Key stats worth increasing through nature if possible.
Complementary stats that matter, but not to the point of picking them over key stats for nature increase.
Relatively worthless stat that can safely be decreased through nature.

Peri values a +Attack boon to increase the Brave Lance's effectiveness. Should the player use her outside of such a build, +Speed is good for allowing her to double more heroes.

Due to her physical frailty, a -Defense bane will allow Peri to keep her HP stat for magical soaking. -Resistance can be used as well if resisting magical attacks is of little concern.

Skill Sets
Stabbity Stab (Full Offense)
Brave Lance+ A Death Blow 3
Draw Back B Drag Back
Luna C Hone Cavalry

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Attack / -Defense
  • Weapon: Brave Lance+
  • Assist: Draw Back / Flexible
  • Special: Luna
  • A Slot: Death Blow
  • B Slot: Drag Back
  • C Slot: Hone Cavalry / Flexible
  • Sacred Seal: Attack +1

A Brave Weapon set for Peri.

Using her naturally high speed the playful slayer could potentially quad-strike her opponent utilizing cavalry buffs.

Fury is used to increase her overall bulk and offensive stats.

Drag Back can be used to retreat from the enemy if Peri engages, doubling as support should the opponent live.

If used with Hone Cavalry, Brave Lance's -5 Speed penalty becomes irrelevant.

Immoral Patience (Budget All-Purpose)
Killer Lance+ A Fury 3
Reposition B Quick Riposte 3
Luna C Hone Spd 3

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Speed / -Defense
  • Weapon: Killer Lance+
  • Assist: Reposition / Flexible
  • Special: Luna
  • A Slot: Fury
  • B Slot: Quick Riposte
  • C Slot: Hone Speed / Varies on team
  • Sacred Seal: HP +3

An all-purpose budget build with Peri's Killer Lance+.

Luna is chosen for synergy with Quick Riposte and Killer Lance: Peri will always activate Luna on the counterattack's follow-up.

Fury is used to increase Peri's overall bulk, and as such is a staple A slot passive.

Quick Riposte 3 is absolutely not mandatory and the second level of the skill works just as well.

All Ghillied Up (Anti-Linde)
Killer Lance+ A Darting Blow 3
Swap B B Tomebreaker 3
Luna C Threaten Def 3

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Speed / -Defense
  • Weapon: Killer Lance+
  • Assist: Swap / Flexible
  • Special: Luna
  • A Slot: Darting Blow
  • B Slot: Blue Tomebreaker / Swordbreaker
  • C Slot: Threaten Defense / Varies on team
  • Sacred Seal: Speed +1

A budget build focusing on sniping Blue tome users such as Linde and doubling any unit she can lay her hands on.

Due to the Killer weapon's effect bringing Luna's cooldown to 2, Peri is able to activate her special skill on any unit that can counter as long as she follows-up.

If one would rather hard-counter the sword lords Lucina or Ryoma, Swordbreaker can be used instead.

  • Speedy Cavalier
  • Good magical soak
  • Great attack for her movement group


  • Physically frail for an offense unit
  • Competes for a blue slot, which happens to be Reinhardt's colour typing.

Peri the playful slayer is a lance-wielding cavalier with great speed and attack.

Her offensive stats are very good for her movement group, placing second in Speed and Attack amongst all horse riders.

She could also soak magical damage quite well with a resistance value equal to Titania and Olwen at 30.

Unfortunately, Peri suffers from physical frailty yielding as much HP as Clarine at 35 and physical defense as low as Eliwood.

Overall, Peri is a strong speedy lance wielder on a horse with bad physical defense, and could be included in horse teams to compensate for her weaknesses and turn her great offensive stats excellent. As such, the playful slayer is a decent lance wielder to have on your team turned excellent when in Cavalry Emblem.

  • Great Attack
    • With 33 attack, Peri places 2nd with Abel amongst all cavaliers.
    • She reaches a native 44 attack with the Killer Lance+.
  • Great Speed
    • Peri has the same amount of speed as attack, and again places 2nd with Clarine.
    • This means that she will naturally avoid double attacks from almost all units in the game.
  • Respectable Resistance
    • It will require Peri a neutral magic hit of 65 attack to be KO'd.
    • A hit from a green mage such as Julia will need 55 attack to take the psychopath down.
    • A neutral double attack would require 48 attack.
    • This translates to 40 attack for a double from a green mage such as Nino.
  • Detrimental HP and Defense
    • Peri is one of the worst physical soakers in the game for an attacker, requiring nothing but 58 neutral attack to be slain.
    • Damage from axe wielders such as Hector will require a very small 49 attack to one-hit Peri.
Team Options

Peri is weak to physical attacks, especially Hector. Units who can destroy him such as Lucina or Xander pair well with our playful slayer.

Of course, she can be included in Cavalry-centric teams to bolster her stats to turn her into a fast and powerful unit.

"Stabbity Stab" is a full-offense Brave Weapon set and is highly recommended with cavalry buffs.

"Immoral Patience" is a general all-purpose build and can be used in teams looking for a unit who can safely bait sword units.

"All Ghillied Up" is an anti-Blue Mage build which can also score many follow-up attacks. It can go well with a team having problems dealing with blue mages, or sword lords if you choose Swordbreaker.


It is difficult to inflict follow-up attacks on Peri, so damage nukers are a big threat to her.

Any axe wielder such as Cherche, Frederick or Michalis will tank any damage Peri delivers with ease, followed by her death.

A mage wielding Lancebreaker will pierce through her resistance, and caution should be taken around Linde or Spring Lucina in case they wield such a skill.
