    She looks like she's very viable for people who are just starting out, or are lacking a 7* chainer.

    She has 2 chaining abilities, both of which with Onion Slice frames. While relatively difficult to chain compared to DR frames, it's still not as difficult as QH. It's also a relatively large chaining family as of now, with Hyoh and Loren as commonly found friend units as chaining partners. The damage multiplier is definitely lackluster at 4.5x (with 100% lb fill buff to herself) and 5x respectively, but it's what you can expect from a 4* base.

    What makes her stand out as a good partner for those friend units (for me, at least) is her LB. It's an aoe 9-hit attack with a 3-turn 84% def break at a mere 20 cryst cost

    She does have 2 flaws, though. The first is her very limited equipment selection. This, at least, can be resolved with some trial gear and some 3* base and 4* base tmr. The second is a much bigger flaw. It's her abysmally low stats (even compared to other 4* base chainers like aura and even agrias).

    Of course this is all assuming the wiki details are accurate. I'm still really impressed by the 84% def break (on a 6* max, 4* base unit).

    Anyways, I just got to making this post because I'd been looking at "help me" threads of returning players or newbies with no meta chainers yet, and I really didn't want to recommend those people enhance Agrias (when she's the best they've got for chaining with the top damage dealers).

    Too add to this: It requires the LB to be maxed out. :)
    The base value is still a 60% Def break a 6*.

    She's low budget Option to pair with OnionSlice chaining family and great breaker for OTKO with physical DD

    I wonder who proofread that. A female character having a name starting with "diet" is just asking for gumpi to be made the butt of even more (well deserved) jokes.
