Machina Kunagiri

A highly sensitive character, Machina cares for his long-time friend Rem and is very protective of her. He is loyal to a fault for the causes he believes in.

One of the most naturally talented members of Class Zero, Machina is also very thoughtful, sometimes to a fault. His loyalty to Rem and the Dominion can blind him to what is right but, because he cares deeply for the things he believes in, he does make a good friend should you earn his loyalty.

Machina uses a pair of swords in battle and from looking at his stats (especially at level 99), he can be considered one of the strongest. Machina is one of the better frontline attackers, as he is quick and strong, although Queen is faster. Should he need healing, he has a few skills that can do that, one of which is Awakening, also making his attacks stronger.

What makes Machina quite dangerous are his abilities that drain HP from enemies. Both Siphon Sword and Dark Side can do this, with Dark Side also possibly inflicting Stun. Outside of those two skills, another good one for Machina is Cyclone Drive, which allows you to continuously attack until your AG runs out.
