Part 36: Extra Stage 3 (Castile the Brave)Though they are loathe to admit it, there are powers even the strongest Overlord fears. One of these is a great and terrible skill fueled by the burning soul of a hero, capable of consuming even the most terrible evil
Overlord Feinne on Makai Kingdom:
Okay so now were getting to the Extra Stages that have some real benefit to them. Before we get started, I want to note that this next stage does sort of have some spoilers for Phantom Brave. I didnt even mention the potential for such spoilers with regards to Etna and Flonne because its laughable to consider youre reading this and arent familiar with Disgaea at all. But Phantom Brave? Its possible enough that Ill mention it.
Anyway, this Wish requires a bit more juice than the last one did:
And its by far the most rewarding of the first three you can access, since today well be getting ourselves a special character. Despite the higher level requirement Id actually say this one is a bit easier than Etnas map was, the grinding that got you to level 100 should easily make it possible for your party in general.

Wh-Where do you think we are, Marona?
Hmmmmm It looks like another dimension.
Could my brother be here?
I dont know. Well just have to look for him.
Why are you talking to a book, Marona?
This is my world. You shouldnt be able to enter it.
Your world? Who are you?
Im Lord Zetta, the most bad-ass freakin Overlord in the entire cosmos!
Um, Castile? I think hes crazy.
Who the hell are you two, anyway? You dont look like demons
Were Chromas! Those are like warriors who help people!
What!? Ha, youre like twelve! Your world must be full of weaklings!
Cmon. Lets see what youve got little girls!
Oh no! Marona!
Tch Even weaker than I thought.
How could you do something so terrible and evil!?
Evil is actually in my job description. But hey, if she was really a skilled warrior, she could have dodged that.
Marona trusts people! She wasnt expecting you to do a sneak attack!
Mocha, go to Phantom Isle with Marona. Ill deal with the evil man.
Heh Youre picking a fight with me, now?
Im old enough to take care of myself This time, Ill protect Marona!
Are you ready?
Ill make you proud, brother

So, our third extra stage is a fight with Castile the Brave. Its a deeply strange map, actually. We are on a weird little shore with a group of yellow Idols at the start. One of them is a Key to the extension that would connect us to Castile if we felt like walking, which I dont so I just do the standard throwing method. Lets take a look at what were up against in Castile.
So thats our first thing to note right off the bat: Castile is in a vehicle. Its pretty high level but honestly if you got past Etna you should be able to crack it pretty well. And as for Castile herself?
Well, fortunately for us shes only level 50. Shes pretty brutal for a level 50 but if we target a big combo at that Dark Runner chances are well blow her up with a huge hit and shell never even have a chance to get a turn. If she did get a turn outside her buggy her Psycho Burgundy skill is pretty nasty and if anyones vulnerable to Fire chances are theyre going to die. Still, this map is very easy compared to Etna, and a nice breather before the one coming up after it.

Im sorry, Marona I was defeated
But, I cant get discouraged. I have to continue my search!
I wont give up until Ive found my brother!
This might be none of my business, but how do you intend to do that? Youre kind of stuck.
Oh no! I sent Mocha away, and now theres nobody to take me home
System Message: Castile became Zettas friend.
So yeah, Castile decides to stick around (seeing as she has nowhere else to go), giving us our first Extra Character. She might start at level 1, but dont let that fool you. She is a killing machine.
Weapon Skills: Staff, Rifle, Bazooka, Flamethrower
Stat Boosts: HP+4, SP+8!, DEF+4, RES+8!, TEC+8!, MONEY+80%
Unique Skill: Psycho Burgundy (TEC)- Massive fire damage in a fixed area.
Other Notes: Tied with another extra character for highest TEC in the game.
Castile is the first extra character you get and shes pretty damn amazing honestly. Shes got huge amounts of TEC and a quite decent RES stat, both of which are backed up by large growth skills and 150% aptitudes. Shes got a very powerful unique skill in Psycho Burgundy, and shes equally at home with the most viable TEC weapons, Rifles and Bazookas. She can heal well without having to have any items specifically tailored to improving her healing and has plenty of HP and SP again without even really trying because shes a damn extra character and thats how they roll. Her overall stats will never reach the crazy bloated levels the later extra characters get to but frankly the only stats I care about involve making enemy health go down and at that role Castile is pretty damn good. Shes got a large inventory, definitely give her some good shoes (especially if youre going to give her a Bazooka) along with glasses and youve got yourself a powerful character who can hang with the frontline and provides heals and buffs if needed and slaughter the hell out of things if its not. What more is there to say?
