On your way to Creed’s Mansion, you’ll sto by the Elven Town. Here you’ll hear that a young elf, Elric is missing. When you reach the passage to Creed’s Mansion, Oddler will say he hears someone crying for help, you follow him into a small area where there is a pool. In this pool you’ll find Elric, however saving him isn’t as easy as you might think, as the pool belongs to the Harpy and she’s not gonna let her meal go without a fight! Once you’ve defeated the monsters, Elric will join up in gratitude. His special promotion item is the Silver Tank.

Statistics & Growth

Initial Statistics

21 37 0 40 25 25 5 Steel Arrow None

The graphs below show the growth rate of Elric’s statistics throughout the game, starting at level 1 (level 1 stats are based on growth rate if the character joined at any other level). These are adapted from the ASCII/Famitsu Shining Force II Guide Book, and so should be pretty accurate! However, please note that the charts are based on a standard game, in which no extra training is given to any characters. The growth may vary with extra training, and even from game to game, due to the random level-ups.
