Everyone, quick - appreciate Olivia by staring at her!
Yet another character that I feel I’ve been under-appreciating as of late.
Olivia was never my strongest unit in Awakening, but she was always one of my most useful.
In FEH, she’s been great for training new units. Having two dancers and a healer made Training Tower grinding for levels and SP much faster.
She’s also surprisingly well-rounded for a support unit that’s not supposed to be on the front lines. She doesn’t have all of her DFs yet, but she’s not that far behind my +10, 20 DF Masked Marth.
I’d really like to see her get a PRF - a support-focused weapon with just enough power to carry her through short fights. She’s already good, but the right weapon would make her even better.
Lastly, and most subjectively - I think Olivia is adorable.
I don’t just mean that she has a cute design (which she does), or that her timid mannerisms are endearing (which they are).
I mean that in both gameplay and story, Olivia is tiny and underpowered but still tries her very best to be helpful.
Even if she isn’t the most powerful unit or the most dynamic character, she puts a smile on my face, and that’s more than enough.
Bonus Olivia Appreciation Quote!
