First game

The Sword of the Creator (Japanese: 天帝の剣 Sword of the creator) is a regalia weapon which first appeared in Fire Emblem Heroes and made its proper debut in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It was once wielded by Nemesis in his conflict with Seiros, and is currently the personal weapon of Byleth, granting them the ability to use the Ruptured Heaven combat art and to attack at 2 range by extending its blade like a whip. Unlike traditional personal weapons, the Sword of the Creator can be used by any unit; however, if anyone other than Byleth equips it, it loses all of its unique power.

History

The Sword of the Creator is one of the Heroes' Relics of Fódlan. It was originally forged from the goddess Sothis's heart and bones by the so-called Liberation King Nemesis and wielded in his conflict with Seiros, but he was slain and the blade taken from him. The Sword of the Creator was eventually placed in the coffin generally presumed by the public to contain Seiros' remains. Approximately 1000 years later, a squad of soldiers led by the Death Knight raided the tomb in an attempt to collect the blade, but were repelled by Byleth and their students. The soldiers managed to unlock the seal containing the Sword of the Creator, and Byleth proved to be able to wield its full power. In response, Archbishop Rhea entrusted the sword to Byleth. Several months later, Byleth was caught in a spell created by the dark bishop Solon and trapped in a realm of darkness. In order to save them, Sothis sacrificed herself to grant Byleth her power, awakening the true potential of the Sword of the Creator. Byleth would continue to wield the blade throughout the conflict that would erupt in Fódlan over the next five years. If they chose to lead the Golden Deer, Nemesis was resurrected by "those who slither in the dark" to continue their campaign against Seiros and humanity. He was armed with an Agarthan copy of the Sword of the Creator known as the Dark Creator Sword, but slain for good by Byleth and Claude.

Trivia

  • The Sword of the Creator is the only Hero's Relic to not have a Crest Stone embedded into it during the events of Three Houses; by extension, this also means it is the only Hero's Relic that cannot be used at full power by everyone who has the correct crest, responding only to Byleth due to their possession of the Crest Stone tied to it. By contrast, its copy (the Dark Creator Sword) is the only known Relic to have two Crest Stones embedded into it.
    • The Crest Stones embedded into the Dark Creator Sword are engraved with the Crests of Noa and Timotheos, both of which are Crests that were lost to history by the time of Three Houses.
