Bethel... She's somewhat of a mystery to me.
When she first boarded the Colossus, Bethel asked us to provide her with two rooms, and before I could ask why, her assistant jumped out and explained that one of them was to be her office. I heard someone say that she needed a conference room too, but the only reason she didn't ask for one was that she wanted to avoid causing a stir. Luckily, %s's Colossus has plenty of rooms available.
Who could've guessed that Bethel would actually set up an office on the Colossus? Unless you have something vital to discuss with her, not even %s can make an appointment with Bethel... And even when you finally get a chance to see her, Bethel always seems so serious and unapproachable.
However, I was reading a book in the lounge one night when Bethel appeared behind me and tapped me on the shoulder. She then started talking all about her favorite novels and writers with the happiest look on her face! Although it was undoubtedly a very pleasant conversation, it raised a few suspicions in my mind, and I found myself wondering—was that Bethel really the same Bethel who spends all day working in her office?
So, the theme of our discussion today is life experience, is it? An interesting proposal, indeed. If we discuss only this topic, we will surely enhance our cooperation, and I am delighted to participate. Of course, I will not lie to you about anything.
I was born in... Well, it's rather embarrassing to admit... Ahem, I was born in Umbraton. My father ran a beverage business there, and my mother was a maid who worked for the Lumo nobles. In order to boost his profit margin, my father would mix strange ingredients into his drinks. The sales of these drinks skyrocketed, and even my father became addicted to those beverages. But there was a side effect of his concoctions—my father became very irritable and would treat my mother and me with utter disdain, then his attitude toward us changed completely. I don't know whether it was luck or misfortune, but he soon passed away. Mother returned to Lumopolis to continue earning money for a living, but she never came back.
This is how I became an orphan. However, my parents didn't even leave half a Nightium for me, only the remaining stock of those drinks. In order to eke out a living, I continued the family business. Of course, I didn't add a single drop of those strange ingredients, but without them, business was terrible, and I was still a child at that time, so I was often the victim of bullying.
So, I gave up on being a merchant, put on a black cloak, and reinvented myself as a supplier familiar with aristocratic drinks . Of course, I must thank my mother for giving me a Lumopolis-style noble education. Although I was armed only with rudimentary knowledge of my supposed field, business was surprisingly good after donning that black cloak. After taking daily expenses into account, I actually managed to save up quite a lot. If mother only knew, I wonder if she would've regretted her decision to leave Umbraton?
However, there is one significant expense that still takes a toll on my finances—buying books. What kind of books, you ask? Those that can soothe people's hearts and take away their pain, of course... Romance novels.
However, good times never seem to last very long. That year, Eclipsites attacked Umbraton. I was rescued by a group called the Istvan Gang, but when I returned to Umbraton, I found that all my goods had been lain to waste. Penniless again, I unexpectedly awakened my hidden ability, fueled by grief and anger... I discovered that I could summon Frankel, the protagonist's pet from my favorite novel!
Every cloud has a silver lining, and so, with Frankel at my side, I started up my business once more, mainly dependent on the Cloudrover Guild. But after getting back on track, I made a terrible mistake—I cut out the Cloudrover Guild and tried to work with their customers directly. It was only after the Cloudrover Guild cut off all ties with me that I realized my behavior had violated the trade laws of Umbraton.
Overcome with shame, I returned to the Cloudrover Guild to apologize. The guild master, Sheol, seemed surprised to see me take off my black cloak in humility. After carefully studying the trade laws, I earned Sheol's forgiveness and was allowed to work as a supplier once more.
I thought I would spend my whole life selling drinks and never suspected that earth-shaking changes were just around the corner.
One day, I unconsciously stepped into the world of black-market trading, stumbling into a dangerous underground trade. Outnumbered, gangsters knocked me out, but I found myself sleeping in a soft bed when I awakened. It turns out that after I was knocked out, the Istvan Gang rescued me. They swiftly put an end to the illicit trade I had been lured into and saved my life again. Istvan, the gang leader, came to me and told me that he had been impressed by my insight and courage. He then asked me if he could adopt me. He even said he would be willing to send me to study in Lumopolis... It sounds like the plot of a novel, but that's what really happened.
But I had only one thought in my heart—I now have a real family.
Tell me—do right and wrong exist in business?
Let me ask you this—have you ever been in love?
Nice to meet you.
Are you afraid of me?
Another rainy day...
I'm reading a book on market economy.
Do you often drink coffee in the afternoon?
Have you traveled to many places?
Have you finished reading the book I lent you?
What do you think of me?
Navigator, have you seen my books?
Another day has passed.
You accidentally receive a copy of Jane's records regarding Bethel's hobbies, and she seems intent to destroy all evidence of its existence...
Her heart has never pounded so furiously.
This is the ideal capitalist society globally, where anyone who abides by the rules can create their fortune.
Can people in Illumina really get what they desire through the rationing system alone?
The shadow is watching you.
Their emergence always disrupts the market, causing significant financial losses.
