Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ E2 Talent: Recover 1 SP when enemies die adjacent
+ Great stats all around
+ Strong AOE physical damage with S2
+ Talent: Buffs all Vanguards
= S3 provides stun and very high single target damage (but no DP recovery)
- DP cost too high to place first in some missions without Texas and/or Zima

Operator Overview

“Your false bravado will do nothing to stop my assault.”

Verna, codenamed 'Siege', leader of the Glasgow (a squad of former street punks), has a fierce and reckless battle style.  Her natural command, courage, and composure have made her one of the most sought-after Vanguards at Rhodes Island. Siege is a well rounded DP-Recovery and DPS Vanguard that can block 2 enemies

Fitting of a leader, Siege sports a synergistic kit providing offense, defense and support. Her King of Beasts talent buffs all other Vanguards' Attack and Defense by up to 10%, making her great for starting strong and in battles with multiple Vanguards. Her second talent Obliterate gives one SP for each enemy that dies adjacent to Siege, a potentially powerful tool for ramping up DP gain with her first two skills.

Siege has two forms of DP-Recovery. Charge 𝝲 is the standard passive DP-Recovery Skill that provides DP over time.  Her second Skill, however, is what makes Siege stand out as the Leader of the Vanguard Pack.  Aerial Hammer deals huge physical AoE damage to adjacent enemies and instantly provides 3 DP.  With 3 charges at max level, a very low SP cost, and supercharged by her Talent, this is the core of Siege's DPS and DP-Recovery engine and is her most commonly used Skill.

Her 3rd Skill, Skull Crusher, takes the VAN out of Vanguard, and turns Siege into a Guard with a damage buff and a stun, at the cost of an increased Attack Interval.  Although it allows her to fare much better against strong enemies, there is no DP Recovery with this Skill, which is generally what Vanguards are relied on to provide.

Siege’s very high HP and Defense stats make her one of the most durable Vanguards, but this also contributes to one of her biggest weaknesses: she has a much higher deployment cost relative to lower rarity operators who fill a similar role.   Once deployed, however, Siege is a complete-package Vanguard that provides high DP-Recovery, strong AoE damage, and excellent defense, which will be well worth her higher DP cost. This lion will roar on any battlefield.

Elite Promotion Discussion

  • 3rd Skill - Skull Breaker - Did you ever wish that Siege had skipped the VAN and was just a Guard?  Well, this Skill makes it happen. She gains a large multiplicative Attack boost and a decent duration Stun (useful defensively against hard hitting enemies) in exchange for almost doubling her Attack Interval.   It has good duration and cooldown and can be used quickly after deployment at high levels.  The drawback here is that it has no DP recovery, which is one of the main reasons to use a Vanguard.  You don’t like that Siege wants to switch jobs? Complain to the lion.

  • Talent 2 - Crushing - This is one of the reason to E2 Siege from a Vanguard performance perspective.  It gives her an extra Skill Point when an enemy is killed in an adjacent tile. When combined with Skill 2, it can enable some crazy Skill spam and DP gain shenanigans.

  • Talent 1 upgrade - King of Beasts - Useful for supporting Vanguard Team memes, but outside of that it’s a fine boost for Vanguards but a low overall impact.

Profile

Verna, codenamed Siege, citizen of Victoria, most records unavailable except for several unproven charges. Outstanding performance in assault, siege, and hard target missions. Admitted to Rhodes Island after excellent scores in multiple tests. Currently a vanguard and the captain of a Rhodes Island squad.

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%
Siege shows no symptoms of Oripathy.

Blood Originium-Crystal Density: 0.14u/L
Due to Siege's peculiar pattern of activity, her risk of infection rises daily. Preventative measures are advised.

