Shaman (Genealogy of the Holy War)

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

It has been proposed that this page be merged into Light Priestess. Please discuss this change on the talk page.


Reason: "[Genealogy Shaman has] the same Japanese name and the class more closely fits the description and mechanical purposes of the Radiant Dawn incarnation (being the exclusive class of a major, white-haired female character which uses light magic and staves). I [ArthurThomas (TalkContributions)] feel like both of the classes that use light magic and staves would be more appropriate sharing a page [as opposed to the Jugdral incarnation and GBA incarnations sharing a distinct page from the Tellius incarnation] since [the light magic Jugdral class, dark magic GBA class, and light magic Tellius class] all share the same Japanese name and the Tellius class seems to outright be the same version of this class, as opposed to the distinct, dark magical GBA version." (This merge only applies for the Genealogy of the Holy War version of the class)

The Shaman (Japanese: シャーマン Shaman) is a magical class which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. In their original appearance, Shamans are a female-exclusive class which wields light magic and staves. While they are very frail, they possess the high magic and resistance of traditional healers, giving them good healing proficiency as well as the ability to defend themselves, particularly with Nosferatu. Aside from Deirdre, who is unable to promote, Shamans promote to the Sage class. While Shamans do not technically exist in the following game, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, that game has the virtually identical Cleric class.
