The Cleric (クレリック, Kurerikku only in FE9) class, known as Sisters (シスター, Shisutaa) in the Japanese games, are a staff-wielding class that has appeared in all of the Fire Emblem games to date. It is very similar to the Priest class, which first appeared in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. All clerics are female, but in games where the Cleric class is absent, some priests are female.

In Fire Emblem Gaiden and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, the Sister class appeared, which could only use staves. In Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, sisters appeared again as a class similar to the Shaman class of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. They could use staves, light, fire, thunder, and wind magic.

From Fire Emblem on, the Sister class has been translated as "Cleric". This was the same with Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, except the Cleric class was actually named "Cleric" in Japanese. In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, the "Staff User" (杖使い, Tsue Tsukai), which could use staves and swords, was also translated to Cleric.

Clerics and all of their other incarnations usually cannot attack enemies, and are defenseless if left exposed to the enemy. They often have high luck and speed, which helps them dodge attacks, and high resistance, which guards against magical attacks. However, their low defense and the fact that they cannot counterattack makes them very vulnerable to enemies. They should be protected by fighting units to prevent their deaths.

Clerics change class to bishops in The Binding Blade, Blazing Sword, Shadow Dragon, and New Mystery of the Emblem. In Gaiden they change class to saints. In Thracia 776,sisters become sages. In The Sacred Stones, they can choose to change class to bishops or valkyries. Finally, in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, clerics become valkyries.

Trivia

  • Of course, there are no cleric bosses, because they usually cannot attack. However, there are enemy clerics, which heal enemies.
