“Say, did you happen to get a look at the axe wrapped in Minerva's princessly fingers? No, I suppose not, or else you'd not be standing here. That axe is the Hauteclere, the strongest axe of 'em all. Nobody knows who made it or where, but it's said to rival even the Three Regalia, Akaneia's mightiest weapons. Why if she got her hands on Iote's Shield (that'un being Medon's treasure, see), she'd be nigh unstoppable!”
—A Villager in Chapter 7 of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.
