Askr: God of Openness

Type: Colorless Beast Infantry
Voice: Dustin Rubin
Artist: Kozaki Yusuke
Bonus: Light (Def; adds extra deployment slot for Aether Raids and Mjölnir’s Strike)

Weapon: Illuminating Horn – Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). If unit initiates combat or is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+5 to unit during combat, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack, deals damage = 20% of unit’s Def, and reduces damage from foe’s attacks by 20% of unit’s Def (excluding area-of-effect Specials). At start of turn, if unit is adjacent to only beast or dragon allies or if unit is not adjacent to any ally, unit transforms (otherwise, unit reverts). If unit transforms, grants Atk+2, deals +7 damage when Special triggers, and neutralizes effects that grant “Special cooldown charge +X” to foe or inflict “Special cooldown charge -X” on unit.
Special: Bonfire
A: Atk/Def Ideal 4
B: Atk/Def Bulwark 3 – Foes with Range = 1 cannot move through spaces adjacent to unit, and foes with Range = 2 cannot move through spaces within spaces of unit. (Does not affect foes with Pass skills.) Inflicts Atk/Def-4 on foe during combat. Restores 7 HP to unit after combat.
C: Opened Domain – At start of turn, if unit is within 2 spaces of any allies from a different title than unit, grants [Resonance: Blades] and [Resonance: Shields] to unit and all allies within 2 spaces of unit, and also, if unit or any of those allies has their Special cooldown count at its maximum value, grants Special cooldown count-1 to them.
