Not to be confused with the spell known as Nosferatu in the Japanese versions of the GBA games.

NosferatuNosferatu (リザイア Rizaia, called Resire in the Japanese versions, and Rizziah in fan translation) is both a Light and Dark Magic spell in the Fire Emblem Saga. Originally introduced as White Magic in Fire Emblem Gaiden, it appears as a Dark spell in Fūin no Tsurugi, Rekka no Ken, and The Sacred Stones, and as a Light spell in Monshō no Nazo, Seisen no Keifu, Thracia 776, Path of Radiance, and Radiant Dawn.

It is suitably named “Nosferatu” for its vampiric effect, absorbing HP from the enemy. It is unique in that it is the only weapon in Gaiden other than the Falchion that can damage Doma after his HP drops down to 52. In Monsho no Nazo and it's remake, only females could use it.

The tome is not available in any stores on the World Map, so hence, only a few exist in a normal gameplay. Knoll is carrying one, and some enemies drop them. There is one available in a certain chest in the Tower of Valni, though it may give other Dark tomes. The Shop at Narube River also sells it, but only during the battle, as the stock changes when accessed from the World Map.

Etymology

"Resire" is likely referring to "resile", a word which means to "draw back" and "recoil". Its English name, "Nosferatu", has been presented as a Romanian word, synonymous with "vampire".

Trivia

  • The spell can be used upon a wall or other non-living obstacle and it will still leech HP to the wielder. This can prove useful since objects such as walls have no resistance, returning maximum potential HP.
