The daughter of nobility, Primm is rebelling against an arranged marriage set forth by her father against her wishes, and is instead chasing a solider by the name of Dyluck. When Dyluck’s mission against a wicked witch who is stealing people’s life force fails to return to the Kingdom of Pandora, Primm sets out to find Dyluck, running into Randi in the process. This fateful encounter would thus tie Primm to the fate of the world.
Primm is one of the two magic users in Secret of Mana, posessing healing and support magic. She can be either the second or third member of your party. You can first encounter Primm in Pandora Castle, and can find her even after having Popoi join. Primm starts with the Spiked Knuckles, thus giving you access to the Glove weapons class.
Note that if you opt for Primm to join before heading to your objective the Dwarven Village to get to the Underground Palace (and thus, having Popoi join), you will first need to enter the Haunted Forest, or she will instead go to the Haunted Forest herself upon entry to the Gaaia’s Navel caves. You must progress to the skull statues and strike them with a weapon before Primm will agree to go to the village with you. Note that the Chobin Hoods in the Forest can be tough at this stage of the game if you do not gain a few levels first.
Primm is generally more physically capable than Popoi but does not approach Randi in terms of physical prowess. However, as a majority of this game is about physical combat over magic combat on the player side, Primm will still be in the thick of combat. Primm does decently well with melee weapons and can hold her own.
Primm will also occasionally have unique armor that only she can wear, thus, at certain points in the game, her stats may vary.
Primms magic generally focuses on support with a few offensive items mixed in. She can use Cure Water to restore HP, Remedy to eliminate bad status effects, charge weapons with special effects and elemental properties, and temporarily boost status. This also makes Primm’s magic the easier of the two magic characters to skill up at a whim, though lengthy. The payoff is worth it though, as each level Primm gains in an elemental noticably boosts the duration status magic occurs for.
Keeping Primm up to date on melee weapons, and even a few ranged ones, is also a good idea. Primm can be a fairly balanced combatant, but her support magic is where she really shines.
