Shanna's Abilities

Starting Ability: Alchemy I allows Shanna to create short-lived alchemical mixtures - effectively, they are the "spells" of alchemy. Shanna has concentrated on alchemy that restores the body and spirit. Alchemy spells of this level cost 3 AP to cast, and a card play is optional. They must be cast on the Player Turn.

Secret Techniques: Hidden Recipes These recipes teach Shanna how to mix together specific items, with dramatic effects.

Design Notes: Standing firmly in the healer role, Shanna was designed to be fast and effective. Her spells (Alchemy) are focused on restoring HP and status. When everyone's healed, her weapons and abilities allow her to be a battlefield controller, keeping enemies out of specific areas or altering the qualities of the battlefield itself. In story terms, it's important to notice that her role says "Female Lead," not "Love Interest." Shanna is completely capable of leading the team from day one.
