    This clarinet was left to Connolly by her parents. She spent her lonely childhood practicing on this clarinet, eventually awakening the power hidden within her. From the clarinet emerged tentacled monsters known as Antons. Antons follow Connolly's every command, attacking or entangling her enemies.

  • Her Experiences

    You'll hardly ever notice Connolly is there, so much that you could say she is invisible.

    Don't be deceived by her timid, harmless appearance, though. The screech she makes would give you more than a headache in a fight.

    She is from Umbraton, but has no gang affiliations. Perhaps hometown is the only thing she has in common with fellow Umbratoners here. She did say she thought this is a nice community like a dormitory, but still missing a touch of living... Which is a cafe, by her admission. Coincidentally, she said she worked in a cafe in Umbraton and is here for "business study" purposes. When asked, she would nod and reply, "Yes, I'm doing it right now!" Then scurry to a corner and mull over whatever... I don't get her at all.

    Her Story (I)

    This clarinet is the only thing left for me by my parents. I can't remember what they look like... I only remember my mother's voice.

    It was on a dark night, when I had almost fallen asleep, that I heard my mother tell me that this clarinet would be my friend from now on. After a period of time, my father and mother never came again, and I was passed on from relative to relative... I didn't have any luggage or clothes; all I had was this clarinet...

    Oh, I said that much again? Aren't you tired of listening to me?

    In short, this clarinet is actually my first friend, and it helped me make more friends...

    Ahem, I better go do more study... Let's resume later.

    Her Story (II)

    You can't see them? Oh right, I'm the only one who can see them. They are my only friends...

    Hey, I'm not crazy, so don't look at me strangely like that... These water creatures have been with me for a long time now.

    I was born in Lumopolis. Although I heard I was born in a noble family, I didn't feel that way. Later on, I lived with my relatives because my parents had to go out to work. I lived in a small room since I was a child, and I rarely went out... because they refused to let me go out. My only company was this clarinet, so I played it and played it. Sometimes I'm afraid to play it loudly because I feared I would be disturbing others for being too noisy. So, I pretended to play it and pretended that there was sound.

    Over time, it really did make sounds! The door of that small room opened, and they came in to chat with me. I was quite terrified at first—not of them because they didn't have malicious intentions. I was afraid that they would be discovered by my relatives...

    Oh! I said too much again. In short, they came often to keep me company. T-that's all.

    Her Story (III)

    I am very grateful to my aunt. Although she was very harsh on me, she also raised me well... If it wasn't because my cousin slandered my parents, I would have tried to continue to endure everything... At that time, Anton—those friends of mine—could sense that I was sad and became even angrier than me.

    They asked me to play my clarinet and clamored about teaching my cousin a lesson. So, I tried responding to them... But they actually appeared! They even knocked my cousin out for me! Although I couldn't stay at my aunt's house after that, I felt more at ease with Anton than l did at her house...

    You see, this is what they look like. Don't you think they are quite soft and lovely?

    Her Story (IV)

    I wanted to ask Grandma Sophia for help after I left my aunt's house... However, thinking about my aunt and cousin, I felt that I should not bring trouble to Grandma Sophia, so I was constantly in hiding. But one day, my cousin actually caused trouble at the cafe I worked at.

    I felt really guilty at that time... I rushed over there, only to see that person appear like a god and save Grandma Sophia. After that... I came here as you probably know. Not only can Anton protect me now, but he can also protect Grandma Sophia and everyone else...

    I can do all these things now, so I want to help everyone as much as possible. Although I'm still a little clumsy and still cause trouble now and then... but... I'll definitely become an independent person one day!

  • Are you free right now? Am I bothering you?

    Navigator, about the silky smooth coffee...

    Navigator...

    G... Greetings...

    G... Greetings...

    Good morning... Did you sleep well last night?

    Good morning!

    Navigator, don't drink too much coffee in the morning...

    G-Good morning, Navigator.

    Wo-would you like some milk?

    You looked... A bit exhausted just now...

    G-Good evening...

