  Medal Sets and Jefferson's Appointments

Give the Medal Sets to Jefferson once you recruit him.

Medal Sets:

#1-Zexen soldier in orange at the VdZ Blacksmith shop gives it to you in ch. 3
   or 4 (I usually get it with Hugo in his ch. 3, ch. 4 with anyone else).

#2-Boy by the cow at the back of Chisha village gives it to you from ch. 3 on.

#3-Mt. Hei-Tou treasure boss item in Geddoe ch. 1.  Possible it pops up
   elsewhere in another treasure boss fight.

#4-Rarity at Chisha Item Shop starting in ch. 3.

#5-North Cavern treasure boss item in Chris ch. 2 (Chimera).  Possible it pops
   up elsewhere in another treasure boss fight.

------------------------------------
Jefferson's Appointments:

Emperor-Accuracy and Damage Skills +1
Top Commander-Swing and Counter Attack Skills +1
Shadow Boss-Adrenaline Power Skill +2
Captain-Counter Attack Skill +1
General-Heavy Damage Skill +1
GrKing-Stun Skill +1 (Freeze)

PM-Healing Skill +1
Minister-Appraisal Skill +1
Marquis-Treasure Hunt Skill +1

Note that you cannot give any of these Appointments to Support characters.  If
you give one of the Support Appointments to a regular character, it's basically
giving them the skill with a grade of E even though the skill won't show up in
their skills list.  The only regular character I know of that actually comes
with one of the Support skills you can boost is Sanae Y, who has Healing.  A
character cannot hold more than 1 Appointment title at a time.
