Victorious Axe
The Victorious Axe has a Slaying-type effect that speeds up the special trigger by 1. If the number of foes within 2 spaces of Edelgard is equal to or higher in number. Then she gains a guaranteed follow-up attack.

When this skill is activated, it negates the enemy’s defense allowing Edelgard to deal a high amount of damage.

Attack/Defense Solo
It’s a passive skill in FEW: Three Hopesthat increases attack and defense if there are no allies close to her.

Dull Close
At the start of the combat, if Edelgard’s HP is full and the enemy uses a sword, lance, axe, dragon stone, or beast damage, it cancels out the foe’s bonuses during combat.
