By using Talent Points, which can be acquired when you win a battle, your characters can grow and learn various Talents.
There are three types of talents: Ability, Movement, and Battle.
These Talents affect a character's ability. There's an ability Talent that makes it easier to increase your max HP and SP after battle, and another that increases the SP you recover at each turn.
These Talents affect your movement on the map. There's a Movement Talent that makes it easier to avoid enemies on the map and another that lets you purchase items at a discount.
These Talents affect weapons and spells. There's a Battle Talent that lowers the SP consumption of your Arts, and another that increases your chance of learning new Arts upon Awakening.
