tangible.
As for the nature of the aura, why she left her own kind, what has she been through emotionally, what is the Sarkaz's role in various political bodies and similar questions, Shining always declined to answer.

[Debriefing Sec-J12]
Let me tell you...
Shining's healing expertise in no way means she's your typical frail medical genius.
True, no one saw her in actual combat. Yes, she seemed warm and gentle like sunset, and even a bit lonely... Very much unlike a warrior, right?
You must all feel she's incredible only in resolve and medical skills? Perhaps that she possessed Originium Arts of a different kind? That must be what you're thinking, since that's what you've ever seen her do.
But I must you, she is the mightiest swordfighter I've ever seen.
I know, I know, several commandos and rather reckless people are great swordfighter.
However, I'm telling you, Shining doesn't take a backseat to any of them. No way. I was foolish to assume what she has in her hand all the time is a normal Arts staff...
I don't know why she doesn't use a sword. Her expression was... loathing? As if blades disgusted her, or maybe she was disgusted to wield a blade... I'm not sure.
Anyway, she has been hiding her sword skills from Rhodes Island.
Proof?
I'm still alive and here for the debriefing, isn't that proof enough? Why would I lie?
Let's put it this way, sunset wasn't just a metaphor.
I suspect she could turn bright daylight into night in an instant.
Yeah, that's a hyperbole, but you don't get that how I feel right now!
At the time, I was severely wounded, just barely able to lift my head. I saw her interposing herself in front of a platoon of heavily armed enemies.
......To save the rest of us who were felled by the ambush.
Just her alone.
I'm thinking this isn't the first time it has happened.
Honestly, it happened in a flash, like her name.

——A surviving Operator of a classified mission.

Such a story... You should treat it as hallucinatory side effect of my healing Arts.

——Shining's response to the log

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.

The "Confessor" is a secret Sarkaz organization. Even I don't have much intel on them.
It's impossible for Shining to be a mundane Sarkaz traveling healer, judging by her reaction upon meeting Amiya for the first time: subtle, but conspicuous, when it's common knowledge among humans.
So, on which side does she stand?
The Redeemers are not a simple Sarkaz outfit like she made it out to be. If another so-called Redeemer crisis should arise, is she tight enough with us for her to merely stand by, or even fight alongside us?
Her past must be as enigmatic as her emotions. It's impossible to try to figure her out solely based upon her behavior.
Maybe we could learn her true thoughts if someone like the Doctor can get her to lower her guard.
Anyone who could understand her, I'm sure, would never divulge any of her secrets to any agency.

——Kal'tsit

Promotion Record

Upgrade to Elite LV2.

Miss Shining's statement in her debate with Dr. Kal'tsit in the medical department is allegedly something that many Medic Operators have taken to heart.
"Few things are more important to Rhodes Island than the dedication and reliability of its Operators. Likewise, few things are more important to medics than patients who value their own lives."
It very well reflected the wish of many medical staff that their patients recognize just how precious life is while undergo treatment.
Miss Shining not only wants to save those fighting to live, but to also protect them. To her, healing and protection are perhaps one and the same.

Voice Lines

Appointed as Assistant Greetings, Doctor... Is there anything you'd like to discuss?
Talk 1 You look quite pale. You say your... chest hurts? Don't overwork yourself, please get some rest immediately. Don't be afraid, I'm right beside you. Everything is okay...
Talk 2 You've seen my healing Arts somewhere before? You must be imagining things. That's almost certainly the case...
Talk 3 The Confessor...? How do you know his name? Sorry, this is a topic I don't wish to discuss...
Talk after Promotion 1 We Sarkaz combined our inherent Arts affinity with the power of Originium to develop new healing Arts, which we've been using for quite some time to tend to refugees.
Talk after Promotion 2 Now? We have nothing left now. The war bereaved us of all hope.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 My relation with Nearl? Certainly... She's a travel companion, and someone I trust with my own life.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 In order to bring salvation to those in pain, one must be ready to make the ultimate sacrifice. That's the kind of person Nearl is.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 Once upon a time, I dedicated my life to following someone who shone so brightly in my eyes. A conspiracy took that person away from me, but this time... I'll make sure my light source continues to shine on forevermore. Even if I die...
Idle ...This silence reminds me of those days in my hometown.
Onboard I am Shining, roaming medic. You say you've seen me before? Perhaps we've passed by each other during our journeys.
Watching Battle Record Power that merely heals wounds... is not enough.
Promotion 1 I can't save everyone just by being a medic.
Promotion 2 That's right. I cannot be just a medic—I will live on as a defender. That's always been my goal. Doctor, please be a witness to this oath of mine.
Added to Squad Are we heading into battle?
Appointed as Squad Leader This is a battle for our own sakes, right?
Depart War is inevitable.
Begin Operation I hope this war will lead to salvation...
Selecting Operator 1 Let's begin.
Selecting Operator 2 Yes, I'm listening.
Deployment 1 Our choice is between prosperity or destruction.
Deployment 2 You won't suffer long.
In Battle 1 I will protect you.
In Battle 2 Don't be afraid.
In Battle 3 I'm sad that I must do this...
In Battle 4 I've never forgotten the pain.
4-star Result The stronger the enemy, the more motivated we are, and the higher our morale.
3-star Result No matter how many sins one commits, they all turn to ashes when their life ends.
Sub 3-star Result Even if we return someday, there is no salvation for anyone here.
Operation Failure Victory and loss... these are mere insignificant moments in the endless cycle.
Assigned to Facility I don't mind as long as I have a quiet place to be alone.
Tap What is it?
Trust Tap It's been a while since I've been this calm. I can even hear your heartbeat.
Title Arknights.
Greeting How are you feeling today, Doctor?
