Paralogue & Nomination Rules:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/643003-fire-emblem-awakening/65755412
-------------------
Characters who start with Resistance +2 and can learn Demoiselle: Mariabelle.

Characters who start with both skills: Morgan (as Brady's sister)

Characters who can learn either skill: Lissa, Miriel, Cherche, Emmeryn, Female Avatar, Female Morgan.

Character who can inherit the skills and class required: Lucina (Mariabelle, Avatar), Cynthia (Avatar), Kjelle, Severa, Noire, Nah.

Characters who can inherit the skills but not the class required: Owain, Laurent, Gerome, Male Morgan.
-------------------
Nomination/Paralogue

There are 4 skills almost ready to star Paralogue 5. The first two skills that reach 10 or 9 nominations will get their chance early on. Obviously, reaching 10 has a higher priority than 9...And I won't be doing 2 Paralogues in a row, even if we get 3 10/10 nomination here.

The lack of Umbrellafaire is unsettling...well, let's begin.


Resistance +2. Obvious Stuff. If Defense +2 got a C rank, i see no reason not to give this one the same Rank. While Physical attacks are more common, Magic is far more dangerous, so they are kinda balanced. We will probably see a Paralogue for this one...oh well.


Demoiselle gives all a +10 Avoid/Dodge bonus to all male allies within a 3-tile radius from the user.

It's the french for Damsel, Young Lady, Unmarried Lady...and Dragonfly. The Japanese game named this "Secluded Lady". You can have Male kids running around with this thing.

Er...It's a nice bonus. the Dodge one will kill those 1% crit chances enemies, specially bosses, love getting. The avoid is small, but far from useless.

It's effect is gender locked, but I don't feel it's enough to put it in the same level as Avoid +10. B Rank.

C and C

Resistance +2 is good early on as Maribelle can safely take 2-3 magic hits and thus serving as a good mage bait (everyone else has pitiful resistance). But it gets useless around Chapter 12... so C at best.

Demoiselle would be B-rank worth if not for Male-only effect. Also it is pretty ridiculous considering that Maribelle is probably the only user of it (who the hell would reclass to Troubador?). At least it is better than Charm.

I'd give them both C. Neither fall into the 'why would I ever want that on a unit' tier, but neither are particularly good, either.

C and B

As TC says it's at least a little better than Avoid +10...

Resistance +2: C. Not a bad skill, but if you have the DLC then obviously the All Stats +2 book replaces this (and any other +2 skill a character may have), and eventually Limit Breaker. Better than the D options.

Demoiselle: D. Buff isn't significant, there are other choices that are less conditional. It's on a mediocre BASE class. No.

C,C.

Res+2 is alright, but anyone with it has access to Troubadour (if somehow a guy has this skill, kick oneself in the balls.)
Demoiselle is an alright aura, but not worth much. And worse than DS+.

C for Res +2. It's a + Skill, nothing special.

B for Demoiselle. Male story characters outnumber females by one (25 to 24), and since Chrom, required on most maps, is a man, he gets its bonus. Normally I'd call it a C, but giving it to Brady - which is really easy to do by accident - is just hilarious in so many ways that it bumps itself to a B.

Also, editing here, I will cast the final nomination for VETERAN.
