[edit] MInerva, Princess of Macedon

Minerva is the sister of Michalis, Macedon's ruler, and is the eldest princess of Macedon. Her sister Maria is held hostage by the Dolhr/Grust allied forced in order to coerce Minerva and her Whitewings (the other members are Catria, Palla, and Est) into fighting for them; however, this makes she and her party mutinous and they decide to join Marth's cause. Marth's party eventually has to battle her brother, who had killed their father and usurped the throne of Macedon. Minerva is recruited carrying the special axe Hauteclere.

[edit] Strengths and Talents

As Minerva is a prepromote, she won't be as good as others who have had more time to level up and achieve higher stats than she can. However, if you still want to use her for her large movement range and sacred axe, her growths are decent. Minerva's got pretty well rounded stats overall, except for her Defense and Hit Points. Even as a Dracoknight, her HP growth is only 40%, which is pretty much the best she gets even if she reclasses. This is balanced out by the fact that she has decent speed and a great luck growth, which helps her out with evading attacks. Her Defense is above average with a great 30% growth. This somewhat negates the disadvantage of her low HP. However, the fact that she's a prepromote means that she has very few levels in which to abuse her growths, and in the end, some players prefer to just kill her for her good weapon. Less sadistic players have her join you for it; either way, it's up to you.
