Characters

Linzi

Linzi is first met during the Prologue but if she leaves then you can find her again either at the Ancient Tomb or by speaking to Chief Sootscale at the Old Sycamore when tracking Tartuccio.

This energetic Bard studied at the Academy of the Arts in Pitax, but after coming down with a case of wanderlust, she abandoned the pretentious confines of academia so she could put her talents to more practical use. You know, because it's not really art unless you're bothering other people with it. She may have large ambitions, but she's aware of her own diminutive stature, and has accordingly opted to take a safer, more passive way of making her mark in the world - by chronicling (and perhaps embellishing) your deeds.

Bards are naturally support characters, and to this end, Linzi excels. Not only can you use her selection of Bard spells to supplement the arsenals of your primary casters, but she's also handy enough with ranged weapons and can use a selection of Bardsongs (which will get stronger and more diverse as you level up) to aid your other party members. Just keep Linzi out of melee combat, as her profession and Strength score will both conspire to limit her effectiveness in any sort of melee role.

Fitting her support role, every skill is a class skill for Linzi, and her high Dexterity and Charisma makes her ideal for Persuasion, Stealth and Trickery. If you have all those covered, consider leveraging her good Intelligence score by investing in Knowledge {Arcana} or Knowledge (World).

Linzi is a consummate support character. She's useless in melee combat, mediocre at ranged combat, and her spells won't remove the need for a proper arcane spellcaster or healer, but her bardsongs will make everybody a little bit better at what they're doing, and her spells will take the pressure off other characters while her contributions in ranged combat are welcome enough.
