Whether a character dodges a hit is determined by their chance to dodge, which is capped at 75%. Dodge is rolled randomly each time the character would be hit. On a successful dodge, the character does not take the hit. For this reason, dodge is handled before block and avoidance, both of which provide a chance to mitigate the damage of hits rather than preventing them outright. Dodge is not affected by the enemy's accuracy.
