Princess Garnet / Dagger

Princess Garnet Til Alexandros XVII / Dagger Young, beautiful, caring and extremely naive, Princess Garnet (a.k.a. Dagger) is the heir to the throne of Alexandria and the love-interest in Final Fantasy 9. With the coming of one certain theater / thieving troup intent on helping her escape from a confusion-filled, Dagger heads off on an adventure that will easily change the world. Always there and always truthful, she easily becomes one of the most important characters in this story.

Dagger can always remember being the Princess of Alexandria, and knows that in the future she will become the queen of the beautiful land. Her dreams have been haunted by a disastrous storm in a far-away village recently, however. What this means she does not know, but she does know that she must uphold her Royal duty to the last.

Dagger wields a rod or a "racket" of sorts (which throws a ball of energy-stuff at the enemy) which, to be completely honest, is extremely weak. Her strength does not lie in physical attacks, however. Dagger is adept at the art of White Magic, and has the power to control Eidolons, or summons. These abilities are extremely powerful, and allow for easy destruction of any enemy that may come upon your path.

Summoning Eidolons

The princess can learn to summon powerful Eidolons by equipping gemstones until she gains enough AP to summon the deity on her own. Most of her summoning involves powerful elemental and non-elemental attacks. Eidolons will not always appear during a summons. They always appear the first time you summon them, and thereafter the chance of them appearing during the summons is random. Usually, they just send their weapon to do the dirty work.

When the Eidolon appears during the summon animation, the attack is nearly twice as powerful. When Dagger summons an Eidolon while tranced the summon attack reoccurs automatically. Dagger can raise an Eidolon's attack power by using the Boost ability.

Summoning Secrets

Dagger's Odin summons has a certain percentage chance to cause instant DEATH to an enemy. However, if Odin fails to cause death, no damage is inflicted whatsoever unless the "Odin's Sword" support ability is equipped. This causes wind damage to all enemies in case instant DEATH fails to occur. The formula for the chance to cause instant DEATH is:

[Dagger's magic power/4 + difference between Daggers' Level and Monsters' Level]

The Atomos summons has a different attack percentage depending on whether the full animation or just the partial animation is shown:

[Full animation = (30 + # of Amethysts)% of enemy's HP]
[Short animation = 2/3 of Full animation formula]

The strength of other summons will increase depending on the type and number of jewels in your party's inventory; the more jewels you have, the greater the strength of a particular summons. Check out the list below to view the association between a summons and a jewel.
