Profile

Vaan’s Girlfriend

Age: 16 years
Race: Hume

She lives in the same town as Vaan, a boy that she cares so much about that she is willing to put her life in danger for him.

Penelo lost her family due to the war, but the tragedy didn’t hinder her from being positive in life as she constantly try her best to help the vendors in the bazaar.

Although she does not have real battle experience, her brothers who belonged to the Order taught her some basic fighting moves to defend herself against evildoers.

Recommended Jobs

This job is suitable for Penelo since she has high magical power. The Uhlan can use powerful Black Magic spells as well as the Souleater command. Since the disadvantage of this job is its low evasion rate, it important for the other party members to have high evasion rate.

The White Mage is the most suitable job for Penelo, as she can stand at the back of the battlefield and focus on healing her teammates. Since she has the lowest HP, it is appropriate for her to be the one who is the farthest from the enemies.
