Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Gungnir (Japanese: グングニル Gungnir), sometimes known by the epithet "Lance of the Heavens" (Japanese: 天槍 sky lance),[1] is the lance once wielded by Dain of the Twelve Crusaders, bestowed upon him at the Miracle of Darna after his blood-bond with a dragon. The lance is the property of Dain's descendants, the royal family of the Kingdom of Thracia, and is restricted in use to those in possession of major Dain Holy Blood.

Along with the Helswath, Mjölnir and Valflame, Gungnir is one of the Crusader weapons completely inaccessible and unusable to the player in Genealogy of the Holy War; no bearer of Dain holy blood of any level is playable. It was not until Awakening that it became a playable weapon.

History

Gungnir was eventually inherited by King Travant of Thracia, who wielded it in his murder of Quan and Ethlyn as they pass through the Yied Desert, and throughout the rest of his life. During the clash between Thracia and Seliph's liberation army in Grann 777, Travant entrusted it to his son Areone before departing to challenge Seliph's army. After Travant's death, Areone wielded it first to continue his father's work in opposition of Seliph's forces before being convinced by Altena to, during Seliph's march on Grannvale, support Seliph's cause.

Millennia later, Gungnir came into the possession of the Grimleal, and was wielded by its reincarnation of the Deadlord Equus. By this time, it is no longer sealed to the Dain bloodline and is capable of being used by any lance-wielder with a high enough weapon level.

Trivia

  • In Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, Gungnir still exists as an unused item. Its description reads データかいぞうはだめですよ Hacking is bad, scolding a viewer for modifying the game to view this description in the first place.
