The health attribute is displayed at the bottom-left part of the screen as a red bar. The amount of health your character will have is dependent on the number of Shells you are using.
If you are using a shell and your health bar depletes completely, the Foundling will be expelled from the shell. While as in the Foundling form, you will have 1 health only.
When the foundling is expelled from the shell, you can either fight as the Foundling or come back to the shell.
If you fight and your shell drops again to 0, you will die and return to the latest checkpoint to start over again.
In Mortal Shell, you can recover your health by using different Consumable items or some healing abilities.

In Mortal Shell, the resolve attribute is displayed at the bottom-left part of the screen as a small bar, directly over the health bar.
The amount of Resolve also depends on the Shell you are currently using. Resolve is used to perform Weapon Abilities or to tarnish Sealed Abilities.
One use of an ability drains 2 bars of resolve, which can be gained back by dealing damage to your enemies.
In Mortal Shell, the following Defensive stats are present.
In Mortal Shell, Hardening is a key mechanic that allows you to harden and not take damage from any incoming attack.
If an enemy hits you while you are hardened, he will be staggered for a small time period in which you can attack them freely.
This ability can be used at any time and when you use it, you will remain static until it ends.
When it ends, you can attack your opponent if you staggered them. Hardening ability has a small cool down after every use.
The Hardening Ability can be used by all Shells and even with the Foundling form.
Tarnished Seal allows you to Parry enemy attacks. To parry an incoming strike, you have to time your parry just before the attack hits you.
If your Parry is successful, it will stagger your enemy for a short interval. Keep in mind that not all attacks can be parried.
To perform tarnished seal abilities, you will need resolve. If you have enough resolve you can perform the tarnished seal abilities.
