Protectra(プロテア, Purotea?, lit. Protea), also known as Protera, FOG2, or Shld2, is a recurring spell in the Final Fantasy series. It is often a White Magic spell serving as the second tier of Protect, which mitigates damage done to the target.
Though localized as "Protectra", the spell in Final Fantasy XIII is actually a separate spell.
Protectra is an enhanced version of the Protect spell. Protectra is a level 7 spell White Mages are capable of accessing. Upon casting, Protectra bestows Protect status to all party members in range, giving a 20 point increase to the targets.
Protera is the next level of Protect when charged. It grants Protect to the party leader and an additional party member. It is learned by talking to Kurasame before undertaking The Infiltration of Iscah and requires a Defense Magic stat of 70.
