The Jennerit aren’t exactly known for being nice. In fact, because of their...let’s just say flexible ethics… Ambra (she’s a lot older than she looks) can come off as some magical evil mastermind at times. Her fits of malevolent laughter probably don’t help, either. That said, she is actually one of the good guys. She’s idealistic, optimistic and believes wholeheartedly in the beings she’s fighting alongside to save the last star.
Ambra was betrayed by Rendain and his coup within the Jennerit Imperium. Now, she fights with the Battleborn to heal her people and restore order through localized solar anomalies – preferably launched at Rendain’s face.
How to unlock:
- Rank Unlock: Command Rank 14
- Challenge Unlock: Win 5 matches as a Jennerit hero
Ambra long served within the Jennerit Silent Sisters - priestesses who weaved secrets of the stars into the art of Jennerit prolonged life called "Sustainment". Betrayed by Rendain and his coup within the Jennerit Imperium, Ambra now fights with the Battleborn to heal her people and restore order through the application of localized solar anomalies.
The character stats describe the general attributes of a Battleborn.
- Role: Supporter
- Ambra's full name is Ambralia Claudia Divia, as a quote of her on a Jennerit lore piece reveals.
- Ambra is 11,759 years old during the events of Battleborn (as calculated from years given in lore).
- Ambra's voice actor, Lydia Mackay, previously voiced Athena and Maliwan corporation's advertisements from Borderlands game series.
- DEVELOPER NOTES:
“Ambra is awesome support. During a match we were squaring off against Montana. He was soaking up everything we threw at him and the only thing that kept us going was Ambra dropping sunspots behind cover. We’d go in, chip away at Montana then duck back to get healed up. If our position was pressed, we could fall back and the sunspots work as mines to hold off the enemy.” – Steve Gibson, VP of marketing at Gearbox

- Increased the base damage of Solar Wind by 43%.
Ambra's Extinction Event provided unnecessary crowd control due to the large area of effect. We removed the slowing effect to allow for better counter-play options around her ultimate.
- Ambra's Extinction Event skill no longer slows enemies.
- Fixed an issue that allowed Ambra's Scorching Strikes to deal extra damage.
- Fixed an issue that prevented stealthed targets from being revealed when Ambra's level 6 Left Helix Augment, Agile Anomaly and level 2 Right Helix Augment, Solar Burst were active.
Ambra’s damage output combined with her lifesteal and escape abilities resulted in very high survivability in fights. We wanted to bring this in line with our expectation and reinforce her melee loop as part of her damage output.
- Reduced Staff of Radiance beam damage by 34%.
- Reduced damage of Radiant Wind by 33%.
- Reduced Left Helix Augmentation Cauterization movement speed gain to 30%.
