Faith (信仰 Shinkō) is a weapon type introduced in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Combat with these weapons involve fighting enemies using various spells and healing your allies.


Faith magic operates on the same level as a combination of Light Magic and White Magic, replacing staves, which are now held items.

Similar to Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, every character in Three Houses has a fixed spell list that they use as they improve their Faith stats; e.g., all Byleths between players will always used the same fixed Faith spell list, as would other characters such as Shamir or Dorothea. Two faith spells, Heal and Nosferatu, always appears as Faith spells in every playable characters' spell list. Rather than having to buy staves and tomes like in most previous titles or having an HP cost, every spell has a set number of usage per map. Characters replenish their spell count between maps.

Mercedes has the Crest of Lamine, which allows her to occasionally conserve spell charges, allowing her to cast Faith Magic without consuming a use if it activates. Lysithea and Lorenz have the Crest of Gloucester, raising the Mt of their Faith attacks when it activates. Flayn and Linhardt have the Crest of Cethleann, raising their Mt when casting recovery Faith spells.
