Rinkah is a very unique character statwise. She has the spread of a speedy glacier, to summarize, with high Defense and high Speed, but middling everything else, particularly Strength (but muscles?). However, don’t let this dissuade you, she has some very specific specializations that she beats the rest of the army in by a long shot.

Due to being fast, Rinkah doesn’t have much trouble double-hitting her foes (unless they’re Ninjas or something). She also doesn’t have trouble taking hits either, especially if you keep a healer on duty. As a result, she is the best unit to use to protect your other units, and bait the enemy. Send her out right into the enemy’s range, watch them rush her but be unable to defeat her, and then send the rest of your army charging. Flawless!

Rinkah’s secondary class gives her access to the dazzling Poison Strike, further helping her in her role of the bait-and-lure, as she now will passively damage those who choose to engage her. Her only real fault is her low health, which, similar to Azura, can cause problems. Thankfully, her native class Oni Savage will advance to classes that give beneficial health gain to patch up her weakness.
