Blossom (Japanese: 大器晩成 Late Bloomer) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. It provides a substantial increase to a unit's chance of gaining stat increases when levelling up, in exchange for decreasing the unit's experience point gain. Unlike the later Aptitude skill, it does not explicitly modify a unit's growth rates directly, but instead offers an effective boost by giving stats a second chance to increase during a level up if they fail to do so the first time.
