The Wind Mage (Japanese: ウインドマージ Wind Mage) is a basic magical class which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, appearing only in it and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. The class is one of three element-specialized versions of the Mage class of other Fire Emblem series games, along with the Fire Mage and Thunder Mage, and as its name suggests it specializes in wind magic and is unable to wield any other magic type.
The Wind Mage plays near identically to standard Mages as a purely offensive magical class, differing only in being restricted to wind magic. Wind Mages have high magical power and speed, allowing them to somewhat reliably follow-up attack enemies, and in particular making them notably adept at killing slow, heavily-armored Knights. However, Wind Mages have bad low HP and defense, making them highly susceptible to being killed or severely damged in one shot by most physical units.
In Genealogy of the Holy War, Wind Mages promote to the Mage Fighter class. Even though they only appear as enemies in Radiant Dawn, Wind Mages at least hypothetically promote to the Wind Sage class, which in turn promote to the Arch Sage class.
