Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Trait: Gains HP with every attack
+ Talent: increase ASPD based on % of HP lost
+ Powerful 4* Enmity Guard and one of the best 1v1 operators in the game, able to do Arts DPS rivaling a 6*
+ S2: one of the strongest on-deploy skills in the game
= She doesn't passively heal when not blocking enemies, unlike hellagur, so damage she takes sticks around longer
= S2: By losing 50% HP on deploy she can potentially get overwhelmed immediately if placed on top of a hard hitting enemy.
- S2: Compared to other Operators with on-deploy Skills, she has a long re-deploy time and a high DP Cost
- Trait: Can't be healed directly (passive regeneration abilities work)

Operator Overview

Utage is a girl who isn’t afraid to try new things. Her particular sphere of knowledge is fashion, but after she became infected with Oripathy on an ill-fated school trip, she decided to try something new: using her Originium-enhanced powers to help Rhodes Island. Having developed a unique fighting style as a 4 Enmity Guard, she now brings DPS, survival, and a Gothic flair to the Doctor’s lineup.

Enmity Guards have the Trait of not being able to receive healing from allies (except with some rare mechanics such as Perfumer’s Talent). To make up for this, they recover HP when attacking and have Talents and/or Skills that make them stronger as their HP falls. Utage’s Talent, Serious Mode, increases her attack speed as her HP falls. The lower her HP, the faster she attacks, and the faster she attacks, the more quickly she recovers HP—a feedback loop working in Utage’s favor. Her Skill 1, Space Out, is a defense mechanism: Utage stops attacking and her Block becomes 0, but her DEF is massively increased and she recovers a large chunk of HP over a few seconds. This Skill allows Utage to heal up in between enemy waves, avoid enemies that are too much for her to handle, or act as an effective ranged physical damage soak. On the other hand, Descending Strike - Earth Splitter is an offensive Skill that triggers immediately when she is deployed. Utage’s current HP is cut in half (triggering her Talent), her ATK increases, and her attacks change to Arts damage, giving her a massive on-deploy power boost.

Like other Enmity Guards, Utage can be very self-sufficient, but her Trait can also be a double-edged sword. Not being able to be directly healed by other Operators severely limits the amount of damage Utage can safely handle. Her high DP cost hampers the usability of Descending Strike - Earth Splitter; since it triggers on deployment and doesn’t last very long, you’ll have to retreat and redeploy Utage if you want the benefits again, which quickly becomes an expensive prospect. Weaknesses aside, Utage can be a good counter to enemy Casters due to her high HP and ability to ignore ground units with Space Out, and the enormous Arts-Assassin power of Descending Strike - Earth Splitter should not be underestimated. She’s not ideal in all situations, but Utage can be a potent asset to a Doctor who is willing to invest in her education.

Base Skill Analysis

Is it worth E2 for the RIIC Skill?  Maybe.  Utage's E0 RIIC Skill is +40% to the HR office, which is already a very good Skill, and +20% Clue search speed makes her a good option for the Reception Room as well, especially if you don't have Operators with higher clue finding skills (see the list of best Clue finders in our Reception Room Guide).  Combined with her excellent battlefield performance, Utage is an excellent, versatile choice for E1 promotion for gameplay reasons as well.

Profile

An ordinary student from Higashi who came to study in Lungmen, Utage contracted Oripathy after getting pulled into an incident with Infected persons. After coming to Rhodes Island per physician's advice, Utage passed the evaluation to become an Operator.
She is level-headed in her view of Oripathy, living life largely the same as before she became Infected. However, when she is working, she exhibits a terrifying demeanor.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging tests reveal blurry outlines of this operator's internal organs, clouded with abnormal dark spots. Her circulatory system shows an abnormally high rate of Originium particulate matter, with other signs of Oripathy infection, we can confirm that the Operator is Infected.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 2%
Operator Utage is Infected, but has no external signs of infection.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.18u/L
Operator Utage rarely comes in contact with Originium. Please maintain that situation.

This exchange student from Higashi loves to eat, chases the latest fashion trends, and likes to have a good time. After contracting Oripathy after getting caught up in an incident, she came to Rhodes Island in accordance with her physician's advice. At first, a non-combat role was planned for her based upon her complete lack of combat experience, but during the evaluation, she demonstrated a considerable talent for fighting. After some discussion, the examiner decided to let her participate in some field missions. Of course, the bulk of her work will still be non-combat related, such as logistics or HR work more suitable for someone her age.

Utage revels in the challenge of new things. As fashion is constantly shifting and lines up with her interests, she naturally pays more attention to these things. Over time, she has become a bit of an authority. What company is gearing up to release a new product, and how does its prospects on the market look? She always has her finger on the pulse of new information, and is ready to share it with any nearby Operators who are interested. Thanks to her, the average fashionability of the Operators here has improved greatly, but their wallets have been proportionally flattened.

I must note that Utage is very good at disguising and manipulating her mental state. As a result, conventional psychological monitoring methods are not reliable in her case. In addition to her strong psychological qualities, I also believe that her race has something to do with the phenomenon. Indeed, we have no idea what her race is, nor do any of the other Operators from Higashi. And unless she decides to disclose this information herself, we might have to commit a lot of effort into this question... Wait, you mean, her blade? Hmm.... perhaps there is a lot we can learn from her blade. This line of tracking may well be more successful than other alternatives. Understood, I'll get in touch with Vulcan. Once I have the information, I'll enter it into the database and make it available to you.

"You're back? Did you get it done? I see. Still couldn't find anything, huh? Guess that's not unexpected... Hey, s-stop hitting me, it's my bad, so stop already!"
"I know you had good intentions and wanted the Doctor to get to know each Operator better. However, everyone has their own secrets, right? For example, you wouldn't want everyone to find out right now that you're planning to propose to your girlfriend and have an engagement ring in a compartment in your desk. Oh, how'd I find out? Well, uh, ahahaha."
"What's important is not to air out every nitty gritty detail about an Operator's life, but rather to determine whether or not they are trustworthy, and assign them accordingly. That's already enough. Utage deserves the Doctor's trust, as well as ours, but she may never decide to trust us with her secrets. As for the Doctor, perhaps she will eventually open up, given the right time and place."

[Excerpts from an Encrypted Channel - Regarding Utage]
"If you want to know what's 'in' with the chicks, then you've come to the right place."

"She's really good at creating a laid-back atmosphere."

"She always has her finger on the pulse. Whenever something limited edition hits the market, she's on top of it right away. Being able to strike a business deal was super lucky."

"D-did she just give me an evil eye? I could feel shivers going down my spine..."

"I can't figure out what that kid is thinking."

"When she smiles like that, yes, those vibes, now that's a bit interesting."

"That's just me faking it~ I don't mind teaching you if you want to learn."
