Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Very very high damage potential
+ Very high HP
+ Skills: A strong defensive (S1) and offensive option (S2) that scale well with development and Regen HP
+ Talent: Passive HP Regen and Physical Dodge while Skills are active
= Extremely rare, recruitment only Operator
- Can't be healed directly, though passive regen works (e.g. Perfumer's Talent)
- Very high Deployment Cost
- Relatively low DEF for a Defender, which can cause problems in tough content.

Operator Overview

“Only weapons that are never in use will remain undamaged. Therefore, leaving a weapon spotless is actually the worst sacrilege for it.”

The single-minded blacksmith who takes care of all of Rhodes Island’s weaponry and tactical gear, Vulcan rarely gets close to anybody. However, if you’re able to find her through Recruitment (the only way she can be obtained,) she’ll fight for you as a 5★ Enmity Defender of uncommon strength and skill, excelling in both Defense and DPS.

A quick note about getting Vulcan: She can only be gained through Recruitment, and she is very rare and hard to get. See our Operator Recruitment Guide or Recruit Tag Filter for more details. 

Vulcan’s body has been replaced with so many prosthetic parts that she cannot be healed by other Operators (except some very rare cases like Perfumer’s Talent). Don’t worry, though; she takes care of herself with her sky-high stats and her Talent, Self-Defense, which regenerates her HP and (at E2) gives her Physical Dodge while either of her Skills is active. Guardian Mode is her Skill 1, increasing her Block number, her DEF, and the amount of HP she regenerates. This Skill is incredible for defensive purposes, not just for the survivability but for the rare and much-coveted “Block +1” quality. However, her Skill 2 is no less tempting: Combat Mode increases her ATK, restores HP when she attacks, and allows her to hit as many enemies as she can Block. (It also sets her hammer on fire, which is hardcore.) Though this Skill also has the downsides of reducing her Block by 1 and slowing the attack interval of her hits, it’s still a massive increase in DPS and well worth using.

Vulcan’s main draw is her self-sufficiency, but keep in mind that it’s not a bonus: it’s a necessity. The fact that other Operators can’t heal her is a big drawback for a Defender Operator who’s meant to soak damage. If you trigger Vulcan’s Skills at the wrong time and waste her healing, you may end up watching her die without being able to do anything about it. She is also one of the most DP-expensive units to deploy in the entire game, and you won’t be reducing her DP cost with Potential anytime soon because of how rare she is. Since she is only accessible through very specific tag combinations in Recruitment (or incredible luck), plenty of Doctors never even realize she exists, let alone pull multiple copies of her. 

However, if you’re fortunate enough to stumble across her required tags, don’t let her slip away from you! Vulcan is a positive steamroller of a unit, and she’s capable of herculean feats if given the right investment and team composition.

Profile

Vulcan is a blacksmith from Minos who sought treatment at Rhodes Island after contracting Oripathy, ultimately reaching an agreement to become a part of the team.
In charge of smithing and maintaining weapons for other Operators, Vulcan also goes on missions when necessary.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging test for this Operator showed blurry outline of internal organs with visible unusual dark spots. Unusually high concentration of Originium particles were present in her circulation, indicating signs of infection and confirming her as infected at this stage.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 18%
High level of infection, obvious signs of Originium episodes on face and neck.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.38u/L
Infection entering mid-stage, but currently unable to diagnose effects on the Operator.

Vulcan has an unwelcoming attitude for a lady blacksmith.
She is not even remotely interested in anything not related to weaponry, and when it comes to armaments she's only a bit more talkative than usual.
She made the smithy Rhodes Island provided her into her own bedroom, which she almost never leaves unless she's got a mission.

Archive File 2

Increase Trust to 100.
No one fights quite like Vulcan does. She relies on her dependable equipment and powerful prosthetics in combat. As such, she is constantly repairing her equipment. Gear gets damaged in battle, that's normal, but Vulcan has mastered the art of quick repair even under fire. Keeping equipment functional is essential to her battle tactics.
In contrast, most Medic Operators don't have a clue about blacksmithing.

Vulcan always says those who can't keep up with the times are doomed to obsolescence.
The march of time has changed the smithing trade from the sweaty man hitting an anvil to an advanced automation engineer creating weapons at maximum efficiency.
In Vulcan's workshop, for instance, are several of the most advanced machines on the planet that are regularly improved. It is also in this secluded corner that all weapons at Rhodes Island are refined and upgraded.

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.
Still, the most eye-catching thing in Vulcan's smithy is not any of the advanced robotic machines, but the enormous anvil and furnace. Yes, the very "obsolescence" she spoke of.
And yet, Vulcan still fires up the forge to hammer a piece of steel on the anvil, just like blacksmiths of old.
Of course, that has nothing to do with making or maintaining our weaponry, and is more like a ritual, though she has never explained its meaning.
Perhaps to her, those who can't keep up with times should become obsolete, but those who completely forsake tradition should not be called blacksmiths.
