The Legend of Heroes: Trails In the Sky, (Sora no Kiseki or Legend of Heroes can leave you a bit weak for the showdowns which await you at the end of SC). (Or played either Trails in the Sky games, for a minor mention) I loved the whole Estelle/Joshua arc throughout FC and SC. But since any of them can be with Rean by the end, I'm concerned that it won't be as fleshed out.
This also extends to minor characters like Aina. The 3rd as a whole could be seen as this for Kevin, graduating from major supporting character to protagonist. All in a Row: Your party travels like this, which can actually be a nuisance when you have four people in it, since it takes a second or two for your party-members to follow the path you took, meaning a monster you dodged can still nail one of the tailing members of your party and draw you into battle.

He is considered such a Memetic Badass that the primary villain of FC honestly believed that if Cassius hadn't left the army, his plan to launch a coup and militarize Liberl to deter their more powerful neighbors from considering invasion would not have been necessary.

Poison in particular was designed to avert this because it harms you after every turn and the turn you select an Art counts so healing yourself with an item is actually the safer option.
However, the XP needed to gain a level tends to be much lower than in other Falcom games Such as Ysso it's still possible to gain a few levels over the course of the game even when everything only provides 1 XP.

Olivier and Kevin wear these as well, Olivier having several over the course of the plot. Kevin is a priest of the Septian Church, which is loosely based on Christianity.
He's also one of the earlier people who join your party. Sister Carnelia, the supporting character in the eponymous story-within-a-story found on the bookshelves in the Erebonian embassy, also qualifies. At the end of the tale, she rapidly dispatches a group of Jaegers, which the game's story regards as more powerful than the heroes at the beginning of SC.
The Bad Guy Wins: FC, on multiple levels. Not only does Richard's scheme have the desired side effect the hidden villain wanted, as part of the cleanup from the main plot, Cassius takes an extended leave of absence from the Bracers and returns to the Army, so that he can help reorganize the military to make it stronger and a greater deterrent from foreign threats, which is ultimately what the Big Bad was trying to do with his scheme, so even though his plot failed, he still got what he wanted out of it.
In SC, during the curbstomp battle with Anelace and the bracer you didn't pick, they have access to the main party's items.

Just more curious on why they set things up like they did in Cold Steel versus Trails in the Sky. I mean I don't hate her, but I don't like her. I think with all the secrets the cast have, the way she hides her powers from everyone for so effing long and even by the end of the game, she STILL doesn't really explain anything.
She doesn't even explain to rean what she knows about rean's chest- condition for heaven's sake! Now I imagine she has some reasons for keeping some stuff secret But given how nobody knows about them within her class, those people, if they exist, are clearly a secret as well.

I like Emma, but I agree with you about her keeping her secrets for way too long.
