As a young girl under great pressure, Elodie's moods have a large effect on her abilities. There are four different "bars" on the mood screen
Afraid --- Angry
Depressed --- Cheerful
Yielding --- Willful
Lonely --- Pressured
Each bar is made up of two opposite moods. If Elodie gets more Angry, she is correspondingly less Afraid.
Each mood bar ranges from 4 of the first emotion to 0 (in the middle) to 4 of the other emotion. If she was 3 Angry and gains 1 Afraid, she will now be 2 Angry.
Elodie's "current mood" is determined by which mood has the highest number. If two bars are tied, then the dominant mood is whichever of the tied bars is furthest to the left.
Moods affect Elodie's skill advancement. Depending on her mood, she gains certain skill types more or less quickly. The following chart shows how moods affect skill growth:
|Social Skills||Royal Demeanor||-1||-1||-1||+1||-2||-1|
It is possible to put Elodie into a neutral mood by getting all the moods to O. If you do this, she won't have any bonuses or penalties to any skills.
