She's pretty much like a tank I will be comparing in the usual part of my review. What makes Charlotte very good is her custom Sentinel ability in Royal Guard which acts as your teams saving grace. Another great thing about Charlotte is she has a good SPR stat which is a huge + for her cause as most tanks we have in the game they have a low or not high SPR stat when Charlotte has a 104 SPR which is very good for her LB, and heal options if you were to inclined to give her some cures. This also makes her better to tank in specific content where enemies are more MAG based than physical. She could handle both cards of the job which is great for Charlotte. She also comes with the niche ability of Auto-Regen which adds more to her tankiness as a factor cause the extra bits of HP she gets back per turn could very well be enough to survive a fatal blow. In all, she has the stuff to be a great tank Great HP/DEF/SPR to tank the content in the next upcoming months or so. Cons: She has both Undead / Demon Slayers which she will not be getting to use if she's your main tank as much slayer abilities in my honest opinion are more suited for offensive units cause they make full use of it. Charlotte is a tank, so she will not be attacking as much more so guarding attacks, the only time she will be doing damage is with her debuff move in Power Break. Trust Mastery Award: Equip Heavy Shields isn't a terrible TM, nor is it a super great one to press time into. It's worth getting if you want units of yours to be more tanky as Heavy Shields give the highest DEF boosts in the game as of far. This could be very helpful for some mages, or some other units you want to be more suited to tank hits. So, it's not a bad TM for now. Comparing to Other Units: - Cecil Both units have a 'Take Damage for Ally' Ability. Cecil has higher W/G Magic meaning if needed he could take full use of better skills. Charlotte has a higher HP (After Passive), DEF, and SPR stat as compared to Cecil. Cecil has more support options i.e. Cura, and Dispel. Overall Verdict: Charlotte would be better in terms of needing a pure tank cause as I've listed above she has better stats than him and does exactly what he does but better. The thing that made Cecil 5* that good was the fact he could jump into attacks with his Sentinel at a 30% chance as opposed to Charlotte who has a amazing 50% chance to jump into attacks with her Royal Guard which makes her a great asset to any team. She doesn't have much support options besides debuffing with Power Break, as Cecil would with him being a backup healer, and removing potentially dangerous debuffs to your enemies. But, I still say Charlotte would be a better slot in this case. Conclusion: Charlotte is a very good tank to get your hands on, I would try to pull for her for future content as she is a solid slot in doing what she needs to do. A wonderful chance in 50% guarding attacks sounds great, she could even play the healer card more effective cause of her having a good SPR if you even want to build that way. So, yeah summon for Charlotte I fully recommend her.
