Character Backstory

Era: The Early 20th Century

Date Of Birth: 15th Of April, In Spring

THE INFAMOUS APOTHECARY: What business owner would turn down a customer who offers to pay more? The Material Store has always welcomed she who sweeps the stock clean. But not without exceptions-the boss had to look sideways to avoid the expectant eyes when she placed before him the appetite potions made with gold, evil dragon scales, and unicorn mane.


NOMENCLATURE: Growing up among Arcanists, Sotheby often found it difficult to distinguish between ordinary animals and the products of modern civilization: Twin Horned Sacred Beasts, Auto Island, Dragon's Breath Candlesticks... Please don't be alarmed, these names actually just refer to ordinary goats, boats, and gas lamps.


THE LADY'S SPEECH: Chit-chat is not proper behavior for a lady of great repute, but Sotheby always loves telling others, with a look of intrigue, about what she has seen and heard. Strange experiences, along with strange Arcanum theories-as Ms. Moissan, the governess who endured twelve hours of long-winded lectures, knows all too well.

First Impressions

Sotheby is a very powerful and versatile Arcanist of the Plant Afflatus that is not only able to deal damage with her skills and special [Poison] debuffs, allowing her to deal 2 different kinds of damage - Reality and Genesis damage, but is also able to heal the entire party immediately with her special skill and even gradually with her ultimate and special [Cure] Status.


Sotheby’s skill kit truly shine when she is used together with other characters that can either inflict the enemies with extra [Poison] Status or grants the party the [Cure] Status, allowing Sotheby to be able to use her ultimate to immediately detonate all [Poison] Status on enemies to deal massive amounts of damage to them while healing the team instantly by activating their [Cure] Status. This synergy makes Sotheby a very powerful early game character to have against a large group of weaker enemies.

How To Obtain

- Sotheby will be available in the game’s launch rate UP banner as a limited character from the 26th of October.
