Arte Description and History
In its origin in Tales of Symphonia, the arte consists of Colette Brunel falling at the enemy while having a small chance of stealing something from them. Repeated usage unlocks the improved Item Rover for her. Retaining its original name of "Item Steal", this arte returns in Tales of Xillia as Leia Rolando's partner skill. While Leia is the partner character of the link, she has a chance of stealing an item from a downed enemy. In Tales of Xillia 2, the "Alter Support" skill can switch the effect to steal Gald instead. Ludger Will Kresnik can also copy this skill with his own "Mirror" skill.
