The Priest or Curate (Japanese: 僧侶 Priest, or 神官 Priest) is a basic magic-wielding class introduced in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light, and one of the staple recurring classes of the Fire Emblem series. In all appearances except Three Houses, Priests possess no offensive abilities, and instead wield magical staves to aid their allies primarily by healing them. Depending on the individual game, the Priest is a gender-neutral class applicable to both males and females in some, and in others is male-exclusive with their female counterpart being the Cleric.

Priests typically possess excellent resistance well above that of any other basic class, in addition to good magic. Owing to their non-offensive status, however, their other stats are somewhat low, particularly their physical strength and defense. Their defensive weaknesses and their non-offensive nature make keeping them hidden away from enemies behind fighting units a necessity to use them, but on the other hand, in Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light, Priests can only gain experience by being attacked by enemies, a quirk rectified in later games.

In the majority of games, Priests class change to the Bishop class, which grants them the ability to wield offensive magic alongside their healing capabilities. In Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776 they instead promote to High Priest, in The Sacred Stones they have the choice between promoting to Bishop and Sage, and in Awakening they can choose between promoting to Sage or War Monk.
