(Japanese: フォーレスト Forrest) is an advanced infantry class exclusive to Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. One of the two promoted forms of the Myrmidon, it is functionally identical to the Hero of most other games, the Myrmidon in Gaiden, and the Mercenary of Thracia 776. It is a counterpart to the Swordmaster, the other promotion for the Myrmidon, featuring on average lesser Skill and Speed than the Swordmaster and focusing primarily on power, with slightly better defensive bulk.
