Orenze flies around the world at the command of King Zebion.

“Whopper Chop” is Orneze’s special move, which gathers up all of her power to attack everything.
■ More Information About Class Changes
As previously announced, the male and female protagonists have the ability to change classes. There are five classes available to players: “Warrior,” “Martial Artist,” “Mage,” “Priest,” and “Thief.” Players start in the Warrior class, but will be able to change classes by progressing through the story. Level and Skill Points are applied separaetly for each class, so your level for each first time in a new profession will be Level 1.
The battle-time actions and learnable skills for each job class differ greatly. If you’re a Priest, you’ll learn skills that will recover your party, and if you’re a Martial Artist, you can learn powerful attack sills. Since the weapons for each class are also different, by raising the Proficiency of your weapons, you’ll be able to learn more diverse skills. Also, there are some skills that go beyond the class and increase the protagonist’s attribute values.
