Ranger (フォレストナイト Foresuto naito, Forrest Knight in the Japanese version) is a horse-mounted combat physical class that recurrently appears across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War.

This class shares its English name with Ike's class from Path of Radiance, but they are unrelated. This is a Second Tier mounted class that can use Bows and Swords, whereas the Ranger class from Path of Radiance is a First Tier unmounted Lord class that only uses Swords.

History in the SeriesEdit

In its original inception in Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, the Forrest Knight is the promoted form of the Free Knight class, wielding Swords as its sole weapon of choice. The class's Skill and Speed are superior to those boasted by the Paladin class.

The class is then absent in the series until the onset of The Sacred Stones, where it is referred to as the Ranger in localized versions of the game. One of the promoted forms of both the Archer and Mercenary classes, Rangers are able to equip both Swords and Bows, but lose the ability to mount Ballistae.

The Forrest Knight/Ranger class is retired from the series subsequently, its role taken up by the Bow Knight classes in later installments.

OverviewEdit

CombatEdit

Like all mounted units, Rangers generally have great mobility, although they may be considered slower as compared to other mounted units. Rangers are noted for being the only horseback-mounted unit that is able to navigate across water, a feat that is normally something only Berserkers, Pirates, Thieves or flying units are able to perform.
