Reese's Tome (Japanese: カタリナの書 Katarina's Book) is a tome introduced in Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. It is a modified version of the Elfire tome with superior might, hit, and crit. In Fire Emblem Heroes, it functions as a stronger version of the Rauðrowl+ tome. It is characterized as a tome which belonged to Reese, a major character in New Mystery of the Emblem who eventually took up the much more well known name of Katarina.
