The Priest (プリースト Purīsuto) is a support magical class that recurrently appears across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning from Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. Mainly intended for support purposes, Priests are only capable of aiding allies with the power of staves. As such, Priests are unable to directly attack, save for Radiant Dawn, where they are bequeathed the ability to counterattack, and Three Houses, where they are able to cast Reason magic as well as Faith magic.

History in the SeriesEdit

In its original inception in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, the Curate (そうりょ Sōryo, lit. Monk) is a unisex class and can eventually promote into Bishop.

In Gaiden the Priest class does not appear and the traditional staff using healer role is instead given to the Sister class.

In Mystery of the Emblem, the Priest remains absent in favor of the female-only Sister class.

The Priest (プリースト Purīsuto) class returns in Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, where the class is again unisex and promotes into the High Priest class.

In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, the Priest class is unable to promote.

Beginning from The Binding Blade, the Priest class is reinstated into the series with the Bishop class acting as its staple promoted form. As Bishops, Priests are granted the ability to arm Light magic for combat purposes.

In The Sacred Stones, the Priest (神官 Shinkan) class is separated from the Cleric class. It is also further given the option to promote into the Sage class alongside the Bishop class. As Sages, Priests can also access Anima magic alongside Light Magic.

In Radiant Dawn, the Priest (神官プリースト Purīsuto) class is again made unisex, with Laura acting as the only playable character of this class. The Priest class promotes into the Bishop class in this title, much like its predecessors.

In Shadow Dragon, the Priest class is known as the Curate (僧侶 Sōryo lit. Monk) and Wrys is re-introduced to the series.

In Awakening, while Priests cannot promote into Bishops, they are instead given the option to promote either into War Monks or Sages.

In Fates, the Priest class is called Monk (修験者 Shugenja lit. Ascetic) and is regarded as a Hoshidan class. Considered the male counterpart of the Shrine Maiden class, Monks are given the option to promote either into Great Masters or Onmyoji.

In Three Houses, Priest is once more unisex and are an Intermediate class that requires a unit with a Faith level of C or higher to pass the Certification Exam. The class has proficiency in Faith and Reason magic. Priests automatically have the ability to cast the Heal spell regardless of Faith level. If the unit has already learned the spell from their Faith skill, they can cast it twice the usual amount of times.

OverviewEdit

CombatEdit

Priests serve the sole purpose of aiding their allies through their healing staves, replenishing their HP when they sustain damage during combat. Locked to using their healing staves as their primary source of experience gains (aside from the paltry amounts they get from being engaged in combat by hostile units), the player thus has no other option but to ensure that their ability is utilised as much as is possible until they reach a level appropriate for promotion. As they also happen to be physically frail due to their low Defense, Priests must always be deployed alongside bodyguards to shield them from onslaughts while they work in the sidelines to support their allies.
