The Basara (Japanese: 婆娑羅 Basara) is an advanced, Hoshido-aligned infantry class which was introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. It is a class change option for Diviners and Spear Fighters, and wields naginata and scrolls. They possess average stats all-round, but their natural access to the Rend Heaven skill allows them to potentially get in harder hits, depending on the weapon they wield and the enemy they are facing.