Siege is currently in excellent physical condition. Her physique, by way of a rigorous training regimen, is more than suited to the needs of Rhodes Island. Her fierce and sometimes reckless close quarters combat style has the medical staff very concerned about her frequent contact with the Infected... Very concerned.
—Medic Operator Myrrh

Increase Trust to 50.
Siege leads a gang called Glasgow.
The Operators at Rhodes Island figured these former Londinium street punks must have fled and were forced to come to the Island, so expectations were low.
But when Siege and her gang underwent physical evaluation, the Operators discovered they weren't common thugs, but remarkably competent soldiers.
The medical staff even expressed doubt about their alleged background, as their incredible fighting skills went far beyond what one would expect from the hardships of the street.
However, Siege's assertion that they really did lead a rather normal life in Londinium rang sincere and true.
Mutual trust is the first step in building a friendship, so the Operators chose to take Siege's word for it. Trust is the foundation upon which Rhodes Island was built, and how she gathered her crew of outstanding Operators.

Increase Trust to 100.
Siege has a deep bond with every member of the Glasgow Gang, evident in their daily interactions and chemistry in battle.
Siege never stops at "good enough". She does her best to complete every assignment Rhodes Island sends her way. Her assertiveness and courage on a mission, as well as composure and wits in solving problems, have made her one of the most favored Vanguards on staff.
The natural command and strategic ability that Siege embodies have saved many teammates and missions.
Siege is normally very polite, which belies the fact she was a gangster. This, however, also made many Operators keep their distance and slow to form a friendship, though they still hold her in high regard.

Increase Trust to 150.
Of course, everyone in the Glasgow Gang holds their own opinions about Siege, but they have one opinion in common: Siege is not deliberately keeping her distance from other Operators, it's just an aloof attitude she has when dealing with people, sometimes to the point of seeming too lazy to try.
Then, when the Glasgow gangsters filled out their paperwork, they revealed more interesting tidbits about Siege, such as the fact that she doesn't like potatoes, sleeps longer than most people, and always carries pungently sour lollipops on her.
But they never mentioned anything about Londinium. Even when the topic came up in casual conversation, they would deftly skip over it. In addition, they seldom talk about how they met Siege.
Siege, however, said she clearly remembers defeating Indra from the gang. She makes a point to remember every meeting, every action, and every word of those she interacts with.
Many Operators believe that she deserves to lead, and that Rhodes Island needs to make a more pointed effort to understand Siege.

[Classified Log]
They've come to Rhodes Island, the Glasgow Gang, visitors from Londinium.
The leader, the kid named Verna, is too young. She hasn't learned to conceal herself, just painting a cover story about getting mixed up with some street crowd, when her behavior clearly gave it away.
She didn't realize I could tell "who" she is just by looking, or rather, "what" she is.
And if I could, so could somebody else. She's running from something.
The great Victoria is splintering. Every province is ignoring the dark cloud over Londinium. I think I can even guess who runs Londinium now.
The gears have begun to turn. The decaying clock will finally strike twelve.

Amiya is not ready yet.

—Kal'tsit

Appointed as Assistant You're still not done assigning tasks? I'll wait a bit longer then.
Talk 1 Keep calm and carry on.
Talk 2 Our meals used to be pretty nice in the past... but the quality's gone downhill since we joined Indra's group.
Talk 3 I had a dream... a dream where the sun rises, and in the distance beyond the horizon... there was my hometown. The place I'll probably never get to return to ever again.
Talk after Promotion 1 Before I knew it, I'd become accustomed to this nomadic life... It's really strange. My past self never imagined this is how I'd end up.
Talk after Promotion 2 Gawain and company? I wouldn't say they ran into me, it's more like they picked me up from the streets.
Talk after Trust Increase 1 I used to stand side by side with Indra and her team when we fought on the streets of Victoria... Looking back at it, I guess that's a rather fond memory to me.
Talk after Trust Increase 2 Stay on your guard! I know you're already on high alert, but something outside our control could always happen when there's so few of us.
Talk after Trust Increase 3 If we're ever driven into a corner, then... I have a plan B ready. Should that happen, Doctor, you can be my... You know what, never mind.
