Trivia

  • Compared to Areadbhar and Aymr, the main relic weapons of Dimitri and Edelgard, respectively, Failnaught has the notable distinction of being the only one of the lords' main relic weapon that can be obtained and used outside of the main wielder's route. In this case, Failnaught, Claude's main relic weapon, can be used outside of Verdant Wind (Claude's route) in Azure Moon (Dimitri's route).
