The Maelduin (Japanese: マグダイル Macdaire) class, is a class of axe and bow-using monsters that appears in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. A maelduin appears to be a half-human, half-bull mix. Since maelduins are monsters, they are an enemy-only class. They are a stronger version of the Tarvos class, equivalent to a promoted unit. Maelduins appear as strong enemies when monsters are present, in several chapters, the Tower of Valni, and the Lagdou Ruins.

Maelduins are quite strong enemies. They have quite high strength and defense, and above average speed. However, their skill is slightly low, so they rarely hit. Still, they are able to use both axes and bows, which is quite useful for them, able to attack from one or two spaces away. Still, they can be defeated with a speedy sword user or a magic-user, since they have average resistance. They are treated as mounted units, and as such are vulnerable to weapons such as horseslayers.

The boss of Eirika's Chapter 12, Village of Silence, is a maelduin.
