Under Night In-Birth/UNICLR/Vatista
She serves. A pawn that sleeps eternally. A puppet with no will to call her own. Her master,
An ancient biological form known as Autonomic Nerves. They've existed for as long as we know, arguably an eternity, and emerge during the Hollow Night as its enforcers. She is one of them. On this Hollow Night, she detects an abnormal number of EXS levels, and awakens. Once awake, she wanders the Night as her program deems fit, making her way towards the Abyss. Her mission, to determine the source of the disturbance in EXS and eliminate it. But to her, Voids and In-Births are all enemies.
Neither one of us is a human...
Vatista is an incredibly versatile and extremely powerful charge character that excels in both controlling neutral with oppressive projectiles like Mico Ruseo and Lumen Stella, as well as utilising Si Deus Fragmentum 'Gems' and Trans Volans in up close pressure for extremely scary throw and high/low mixups. Rounded out by an incredible defense with her signature Ruber Angelus 'Flashkick', she is an technically demanding character able to easily switch between proactive offense and reactive defense, leaving no two Vatista players playing exactly alike.
Despite all of her strengths, Vatista lacks the mobility that comes with a run, as well as the consistency of being able to constantly access specials or an Anti air. Without Si Deus Fragmentum sets or Vorpal, her frame trap game with specials has a lot to be desired, and with a gameplan that feeds GRD to the opponent for free, knowing how to structure and mix up your offense becomes even more important.
