Some characters, both non-legendary and legendary ones have Resilience ability that allows them to survive being fatal wounded or even killed in battle.
Legendary characters starts out with resilience, meaning that they can't be easily killed on level 1. Non-legendary characters do not have resilience on level 1. However, they will gain resilience with enough Attributes gained. After gaining enough Attributes, non-legendary characters will become legendary status with his/her name turned gold.
When wounded in battle, characters have a recovery phase before able to fight in a battle again. Also, the character's resilience takes a hit.
