Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Mystletainn (pronounced /ˈmɪsəlˌteɪn/[key][1]; Japanese: ミストルティン Mystletainn) is a regalia sword introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Also known by the epithet "Demon Sword" (Japanese: 魔剣 demon sword or magic sword), it is the weapon once wielded by Hezul of Jugdral's Twelve Crusaders, bestowed upon him at the Miracle of Darna after his blood-bond with a dragon. The blade is the property of Hezul's descendants, those in possession of major Hezul Holy Blood, and is sealed to their exclusive use.

History

Originally, Mystletainn was the the property of Hezul's family, the Agusti royal family of Agustria, but when his major-blooded daughter married into the Nordion noble family, the major Hezul lineage was accidentally passed to House Nordion while the Agusti family was left with only minor blood, which by the time of King Chagall has apparently dissipated. The royal family then gave Mystletainn to House Nordion, in exchange for an oath of unwavering fealty to the crown.[2]

The blade was eventually inherited by Eldigan the Lionheart, the lord of Nordion as of Grann 757 and a friend of Sigurd of Chalphy. He wielded it in combat first to defend Sigurd's base at Evans Castle from Elliot during Sigurd's sortie into Verdane, and later against Sigurd's forces at the behest of King Chagall, up until his execution by his king. The blade was then passed to his son, Ares, who wielded it as a mercenary serving Javarro in Darna and later in fighting in Seliph's liberation army.

Eons later, possession of Mystletainn was sought by Prince Owain of Ylisse, who considered it the "fated mate to his sword hand"; in his eagerness, he mistook a common sword belonging to a resident of the Sage's Hamlet for Mystletainn.[3]
