White: Serge, Riddel, then a tie between Steena, Doc and Starky(None of them really stands out above the others.) Black: (Lynx) Harle, Guile, Grobyc Blue: Orlha, Marcy then either Nikki(basically just an ever so slightly weaker version of Marcy), or Fargo(Fargo's stats are kind of lousy but he can steal) Pierre with hero equipment deserves an honorable mention. Red: Macha, Miki, aaaand... I guess either Kid for stealing or Greco for best physical fighter. Yellow: Leah, Zoah, Norris. Viper Vs. Norris is kind of tough but Norris comes at a more useful time so eh. Green: Karsh, Glenn, and Razzly. All 3 of these bastards are top tier. Green is overpowered. --- A refusal of praise is a desire to be praised twice.
I think green, black and yellow are pretty much set in stone (Razzly trumps Sprigg). White has Serge and Riddel clearly being the best, but the third is something of a toss-up. Blue pretty clearly has Orlha and Marcy, but the third isn't clear (I don't know why there is no love for Leena).
And this is just my personal opinion, but red should be Macha/Miki/Kid.
