As a consequence, she moves slowly, cannot use any magic, and even a rabbit can get the best of her. But this later turns out to be good for her as she obtains a skill known as “Absolute Defense” which was a consequence of her pumping points into VIT, as well as a “Counter Skill” that works against special moves.
