The Spear Master (Japanese: 槍聖 Sousei) is an advanced infantry class exclusive to Fire Emblem Fates. It is a Hoshido-aligned class which exclusively wields naginata and lances, and is one of the two class change options for the Spear Fighter. Like their base form, Spear Masters have above-average stats in most categories and, while not exceptional in any one category, are competent in all areas, giving them good all-around performance.
