Hoshidan. A holy woman who uses rods to heal her allies.
The Shrine Maiden (Japanese: 巫女 Miko) is a base healer class which was introduced in Fire Emblem Fates as a Hoshido-aligned class. One of only two explicitly female-only Hoshido classes (the other being the Priestess, one of its potential promotions), the Shrine Maiden is the basic female healing class of Hoshido and as such wields rods. They can promote to either Priestess or Onmyoji, and their male counterpart is the Monk.
