Base stats? 10 Str/11 Skl/16 Spd/9 Luck/9 Def in a game with stat caps of 20. And WLvl of 12. There is no sword or lance in the entirety of FE3 that requires WLvl higher than 12. Those are ass kicking stats already.
Growths? 50% Str. 80% Skl. Looking awesome. 20% Speed and 10% Luck...ok, not awesome there, but you don't care about Spd since Paola already doubles non-Heroes for life here (as long as you're not using Javelins since they weigh 20, of course). And it's not a crime to not double Heroes when you're not Oguma/Navarre. 20% Def is average in FE3. So the Luck is her one long term weakness.
She's easily the best or second best melee unit (...while outdoors, of course) in FE3. Joins early, is great at join, and basically stays great through the rest of the game, though outshined by team Oguma/Navarre for the indoor battles.
