The Rescue Command is a command that a unit may execute on another unit of his own team or an ally that has a lower constitution (unless that unit is using the Rescue Staff). In Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, cavalry units cannot be rescued. This command will allow the smaller unit to occupy the same space as but he cannot do anything when he is rescued and he must move in unison with the larger unit. When a unit is rescued, he does not suffer damage but the unit carrying the smaller unit has decreased Speed and Skill stats. This command is useful in levels where if certain units survive, the player gains a special item.
