The Villager (Japanese: 村人 Villager) is a weak class present in Fire Emblem Gaiden, Awakening, and Fates, and was the first "trainee" class in the Fire Emblem series. Characterised as young and inexperienced village children entering the field of battle for the first time, the class traditionally has low stats in and of itself, but in Gaiden possesses the ability to promote to a wide variety of basic classes which can again promote in turn, allowing for greater potential to increase their stats to higher degrees than a normal unit.
In Awakening, the class has no standard class change options in and of itself, instead relying on reclassing for its sole playable member - Donnel - to leave the class. It acts as a special class with a level cap of 30, though with lower stats on par with a base class compared to other special classes.
