Kestrel Stance (Japanese: 鬼神飛燕の構え Fierce God Swallow Stance) is a three-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Kestrel Stance 1, Kestrel Stance 2, and Kestrel Stance 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Kestrel Stance skill boost their Attack and Speed during combat whenever its user is attacked; the size of this boost is affected by the skill's tier, and the third tier gains an effect that decelerates the foe's special skill cooldown for each strike.
