Game(s)

Imbue (Japanese: 治癒 Cure) is a healing skill which debuted in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It restores hit points to its user at the beginning of every turn, with the amount of HP restored being exactly equal to the user's current magic stat. However, Imbue cannot be learned by magical units in order to keep the skill balanced, since the high magic stats of such units would mean that they could recover very high amounts of HP per turn.

Trivia

  • Strangely, Nasir is able to learn Imbue despite having high magic stats. The reason for this oddity may be due to the White Dragon class not counting as a magical unit.
