Description[edit]

NC p68 Automaton.jpg

Though you have a heart, you have suppressed it. In battle, you are no more than the gear of a machine. Dolls are Dolls, after all. It is only proper that dead corpses should have dead hearts. Those things you could not protect while you still lived, you protect now.

Automaton's Frame of Mind[edit]

It hurts, it’s cruel, it’s hard, it’s sad, even wishes have ended within you and the world.

Salvation is: Acceptance.

You killed the self you gained and now accept the world and your sisters as they are. You give up yourself and bury many things. If you don’t want, don’t love, don’t turn around, nothing should be painful. Because as long as you devote yourself to the function your sisters want, you will have place to be.

However, you can’t kill it all. Sometimes your irrepressible heart will overflow and make you suffer. The only ones who worry about you in those times are your sisters. Even more reason for you to devote yourself to being the shield protecting them. So that they shall not become like you. So that your own heart doesn’t die off in the end.

Skills[edit]

Cover
Timing: Auto Cost: See Effect Range: 0~1
Effect
Once per Turn, when one of your Sisters declares an Action Maneuver, if you both agree, the cost of the declared Maneuver can be reduced to 0 in exchange for reducing your Action value by 1.
If you do not mistake the timing, a small amount of help will have a great effect. You are not fighting alone.
Heart of Ice
Timing: Auto Cost: None Range: Self
Effect
You gain +1 to the die roll on Madness Checks.
Calm down. Be cool. Believe in yourself. Believe in a friend. Do not doubt. Do not be afraid.
I am a Doll
Timing: Auto Cost: None Range: Self
Effect
During the Battle Phase, only for one Turn, ignore all effects of the states of Madness.
That body is a Doll. Your heart is a Doll. The Doll does not feel pain. Your heart...
Prisoner in Limbo
Timing: Auto Cost: None Range: Self
Effect
If you are in "Limbo" at the end of the turn during the Battle Phase, even if your AP has reached a negative value, you may ignore that and recover to your Maximum AP at the start of the next turn.
Hell is right for you. Because enemies can understand you more than allies. Limbo is where the doll belongs. Drawn to Hell, long for paradise even if it is torn apart.
Reckless
Timing: Auto Cost: See Effect Range: Self
Effect
As the Cost of this Skill, damage one of your own Basic Parts of your choice.
You may reroll the die for an Action Check, Attack Check, or Dismemberment Check.
