Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Very good damage output
+ Good source of early DP makes her great for maps with fast start requirements
+ AOE Arts damage and crowd control with her S2 is very useful
+ Talent Increases your DP by 2 at the start of battle
- Dies fairly easily vs stronger enemies

Operator Overview

"We are the couriers of Life and Death."

In contrast to her many "Texas, can you do it?" memes, the Lupus Operator hides a quiet affectionate side behind her killer competence.  As the Vanguard for Penguin Logistics, Texas specializes in AoE Crowd Control (CC) and Deployment Point (DP) Recovery.  

Although she can act as a standard DP-recovery vanguard equipping Charge γ, Texas is more commonly used for her unique skill, Sword Rain.  This skill provides a large AoE guaranteed stun on command that deals Arts damage while granting DP.  Her Talent that provides extra DP at the start of the map can also be a great tool for tough content that requires fast starts.

Texas's Crowd Control provides flexible utility to the team, from buying precious time against tougher enemies or preventing Wraiths from slipping past.  The Arts Damage will make sure to hit enemies high in DEF, while the stun provides more time for allies to attack. However, using Sword Rain requires careful timing.  Outside of ideal situations where both its effects are needed, Sword Rain's Cooldown has an opportunity cost that can prove fatal if mistimed. Additionally, her defensive stats are a bit lower for Vanguards in her class, requiring careful skill usage and healing to stay alive.  Despite these downsides, the value of Crowd Control cannot be understated, making Texas a strong pick for a variety of stages.

Newbie Tier List Explanation

Can directly replace Fang, almost recovers her DP cost in less than 15 seconds, and gives +1 initial DP (2 at E2) just by being in squad.

Elite Promotion Discussion

Texas’ E2 promotion enhances her ability to handle fast starting Operations.  Her Talent, Tactical Delivery, starts the team with 2 DP at E2 (up from 1 at E1).  Although this doesn’t seem like much, it can make all the difference when it is needed. 

Skill Discussion

Skill
Mastery
Story
Advanced
Roguelike
S2M1 Breakpoint
S2M3 B S- C+

Texas gains an extension on her stun at M1 which is incredibly powerful for the cost. Beyond that, Advanced players will want to prioritize the M3 quite highly as she reliably appears in end game situations thanks to her near instant activation with Bagpipe. Story players though may find M2-M3 very lackluster for the cost, so passing on further mastery in favor of other options is probably a good idea, especially if you do not also have Bagpipe to enable the rapid activation. Roguelike players will also likely want to pass as she is a fairly weak pick for the Vanguard tickets.

Base Skill Analysis

Texas gains her second RIIC Skill at Elite 2.

Her Skill 1 Trading Post buff is one of the highest in the game when paired with Lappland.   She is part of the Holy Trinity of Trading Post Maximization: Exusiai, Texas, and Lappland. She is a strong Vanguard worth E2ing eventually for the gameplay gains as well.

Profile

Texas is a Penguin Logistics staff member who is extraordinarily skilled in single combat. She was sent to Rhodes Island as a liaison, where she assists with a variety of operations.

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 Texas showed no symptoms of Oripathy.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.12u/L
Operator Texas sometimes delivers packages with Originium content, but it has not caused infection to date.

Archive File 1

Increase Trust to 50.
A taciturn messenger.
According to her own account, she's not hiding anything, just has nothing to say.
Though she gives off the impression being a loner, she is often seen with her fellow Penguin Logistics employees.

Archive File 2

Increase Trust to 100.
While Texas may be quiet, her fighting style is anything but. It's best described as tempestuous.
At Rhodes Island, Operators without formal training are actually the majority, but when it comes to the use of weapons, most will follow established protocols. Texas, however, doesn't.
While she is a bit more reserved now, one can still see vestiges of an idea that she herself might not be aware of - her belief that the singular purpose of all weaponry is to kill.

Archive File 3

Increase Trust to 150.
Her Lupo origin, her conspicuous fur color, her notable combat style, and of course, her name, all point to her ties with the faded Texas family, a once-famous clan whose name is now forgotten to most.
If that's the case, Texas's past is probably astonishing beyond imagination, as indicated by the Texas name itself.
On the one hand, even with Rhodes Island's intel network, very little is known about the family's fate. On the other hand, Texas never felt the need to elaborate on her past, so there isn't a pressing need to delve into it. After all, her past may one day catch up to her, just as she predicts.

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.
Although Texas never discusses her past, that's not the same as actively avoiding the topic. It's more like apathy.
From the way she has adapted to her current life, it's obvious she isn't running from anything. Routine work, bickering colleagues, Lungmen, and Rhodes Island are now everything to her.
We could sum it up like this:
When the past does catch up to her, she will face it with composure--unless it disrupts her present, then we'll witness the genuine rage inside her.

Promotion Record

Upgrade to Elite LV2.
Texas is a handful. Even when she lets you get close, she won't spare more than a few words. It took me a long time to figure out whether we were cool or not.
Sigh. Anyone trying to be her friend is in for a reckoning.

Description:
Texas is often one of the very first Operators to plunge into the battlefield. With the help of her abilities, we can construct our first defensive line and hasten conducting other Operators to their positions, her Originium Arts-suffused Sword Rain frequently able to impede enemies within a large range. Pay close attention to the battlefield, deploy her to an appropriate location, and she won't disappoint you.
