OverallEdit

Elen is the first playable healing unit in Binding Blade, and thus plays an important role as the team's only medic until Clarine joins in Chapter 4, however this is unfortunately her only niche in the game, with her being overshadowed by every other healer who joins later than her in at leastone area right up unil the game's closing chapters. Saul joins soon after Elen in Chapter 6 with better base stats and a better Staff rank, Clarine also joins with similarly low magic, but with a mount giving her a 2 movement advantage over Elen, and Cecilla joins in the mid-game with all of these aforementioned strengths; prepromoted base stats, good weapon ranks and a mount.

If the player sticks with Elen for the duration of the game, they will be rewarded with a high utility Bishop, due to her high magic growth, and high staff rank by that point in the game, however even in this role she has to compare to Niime, who joins in the late-game with a huge 21 Magic and A weapon ranks, albeit very frail.

In the end, while Elen is definitely a usable unit she has much better options even within a few chapters after her recruitment.
