Skill(s)

None

The Bonewalker (Japanese: スケルトン Skeleton) class is one of the monster classes that appear in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, as well as in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. In all appearances, they are an enemy-exclusive class. Their help description states they are created from warriors that fell in battle.

In Gaiden, bonewalkers only use monster weapons; in The Sacred Stones, there are two variations of the Bonewalker, one of which can use either swords and lances, the other uses only bows, and both can sometimes drop valuable weapons. Shadows of Valentia combines these approaches, allowing them to wield normal swords as well as a monster weapon called the Bone Sword.

Presumably, in Gaiden, they change class to liches, and in The Sacred Stones, they change class to wights. Their class change details are unknown, because they are an enemy-only class.
