Novio is always sitting somewhere quiet and reading a book. That's not unusual since many others in the Colossus loves reading as well. But what surprised me the most was his book preference... He seems to have a particular fondness for reading obscure and ancient texts, yet he still even manages to feed his rabbit with a carrot while reading intently! But on sunny days, Novio would become more outgoing. He would sit by the window with a smile on his face, drinking tea, and would even invite me for a cup. But after having the first sip, I decided then and there that I would never have another! I mean, this tea is really... really bitter... Oh, but maybe for Novio, it is the taste of history?
So this is the necessary process to join the Colossus? Then I shall change my attire to introduce myself properly. No need to be so formal? So you are just interested in my personal history? Alright, I will make it as casual as I can. I have no memories of my childhood, and when I awoke in that place, my appearance was the same as it is now. The Winter Palace sent someone to take me into the palace when they learned of my awakening. That's when I met Amelie, the first queen I served. In the many years since then, we worked together to resolve countless crises in Northland. No, it's not what you think. I have never had any authority. The only thing I possess and could offer is my wisdom.
I believe this land itself has given me the solution to my lifelong worry. I'm talking, of course, of my birthplace. Northland gave birth to me, so I should give back to it or its creations with the same kindness. You might say that this is a simple worry and wouldn't be an obsession for anyone else. But I am someone who is imprisoned by time, and no one has been able to see time's toll on my body. Thus, I could only watch as wrinkles gradually creep across Amelie's face before she herself was reclaimed by time. Talking to you now, I realize that it was so long ago... I could not accept this separation at that time, so I chose to run away and go back to my birthplace.
I was gripped with trying to figure out the origin and meaning of life at that time and was almost completely overwhelmed by it. But all my endless thinking gave me no answer. It was during this confused state of mind, I saw Amelie again. She was smiling, walking lightly towards me, and she was calling my name... No, it was an earnest request: "Safeguard Northland, and protect the people." The words were light and airy, but the weight they carried chiseled through my brain. I finally let go of my useless flailing against nothingness and returned to reality. This was the responsibility she entrusted to me. So I accepted the royal invitation and returned to the Winter Palace to serve the royal family. As for Her Majesty Bethlehem... She is of Amelie's bloodline, and I do not have any regrets about serving her. Clearly, she is an outstanding queen, and her ancestors must be proud of her.
When the war began, I joined the Coalition for Her Majesty Bethlehem. When I reached Northland, I found that my abilities had diminished, which was peculiar to me. But still, I find it hard to forgo the land scarred from Eclipsite attacks and the hearts of people corrupted with darkness. Lumopolis and Illumina, soldiers from both sides, fought over battle recognition and competed for resources, preventing the Coalition from becoming a true alliance. Thus, after the Darkover Crisis ended, I returned to Northland, for it is the last paradise for Aurorians, and it is my duty to protect this white and beautiful land. In order to safeguard Northland, I'm willing to pay any price. And I mean any price.
I have a question to ask you.
Thank you for your kind invitation.
Hmm, how very strange.
In your opinion, Navigator...
What a beautiful morning.
Good morning, Navigator.
Are you feeling weary?
Good afternoon, Navigator.
Do you know, before one sleeps at night...
Now then, good night.
Do Caelestites dress up fireflies during festivals?
Good night, Navigator.
An amazing mind reader has come to the Colossus and you wonder how he did it...
You are invited to journey to Northland. Early in the morning, before the New Year, you awaken to the sound of the piano drifting through the halls of the Winter Palace and find Novio sitting behind the keys...
I am deeply grateful for every day that I get to live on this white land.
Both Illumina and Lumopolis have their own way of survival.
For the North.
They are pathetic creatures who have brute force but no ability to think for themselves.
People only see how strong the queen is, but nobody knows the price she has paid to protect Northland...
Nikinis is impeccable when it comes to paying respects to her Majesty the Queen.
Yea... It is because I grew up in a country of snow that I cherish the warmth of the sun even more.
Haha, don't let me hear anyone speak ill about her Majesty the Queen.
A giant object that appeared in historical records. I didn't expect to see the real thing in my lifetime.
I need to learn more about the history of this place.
A nomination process with a strong sense of tradition? Haha, I'm happy to oblige.
A chapter of regret that can not be rewritten...
A perfect ritual!
I am ready.
I wish you a happy and peaceful year.
The healing flame burns in my heart.
History... is taking place before our eyes.
This growth is worth commemorating!
Are you bored? I can tell you some stories about the history of Northland. Maybe it will entertain you for a while.
Oh? This feels so warm...
Living a life without rituals is like traveling in the dark on a night without stars... How boring is that?
Sssh... You'll scare the bunnies next to me if you're too loud.
The pages of history contain knowledge of events of the past and things that will happen in the future.
It isn't necessarily bad even if every day is the same. You must know that many of our compatriots have given their lives to give their descendants a stable future.
Oh? Is there a new member in the rabbit family...? Wait patiently and be good, little rabbit, I'll prepare sweet carrots for everyone soon.
With great power comes great responsibility. I won't run away from my responsibilities or forget my original intentions. My desire to protect the Northland only grows stronger.
You don't need to be so cautious. Just ask me if you have any questions, and I will do my best to give you a satisfactory answer.
Sometimes, your good qualities remind me of an old friend I haven't seen in a long time... I wish I could see her again.
It is quite simple to develop a sense of ritual. For example... we can make the day we met the anniversary of our friendship.
Sometimes I can hear the mountains and rivers talking to me. They speak so slowly, but they sound so alluring.
Be careful, Even these furry white rabbits will bite if they get angry.
Every ordinary day is worth remembering.
Yea, nothing has happened. This is the simplest form of happiness, don't you think?
Stretch or take a deep breath... We can start a beautiful day with the simplest ritual.
Have you finished your work? Maybe I can help you arrange a ritual to cleanse your soul?
Oh... Why haven't you slept yet even though it's so late? Could you be doing a taboo ritual?
I am Novio, a citizen of Northland, and I have been waiting a long time for you. We have great weather today. Could it have anticipated your arrival and come to welcome you?
I am waiting.
Northland has not changed since then. Everyone other than me believed that I was the mountain spirit...
How can we protect the people important to us and this peaceful land? I have been searching for an answer to this question for many years.
This moment of tranquility is the most precious gift anyone can give me. I think I have found a way to protect Northland.
It is my pleasure.
Although he maintains his unique perspective of the world, Novio becomes a master pianist the instant he dons this new look. He brings warmth and goodwill to the strong-hearted survivors of Northland, and encourages a certain special audience member to persevere and move forward resolutely, forever striving for self-improvement.
+Best overall healing output in the game. Practically demanded for certain stages.
+Detonator style chain and active deal non-zero amounts of damage (huge, for a dedicated healer)
+Strong synergy with Lilica which turns his active shields into damage that can rival other detonators' Skill DPR.
-Damage output is a marginal bonus which sometimes doesn't compensate you enough if you're not running Lilica.
There was a meme for some time that "some dude named Boyfriend" outdid Bethlehem when they were released together... and, well, they're not wrong, at least at BT0. Novio is an incredibly potent healer with acceptable DPS and some absolutely game-breaking synergies with Lilica that make him a competitive DPS option in his own right. He also has very little competition: Victoria has issues in single-target content, Alice is weak, Liqing is a limited-time Welfare, and Philyshy is unusable in element-restricted content. While healing remains a tertiary concern, Novio is definitely the cream of the crop.
