Summon Familiars In Battle
V relies on his familiars: Shadow, Griffon, and Nightmare to fight against enemies. Shadow mainly for close-quarter situations, Griffon for long-range enemies, and Nightmare for tough enemies and bosses!

Your familiars are powerful allies that can decimate an enemy's life bar. However, they do not have the capabilities to kill enemies. Therefore, you must be the one to strike the killing blow.
