Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Fire (Japanese: ファイアー Fire) is a basic fire tome, which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and is present in all games in the Fire Emblem series. In games which feature the three separate schools of anima magic, it acts as the first "stage" in the hierarchy of fire magic: it is the fire counterpart to the Thunder and Wind tomes, is the weakest and lowest-ranked of the fire tomes, and is surpassed by the more powerful and advanced Elfire, Arcfire and Bolganone. In games featuring anima magic or tomes in general only as a generalized weapon rank, it is the weakest and lowest-ranked tome available, and in Fire Emblem Gaiden it is the basic black magic spell available by default to all Mages and other classes with access to black magic.
