Deirdre: Fated Saint

Type: Blue Tome Infantry
Voice: Erica Mendez
Artist: Haimura Kiyotaka
Bonus: Earth (Attack + Pair Up)

Weapon: Spirit Forest Writ – Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). Effective against dragon foes. If unit is within 3 spaces of an ally, inflicts Atk/Res-6 on foe during combat, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack, disables foe’s skills that “calculate damage based on the lower of foe’s Def or Res,” and also, if unit’s Res > foe’s Res at start of combat, inflicts penalty on foe’s Atk/Res during combat = 80% of difference between Res stats at start of combat. (Maximum penalty of -12.)

Special: Circlet of Balance – Cooldown 2. Boosts Special damage by 40% of unit’s Res. If unit’s HP > 1, foe would reduce unit’s HP to 0, and both following conditions apply, unit survives with 1 HP:
-Unit or foe’s Special is ready, or unit or foe’s Special triggered during this combat.
-Unit initiates combat or foe’s Range = 2.
(Once per map. Considered a non-Special effect. Does not stack with non-Special effects that allow unit to survive with 1 HP if foe’s attack would reduce HP to 0.)

A: Still Water 4

B: Atk/Res Tempo 3 – Inflicts Atk/Res-3 on foe and neutralizes effects that grant “Special cooldown charge +X” to foe or inflict “Special cooldown charge -X” on unit during combat.

C: Atk/Res Menace
