Each demon has strong and weak attributes. Skills with attributes that the demon is good at will have a “+” skill aptitude, making them more powerful. However, if a demon inherits a skill that it is not good at, it will receive a “-” aptitude, making it less powerful. The goal is to create a party with skills that suit your strategy, whether you want t otake advantage of their power or prioritize skills that are less powerful but let you exploit enemy weaknesses more easily.
