Shirley Strategy

Shirley Phase:1 Henchmen

Shirley will bring her goons and Orpheus into the fight. The soldiers will have roughly around 2000 HP so prioritize taking them down first to reduce the enemy team's damage.

It is important to have Clothespin for your White Mage as Orpheus will still counter white magic with Lillting Lullaby. Lastly, let your Black Mage apply poison to both Shirley and Orpheus to get some passive damage going.

Shirley Phase 2: Critical HP

Shirley Cutscene
Once Shirley's mid-fight cutscene plays, she'll start using High Roller which can oneshot frail characters. Make your Vanguard uses Aggravate to lessen the chance of your mages getting KO'd.

If your characters have a high level Freelancer, just make your attackers and tank use Body Slam to get at least 1000 damage per use. The move costs 1 BP so make sure to Default first!

The easiest way to Beat Shirley is to capture Electrica Elements from the Abandoned Mansion where you fought Amphora. Made her battle go by very fast.
