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 appears in all games in the Fire Emblem series. It is a spell which hurls a ball of flame at its user's foe.

Fire is always the most basic tome of its kind, usable by almost any Mage without any need for more experience. In games which feature the three separate schools of anima magic, it is the first "stage" in the hierarchy of fire magic and the counterpart of the Thunder and Wind 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 level, it is the weakest and lowest-ranked tome available, and in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, it is the basic black magic spell available by default to all Mages and other classes with access to black magic.
