Welcome to my Arknights fan... database... website of questionable utility! I am yet another person who has opinions about the game. In particular, I write operator overviews and gameplay guides. Occasionally I'll talk about the story if I feel so inclined.

I like to think my takes are a bit more nuanced than popular meta wisdom typically allows. I've been wrong before, I expect to continue being wrong, and when that happens, I'll update my assessments accordingly. My overviews and guides are intended to be a supplementary resource, but they certainly shouldn't be your only frame of reference (and neither should anyone else's).

Also, I maxed out Gnosis, so do you really want to listen to me? Yes, because maxing out Gnosis means I'm very smart.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or anger, you can direct those here. If you want to link back to me, here's a button:
