The Marksman (神射手 Sajitarī, lit. Sagittary) is a combat physical class exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. The promoted form of the Sniper class, Marksmen wield Bows as their sole weapon of choice.
Marksmen are defined by two distinct trademark abilities - The Deadeye skill and the ability to perform long-range attacks. Boasting high Skill that is practically unrivalled, Marksmen are one of the, if not the most, accurate classes in the whole game. While they are also capable of attacking three spaces away without the use of a Longbow, the drawback to this is the fact their attacks are rendered less accurate as a result.
