First game

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Tarvos is a regalia axe which is present only in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is the personal weapon of Nolan of the Dawn Brigade.

History

Tarvos is one of the three national treasures of the Kingdom of Daein, along with Caladbolg and Lughnasadh. It spent years in storage in Daein's vaults, waiting for a worthy bearer.[1] It was entrusted to Nolan by King Pelleas for use in the Daein army's campaign against the Laguz Alliance, and he had his general Micaiah deliver it to Nolan.[2]

Trivia

  • As with Caladbolg and Lughnasadh, Tarvos was created specifically for the international releases of Radiant Dawn, and is not present in any form in the Japanese version. They are the only items in the entire series to be added in localization this way.

  1. "It's been stored away in the vaults of Daein, waiting for someone worthy enough. It's more powerful than the purest silver bow." — Micaiah (talking about Lughnasadh specifically), Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
  2. "Nolan: You're kidding me… it can't be! That's Tarvos, isn't it? That's one wicked-looking axe. I'd heard stories about the fabled axe of Daein, but to actually feel the heft… King Pelleas wants me to have it? I always did like that man. I'll take good care of it, don't you worry.
    Micaiah: I know you will, Nolan. King Pelleas does too. That's why he's chosen to give it to you.
