Asella the Paladin is a Holy Royal Guard, whose designation is to protect His Highness, the King. Like Emilia, she enters the dungeon of the Redclaw Syndicate under royal orders to rescue the Princess. As a holy knight, she has also taken a vow of chastity and celibacy. She has a general distaste for peasants and the lower class, finding them repulsive.
(Intro from Character Selection Screen)
Eighth of the 'Primary 8' selectable characters.
Asella's official class is 'Paladin'. Her starting Purity is 100. Her guard is more effective than normal - when she guards she takes just 25% damage from attacks, instead of the usual 50%. Currently there's only one H event exclusive to her (technically 3, but they all result from the same encounter).
Currently there are no side quests exclusive to her.
She has one rank of additional resistance against:
- DEF down
She learns the following skills at these levels:
- L1 - Smite, Surrender
- L2 - Healing Prayer
- L3 - Divine Grace
- L4 - Southern Cross
- L5 - Exorcise Evil
- L7 - Supersonic Thrust
- L9 - Aura of Prudence
- L11 - Aura of Justice
- L13 - Aura of Temperance
- L15 - Aura of Fortitude
Note: Currently all of Asella's attack skills have the max accuracy for their type.
Depending on your choices during your first encounter with her you might have to fight her. In that case she has the same skills as when she's level 9 (except for Surrender) and the same resistances, but her regular attacks cannot inflict a critical hit.
- Asella's "Smite" and "Exorcise Evil" are spells and will always hit, even if she has been blinded. "Southern Cross" and "Supersonic Thrust", on the other hand, are physical attacks and will work even if she has been silenced. This leaves her able to use at least some of her skills most of the time.
- Asella has access to a few positive status effects that increase her base stats (Attack, Defense, Spirit and Agility). Her skills grant her free access to 3 of the magic elements (Holy, Fire and Wind), allowing her to take advantage of some opponents' weaknesses. On the flip side currently she has no free access to any negative effects.
