The Commander (capitalized) is a battle type in the Metal Shadow universe. It describes an elemancer specializing in versatile mid range support and weapon offense. They have startling endurance, so they are capable of stalling certain foes, but they are best utilized in the rear of a formation where they can pass along orders, or wield heavy artillery.
The Commander is highly lacking in many regards. Without a weapon they cause pitiful physical damage, and they have low stamina and speed. Their most challenging opponent is a slightly faster, ranged, magic-oriented offender.
