Part 41: Evil Academy- Freshman Class Yearbook!

As characters join and I recruit generics I'm going to give a brief yearbook blurb on them. I'll expand the blurbs on story characters as we go. Before we start, I'll give an overview of character stats and weapon options:

HP: When all of a character's hit points are depleted, they are KO'd and cannot be used any further. Equipped Muscles increase this stat.
SP: Using skills and spells depletes SP. Equipped Orbs increase this stat.
ATK: Most close combat weapons use this stat to determine how much damage they do with regular attacks and skills. Equipped Belts increase this stat.
DEF: This stat is used to defend against physical based attacks.
INT: Most magical attacks use this stat to determine how much damage they do.
RES: This stat is used to defend against magical attacks and also to determine how effective your healing spells are. Equipped Orbs increase this stat.
HIT: This stat is used to determine how accurate your attacks are. Equipped Glasses increase this stat.
SPD: This stat is used to determine how hard you are to hit. Equipped Shoes incease this stat.

Swords: Swords are ATK based and have a standard range of 1. Swords are resoundingly average in power and usefulness. They're never a bad option but also nowhere near as powerful as in previous games.
Fists: Fists are based on both ATK and SPD and have a range of 1. This makes Fist users hard to hit in combat but also means they'll in general do less damage. In addition, Fist skills tend to move those struck, which can be very handy. Fists also provide a lot of counters to those using them.
Axes: Axes are based on ATK and have a range of 1. Axes are the hardest hitting melee weapons, but as a cost will lower your SPD. They're very good overall.
Spears: Spears are based on ATK and have a range of 2. Spears have a long reach and also provide defensive bonuses. Spear skills often move the user, and can be area of effect.
Bows: Bows are based on ATK and HIT and have a range of 4. Bows sometimes leave treasure chests after they kill a target, which can be handy. Bows in the hands of Archers are extremely powerful.
Guns: Guns are based on HIT and SPD and have a range of 5. Guns are now no longer based on just HIT but HIT and SPD. They still can only shoot in a straight line, as in Disgaea 2. Guns don't hit quite as hard as they did in Disgaea 2, but the SPD increases they provide make Gun users very hardy and Guns one of the best weapons in Disgaea 3.
Staves: Staves are based on ATK and have a range of 1. Staves have no skills but instead provide INT. If a character has Staves as a favored weapon they get + 1 range to magic while one is equipped.
Monster Weapons: Monster Weapons come in either Physical, which provide Attack, or Magical, which provide ATK, INT, and give the monster the same range boost a Staff provides. The range of monster attacks varies from monster to monster now.
