Also known as DCP, Dominance Capacity Points are a rather important stat in Shadow Hearts: Covenant. These are measures of what level Crests a character can equip, (Yuri and Kurando excluded as they cannot use Crests, despite having a DCP stat but is always set at 0 and can never be increased). The characters that use them can equip up to 8 Crests, but will come with a DCP cost, with more powerful Crests having a higher DCP amount required. The maximum any Crest will cost is 20 DCP.
There are no abilities or equipment that can increase the DCP total of a character. DCP can be increased between 1-2 points only by using the Seal of the Urn item, present in SH: Covenant.
