In a battle, you are given up to three levels of attacks and each level provide up
to three skills. Level 1 requires 10 AP, Level 2 requires 20 AP and Level 3 
requires
30 AP. Below is a list of the skills for each character, including the temporary 
playable character, Bosch and How to get each skill for each character. Besides 
those 
skills, there are also Shield Skills. Shield Skill can be equiped by any 
character as 
long as the Shield has an empty slot. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----



- To steal, You must have a Shield and equip the Shield Skill 'Steal' or 'Snatch'
- To Buy Skills in Fairy Colony, You must have a room and set it to "Skills", 
then you 
  put three smart Ants to that room; Move to that room and talk to the ant at the 
  counter, you should see a full list of Skills
