The Baron (バロン) is a combat class first introduced in Fire Emblem Gaiden. Originally wielders of Lances as their sole weapon of choice in their first iteration, Barons are later given the versatility to wield all types of physical weapons and almost types of magic in the Jugdral Series.

History in the SeriesEdit

In Gaiden, Barons are the third-tier promotion of the Soldier line. An Armor character could class change into the Baron class any time after reaching level 10. They are pretty much Lance-wielding Generals with high Strength and Defense and low Speed.

In Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, the Baron is an enemy-only class that is able to wield Swords, Lances, Axes, Bows and Staves, as well as Fire, Wind and Thunder magic, losing only to the Master Knight class in versatility. They have high Strength and Defense, and they are also granted the formidable Great Shield skill as their class skill. In Thracia 776, Barons are the only class to possess Great Shield as a base skill.
