Summon Board Passive selections:Numbers listed below refer to the 7 passives to select for each Ultimate Summon Board for the character. Top is 1, bottom is 7.
Alexander choose 3 / 5 / 6
Odin choose 3 / 6 / 7
Bahamut choose 4 / 5 / 6
As Ceodore performs best at max HP, he never operates for more than a turn at low HP, so we recommend a few changes, but these aren't required
Shiva choose 1 / 2 / 4
Leviathan and Pandemonium choose 1 / 2 / 6
Ifrit, Ramuh, Brothers 4 / 5 / 7
Diabolos 4 / 5 / 6

Sphere RecommendationsNOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
A Sphere - BRV DMG is king, and Ceodore is a good match for spheres that trigger based on dealing weakness damage. ATK is a fine secondary option. Even though he drains his HP, do not give him Rinoa or D Cecil sphere since he’ll heal himself back up.
C Sphere - His own sphere is premium for him to help keep the party healthy, but consider that Garnet is probably the best stat wise for himself. Maria/Llyud provide ATK to the party, and they all work because he will heal himself every 4-5 turns. Avoid 3T healing triggers.
D Sphere - Focus on ATK spheres, 3T buff spheres should be fine but you may very occasionally lose the benefit of it as S2, HP++, and EX do not buff him.
Team Synergy Notes
Check our healer section on our roles page for some great choices for Ceodore, but easily said, some of the best choices are:
His father, Paladin Cecil - has overhealing, HP Regen, and good burst healing
Warrior of Light - protect the party from most HP damage
Arciela - HP Attack Disable can freeze enemies in their tracks, plenty of healing throughout her kit
Guy - relieve pressure from him, party healing, increased weakness damage
Beatrix or Kimahri - avoid HP damage, plenty of healing options
There are lots more options across our Tanks, HP DMG mitigation, and healers sections to choose from, don't be limited by just these call outs!
Removable Passives (to remove if you run out of CP space)
If you need space, you can remove your Resist choices from Shiva Leviathan Pandemonium, they're minor effects
Generally, it is not recommended to remove speed passives from your damage dealers, or really anyone in general, unless trying for a specific strategy, but these two passives have no associated stat boosts, so they can be removed if absolutely needed and do not change his EX recharge from our tests.
