Restores HP equal to this unit's magic power each turn.





First game

Radiant Dawn

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.
