Background[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Alef is a spirited and kind young foxling. She teams up with Torasu to go with Max to defeat Darksol.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Alef's main purpose is to act as a late-game mage. She is very powerful and has the most magic of all 3 mages. Bolt level 2 is very useful for the first four battles after acquiring Alef, and with efficient use of the spell, she will gain experience points very rapidly. She overall does the highest amount of damage spread of all Force members as she can hit large numbers doing the same damage to each potentially thanks to the Bolt spells. She has the highest MP amount of all mages.
Her stats suffer because of the focus on high MP. She will not take hits very well compared to Anri or Tao due to lower HP and defence. Also, her spells, as powerful as they are, are not very MP efficient and she can eat through her MP very quickly despite its large amount. Due to her spells' reach, range and damage, Alef easily will steal XP from other Force members if she damages or kills large amounts of enemy forces. It does not matter if she kills 3 enemies or 15; she will get the same amount of maximum XP. When using her, players must apply some restraint. Like Domingo, she has Desoul. This spell is a instant kill spell. It is unreliable, but is the fastest way to clear battles early on and if odds are good a good spell for speed runners. She has no tactical spells and focuses only on offensive spells.
