Aureola (Japanese: アーリアル Aureole), also known as the Glorious Ascension (Japanese: 至高の光 Supreme Light), is a regalia light tome introduced in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. It is one of the legendary weapons of Elibe, forged to combat dragons in The Scouring, and was wielded by Saint Elimine of the Eight Legends.
As with the other eight legendary weapons, Aureola was forged by humans during the Scouring and was entrusted to Elimine, and during battle its power was part of the cause of the Ending Winter. After the war, Elimine enshrined it at the peak of the Saint's Tower in Etruria, on the outskirts of the capital Aquileia, and a seal was placed upon it by Bramimond to prevent human access to it.
When Bramimond released the seal on the legendary weapons to permit Eliwood and Hector to use them to defeat Nergal, Athos collected Aureola from its resting place and brought it it with him to the Dragon's Gate, claiming it contained the ability to pierce Nergal's formidable magical defenses. After Nergal's defeat, Aureola was returned to the Tower.
Twenty years later, after freeing Etruria, Eliwood's son Roy travelled to the Saint's Tower to drive out the turncoat Elimine Church faction occupying it. On capturing the tower, Roy was allowed by King Mordred to take and use Aureola and anything else of use from the tower, for use as the leader of the Etrurian campaign against Bern and its War Dragons.
