While I, obviously, have no idea how the game code looks, I might have a theory about why this happened. What if your Nero and you got your turns at the same time? I think it was going to heal Charlie, but, because it got replaced, healed the new demon instead?

Hmm... interesting. Are you sure the Bmola was at full health? With Pariah present, and the message log indicating damage done to Pariah'd allies, it's likely the Bmola had some damage done to it.

That said, even if it was damaged, I'm not sure why the Nero would choose to top it off instead of healing the much more damaged targets it had available. I'll look into it, and thank you for the report. :)

Hmm.. actually.. do you know if the Nero knew Soothe, by any chance? Soothe would only have been usable on the Bmola, and at low SP, it may have been the only heal the Nero could afford (Soothe is cheaper than most heals, after all.)

The AI would normally be hesistant to spend its last SP, but with only 8 HP remaining, Nero would be in "screw it, I'm dead next turn anyway" mode and do anything it thought it could do now before it dies.

Oops! I totally missed that line! Then yeah, that's almost certainly what happened: with its HP that critical, Nero wasn't willing to wait for SP to use one of its other abilities (figuring it'd likely be dead before it got another turn) and used the only one it had the SP to cast, even though that could only heal the barely wounded guy. If Nero'd been healthier, it'd have likely waited for more SP rather than using it on a relatively healthy target.

Whoops right, that's probably what happened. :roll: I was skipping turns and the last thing I saw was freshly summoned demon getting heals and that confused me.
