Other appearances

Fire Emblem Cipher

Seraphim is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B09-025SR Foolhardy Magical Girl, Mae. It is a manual-activation skill which can only be used once per turn. By discarding a spare Mae card from their hand, Mae's player may choose one non-lord enemy and immediately destroy them. If the destroyed enemy was a monster-affinity unit, Seraphim lets the player draw 1 card as an added bonus.
