A basic GF, Shiva starts with the Spr-J junction, which is hardly inspiring. She can natively learn Str-J and Vit-J, being one of the few sources of early-game Str-J. As usual for elemental GFs she can learn Elem-Atk-J, Elem-Def-J and Elem-Def-Jx2, as well as the standard commands Magic, GF, Draw and Item. Her Doom command (learned at level ten) can inflict the Doom status, killing an enemy after the counter above its head runs down. She can also learn I Mag-RF, which will allow you to refine ice and water based magic from items.
