The High Priest (ハイプリースト Hai purīsuto) is a combat and support magical class that is exclusive to the Jugdral Series of Fire Emblem. The promoted form of Priests appearing in the Jugdral Series, High Priests are primarily armed with staves for support purposes, alongside either Anima magic or Light magic for combat.

History in the SeriesEdit

In its original inception in Genealogy of the Holy War, the High Priest class replaces the Bishop class as the promoted form of the Priest class, armed with Anima magic and Staves as its equipment of choice.

In Thracia 776, the High Priest class is again the promoted form of the Priest class, but wields Light magic instead of Anima Magic for combat purposes.

Following the end of the Jugdral era, the High Priest class is retired from the series, its role as the promoted form of the Priest class assumed by the Bishop class again with Bishops gaining the ability to use Light Magic.
