The Monk (Japanese: 修道士 Monk) is a basic magical class which debuted in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. In The Blazing Blade and The Sacred Stones, Monk is an offensive magical class which wields light magic, and is a male-exclusive class.[1] In Three Houses and Warriors: Three Hopes, the Monk is an entry-level magic-user, able to wield both black and white magic, and is not restricted by gender.

Compared to other offensive magic classes, the Monk possesses lower magic, but higher skill and speed; in conjunction with the typically lightweight and accurate light magic, Monks have excellent accuracy and attack speed.

In The Blazing Blade, Monks promote to the Bishop class, gaining the use of staves. In The Sacred Stones, Monks have the option to promote to Bishop or Sage.
