The Heroes Relics are a series of weapons important to Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Said to be weapons gifted to humanity by the Goddess, the Heroes Relics were used by the Ten Elites in the War of Heroes.
The Heroes Relics hold immense power, but can be used by anyone who is able to acquire them. However, each Hero's Relic resonates with Crests, having a particular affinity for a specific Crest. Thus an individual who has a Crest with a strong affinity for that relic is able to draw out its full power and gains bonus effects. However, an individual lacking the resonating crest risk being consumed by malevolent energy inside the relic, transforming them into a Demonic Beast.

The tale behind the Heroes' Relics is a partial distortion of their true origins. In reality, they were crafted from the corpses of the Nabateans—the "Children of the Goddess"—who were slaughtered at Zanado by Nemesis and the Ten Elites. Their bones were used to create the weapons, while their hearts became the Crest Stones that imbued the weapons with mystical powers. The Ten Elites consumed their blood to gain their Crests and the immense power that came with them.
Seiros, the only survivor of the slaughter at Zanado, gathered the remaining Nabateans scattered across Fódlan to take revenge. She also swayed one of Nemesis' allies, Wilhelm I, to join her side and shared her blood with him to grant him the Crest of Seiros.
