Light Priestess

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

It has been proposed that Shaman (Genealogy of the Holy War) be merged into this page. Please discuss this change on the linked talk page.

Reason: "[Genealogy Shaman has] the same Japanese name and the class more closely fits the description of the Radiant Dawn incarnation. I [ArthurThomas (TalkContributions)] feel like both of the classes that use light magic and staves would be more appropriate sharing a page since they're all the same Japanese name." (This only applies for the Genealogy of the Holy War version of the class)

The Light Priestess (Japanese: 巫女シャーマン Shaman) is a third-tier advanced Lord-like class which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. The only unit of this class is Micaiah, one of the game's two protagonists, and it is her final class and the ultimate form of her initial Light Mage class; Micaiah promotes from Light Sage to Light Priestess in an event near the end of the game. As a Light Priestess, Micaiah is able to wield light magic and staves.

With strong light magic as well as the utility of staves to aid allies, Micaiah has a mix of offensive and defensive capabilities as a Light Priestess. Her magical power and resistance are among the best in the game, but she still suffers from mediocre HP, bad speed and a dismal defense stat. Micaiah herself has the Sacrifice skill, which allows her to cut her own HP to heal an ally. This, while useful, can be risky, and combined with her poor defensive stats she is generally a very vulnerable unit. Micaiah compensates partially for this by being immune to being attacked by numerous endgame enemies and bosses.

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Light Priestess A priestess is a woman in religious service, referring to Micaiah and the goddess Yune.
Japanese 巫女シャーマン 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.