    It's pretty late... C-Can I ask... what are you doing right now?

    Ugh... I had the fireflies drop off the money on your table.

    Good... evening, N-Navigator...!

  • Solution for the Confusion

    On a whim, the Navigator decides to go to the Cafe to order something from Connolly, only to encounter Leona and Hydrad along the way. The two are arguing because of a language-related conflict, and physical clashes between them are rather common in the Colossus. The Navigator asks Connolly for help to resolve the confusion.

    • Tap on the Colossus Room

      Under the shadow of Azurite, Umbraton is a blend of order and chaos... The exact reason it is all-inclusive.

      - Boring.
      - No fun.
      - All fakes.
      - Hmm...

      The shadow is watching...

      Those... scary things... I don't ever wanna see them again. Not ever...

      Dayna can't take bitter coffee... but she still orders it every time. I always sneak in some cream for her.

      Warm milk plus three sugar cubes... This one is for Robyn. She's always quiet like a kitten.

      - The chocolate desserts in the fridge always seem to quietly vanish for no reason. Why is that?
      - Nom, nom, nom. It is so yummy.

      - A long long time ago, there was a cafe...
      - Yelp!
      - Huh? I'm not even telling a ghost story!

      It's so big... It can actually fit quite a few Holiday Cafes and... so many people...

      I do mind here... What? Oh, I'm... I'm sorry! I was just wandering around...

      Everyone gets scared... If I get to shake my fear someday, I may be able to learn about Anton's secrets...

      I'm hearing it again, Anton's whisper! Woah! why are you leaning so close to me? I didn't mean to summon you...

      - Connolly.
      - Poor, fragile Connolly. Don't be afraid. Do you hear us?
      - Listen to our voices. We'll keep you company.
      - Such... tender darkness. I'm no longer alone...

      You... you asked me... who... I was talking to just now? But... they... they're right here...

      Well... Anton likes it very much, too... Looks like you're trustworthy...

      I always think... that if I'm with you, I won't ever feel scared again no matter where I go. So... could... could you come closer?

      I received... help from that person... So were Dayna, Robyn, and Hydrad...

      Anton's special skill... is putting people to sleep. I'm suddenly feeling really sleepy...

    Race Queen

    Though shy by nature, Connolly decided to help cheer on her friends participating in the races. However, compared to what she was used to wearing daily, this uniform was really "something else". Nonetheless, Connolly accepted the bold outfit pitched to her by a salesman in the hopes of becoming more outgoing.

  • Class

    Sniper (S-)

    Overall

    S-

    Advantages

    +Chain is now global, making her a competent mobber

    +Global chain also synergizes with her built-in Fright mechanic, letting her run away while building marks

    +Marks provide a significant (multiplicative!) damage buff, and eventually add a self double-chain on the nearest enemy

    +High-damage Active allows for strong mobbing

    Disadvantages

    -Core issue of being a pure Sniper with no splash remains

    -Windup time on marks is noticeable compared to Fleur (who also has access to splash)

    -CD is still tied for worst CD in the game without MBT

    Explanation

    The day has finally come: Connolly is unironically good. No, seriously!

    If you're unfamiliar, Connolly was the no-holds-barred worst six star unit in the game for an entire year, up until TourDog decided to randomly and completely rework her entire kit into something playable. This is surprising as hell, given that TD refused to buff her during the release of her skin and her second rate-up rerun. Well, here we are...

    Connolly now functions as a hyper-specialized 10+ round mobber and single-tile boss killer. While the CD on her active is still miserable, her equipment passive is strong enough now to compensate in the right situations, and the damage on her Chain is just silly. The fact that her marks don't clear and also release a double chain combo at max stacks is pretty relevant for single-tile bosses.

    Ace and Neppity from the team are actually dead serious when they compare her to Mythos... albeit only from turn four-ish onwards. Chances are that she's a pretty nice QoL unit. That said, she's still just that -- a QoL unit for single-tile and mobbing. You probably won't use her on most high-end comps, but that's still a huge step up from where she was before.
