Forrest Knight (フォレストナイト, also known as the Ranger in the western releases) is a mounted class that appears in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga and Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones.
In TearRing Saga, this class is known as Bow Rider (ボウライダー, translated Ranger in the fan translation) and is an enemy-exclusive class which can equip bow only.
Like all mounted units, Forrest Knights generally have great mobility, though may be slower than other mounts. Forrest Knights are noted for being the only mounted unit being able to navigate across water, which is something only a Berserker, Pirate, Thief, or flying unit would be able to do.
