|Icon of the Pursuer from Fates.|
Def-5, Res-3. Good for follow-up attacks, but also weak to them (+5/-5 eff. Spd).
Pursuer (Japanese: 残心 Zanshin) is a regalia yumi that debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. It is the strongest of all Hoshidan weaponry (and among all Fates weaponry is tied for strongest with the Aurgelmir, an axe of Nohr), has respectable accuracy, and also packs a critical rate. While the Pursuer does make it easier for the wielder to double-attack on their turn, it also makes it easier for the enemy to do so when they attack the user. However, it reduces its user's defenses and ability to avoid attacks, and using it takes a toll on the wielder, leaving the user unable to do as much damage with subsequent consecutive strikes.

||Definition, etymology and notes
||Derived from the concept of zanshin (literally, "remaining mind") from various Japanese martial arts, which describes the relaxed yet alert state of mind and posture which a practitioner should enter after executing a move, reflecting a consistent state of awareness before, during, and after making a move. In kyūdō, the martial art of archery, it refers specifically to the posture assumed after loosing an arrow and the accompanying mindset.
