Intelligence: Average with expertise in magic | Likely same as before | Unknown
Weaknesses: Her magic can result in self-harm if used too much (her finger bled after overusing Ice Storm in Madou Monogatari 3). Her Light spell will make her more likely to encounter enemies. | Arle is unable to make use of any non-holy spells in this form. The form itself is a stressful form to maintain and isn't as efficient with her mana as her base form. If Arle pushes her body too much in this form, she will experience a very painful reversion and an extreme feeling of weakness that takes time to recover from. | None notable
