I never thought I would see you again. I have no memory of my mother or sister... So I thought of Lachesis as my mother, and you as my sister.

Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Selphina joins as a level 8 Arch Knight with a B-rank in bows. Her base stats are poor for her level, but thanks to her high bow rank, she can contribute. Her growths are worse than Robert's, but since her base stats, base level, and bow rank are higher, she is the better unit.

Selphina's main advantage is the B-rank in bows, letting her use the Brave Bow at base, among others. With the Brave Bow, she can chip down enemies or one-round them without taking a counterattack. She also has the Accost skill. The skill lets her start another combat round if she fights someone with lower AS and HP. If she is attacking someone who cannot counter, this is useful, because it lets her one-round. For example, she can shoot an enemy eight times with the Brave Bow if she doubles. However, if a Ballista or another dangerous enemy targets her, the skill can get her killed. As long as the player exercises caution while using Selphina, she will be alright, though.

Selphina has several flaws. First of all, she can only use bows, so she can never counter at 1-range. Second, she suffers movement and stat penalties indoors. While she keeps her main weapon type indoors, letting her contribute from 2-range, this is still a flaw. Outdoors, she has good mobility thanks to her mount, but she loses it indoors. Finally, her constitution is poor and unlikely to improve much. As a bow user, she cannot capture enemies, either - but with a constitution this low, she would not be good at it anyway.

Overall, Selphina is a decent chip damage dealer, especially on outdoor maps. Since most bow users in Thracia are mediocre or weak units, the player is unlikely to train them. For that reason, when Selphina joins, she will likely have exclusive access to the Brave Bow. Besides, she is mounted outdoors, making her mobile. Her player phase damage output is decent with Accost, but her enemy phase is horrible. She is a bit difficult to use, but definitely more usable and better at base level than the units she joins with.

Aside from the aspects mentioned above, Selphina gives Carrion the Paragon Sword. They have a conversation in Chapter 9 when Selphina gives to him. It is an excellent weapon, especially for training weaker units. If one wants to count this as Selphina's utility, she is quite helpful even if she never enters combat.

Personality and character

Selphina is nondescript, and given no explicit personality traits. Her ending suggests that he is very kind and willing to give to those worse off than her.

Endings

Selphina, Beautiful Bow Knight
After the new Kingdom of Thracia was established, she retired from her position of leading the royal guard. Instead, she used her mansion as an orphanage to take care of deprived children. Many of the children that Selphina saved lived on to become great heroes. Selphina was later called the Mother of Thracia, and her stories were told for many generations.
