Heroes: Descendants of Jugdral’s Crusaders Celebrate in “Scions of Twelve”

In a break from tradition, it seems there won’t be dance-themed banner in Fire Emblem Heroes this month. Instead, this month’s Special Heroes are celebrating the “Day of the Twelve”, a festival found in Jugdral.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

“Scions of Twelve” will run from 7th September 2021 (UTC). The featured Heroes are Larcei, Julia, Lewyn and Harmonized Leif and Seliph. Nanna, who appeared in the silhouette prior, will be the Tempest Trials reward (Staff Flier).

Please continue for a breakdown of the Special Heroes from the trailer!

Leif (and Seliph): Destined Scions

Type: Colorless Bow Cavalry
Voice: Nicolas Roye + Christian La Monte
Artist: Hino Shinnosuke

Weapon: Bow of Twelve – Enables [Canto (1)]
Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count -1). Effective against flying foes. If unit initiates combat or if unit’s HP >= 75% at start of combat and foe uses magic or staff, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +5 to unit during combat, and also, if unit’s HP > 1 and foe would reduce unit’s HP to 0, unit survives with 1 HP. (Once per turn. Does no stack.)
[Canto 1] – After an attack, Assist skill, or structure destruction, unit can move 1 space(s).
(Unit moves according to movement type. Once per turn. Cannot attack or assist. Only highest value applied. Does not stack. After moving, if a skill that grants another action would be triggered (like with Galeforce), Canto will trigger after the granted action. Unit’s base movement has no effect on movement granted. Cannot warp (using skills like Wings of Mercy) a distance greater than 1 space(s).)
Special: Njörun’s Zeal
A: Atk/Spd Catch 4
B: S Drink
C: Pulse Smoke 3

Harmonized Skill: Grants the following effects to unit and allies from the same titles [Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776] as unit for 1 turn: [Resonance: Blades], [Desperation], and “if unit initiates combat, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack.”
[Resonance: Blades] – Grants Atk/Spd +4 during combat for 1 turn.
[Desperation] – Grants the following effect for 1 turn: “If unit initiates combat, unit can make a follow-up attack before foe can counterattack.”
(Harmonized Skills can be used by tapping the Harmonized button. This skill can only be used only once per map. Harmonized Skills cannot be used by units deployed using Pair Up.)
