The Light Priestess (Japanese:
In their different incarnations, Light Priestesses are a female-exclusive class wielding light magic and staves. While very frail, they possess high magic and resistance, giving them good healing proficiency as well as the ability to defend themselves. In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Micaiah compensates partially her fragility by being immune to being attacked by numerous endgame enemies and bosses.

|• Officially romanized as Shaman; this katakana rendering is used in all appearances.|
• Officially romanized as Shaman. In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 巫女), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. シャーマン) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
The kanji name refers to the miko (巫女), priestesses of Japan's Shinto religion who work at shrines; in English they are often referred to as "shrine maidens", although "shaman" is also a common translation of the term.
