Enables unit to activate Dragon Veins.
The First Blood (Japanese: 神祖竜の血 Divine Ancestral Dragon's Blood) is an item that debuted in Fire Emblem Fates through the downloadable content episode Hidden Truths 2. When consumed, this item gives any unit the ability to use Dragon Veins.
The ability to access Dragon Veins stems from possessing the bloodline of the ancient First Dragons, who once empowered humans with drops of their own blood. The First Blood item is a sample of the blood of Anankos, which gives this power to those who drink the blood. In Hidden Truths 2, Anankos provided his blood to Odin, Selena, and Laslow to allow them to temporarily use Dragon Veins to fight off an ambush from Vallite forces while they were in Valla.
