Valerie Rose, Manic Painter
Paint with magic and unbounded creativity!
Valerie has heterochromia, meaning she has one blue eye and one green eye. She "sees things differently," and expresses herself through painting. Emotionally, she experiences highs and lows, which she believes gives her even more appreciation for the full spectrum of human feelings.
She also happens to like both boys and girls--a crime in the capital city of Flagstone. She now lives at Rook's Morningstar Sanctuary, a protected city labeled as "enemy of the state" by Flagstone. She serves as Rook's artistic advisor, alongside Max Geiger, Rook's scientific advisor.

Q: If I use multiple Burst of Speeds, what happens when I get to speed 1.0?
A: You cannot gain any speed past 1.0. If your attack speed is 3.4, for example, and you discard two Burst of Speeds, the first one makes your attack 1.4 and the second makes your attack 1.0.
Q: What happens when my opponent slows my moves, then I use Burst of Speed to speed it up?
A: The general rule is that when two players' abilities modify the same card, that card's owner's ability happens first, then the opponent's ability happens afterwards. For example:
- Valerie's 2-attack is speed 2.2.
- Valerie's Burst of Speed says to speed it up by 2.0, up to speed 1.0. (It is now speed 1.0.)
- Gwen's Chillbane says Valerie's 2-attack is 2 speed slower.
- => Valerie's 2-attack is speed 3.0.
Q: Do I get to draw multiple cards with Unbounded Creativity if I play the Ace as Masterpiece?
A: No, you only draw one card for the entire Ace move, even though Masterpiece costs two Aces to play.
Q: Do I get to draw a card from Unbounded Creativity if the opponent does a Rewind Time Joker against my Ace combo?
A: Yes. Jokers only prevent the damage done by combos, not other effects that happen along the way in a combo.
