Follow-Up (Genealogy of the Holy War)

The Bow Fighter (Japanese: ボウファイター Bow Fighter) class is a basic bow-using class that appears in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. It is very similar to the Archer class from other games, but is considered a separate class. However, they do not appear in any other games.

All bow fighters have the Follow-Up skill, which allows them an extra attack under certain conditions.

In both games, bow fighters promote to the Sniper class.
