Fear Mell

Age: 18-23

Race: Highlander

Origin: Astral continent

Class: Fighter

Height: ?

Weight: ?

There's nothing to fear but Fear itself. Fear talks like a tough guy, probably due to hanging around Cius for so long. In battle she's pretty awesome; her throwing swords always hit at least twice (some of them four times) and she doesn't have to go all the way into battle to use them. The downside is that she doesn't have a large variety of techniques, and is a bit weaker than the other swordsmen. Like Cius, her Ability prowess can be different depending on which Talents you get at the start. Note that if you're playing with Cius, Fear's set of Talents will reset when you get her for "good" later on.

Obtaining Fear: A bit complicated. Here's what'll happen if you:

  • Have Cius: Fear will temporarily join your party in Astral, and you can permanently get her later, when you get the Astral Emblem.

  • Have Ashlay: Fear will not join in Astral, but you can still get her permanently later.

  • Have neither: You can break Fear out of jail and Astral and get her to join permanently. However, if you then go to Parj Temple with her, you'll have to choose between keeping both Fear and Joshua, or losing both of them.

Techniques: Short Range

Dancing Sword

Learned: Level 19

MP: 9

Fear will shoot out her sword and if she hits, the enemy will be knocked *towards* her. She then does a jumping attack. Not all that great; a Raven Sword can probably do more damage quicker.

3 Way

Learned: Level 24

MP: 14

An excellent technique. Fear shoots out three swords in a spread formation; the swords can hit enemies nearly anywhere on the battlefield, and they can hit coming back as well! You can dish out some major chaos with this.

3 Volley

Learned: Level 28

MP: 12

Basically the same as Raven Sword, except she shoots three swords out, which can hit a total of six times. More MP and more damage.

Techniques: Long Range

Spirit Blast

Learned: Level 13

MP: 7

Raven Sword
Learned: L.16; MP: 6; Range: Short/Long
A simple technique. Basically the same as a regular attack, but the damage is slightly raised, and it can hit coming back as well (for a total of four times). Note that some weapons do this automatically, so this technique would be useless for those!

Aqua Spread

Learned: Level 32

MP: 17

Water-elemental. Not a great attack; she shoots out a knife that goes through enemies and can hit once or twice.

Galaxy God Breath

Learned: Level 36

MP: 22

A great attack (but quite high MP cost). Fear shoots out four spreads of three little shots each. Each shot does about half damage, but you can get at least 8-10 hits out of these babies! One of her best techniques.

Secret Techs: Long Range

Sylvan Shot

Learned: God of War Secret Skill, from 3-Way

MP: 25

It looks nasty, but it doesn't actually do a whole lot of damage. Fear shoots out a barrage of knives in a straight line, each of which does half damage. This can keep enemies busy, but it doesn't do anywhere near as much damage as her other regular techniques.

Unholy Terror

Learned: God of War Secret Skill, from Galaxy God Breath

MP: 29

Again, it looks nice, but doesn't do much damage. Fear jumps up in the air and shoots three energy balls at the enemy, each of which does normal damage. I guess the good thing about it is that she's out of harm's way when she's up in the air.

Victory Terror

Learned: God of War Secret Skill, from Unholy Terror

MP: 31

Basically the same as Unholy Terror, but faster and she shoots out four balls instead of two. Again, I find that 3 Way or Galaxy God Breath work way better.
