The Scrapper (capitalized) is a battle type in the Metal Shadow universe. It describes an elemancer who excels at close range defense, with secondary proficiency in close range physical offense and standard magic. Its general strategy is hard to pinpoint, since it can perform a variety of roles well. That lack of predictabilaty is its main strength over other battle types, especially its counterpart. Still, physical defense is its mainstay.
Scrappers have minimum speed, evasion, accuracy, and stamina. Their worst nightmare is to face an enemy who can bomb them from afar.
