Note: These are first impressions and based on conjecture since we don’t know the exact details.
Sideroca joins Mousse (4★) and Astesia (5★) in the Archetype of Arts Guard. She follows the trend of this Archetype by having defensive/sustain elements in her Skills and an offensive oriented Talent.
With the healing element of her Skills, it appears as though she is intended to be effective at functioning without external healing support, or at least to supplement healing in high-damage situations. How well she can execute these roles will likely depend on the strength of her Skills.
The reduction of the attack range of Skill 2 means she will only be able to hit enemies that she is blocking. This will limit somewhat it's offensive capabilities, but since it has defensive elements, it is already more useful when she is blocking. Her Skill 1 could possibly be the same or similar to the Skill 1 of Matoimaru.
Her Talent is somewhat reminiscent of that of Flamebringer, and means she will be at her best when she can be placed and left on the field to accumulate kills. It also has the addition of status effect reduction, which is an effect we've been seeing more often of late.
