BattleEdit

Serah is described as a Paradigm Sabetour, using her Paradigm Shift abilities from Final Fantasy XIII to shift between Ravager, Saboteur and Sentinel roles during battle. Each role has its own moveset, allowing Serah to change her fighting style. As a Ravager, Serah uses direct attacks, as a Saboteur she casts dehabilitating spells and as a Sentinel she uses powerful guards and counterattacks. Serah's attacks are mostly mid to long range, but using her to her full potential requires mastery of all her roles and her ability to act while her monster allies execute HP Attacks independent from her.
