When you return to Granseal to get the Dynamite to unblock the tunnel to the north, Janet will see you as you leave. She’ll tell you that she knows her love, Elric, is with the Force. Astral at first thinks that she wants to take Elric away, but she asks to join so that she can be with him again and makes a useful addition to the Force. Her special promotion item is the Silver Tank.

Janet’s Headquarters Quote:
“I’m afraid of battle, but I’ll never run from the enemy.”

Statistics & Growth

Initial Statistics

24 35 0 41 27 29 5 Steel Arrow None

The graphs below show the growth rate of Janet’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.
