|Japanese Name||カーディガンズ (Kaadiganzu)|
|Namesake||The Cardigans (alternative rock band)|
|User (Default Name)||伊佐治 (Isaji)|
"A support-oriented stand that resembles a nurse. Can cure others’ wounds and ailments, using Stand power, and if necessary, inflict a small amount of damage with scalpels and medical tools." (In-Game Description)
"Sensitive, deeply trusting, and easily wounded. Though you avoid people whenever possible, you would never abandon someone in a time of need. Naturally skeptical, you're a truth-seeker who desires to get to the bottom of everything. You spend much of your time alone, pondering the universe." (Personality Evaluation)
In addition to these base stats, the Stand itself gives a bonus of Durability/Speed +2.
Cardigans is the quintissential support Stand - lots of healing techniques (especially valuable in this game where they're rare for non-Support Stands), lots of SP, good Spirit and Speed, but very little damage output. Using a combination of SP Injection and her healing skills outside of battle provides a way to fully restore your party for absolutely free. At level 43, it learns Toxicant, which has the same effects as the item version, but in addition to being a better value in terms of SP cost, the damage scales with Cardigans' Spirit stat.
The recommended tactics is "Flee", maximizing her survivability and speed for the cost of her already negligible offense.
Cardigans' normal attack is physical, short-ranged, has a basic hit rate of 90%, and has a 1% chance of inflicting Dizzy or Fear.
The actual amount restored by healing moves varies if used in battle.
