Princess Emerald has always been the most free-spirited of the Crystalian Princesses. Holding a deep love for the forest she has developed a mastery of nature craft rivaled only by the elves. She has long been fascinated by the legends of The Forgotten King and the tragedy of his curse.

Princess Emerald has two different offense icons: Melee and Missile 8. This means she can use the Basic Attack action to make a melee attack using her STR against adjacent enemies by rolling 2 blue dice, or a missile attack against enemies up to 8 squares away using her DEX by rolling 2 blue dice and 1 red die. Her only defense attribute is her Armor.
Not surprisingly, her crystal affinity is Emerald, which is associated with DEX.
The support action Scope costs 1 action point to use, and can target an enemy 8 squares away. The “DEX vs DEX” indicates that both she and her target use their DEX attributes to make their offense and defense rolls for the action. Since it is a support action it inflicts no wounds. Instead, if Princess Emerald wins the roll the target suffers Fragile which is a status effect that forces the model to discard their highest dice when making rolls using their ARM.
Her Subduing Shot costs 2 action points. Since it is a red offensive action she may use either of her attributes with an offense icon when using the action. Since Subduing Shot grants her a bonus red dice to DEX she will want to use that attribute to make the roll in most circumstances. Using her DEX also means she can target a model from 8 squares away! If Princess Emerald wins the roll the target not only suffers a single wound it also suffers the status effect Pacify which prevents it from using its unique offensive actions.
The Hunter’s Rations potion is a support potion, meaning a Hero may only drink it during their own turn. When they do it will Heal 2 wounds and grant them the ability Surefoot which allows them to move through difficult terrain unhindered.
Princess Emerald is an excellent ranged Hero who specializes in weakening tough monsters. Her high base DEX and Missile 8 makes it so she can do her damage while staying out harm’s way. Both of her unique actions are potent against monsters with multiple hearts, allowing her to weaken them to be easily picked off by other Heroes. Her potion is nice for its Healing effect, but since it is a blue support potion you need to plan ahead--it can’t “rescue” a Hero during the Consul’s turn like a green emergency potion.
