Weapon (Red tome)



Dark Scripture (Japanese: 暗黒の聖書 Holy Book of Darkness) is a weapon skill in the red tome category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes. It is a personal weapon of the corrupted variation of Julia. Dark Scripture is a skill that, in addition to boosting its wielder's Attack at all times, drops the target's Attack and Resistance during combat when not adjacent to any allies as well as making guaranteed follow-up strikes against those without bonus damage effects against breaths.
