    cause I think its high time that folks get to see the English names for 
    this guys skill's on an FAQ and be able to know what they are doing. 
    Steal this FAQ and I'll be forced to go to your place of living, smash 
    your computer, and Steal all your Kit-Kat Bars.

    ------------------------- 
    I. Ried as a Character 
    ------------------------- 
    
    Name: Reid Hershel 
    Age: 18 
    Height: 5'10" 
    Weight: 137 lbs. 
    
    Most Notable Characteristic: Gluttony 
    Weapon: Sword, L-Sword, Knife, Axe, 
    Lance, Spear, Pole-Arm 
    
    Ried is a great character; he has personality, a bottomless pit of a 
    stomach and great skills as a swordsman. In this FAQ we will be focusing 
    on the last part, his Sword Skills, how to learn them, abuse them, and 
    so on. 
    
    
    ------------------------- 
    II.  Combo's for Ried 
    ------------------------- 
    
    Ried is more difficult to make independent combos with then Farah. 
    This is because his special moves don't link into each other and can 
    sometimes get on your nerves because of it. He CAN combo, just not 
    as ludicrously. Here is how it is done 
    
    Normal String ---- Special Skill ----- Sacred Skill 
    
    
    ------------------------- 
    III. Learning his Moves

    SPECIAL SKILLS 
    
    If you see the skill listed but it is in blue lettering then you need 
    to raise your slash or thrust level as listed in the FAQ. Too bad 
    there isn't a numeric measure of the level, only a bar. But if you 
    feel like keeping track, the bar starts off at level 1 for both Slash 
    and Thrust, keep track and you won't get too lost.

    NOTE: The amount of times you use a skill may be 
    less then listed. Just keep checking the skills menu 
    when practicing to learn the next move. When 
    you see the name of the move you are looking 
    for in Blue letters, you can stop practicing.

    I would like to thank Yeblos for translating the Japanese 
    moves. I would like to thank Kung Lee for writing the FAQ 
    that I based these off of. I really didn't do much, this is just 
    an FAQ to make peoples life a wee bit easier. I would also like 
    to thank RPGFreaks for clarifying how to do the extension 
    for Omega Demon Chaos and Omega Seal. Thanks to all of you 
    I was able to compile your information into this FAQ for all 
    of us to enjoy.
