If there was one operative that can set the tempo for a combat situation, it would have to be the Bard. Her objective isn't to send direct damage down range, but to manipulate battle situations through less than lethal means. Though it's rare that a Bard will boast a high kill count, it's thanks to her the term "psychological warfare" has been coined.
Outfitted with a high decibel tactical P.A. system, her influence on the battlefield is greatly amplified. With just her lute and voice, she sings songs that can mould the psyche of her enemies. In some cases, through singing highly classified songs, Bards have convinced enemy combatants to simply walk away from a battlefield out of home sickness.
Mobile assault teams with Bards as part of their group train rigorously together. To the point that they seem to develop their own language. This is important because if communication lines are down, the Bard is able to communicate songs of battlefield situations to just her team through her back mounted P.A. system.
In breaching missions she is invaluable. She can throw short band high fidelity wireless speakers calibrated to her throat mic into sealed rooms to sing songs of confusion before sending in the entire team to overwhelm the enemy.
B Soldier: Don't know. Maybe she try to say "Hey !@#$, shoot me. I'm right here."
A Soldier: Then... what should we do with her ?
B Soldier: Well, shoot her of course. Not like we have anything else to do in this story.
anyways i love the color and the character face, the expression is close and beautiful.
I really like the style you used on this one. The sharp angles on her face and specifically her nose.
