[Author’s Note:If you don’t care about learning every single individual skill Emmanuel has available, or every different stat formula and what each stat does, you can skip this.]

Level: One (0/100EXP)

Health: 350/350 (HP=((BDY*10)+10x [X=Level])

Health Regen: 0.19HP/sec (HP Regen=[(BDY*0.001)*(HP)]/60)

Primary Statistics

Every Blessed individual possesses nine primary statistics. The first six are always the same. Strength and Constitution, which together make the Body stat. Then, Intelligence and Wisdom, which together make the Mind stat. The last three stats are more unique, and serve as a representation of the most potent aspects of the user’s Blessing. Common examples include; Dexterity, Charm, Courage, Faith, Perception, Fortitude, and Endurance.

Strength (STR): 18. Your strength stat is the representation of your physical might, and the level of effective force that you may exert on the environment. A high strength score allows you to hit with an exponentially greater weight than normal physics should allow.

Constitution (CON): 16. Constitution represents the toughness of your body. As constitution increases, skin gets tougher, bones thicken, muscle fibers grow denser. A high constitution will cause knives and swords to bounce off your skin. A higher constitution can allow you to even withstand the most extreme environments with ease.

Body (BDY=STR+CON): 34. The body stat represents the maximum life force (HP) that your body can hold. With enough body, you will have the HP to survive anything up to (And possibly even including) getting shot in the face.

Intelligence (INT): 12. You are not the brightest, but you are not stupid. This stat should be self-explanatory, but in case it is not, here you go. Intelligence governs, obviously, your intelligence. This is mental acuity, thought processing speed, how quickly you acquire new knowledge, and how much knowledge you can store in your cranial archives.

Wisdom (WIS): 13. Wisdom is the statistic of making good choices. It is the gut feeling you get when something is about to go wrong. The wisdom stat is not the knowledge you have, but what you do with it. With a high wisdom stat, intuitive leaps of logic may simply come to you out of the blue

Mind (MND=INT+WIS):25. Mind is the body stat for magic. The more mind you have, the more mana your body can safely handle, allowing you to use your Blessing’s abilities to their maximum. Of course, ‘safety’ was not His Majesty’s main concern with your Blessing, so He just forced the System to give you a lot of extra MP.

Agility (AGI):21 (*1.1)=23. The agility stat determines your easy of motion, control of body (Such as hand-eye coordination and balance), flexibility, and other non-strength physical feats.

React (RCT): 21 (*1.1)=23. The react stat controls your reaction speed (Surprise) as well as the effectiveness of your fast-twitch muscles. You could have the highest agility in the world, but with a react of one, good luck trying to dodge any arrows.

Speed (SPD=AGI+RCT): 46(*1.1)=51. The speed stat is a quantification of how fast you can go. Like strength, a high enough speed stat will overrule physics. Who cares if it should be literally impossible to move that fast? The speed stat does not, and neither should you.

Secondary Statistics

Secondary Statistics are whatever stats the System deems important enough to count, but not enough to be a primary stats. They have a lessened effect on the user, but with time and effort, you can accumulate many of them.

Will (WIL) :15. The measure of your sense of self. The strength of your convictions. The will stat is a direct representation of your never ending desire to move forward. Influences many things.

Charisma (CHA): 17. Charisma is your force of personality. Not just your looks and attractiveness—though that does help—it is also the feeling you give off. It effects how much people like you, and how easy it is to influence them.
