The Dark Bishop (Japanese: ダークビショップ Dark Bishop) is a class introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. In Genealogy and Thracia 776, it is an enemy-exclusive class, acting as a more powerful counterpart to the Dark Mage, as one of the few classes capable of wielding dark magic; all seen members of this class are higher-ranking members of the Loptr Church. In Three Houses, the class is now playable, and once again acts as a stronger counterpart to the Dark Mage.
