Elbow Room When the user fights in terrain with no additional effect, damage increased by +3 points
Shelter Grants use of the command “Shelter” to pair up with a unit while still being in attack stance

Promotes to: Paladin or Great Knight

The Cavalier is a great balanced package complete with high movement range, perfect for ferrying units back and forth and leading the charge when blitzing the enemy. Shelter allows them to pull in weakened units who may have already expended their turn, and still maintain attack stance, protecting said unit, which is really great to have as a last resort if you make a mistake or if RNG is being cruel to you.

The Cavalier’s two upgrades, Great Knight and Paladin, are also really great, each with their own arsenal of powerful skills, are as such greatly increases the value of the Cavalier itself. Weapon versatility is also appreciated and lets you have control over most of the weapon triangle.
