"This magical bullet can truly hit anyone, just like you say."
- Der Freischütz's Entry
Der Freischütz (F-01-69) is a humanoid abnormality that wears a large cloak and grey clothing. The color palette of its cloak consists of a black, yellow, and blue. It has a black wispy form with no discernible features besides its eyes, head, arms, and legs. It carries a large gun, most likely a musket, with it.
Ability[edit | edit source]
- When an employee with Justice lower than Level 3 works on the Abnormality, the counter will decrease at the end of the work.
- A medium chance to decrease when the work result is Normal.
- A high chance when the work result is Bad.
Attachment work is replaced by Request/Commission work. You don't need an agent to perform this work, and when you request the Abnormality for a shot, you get to aim where the bullet flies from, with the time stopped until is shot, but the time can be resumed too during the process. Commissioning Der Freischütz costs 10% of your current Energy. You cannot use the ability below 10 Energy.
If Der Freischütz is firing due to its Qliphoth Counter reaching 0, it will simply aim at a random point on the screen. It will do the same thing after the 7th Request, along with decreasing the Qliphoth Counter by 1.
Origin[edit | edit source]
The origin of Der Freischütz is as follows:
"When a hunter received a gun with the bullets that will puncture anything he pleased from the Devil, the Devil proposed a childish contract: the last bullet would puncture the heart of his most beloved. The moment the hunter heard that, he sought down and shot all the people he loved. Telling the Devil, "This magical bullet can truly hit anyone just like you say." The final bullet (the 7th) then punctured his heart. He traveled to numerous worlds, doing what ever he felt based on impulse. One day, the marksman realized the Devil no longer followed him. He pondered why, then realized that his soul had already fallen to Hell. The contract had been fulfilled, so the Devil had left. The marksman, now a devil himself, continues to pull the trigger to gather the souls of others."
How the abnormality was captured or arrived at the facility is unknown.
Details[edit | edit source]
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Der Freischütz's emotional state is divided into 3 sections: Bad, Normal, and Good. Completing 0-6 E Boxes will cause it to feel Distressed, completing 7-11 will cause it to feel Normal, and 12-18 will make it's mood result Happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 10 seconds, and its Qliphoth Counter is 3.

Story[edit | edit source]
- "The Devil ultimately wished for despair."
- "For despair wears down the mind and drains one's will to go forward. When one feels there's nothing left to go for, their soul falls down to Hell, the Devil's domain. This is why the Devil finds it more entertaining to watch people fall to despair, rather than to simply kill them. We describe it as "selling one's soul to the Devil." "
- "When a marksman received a gun from the Devil, the Devil proposed a childish contract: The last bullet would puncture the head of his beloved. The moment he heard that, he sought and shot all the people he loved. Then he told the Devil, "This magical bullet can truly hit anyone just like you say."
- With the last bullet gone for good, the hunter traveled to numerous worlds. Sometimes he helped those in need or fought evil, but it was all done on impulse, not a gesture of goodwill or ideals. In one world, he was called a righteous hunter, while in another, he was a bloodstained gunman.."
- "One day, the marksman realized the Devil no longer followed him. He pondered why, then realized that his soul had already fallen to Hell from the beginning. The contract had already been fulfilled, so the Devil had left."
- "The marksman, now a devil himself, continues to pull the trigger to gather the souls of others. Just as the Devil said, the bullets will puncture anything you please. Forever."
Flavour Text[edit | edit source]
- "Der Freischütz does not remember anything positive, such as the sparks of love or the joy of doing a good deed. He only reacts to dying things."
- "Long ago, Der Freischütz’s heart was pierced by the magic bullet, which always hits its mark."
- "As with all pacts made with the Devil, Der Freischütz’s request will not end peacefully."
