The Shaman (Japanese: シャーマン Shaman) is a magical class which was introduced in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. They appear as an offensive magical class available to any gender which only wields dark magic. These Shamans are a precursor to the modern Dark Mage class and, like Dark Mages, are a stark contrast to the nimble Mages: they have fearsome magical offense further enhanced by the raw power of dark tomes, but in exchange they have low base speed and are weighed down even more by their heavy tomes. Their defenses are also slightly better than those of ordinary Mages, but are still mediocre which, combined with how easy it is to double-attack Shamans, leaves them better equipped to attack at range from behind the front lines. Shamans promote to the Druid class, and in The Sacred Stones, they also have the option to promote to Summoner instead.
