Nina - Character Skills, Skill Tree, Equipment - Star Ocean: The Divine Force Character

February 9, 2023

Nina is a healer in Star Ocean that you first come across in Delryk Village as an assistant iatrimancer. She is also the daughter of Filberto Deforges and joins you on your quest to help calm the warring nations of the Alter IV.

Nina Deforges iatrimancy allows her to use healing skills and is a great asset to have in your party. She offers no combat-focused skills, so sacrificing damage for healing is a decision you'll have to make.
