Crests are a fascinating topic, but before one can dive deeply into said topic, one must first understand what Crests are. They are power incarnate. They are said to have been bestowed upon humans by the goddess countless ages ago. They exist within the flesh, and are passed down through bloodlines. Those who carry Crests may excel at magic, display exceptional strength, or any number of boons. Each Crest has its own power, the nature of which is beyond mortal understanding. For now.
— Hanneman, to Byleth.

Crests (Japanese: 紋章 Emblem) are tokens of a goddess's power granted to humans on the continent of Fódlan. They are a hereditary aspect and can be passed on to a bearer's child; making it functionally similar to Holy Blood and Dragon Vein manipulative ability. Crests first appeared in Fire Emblem: Three Houses and are held by several characters appearing in that game.
