Concept artwork of Leif's Blade from Awakening.
Leif's Blade (リーフの宝剣 Rīfu no hōken, lit. Leaf's Prizesword) is a special Sword that hails from Fire Emblem: Awakening. In spite of what its name suggests, this sword is one that is not specifically bound to the character of Leif in the game, and can instead be wielded by any sword-wielder, provided that they have attained at least a D rank in sword proficiency. Despite this, however, the sword is most likely one that is so contrived that it bears various characteristics that allude to its namesake; For one, the blade's Might value of 4 is one that parallels Leif's starting Strength stat in Thracia 776, that which drops a subtle hint towards the austere nature of his growth in said department. This is, however, offset by the blade possessing a high Hit Rate and a substantial Critical Rate, both of which metonymically depict the tenaciousness and intrepidity that Leif adopts when he is, albeit prematurely at the tender young age of fifteen, compelled to take up arms and assume leadership over the resistance against Veld's corrupting, odious influence over the Thracian peninsula. It must also be noted that the sword's design is fashioned after what is presumably the Light Sword, as it manifests in various artwork depictions of Leif; Functioning as a treasured keepsake that he inherits from his deceased mother, it is thus possible to construe the rationale for the blade being referred to as his "prizesword" in Japanese. It can be obtained by getting 1,500 Renown.
