PRECISE. DEADLY. OBSESSIVELY HYGIENIC
Beatrix Lucavi may look like an ordinary teenage Jennerit with a giant prosthetic syringe-arm, but beneath Beatrix's cold, artificial exterior lies a lethal intellect. A scientist at artificial heart, the only thing to rival her genius might just be her love of candy.
A master at manipulating life, Beatrix is no stranger to experimenting on and creating creatures. She plays with genomes like other kids play with… whatever it is normal kids in the Solus System play with. That is until the Jennerit took her creations away. Now, she joins the Battleborn to give the Imperium a long-range, high-velocity, lethal dose of their own medicine
Almost entirely artificial, Beatrix’s body is an amalgam of flesh, prosthetics, and synthetic materials. Through her large, prosthetic syringe arm she can spread debilitating debuffs at range, while her allies act as carriers for contagions that enfeeble enemies they come in contact with.
INCISTYX INJECTOR: Shoot enemies with a giant prosthetic syringe arm and spread the phial’s viral agent throughout the battlefield.
(Passive) INFECTION: Infect enemies with the Injector’s viral agent to deal damage over time.
SYNTHETIC CERAMIC BIO-CASING: No more fragile, squishy body parts for Beatrix. She replaced much of her body with a hardened casing and prosthetics resistant to toxins and physical damage.
PATIENT ZERO: Increase Beatrix’s or an ally’s attack speed for a limited time while also applying an aura around the target that damages enemies.
FULMINATE: Rapidly fire a barrage of homing projectiles to weaken enemies and reduce their attack damage.
(Ultimate) OUTBREAK: Plague a target then watch it spread to nearby enemies. The plague wounds and deals damage over time.
“OSCAR MIKE VS THE BATTLE SCHOOL”
Are you too cool for school? Think again! Join Oscar Mike as he relives his attempt to redeem himself and reverse his exile. Of course, trial by obstacle course is the only acceptable solution.

Not to mention the dialogue, enemies, and objectives change depending on your current playthrough.
