Fia (フィア Fia ), also known as Fiaa is one of the female protagonists of Riviera: The Promised Land, and is a playable character.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Fia has long green hair and green eyes. She wears a long green skirt, and a black vest over a long-sleeve white blouse. Her hair is tied with a matching ribbon.
Fia is a teenage girl with a caring personality. Even though she may look shy at first sight, she turns out to be quite brave. She's also rather intelligent and knowledgeable, making her appear more mature than her age suggests. She's quite spiritual and is usually the one to calm Lina down, and makes sure everyone is alright, particularly Ein. She, like all the girls, show hints of affection for Ein.
One day, Fia and Lina discovered the unconscious body of Ein and decided to nurse him back to health at their house. Once he awoken, she and Lina introduce themselves as residents of Elendia. This occurs around the time the village lost contact with the Arcs. She asks her grandfather to allow her and Lina to investigate the mystery, but he refuses, angering her and prompting her and Lina to go without permission. At first, they tell Ein to stay at home because of the danger, but he takes it upon himself to investigate where they went off to and accompany them. Fia then uses a magic circle to teleport the group to Lacrima Castle. Fia expresses a deep concern for the Arcs and, while there, the group saves an Arc named Serene from the clutches of Malice.
After they manage to get rid of Malice, the four proceed deeper into Lacrima, reaching it's highest tower. There, they discover Isher, one of the Accursed, and learn the truth about Ein. She decides to align her cause with Ein's, who realigned himself with Ursula to protect Riviera.
Abilities and WeaponsEdit
Fia has the ability to purify and heal herself and her party members. Within the party, she is the designated healer; creating potions and elixirs from healing herbs found in the environment, although she is not limited to support only. During battle, she is particularly fluent with a rapier, and is elementally versatile.
Among the playable characters, Fia is the most balanced. being efficient in both physical attacks and magic, while having the second best speed, the best healing abilities, great exclusive weapons, and great utility overall. Her high magic stat is exploited in her book, sword, staff and spear overskills, which can do huge damage if the player can identify the right situations to use them. Her rapier normal skill has low WT and quickly builds up the Overdrive meter. Her slight resistance to the three elements is also a plus; just watch out for her Darkness vulnerability. Before she gets Appassionato, her Level 3 rapier overskills deal poor damage, making it difficult to end S-Rank battles with her for the first half of the game, though this is only a concern in scoring runs or if the player needs to raise her affection for certain endings. She has no resistance to the Sleep or Poison statuses, so the player needs to be careful if Plant or Skeleton-type enemies are in battle. She also has the second lowest HP in the game, but she can be moved out of the way of strong physical attacks if necessary. In short, among the heroines, the player will likely be using her most often, as she can carve out a niche in almost every battle.
