The Saint (Japanese: 聖者セイント Saint) is an advanced magical class which was introduced in Fire Emblem Gaiden. In Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, it is the promoted form of the Cleric, available only to women, and primarily emphasizes white magic with access to black magic. In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, it is a rare third-tier promoted class and the final stage in the class change line for the Priest, and is now a gender-neutral class. Promoting from the Bishop class, it uses both light magic and staves.

Saints are designed to mainly take advantage of supporting their allies from behind the front lines through their white magic/staves. Their most outstanding feature is their exceptionally high resistance, the strongest of their stats; they also possess high magic and good skill and speed, ensuring that if necessary they are competent fighters in and of themselves. However, their HP and physical defense are lacking like most magical classes, rendering them frail and vulnerable to physical assaults even compared to other magical classes.

In Three Houses, the Saint instead acts as an enemy-exclusive class, used only by Rhea in the Crimson Flower route. Here, it serves as a stronger version of her other personal class, the Archbishop.

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Saint In Christian theology, a saint is a holy figure, formerly a deceased human, who is venerated for having lived as an exemplary example of Christian conduct and worship. Most other religious traditions have their own figures with a similar status, who are also occasionally called saints in English-language discussion.
Japanese 聖女
聖者セイント
• Saint, specifically a female saint. The class is known by this name only in Gaiden and its remake. In Gaiden, it is rendered as せいじょ.
• Officially romanized as Saint; unlike in Gaiden, this name - used only in Radiant Dawn - refers to saints of any gender, not just female. In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 聖者), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. セイント) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
