Pets play a big role in your adventures in Ether Saga. Pets can be used to help you fight, defend and even heal your character.
Different pets are useful for different roles. Each pet has a monster family and a pet attitude. The monster family can help you as different families are better against another. The pet attitude will also determine the best role for your pet.
Fierce pets are typically used to help defend you from enemies by fusing. Bright pets are typically used to help heal. Cautious pets are typically used to attack your enemies and finally Normal pets are typically used to help with melding.
In a more advanced setting, different pets may be useful in more than just their basic roles. A Bright pet might be used for something other than healing, depending on the skills available.
