Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Sacrifice (Japanese: 癒しの手 Healing Hand) is a healing skill exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is exclusive to Micaiah of the Dawn Brigade. It gives her the unique ability to sacrifice her own HP to restore another's health by touch.

History

Being able to heal without use of staves is a rare ability, which Micaiah obtained as a manifestation of her powers as a Branded. Sacrifice came to be associated with Micaiah by the people of Daein and the Begnion occupation force as part of her reputation as the "Silver Haired Maiden". Through the power of Sacrifice, Micaiah can draw wounds sustained by others into her own body, healing them while taking on the burden of their injury herself.[1] Though Sothe warned Micaiah against using it in public for this reason of being an easy way to identify her, she nonetheless uses it to heal Nico of injuries inflicted by Begnion archers before a crowd of soldiers and civilians while trying to flee said soldiers.
