|“||The Crestless cannot unleash the goddess's power, even if they possess a Relic. Nonetheless, they are still capable of simply wielding those weapons.||”|
The Heroes' Relics are a set of thirteen weapons and accessories originating from Fódlan. They are immensely powerful, and were historically used in the War of Heroes. Each of the relics is empowered by a Crest Stone, and responds to a specific Crest. These weapons will work with any level of Crest, including Major Crests, Minor Crests, and the New Game +-exclusive Crest Items.
In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, a Hero's Relic can be wielded by any character; however, their power and the consequence for using one varies depending on if the character has a Crest, as well as which Crest they have. If the character has no Crest, they will take 10 damage after every round of combat they engage while using a Relic. If the character has any Crest besides the associated one, they will not take any damage from it, but they do not gain any Crest-specific effects.
If the character has the same Crest associated with the Relic, then not only will the character not take any damage from it, but they will also gain access to the Relic's special combat art or abilities. The potency of the character's Crest will also affect the durability cost of using the combat art; Major Crests result in a cost of 3 durability, Minor Crests result in a cost of 4, and Crest items result in a cost of 5. In addition, if the Relic is being wielded by someone with the correct Crest, the Relic will glow red.
The Sword of the Creator is an exception to this pattern, in that it grants its full power exclusively to Byleth. While any other character can equip it, the Sword of the Creator becomes much weaker in their hands, becoming much heavier and losing its ranged capabilities.