Lady Sheol is also quite brusque when it comes to matters of business... She can't help it.
Somehow, Connolly's coffee always fills me with a sense of nostalgic familiarity.
Regulated freedom and the sound of flowing money... Um... Who told you that I collect romance novels?
Dirty secrets will always eventually float up to the surface. Otherwise, I'll just dive in and drag them up myself.
If you were to use this for transportation purposes, you'd make substantial profits. Are you not going to set up your own transportation company?
Hmm... It seems you've signed some kind of contract with it.
What kind of business consultation would you like me to provide you with? Well, before that, we'd better sign a contract that we're both happy with.
Market fluctuations can be... unpredictable...
I said we'd make a profit.
Our contract will be realized.
In the new year, I hope that our cooperation continues as it has thus far.
I hope we enjoy a pleasant cooperation.
Is this... the invisible hand?
Frankel seems to like this.
I can't wait... to fight the next storm!
Transportation route, contact point, and negotiation time set... Phew, I'm finally free to have a rest. Let's take a look at my favorite book. Do you want to read it together?
This is an equitable exchange.
As long as a transaction is voluntary and fair, it should be respected and protected. So... would you like to negotiate my acquisition of the Colossus?
Demand orientation is a rule that businesspersons must always keep in mind. What demand does your industry fulfill? Please tell me.
All existence depends on rules. Whether it's law or credibility, on the surface or underground, they are the contracts you sign with the place you call home.
As a last resort, the contents of a contract can be adjusted. But you must be truthful, faithful, with integrity, and unconcealed. Otherwise, no one will be able to help you.
I know what you're looking at. It's just that refraining from looking at the tails of others is a basic rule for a person with manners.
This is Frankel. Oh, that's Frankel, too. They're my lovely specters. Of course I can tell who is who. Huh? They don't look like pets?
The black-cloaked supplier... That was my nickname back then. The nickname I held before being adopted by the Shadowlord.
I really detest certain industries... Those goods that circulate beneath the shadows... As long as they exist, I will find a way to eradicate them.
Acquisition, negotiation, financing, sales, marketing... I can help you with all of these. Or maybe you just want romance novels, like me?
Oh, look who's here. I hope that through today's talks, we can reach a consensus.
Yes, I'm still busy. I apologize—my assistant is not in. Please be sure to make an appointment first. Yes, even you, Caelestite.
Negotiations are now over. Who can take this esteemed guest home for me?
Good day, but also a busy day. Do you have any business meetings to attend?
Good morning. A cup of coffee and the newspaper—this is my morning routine.
After a hard day's work, it's always nice to read a book before going to bed. Remember to rest early.
Hmm...? You... you're still awake. What am I looking at? That's a trade secret!
Sorry for making you wait so long. I'm Bethel, head of Umbraton Guild Headquarters. If you'd like to talk to me about anything, please contact my assistant to make an appointment.
Please sign it immediately!
My mother was born in Lumopolis, and my father was a businessman. That thing destroyed my father both mentally and physically... That's why I hate this industry so much.
Some people in Umbraton would refer to me as the black-cloaked supplier. I was not very sensible back then and almost destroyed the Cloudrover Guild's system of operations.
I ended up seriously injured when attempting to act alone... As fortune would have it, I became Istvan's adopted daughter. Luckily, I now understand the necessity of rules.
Manage the team? I can do that.
The best-selling author, who is caught in a creative bottleneck, dresses up nicely, planning to wander the streets for ideas. What's the point of dressing up? Perhaps, it's because she does not want people to know that the majestic guild manager has such a "girlish" hobby in private. But be careful not to underestimate Bethel's dedication to her hobby—she is willing to risk it all just for a flash of inspiration...
+Reaches SS tier damage with proper team-building
+Low-CD Active Skill allows for consistent turn-to-turn DPR
+Very little damage goes to waste because of how Frankels spread DPR out over turns
+Significantly higher than average mobbing power compared to most competitive Detonators
+Fun synergies with many of Water's meta DPS units
+She's our mascot!
-Offers no utility
-Requires setup in both teambuilding and in play to optimize damage output
-Competes for Captain slot with Azure
Bethel's kit is a tooltip nightmare, which initially led to her being underrated. Over time, however, she's slowly established herself as second only to Azure in pure damage output across pretty much all forms of content in Water.
What sets her apart is her insane single-tile performance; basically, Bethel gets scaling damage against single targets, but flexible, parcel-based damage distribution when dealing with multiple enemies. The end result is a kit that's capable of both bursting and grinding out longer stages without sacrificing any power in either.
She offers less alternative utility than Sharona, and has an arguably lower OTK ceiling than Regal, but she's so extremely competent at handling practically every situation that it's hard to imagine her lower than the border of SS.
Final note: Bethel has a myriad of synergies with other Water units, which can either be used to absolutely break her damage potential, or drag otherwise poor units into playability. This gives her a lot of mileage over her competitors, who often demand very specific team comps around them.
