QUESTION, DARLINGS: for mimes, do they retain any/all of the abilities they mimic, or do they immediately forget them after they're performed? like, can they fight/cast spells/whatevs on their own or do they NEED someone to do it first so they can copy? THIS IS A DUMB QUESTION, SRY

Hello!

Mime's do not retain any abilities that they copy.

Additionally, they can only immediately mimic the actions of the last ally that acted before them. Therefore if the last action preformed an ally casting Fira then your character can cast Fira. However, this doesn't mean they can "choose" what the last action they preform was. If someone else then casts Ice, the Mime would lose the ability to cast Fira but then be able to cast Ice, but they must be quick enough to perform the mimic immediately or the action will be nullified.

okay, ty! are they able to do anything without copying it first? can they attack with, say, a knife (or whatever weapon of choice), or cast a basic spell? also just so i'm sure, when you say "ability" do you only mean magic, or do you mean literally any ability--someone does a backflip, they can do a backflip, etc. the ff wiki wasn't terribly clear on it.

As Mime's require going through Apprentice training just like any other Thieves Guild based character, they do have access to basic things like low level spells and simple attacks without having to Mimic those actions.

Regarding what they can mimic specifically, they are able to mimic spells, special abilities (a Sentinel's SteelGuard, a Thief's Steal, etc) and basic actions (backflips for example) but only if the action is completed immediately (as in one or two seconds) after the initial person completed the action and they may not always be successful as the Mime has to work within their own ability limitations. As Mime's tend to have average "stats" they might not be strong enough to pull off leaping as high as a Dragoon because they are not as strong, or raging as long as a Berserker due to their stamina not being as good, etc. Additionally, there is always a chance for failure in every action and we expect that to be taken into consideration as well.

Example: If a Mime wanted to try mimicking making a pie, they wouldn't be able to mimic the whole process after it was done, they would have to attempt to mimic each individual step of pie making and may not be able to successfully do some of the steps due to basic human error.

Also, they would not be able to mimic item use without having a copy of that item on their person already.
