RIIC Base Skills
Botzu's Quick Evaluation
+ Decent single target Caster who will always go for high DEF first
+ Good when overwhelmed by mobs hiding a tank, or when you want to take down a high-DEF drone, since he will target them first
+ Good Skill
- Everyone gets Amiya, who is a better general-purpose single target Caster.
“Caster Steward reporting in. I’m glad to be working with you.”
Guide, servicer, and part-time model (no, seriously, check his bio), Steward isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. In fact, this is his biggest advantage on the battlefield. Steward looks like an ordinary DPS Caster at first glance, but his Talent, Armor Break, inspires him to specifically target the highest-DEF enemy in his range. This is valuable because Arts damage ignores DEF, and so high-DEF targets are usually the ones you want your Casters to attack first.
Steward’s kit is beautifully simple. His Armor Break Talent gives him a passive ATK buff and inspires his unique A.I. targeting. Then, every few seconds, his Power Strike α Skill automatically amps up the damage of his next strike. Together, this means his DPS is quite a bit higher than his base ATK power would suggest, and his A.I. means he’s usually going to be leveraging it on the best targets in his range.
Targeting alone does not a strong Caster make, however. You can make any Caster target a high-DEF enemy simply by killing everything else first. Steward’s unique A.I. is usually only important when a high-DEF enemy (i.e., an armored drone) sneaks up to you amidst a bunch of other foes, and you need that enemy to die right away. In most other cases, Steward’s limited potential (as a 3* unit, he lacks an E2 promotion) makes other Casters a stronger choice. However, when his specialty is needed, he can be quite uniquely useful to your strategy.
Plus, who doesn’t want that killer smile in their lineup? No wonder he’s a model!
Newbie Tier List Explanation
You'll want to E1 him for the base anyways, and his targeting ensures he hits the units that you actually want your Caster to attack.
Base Skill Analysis
Steward gains his second RIIC Skill upon reaching Elite 1.
Is it worth it? Yes. A solid factory buff, and his first Skill isn’t very useful. If you are running 2-5-2 or 1-5-3 you will want this for sure. Like Spot, Steward will pay for himself in under a month - not to mention his combat abilities could potentially be useful as a niche low-rarity Operator due to his unique talent.

|Appointed as Assistant||Welcome back, Doctor. Steward at your service.|
|Talk 1||Steward is my last name, as well as my code name as an Operator. My surname shows what my ancestors did for a living.|
|Talk 2||I didn't expect to meet someone from my race here. Is that kid looking for someone? I know how it feels... Oh, it's nothing.|
|Talk 3||People often say our fur has the 'color of snow.' Doctor, have you ever seen snow?|
|Talk after Promotion 1||Ms. Lava has a very distinct fighting style. I thought she was going to cast with her book, but her real casting tool was a dagger. Her style reminds me of the psychic who taught me Arts.|
|Talk after Trust Increase 1||It is my honor to work for you, Doctor. I do hope you can find it in yourself to treat Ms. Melantha better. She's alone all the time...|
|Talk after Trust Increase 2||Adnachiel is a mysterious one... No one can tell what he is thinking.|
|Talk after Trust Increase 3||Ansel... Don't worry. I stopped caring about my identity as an Infected long ago. In fact, I received a lot of help because of it. Before the Infection takes away what's dear to me, I will use it to create a place where everyone can live in peace.|
