    You can get Minerva by using a Green Orb Summon. If we compare her to her brother Michalis, who is also a Green Axe wielder and a Flyer, they are at par in terms of HP/ATK/DEF. The difference starts at their SPD. Minerva has a max SPD of 36 while her brother only has 26. She also beats him by a couple of points in RES. She has a max RES of 25 and Michalis only has 19.

    Even though her RES is 25, be sure to keep her away from magic users.

Minerva | Final Evaluation:

Minerva is a strong Green Axe unit. Her movement speed of Flying makes her the second choice if you don’t have Hector (Camilla is also good after Hector). She can easily move around the terrain but weak against Archers. With that, you can inherit the Iote’s Shield from Michalis. Her Life and Death 3 Passive Skill is OP. It is also included as one of the top Passive Skills you should inherit. The Life and Death 3 can grant her ATK/SPD+5 and inflicts her foe DEF/RES-5.

Life and Death 3 is unlockable at 5★ and costs 200 SP.
