The Cleric (Japanese: シスター Sister) class is a staff-wielding class which first appeared in Fire Emblem Gaiden, appearing in every game since then except Genealogy of the Holy War and The Binding Blade; it is missing from core Fates gameplay (its role taken by the Shrine Maiden), but appears as the class of the NPC Lissa in the DLC chapter Before Awakening. It is very similar to the Priest class, which first appeared in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light; the Cleric is considered the Priest's female counterpart in games where both classes appear except in Gaiden, where the two are distinct female-only classes, and Fates, where the Cleric appears only as DLC and a functionally identical class called Shrine Maiden appears instead. All clerics are female, but in games where the Cleric class is absent, some priests are female.

In most games, the cleric can only use staves. In Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, however, clerics appeared as a class similar to the Shaman class of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, and can use staves, light, fire, thunder, and wind magic.

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 Mystery of the Emblem, Fire Emblem, Shadow Dragon, and New Mystery of the Emblem. In Gaiden they change class to saints. In Thracia 776, clerics become sages. In The Sacred Stones, they can choose to change class to bishops or valkyries. In Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, clerics become valkyries. In Awakening, they can choose to change class to sages or war clerics.

Trivia

  • As Clerics typically cannot attack, none have appeared as a boss in any chapter in the Fire Emblem series. However, there are generic enemy clerics, indeed capable of healing enemies.
