"It's a good day! Are you still shy today?"
- Today's Shy Look's Entry

Today's Shy Look (O-01-92) is an Abnormality taking the form of a humanoid person of brown clothing or robes and skinless legs. Blood can be seen dripping from below. The person stands behind a mounted 'net' of skin, with two poles at the side supporting it. The cover of skin is wide, with blood around the borders and 5 faces of different expressions, from happiness to anger, at the front, with the person standing behind it changing position to take the spot behind the faces.

Ability[edit | edit source]

This abnormality's mechanics come from the 5 different faces they hide behind. From time to time, roughly 3-5 seconds, Today's Shy Look will shift from face to face, shaking slightly whenever it's about to do so. When being worked on, Today's Shy Look will temporarily stop shifting between faces and stay behind the one it's behind at that moment.

Today's Shy Look possesses 5 faces, each of them affecting the work in a different way. The faces, from left to right, are:

  • 'Smiling' face: The WorkSuccessIcon.png Work Success is greatly increased by +30%, BlackDamageTypeIcon.png damage dealt is halved (x0.5). After getting a EBoxIcon.png PE-Box, the employee will recover 20% of both their max HPHealing.png HP and SPHealing.png SP.
  • 'Happy' face: The WorkSuccessIcon.png Work Success is increased by +10% and after getting a EBoxIcon.png PE-Box, the employee will recover 20% of their max SPHealing.png SP.
  • 'Neutral' face: No effects.
  • 'Sad' face: The WorkSuccessIcon.png Work Success is greatly decreased by -30% and BlackDamageTypeIcon.png damage dealt by the Abnormality is multiplied by 1.5
  • 'Angry' face: The WorkSuccessIcon.png Work Success is majorly decreased by -50% and BlackDamageTypeIcon.png damage dealt by the Abnormality is doubled (x2).

Origin[edit | edit source]

It is possible that the person behind the cover of skin used to be very sad and shy, but the residents of the City they lived in didn't approve of this and would constantly force Today's Shy Look to express themself and be 'happy'. One day, Today's Shy Look snapped, flaying their skin off and leaving it to dry, like how they dried their laundry long ago, and carving 5 different faces on it so they can finally express themself, pleasing the people around them. When asked about why they did so, they would only respond with "I was just shy...".

How they arrived into the facility is unknown, but probably was extracted from the City mentioned in their story.

Details[edit | edit source]

Today's Shy Look responds to the four Instinct.pngInsight.pngAttachment.pngRepression.png Works equally, with the success rate being 'Common.' This is influenced by the current face they're currently behind.

Like all Abnormalities, their energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.

Today's Shy Look's emotional state is divided into 3 sections: BadResult.png Bad, NormalResult.png Normal, and GoodResult.png Good. Completing 0-6 E Boxes will cause it to feel BadResult.png Distressed, completing 7-9 will cause it to feel NormalResult.png Normal, and 10-12 will make it's mood result GoodResult.png Happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 15 seconds

Story[edit | edit source]

Today's Shy Look's encyclopedia portrait

  • "It's a good day! Are you still shy today?"
  • "One sunny day, when they were sincerely drying the laundry in the yard, sadness struck suddenly.

“In our city, sacrifices for corporates must be highly praised. Honor for their deaths. No reason for you to cry either. Rather, you should be glad.”

“What's with that look on your face? That kind of facial expression isn't recommended in our city.” 

“Goodness, why are you making such a face? You're making others feel gloomy too. Please be more considerate, you don't live in this world alone after all.” 

“You are very poor at expressing your emotions. You must be quite shy.” 

“Hey, try to look more pleased, that way those living in the Outskirts will be more envious of us.” 

“Put a bigger smile on your face! It's not that hard.” 

“Next time, try to express yourself more clearly, it's very important to express oneself in this society.” 

One sunny day, just like that day they sincerely dried the laundry, they dried their own skin."

  • "Everyone was finally satisfied when they showed a bright smile. If they met people who asked what was wrong, they would respond: “I'm just shy, that's all. Just shy...”"
  • "If one tries to look at the face behind the skin, the result will not be pretty. The space behind their skin is the only personal space they have left. Leaving it uninvaded is the last bit of generosity the City can offer."

Flavour Text[edit | edit source]

  • "There’s no sunlight to be found inside this facility, yet Today's Shy Look delicately dries their own skin."
  • "The City encouraged Today's Shy Look to keep smiling, but they who were too shy to reveal themself instead chose to..."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first Abnormality to be able to change to different states while not being worked on, even when employees don't interact with it.
  • Its E.G.O. Weapon doesn't possess any description. If this intentional or was left unfinished, is unknown.
