Olwen | Final Evaluation:

If we are going to base solely on Stats, Olwen has an edge over her brother Reinhardt. On Skills, Reinhardt has a good advantage over her sister. It is because he has a Blazing Thunder special move that can give damage to an area near his target. He also has a Vantage passive skill of countering his foes. Although, Olwen has a good amount of SPD that can give her a couple of blows, we recommend pulling Reinhardt instead.
