The Sorcerer (ようじゅつし, Youjutsushi, meaning "sorcerer", or ソーサラー, Soosaraa) class is a magic-using class that first appears in Fire Emblem Gaiden. In this game, it is an enemy-only class. After disappearing for a long time, the class appears again in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, Heroes of Light and Shadow, as a promoted class that can use tomes and staves. It again appears in Fire Emblem: Awakening, having lost the ability to use staves, but is one of only two classes capable of using dark magic without the Shadowgift skill.

In Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem, there is one playable sorcerer, Etzel. Although there are no playable dark mages at first, units can be reclassed to the Dark Mage class and then promote to the Sorcerer class.

In Gaiden, sorcerers can be slightly difficult enemies, having high resistance and average defense. Later, in Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem, they are a powerful playable and enemy class, since it is a promoted class. They are useful because they have higher defense than most magic classes, making them less vulnerable to physical attacks, and because they are generally able to cause a large amount of damage, especially against enemies with low resistance.

The Exorcist class can be considered a stronger version of the Sorcerer class in Gaiden. More recently, in Shadow Dragon, New Mystery of the Emblem, and Awakening, the Dark Mage class promotes to the Sorcerer class.
