Setsuna has absolutely standout Speed and great Resistance, making her a prime unit of choice for targeting mages without being punished by their own magic. Unfortunately, her Strength is rather lacking, but can be made up for through her class options. Her high Speed makes her a good mother for those seeking to improve the Speed of a child (if you’re willing to lose out on some Strength and Magic). She also has a great secondary class option to add to her skillset.

Setsuna’s biggest issue is not with her, it is with the fact that she has trouble trying to compete with Takumi, the other archer of Birthright. Without the perks of having stuff like his bow, Setsuna struggles to remain relevant. Her higher Resistance and Speed, however, definitely put her in a different niche that Takumi cannot fulfill. If you’re finding trouble dealing with the mages, Setsuna could be your answer.
