Operator Overview

“Isn't it lonely to cook all by yourself? Let me help you out! Oh yeah, let's get Lava in here too!”

Hibiscus is in charge of health management and nutrition at Rhodes Island, and it doesn’t take long for new Operators to learn to run away when she starts pulling out her special twelve-vegetable salads and sustained-release medicines. Her obsession with healthy, natural living even extends to her methods of healing: Hibiscus actually tries not to use her Originium Arts on her patients, preferring to prescribe herbal tinctures and science-proven drugs. However, when her allies need her, she pulls out her Originium staff and wields her Arts on the battlefield as a 3* ST Medic.

Hibiscus is the bread-and-butter healer for many new Doctors. Her unimpressive base stats are buoyed by her Healing Up Talent and her Healing Up α Skill (noticing a pattern with the names there?), both of which increase her ATK so she can output more healing. She’s comparatively cheap to raise and to deploy, and the burst healing generated by Healing Up α can be crucial to surviving a nasty enemy wave.

Hibiscus is a very serviceable healer, but many Medics in Arknights also bring powerful forms of utility to their team, such as damage mitigation, offensive buffs, or unique healing ranges. Not only does Hibiscus lack such an advantage, but she is also unable to E2-promote, which limits her overall growth potential. That being said, a Medic’s primary job is to heal, and in the early game, Hibiscus delivers on this job admirably. Her battlefield duties should eventually be replaced by more combat-ready Operators, but reliable Hibiscus is always there for you in case you need her.

Born in Londinium in Victoria, Hibiscus is the older twin sister of her fellow Operator, Lava. After contracting Oripathy, she came to Rhodes Island for treatment. While undergoing that treatment, she began to dream of helping others. Her passion for caring for others, as well as her hard work, have led Hibiscus to become a Rhodes Island Medic.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging tests have shown the outlines of her internal organs to be indistinct due to abnormal shadows. Originium granules have been detected in her circulatory system, confirming her to be infected with Oripathy.

[Cell-Originium Fusion Rate] 7.4%
She presents no obvious external symptoms of Oripathy.

[Blood Crystal Density] 0.2 u/L
Degree of infection is minor and physical symptoms are not yet present.

Originium Arts Rating

Increase Trust to 50.
Though she possess basic Originium Arts, Hibiscus prefers not to utilize her Originium power. Instead she would rather use her medical skills to care for and treat the wounds of her allies. Given her talents in medicine, Hibiscus has become an outstanding Rhodes Island Medic Operator.

Archive File 1

Increase Trust to 100.
Born in Londinium, Hibiscus was popular among her neighbors as a child, and for good reason - she is considerate, hardworking, courteous, modest, and is good at taking care of people. Though it appears to outsiders that Lava does not like to deal with Hibiscus and that the two sisters don't share a strong relationship, Hibiscus knows the truth - that Lava just isn't very good at expressing those kinds of feelings.

Archive File 2

Increase Trust to 150.
After the two sisters were infected with Oripathy, Hibiscus took Lava and left their parents to come to Rhodes Island. The determined Hibiscus decided to work hard for Rhodes Island, for her sister, herself, her parents back home, and all the other infected.

Archive File 3

Increase Trust to 200.
Because of Lava's obstinance, Hibiscus has cultivated a tough attitude from the time they were little. 'This food is good for you. You need to eat it every day!' 'I threw all your snacks away because they're bad for you!' 'It's 10:30. You need to go to bed!' From a bystanders' perspective, Lava seems to have a rough time dealing with her older sister.
