Beige Orb- This orb enhances Duvalier's reflexes where he is quickly able to counter-attack with Mind Blast.

Red Orb- Gives Duvalier Vendetta, so he can return his pain and then some to his enemies.

Tan Orb- To improve his skills with a knife, tan orbs boost Duvalier's strength.

Here's the thing, Duvalier doesn't use strength, in fact, for Duvalier, strength isn't even a stat.

The twitter says that Duvalier will learn Knife during a side quest.  This means that Duvalier will have very low strength when he gains knife, so the Tan Orb will make up for it.

Black orb is already shadow resistance.

I thought the shadow-resistance was given by the shadow orb. No matter. It can be called the grey orb then.

Orbs are named after colors.

I actually like every idea on this thread so far. The Beige orb will let Duvalier have a counter-attack, which is nice because so far Griffin is the only character to get a counter. The Red Orb was already discussed with the inclusion of Vendetta in "Formulated Teammate Attack Ideas", and the Tan Orb will be very useful- however, it should not be obtainable untill after Duvalier learns Knife. Also, the Beige orb is a good idea. The only issue is that Beige and Tan might be tricky to distinguish, but thats just IMO.

I would also like to see the Crystal Orb (Physical res.) included

What about orbs that give another area attack for your affinity? Or is that a bad idea? The red orb? Since Duvalier can already learn pyro hail if you want. Different area attack? Or maybe a bigger mind blast to go with it?

An orb that lets you learn Fire Gate? Maybe; it might be a bit OP, though.

here's my idea for the orb that modifies your element.

silver orb: makes the elemental blast attack range 3 and piercing.
golden orb: adds 5 damage and increases the size of your elemental area attack
for pyro hail it would be a 5 by 5 plus sign, cyro cross would get +1 range and dark vortex and light blast would be a 5x5 blast.
While I'm here i'll just post possible methods of getting the orbs.
for the silver orb: 1v1 against a silver colored shadow beast that has your stats +5 (doesn't include orbs)
for the golden orb: team vs team of golden colored shadow beasts who all have your teams' stats +5
