“A dance that increases allies' defenses for a turn.”
Ninis' Grace (ニニスの守護 Ninisu no shugo, lit. Ninis' Protection) is a Ring that is exclusive to Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. Blessed by Ninis, the spirit of Ice, Ninis' Grace is a keepsake that Ninian received from her mother. Whenever Ninian speaks about the item, she assumes a demeanour of wariness, ever vigilant about overusing it and wearing it out.
Ninis' Grace is first mentioned at the end of Chapter 7, provided that it is completed in 15 turns or less. After Ninian expresses her gratitude towards Lyn for permitting both her and her brother to travel with her army, she comes to the realisation that she had misplaced Ninis' Grace in the preceding battle. The conclusion that the ring had been stolen by the Black Fang is made, and Lyn makes the decision to retrieve it on Ninian's behalf.
Pursuing the stragglers of the preceding battle, Lyn's army is led to an old castle located in Kathelet in Chapter 7x. Prior to the start of the ensuing battle, the leader of the stragglers, Beyard, is revealed to have hold of Ninis' Grace. Upon defeating Beyard, the ring is wrested from his grasp and returned to Ninian. At this point, the ring does not yet manifest as a usable item, given the fact that Nils directly aids Lyn's army in his sister's stead.
Ninis' Grace later plays a fairly prominent role in Chapter 20E/21H, where it is instrumental in aiding Ninian's intent of convincing Eliwood into allowing her to assist him in battle through her sacred dances. With Ninis' Grace on hand, Ninian proceeds to perform a dance that enwraps Eliwood in a mystical shield of protection prior to the initiation of the ensuing battle.
