I don't know about anyone else but I'd love to see a full-blown feature article on this. "The Evolution of Phantasy Star IV" or something to that effect.

Hee hee. It's hard not to laugh when Demi is in your party because she's SO much shorter than everyone else. That's one reason I like her, is because I just laugh all the time when she is in my party.

I always did that, as when I started playing the game, my brother pointed that out to me. So when I play the game, Alys is usually in front until that little section where you get Rune (since he's at level...17, I think?) the first time he joins you. Then I put Gryz in front when he joins, and he stays there until Demi joins, and once Wren joins, he's in front the rest of the game. Really makes the game easier, as it keeps the defensively weak people alive longer while the androids, with their high defense scores, high hit points, and self-regeneration, just take the damage like sponges. I'd say that when I play the game, Rika probably dies most frequently and she's usually in the middle. I think her defense should have been a little bit better.


Actually I think Rika's defense is fine. It's true, she probably dies most frequently, but there is always the option to equip her with a shield instead of a claw. So it's really a player's choice, a balanced Rika that doesn't die so often or an all offensive Rika which packs a punch but is a bit on the defensive side.

Yes, it looks like Demi needs to walk really fast to keep up, no wondering considering the rest is quite a bit taller. She will almost need two steps for every step the others take.

Good point, and I do give her two claws since I am a bit of an aggressive player. Either way, she died frequently, and I did think her defense was a bit lacking. At the very least, she could've had a few more hit points. It was really weird to me...if you level characters up enough, Kyra actually overtakes Rika in max HP, which is just odd to me. It's not by much, but it's still odd. :?

See, the reason I laugh when she's in my party is because she does take about 2-3 steps to everyone else's 1, just as Fogeltje said. It's beyond hysterical. Seriously, when I'm in a REALLY bad mood, playing PSIV with Demi in my party gives me enough laughs to improve my mood a bit. But in a way, you have to feel sorry for her, especially since she can't do crap to fix her shortness problem. But it's still beyond hysterical. :rofl:

She's a cyborg or android or whatever! She's the only person on Motavia that can hook up to distant systems by herself, she should be able at least to make herself a little taller. Put on some good boots or something. XD

That would make her taller but her stride wouldn't be any wider. I'm guessing Wren built her that way so she don't look imposing to humans.

But then humans probably look imposing to her; if you put her next to any of the kids running around in the game (which all seem like they're under ten years old), she's not much taller. I'd understand Wren's point there, but if that's the case, he seriously overdid it to the point that it seems kind of counterproductive. Can she actually reach the buttons and such towards the back of some of these computer terminals? It's really hard to tell, but to me, it looks like she can't. Knowing Wren, building her that short had some purpose, and I think it has to do with the master-servant power hierarchy.

Actually I think he built her that small so she can hook herself up to the systems more easily. If she were as big as Wren, the connection points of the systems would have to be larger as well.
