New character - Dorothy
Dorothy is a damage dealer and supporter hybrid that can win 1vs1 battles against any other Sniper in the game. She's similar to Choi Jihoon because you mostly use her for her supportive abilities, and doing some damage on top of that is a nice bonus.
Interestingly, her ASPD buff stacks with Shin Jia, so your team's DPS will skyrocket if you pair them together. And she also gives CRIT DMG, which makes Dorothy shine in Raids and any boss stages. Still, the uptime of the buff is a big rng based since she needs to crit 5 times to reapply it.
As for PVP, due to her low cost, she can be used to trigger Operator skills while still providing support and some damage to the team. While she's a Soldier, she can be used in both Soldier and Counter teams.
Should you pull? Yes!
New character - Liona
Liona has a great design and terrible performance. While the damage she brings to the battle is great for a 3-cost employee, she's made out of paper and moves super slowly, which causes her to often die before doing anything - both in PVP and PVE.
She can be used as a counter to Replacer King in PVP, but you have to keep her alive to reach him and actually do her job, which might be quite hard to do.
Should you pull? She's not worth it.
