Agent (代理人) acts as the Grand Overseer of Sangvis Ferri, she relays commands given by the Mastermind Elisa to all entities Sangvis Ferri. Classification of Agent is a Rear Command type Android (后方指挥人形) despite her powerful combat performance, her typical role within SF is communication and logistic network management, it is hinted she also takes care of Elisa's daily life needs, and Elisa relies on Agent a great deal. Agent sits at the top of the SF command hierarchy ladder just below Elisa and has direct command privilege over all SF entities.

Overall behaviour of Agent is described as ruthless, but not manner-less, this calm and level headed Overseer would speak with respectful tones to both friends and foes alike. However her choice of vocabulary varies depending on audience, she only speak with polite and respectful words to her Master, against enemies and incapable subordinates she speaks in a more vulgar tongue. She seem to be holding extra prejudice against G&K.

Appearances

Agent's first appearance is during the game's tutorial, where her efficient combat ability and tactics were first demonstrated, so she is the first Sangvis Ferri Ringleader model android all players encounter in the story. She made a second appearance during Operation Cube when Ouroboros's behaviour spiraled beyond control.

However she will not actually be encountered as an enemy in the game until the event Singularity, which took place after chapter 10 Emergency. As the siege against SF intensified in SF home base in S09 during chapter 10 and Singularity, Agent deployed on to the battlefield to assist Gager and the forward units, she suffered a defeat at the hands of the overwhelming firepower from the Army in order to protect her master Elisa, but recovered as SF retreated out of S09.

Gameplay

Agent's several appearances in Singularity had caught the player base by surprise, it is when fighting Agent players realised the importance of target switching capable units. Agent's fight is fairly long, the E3 diurnal fight Agent is significantly stronger. A few points to note:

  • Agent's attack speed is moderate, they also do moderate damage per shot, her attack accuracy is fairly low during the night combat session, but becomes a lot more accurate on the day fight. She will also empower herself after being damaged below 50% health, where she will gain attack speed.
  • On multiple occasions Agent will teleport back and player's echelon will have to re-approach again and get within firing range, while Agent's attack range allows her to strike the player echelon from afar, not as far as Dreamer though.
  • The night version of the fight Agent simply teleports back, while the day version Agent summons other Sangvis Ferri units to move on ahead, such as Ripper, Vespid and even ring leader units such as Scarecrow and Executioner. Players will have to deal with the newly spawned adds before they can approach Agent again.
    • To facilitate the completion of the fight itself, whenever player defeat a Ringleader add wave, all active dolls on the field will be rewarded with a shield around ~200 HP value, the shield is permanent and will stay until it is depleted.
      • This shield can be refreshed upon defeating further Ringleader add waves, but will not exceed total value.
  • At the final stage of the fight (when she is down to 15-20% health) she will use her action skill to deploy a shield, a barrier that soaks up a fairly large chunk of hitpoints for her.
    • Failing to deplete this shield within given time will result in a explosion similar to that of a Goliath, dealing fatal (99999) damage to all the dolls within the echelon. If the dolls haven't been critically damage they will survive one blast with the critical damage CG invuln-frame mechanic, but it will leave them with 2x dummy links remaining. And due this they will also lose the dummy-linked damage, which means they are unlikely to penetrate Agent's shield when she deploys it again.
    • The shield marks the final stage of the fight, when her barrier is depleted she will continue to hold up the animation, this is the chance for player echelons to finish her off, if unable to do so she will deploy another shield after a couple of basic attack sequences. So it is absolutely imperative that players should keep their damage dealers on the backline at full strength for as long as possible.
  • The night fight Agent will also attempt to deploy holographic clones of herself, the clones only deals a fraction of the mainframe's damage, but it is added damage nevertheless. Clones may be spawned when she deploys the shield, which will continue to attack player's front line units while she is locked in the shielding animation.
    • Since by default player echelon dolls cannot switch targets, the only way to switch target to them is for Agent to teleport back.

The echelon type to fight Agent should be AR/SMG based dolls, for they have relatively fast movement speed, and it is required to approach Agent when she teleports away.

For AR dolls players may choose to use units such as AR ST AR-15Thumb button.pngST AR-15 , AR Type 95Thumb button.pngType 95  and AR G41Thumb button.pngG41 , for their skill duration and total empowered uptime is long, more suitable for long duration battles. However the night version of the fight players may also choose to use dolls with night optimised skills such as AR OTs-14Thumb button.pngOTs-14  and AR 9A-91Thumb button.png9A-91 , for their skills have a higher magnitude and when active their DPS is raised by a fair margin, using this burst window players can overpower Agent's shield with ease. (Though be mindful of the invulnerability frame from Agent as she plays the animation to cast the shield.) At the time of Singularity release CN players did not have access to target switching AR dolls, but since they are now accessible on EN, they should make the fight slightly easier, AR AUGThumb button.pngAUG  and AR SAR-21Thumb button.pngSAR-21  boasts sweeping mode, with the active target switches they can deal with Agent's holographic clones without her teleporting back.

Long and drawn out fight is fairly demanding for the tanking SMG, for they require high evasion and good health pool. Agent's teleportation also means the echelon has to frequently move forward, and while moving forward dolls cannot activate their skills, leaving the SMG dolls vulnerable. A way to bypass this vulnerability phase is to use constant evasion bonused dolls, such as SMG C-MSThumb button.pngC-MS , SMG P90Thumb button.pngP90  and to some extend SMG UMP40Thumb button.pngUMP40 , for the 3 forementioned dolls all have skills that passively increases their evasion rating. SMG dolls with empowering type skills such as SMG MP7Thumb button.pngMP7  and SMG PM-06Thumb button.pngPM-06  are less viable but can still get the job done when provided with a sizable amount of evasion bonus from tiles/fairies.

HG WelrodThumb button.pngWelrod  with enemy accuracy down skill, and HG P7Thumb button.pngP7  with own echelon evasion up skill can also improve own squadron's chances of survival. Though it is less advised to take more than 1 HG dolls into the fight with Agent because of the shield DPS check.

Agent will also only attack whoever is closest to her, players can also choose to deploy two evasion based SMGs standing up front, when one takes almost fatal damage, simply move the off tank up and switch roles with the main tank.
