Skill(s)

The Sorcerer (Japanese: ソーサラー Sorcerer) is an advanced magical class which debuted in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. It is a playable class as the primary promoted form of the Dark Mage; it is the successor of the earlier Druid and Dark Sage classes. Sorcerers primarily wield offensive magic, and in Awakening have exclusive access to dark magic alongside normal tomes. The Nintendo DS remake duology also gives Sorcerers the ability to use staves.

Aside from their access to dark magic, Sorcerers are differentiated from their counterpart magic classes - the offensively potent Sage and the staff-proficient Bishop - by their defensive prowess, having high defense and resistance stats in addition to their excellent offensive magical power in Awakening and Fates. In exchange, their skill and speed are somewhat inferior. The role of a Sorcerer is that of an offensive tank, being able to take hits with relative ease while damaging foes in return; in Awakening and Fates, it is further aided in this task with its unique access to the Nosferatu tome, healing it even as it retaliates against foes.
