Equipping 'counter' as an accessory or in a skill slot enables a character to occasionally avoid an enemy's attack, and quickly follow it up with an attack of their own. It is a stronger skill than Weapon Guard, which performs half of the same function (avoid).
Another skill which may be equipped (accesorized and/or learned) is Counter Up which increases the frequency of counter-attacks.
