Rain is a playable character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and one of two starting units. He is a physically-geared knight with two roles: Physical Damage and Support. He is able to cast some Black Magic and White Magic. He currently has three unit variants: the main one (with which the player starts the game), the Global-exclusive "Demon Rain" unit (which could be obtained during the Night of the Pumpkin event), and the "Hunter Rain" unit (available during the collaboration with Monster Hunter Explore).
In both his story unit and the Demon Knight variant, Rain's default attack is a 2-hit attack with Crimson Saber and can generally use the same types of equipment.
Rain's job is listed as Knight. He starts the game at Rarity 2★ and can be awakened up to 6★, and comes equipped with a Broadsword and a Leather Plate. He is classified as a Physical Damage and Support-type of unit. He has no natural element or status resistances and, as a story character, no Trust Master reward.
His awakening materials are the following:
- 3★: Esper Shard x20, Beast Meat x8, Esper Cryst x5, Litrock x3
- 4★: Beast Meat x20, Esper Cryst x10, Litrock x8, Heaven's Ash x3, Sacred Crystal x3
- 5★: Litrock x15, Heaven's Ash x8, Sacred Crystal x5, Spiritsand x3, Holy Crystal x3
- 6★: Fairies' Writ x15, Prismatic Horn x8, Calamity Gem x5, Rainbow Bloom x3, Divine Crystal x3
Rain's stats at his highest levels are as follows (with no passive abilities taken into account), along with the maximum amount of stat points that can be increased through pot-enhancements:
Rain's abilities for the most part are extremely limited until reaching Rarity 6★. At which point he begins to learn a plethora of useful skills including Undermine, which reduces all stats from one enemy by 30%, and Leadership which boosts all stats for the party for 40% for 3 turns, making him a valuable buff/de-buff unit. His resilience also increases in the form of larger HP boosts, although he still lacks damage mitigation as a Tank. However his exclusive-ability equipment gives him even more HP to resist hits.
Depending on his rarity, Rain has either one (2★), two (3-4★), three (5★) or four (6★) ability slots. Moreover, he has affinity to both Black Magic (Lvl 2-7) and White Magic (Lvl 1-5), thanks to which he can be equipped with Cure or Cura to provide minor healing support, for example.
