Nullifies all damage inflicted by weapons not blessed by Yune, restoring HP equal to the unit's Luck each turn.






Mantle (Japanese: 女神の加護 The Goddess's Divine Protection) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. In this game, it will negate all damage (although in the description it states that it only reduces damage). In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, it negates damage only from non-blessed weapons and restores HP each turn, equal to the user's luck stat, while also providing the user with immunity to other skill effects and critical hits. The skill is primarily associated with Sephiran, who is the only playable unit in either game with access to it. It is also possessed by the last three bosses of Radiant Dawn, so to fight these bosses the player must use weapons which have been blessed by Yune.
