Seasoned Armored Lances, now promoted to General.


Lances, Axes



The Lance General (槍武将 Lance General) is a class that appears only in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is a promoted Armor Lance in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, with higher stats and the ability to use axes in addition lances. Lance generals can change to the Marshall class under certain conditions.

They have quite high stats, and have unusually resistance for a physical unit. Other units have higher speed, but lance generals excel in defense, and have useful values in other stats. However, like other armored units, they are weak to certain weapons, such as Hammers or Armorslayers.
