When you first get into battle, you may notice your character attacking and using skills on their own. This is because auto-battle is turned on by default. To turn off auto-combat, simply press the twin-locked swords at the bottom of the screen to the right of your familiar bar. This will end auto-combat, and you can control your character's actions.
