Cyrille is a playable human mage in the game Shining Force EXA. She is one of the game's two protagonists and also one of the Heritors in charge of the Geo-Fortress.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Cyrille is intelligent, calm, cool, and collected. Initially, she comes off as somewhat of an ice queen, bookish, and somewhat of a loner. She can be socially awkard at times and shy. In time however, she shows kindness, fear, and even remorses for Toma the fate of destined for the Heritors. She is a bit secretive, hiding much from others if but to prevent them from knowing the cruel fate that awaits the Heritor. Unlike Toma who acts in reckless abandon, Cyrille tries to approach things thoughtfully and methodically.

Despite being aloof, she harbors great attachments for Toma, often becoming unhinged and envious when the Les Vaes tries to seduce him. 

Background[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about Cyrille's past, parents, or much else other than she is from the Noswald empire. It is possible that her parents were both deceased as well when she was young and she was thus taken in by her grandfather. He was a studious man however, constantly reading books and had little time to raise Cyrille. As such, she ended following him in his footsteps, engrossing herself in books. Eventually she found reading more entertaining and relieving than reality itself. Unfortunately, her grandfather eventually passed. Though it is not mentioned what provoked Cyrille to begin her quest to search for the holy sword, it is possible her rationale is the same as Toma's: to end the conflict between Noswald and Fyrland.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Cyrille is mostly a long-range fighter. She fights by swinging a book, or by shooting enemies with a crossbow. She has high INT, so she can deal a great deal of damage using magic; however, she has lower HP and defense than Toma, making her vulnerable to physical confrontations by enemies.

When using Cyrille, it is recommended to carve Power Arts that reflect her abilities as a mage (e.g. MP Concentration, INT, Elemental Magic levels, etc.), all the while reinforcing her defenses-- particularly to Knockbacks, Stuns, and Critical Hits. It is important to increase her HP and defenses as quickly as possible to survive any melee strikes. 

Though she does use crossbows, they typically do not deal very much damage, particularly to enemies around her level or above it. Therefore, it is better to focus on increasing her aptitude as a mage while reinforcing her defenses than to focus on her Weapon Attack or Swinging. However, because her crossbow attacks are rapid fire, she can effectively chip away at an target's HP while maintaining her distance. At higher levels and with a setup geared toward physical power, she can actually defeat enemies with regular attacks while her melee allies keep them away from her.

Powers & Magic[edit | edit source]

- By equipping certain weapon, like books or crossbows with magic, Cyrille can cast certain spells of varying levels of power.



- With 'Fire-Ice Tome' equipped, Cyrille can cast 'Blaze' lvl 1 and

'Freeze' lvl 1

- With 'Freeze Shot' equipped, Cyrille can cast 'Ice Spike' lvl 2 and probably lvl 3, too

- With 'Gaia Codex' equipped, Cyrille can cast 'Shine' lvl 2, 'Holy' lvl 2, and 'Gaia Nova' lvl 2 and lvl 3

- According to Attack Power, Cyrille's Attack Power is lower than Toma's and her attack power when equipping a book is higher than when equipping a crossbow. Her Combo when using crossbow is more than when she using a book to attack, though.

When using Tomes/Books, be sure you try to look for elemental books that have Elemental blessings (e.g. Fire Element increasing Fire Dmg to 30% base value) to help increase the effectiveness of her magic. 

Cyrille best bow is Aurora Bow, who contain Avalon Nova spell and 8 Combos.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

(When talking to Toma before going to destroy the Magnus Blaster cannon) "I'm not scared of Riemsianne! I could take her!"

(When talking to Zenus, after Zhirra says that she doesn't want to say goodbye to Cyrille before she goes to the Dungeon of Ordeals) "Oh, Zhirra... Please don't be so sad! You've been a great friend to me, Zhirra. You understand me better than anyone."

(When talking to Toma before going to Dungeon of Ordeals) "Isn't it ironic? We've finally started to getting along, right when we need to part."
