   Colleen's active techniques are denoted by a golden star - those are techniques she needs to initiate in order to achieve their effects.
   Body-, mind- and spirit-enhancing training that Colleen always benefits from once she completes the relevant training are denoted by a blue star. Multiple stars suggest multiple stages of training, and thus greater benefits.


Duration - A lot of techniques include some means of directly damaging one or more opponents, and those are resolved immediately - whether they succeed or fail. Others, though, demand the maintenance of focus, and their traits may linger in a fighter's stance, or trigger reflexively when an opponent presents an opening.
Cooldown - Techniques put a strain on the body and the mind, and weariness demands time for relief. A measurement of how long it takes, depending on the technique, from the moment it is used in order to be retried.
