A revered hermit in the Hinterlands of Africa, Dolores has allied herself with Heidern.

■ISLA

Isla is an extremely energetic graphic artist based in South America. Though she lives a life of solitude, she has developed a deep and trusting relationship with her phantom arms, Amanda. However, when push comes to shove, Isla is no joke as she uses Amanda and her spray cans to mix up whoever gets in her way. She has a bright and cheery personality, but for some reason, she seems to really have it out for Shun’ei.
