Faith (信仰 Shinkō) is a weapon type introduced in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.


Faith magic operates 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 Lorenz or Marianne. Two faith spells, Heal and Nosferatu, are in every playable character's 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 usages per map. Characters replenish their spell count between maps.

Crests can influence how Faith spells are cast by their users. These include:

  • The Crest of Cethleann, which allows its bearer to occasionally raise Might by 5 when using recovery magic.
  • The Crests of Lamine and Timotheos, which allows its bearer to occasionally conserve uses of recovery magic.
  • The Crests of Macuil and Gloucester, which allows its bearer to occasionally raise Might by 5 during magic attacks.
  • The Crests of Dominic and Noa, which allows its bearer to occasionally conserve uses of magic attacks.
