The Bishop (司祭 Shisai lit. Priest) is a combat and support magical class that recurrently appears across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning from Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi. The traditional promoted form of the Priest, Monk and Cleric classes, the Bishop class usually wields Light Magic as its primary weapon of choice, and is also armed with Staves for support purposes. Bishops are commonly characterized by high Magic, Luck and Resistance that is offset by low Defense.

History in the SeriesEdit

In Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi and its direct sequel Mystery of the Emblem, both the Mage and Priest/Cleric classes promote into the Bishop class. The Sage class, the traditional promotion of the Mage, would not be introduced until Gaiden and not established as the staple promoted class for the Mage until the onset of Thracia 776.

In Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, Bishops are an enemy-only class that employ Staves, Fire, Thunder, and Wind magic. Priests in these titles promote into the High Priest class instead.

In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, Bishop is a standalone class that is near enemy-exclusive; Lee is the only playable Bishop. The Bishop class, alongside the Dark Bishop class, is noteworthy for being the only common magic class that can use both offensive magic and staves.

The Bishop returns as the staple promoted form of both Priests and Clerics in Binding Blade and its prequel Rekka no Ken, now wielding Light Magic as their offensive weapon. In the latter game, the Light-wielding Monk also promotes into this class.

In The Sacred Stones, Bishops are a promotion option for Monks, Priests and Clerics; opposite the Sage class for Monks and Priests, and the horse-mounted Valkyrie class for Clerics. They are in possession of the class skill Slayer, allowing them to inflict effective damage against monsters.

In Path of Radiance and its sequel Radiant Dawn, the Bishop class is the sole promoted form of the Priest class. In Radiant Dawn, the Bishop (司祭ビショップ Bishoppu) is able to further promote into the Saint class.

In Awakening and Fates, the Bishop class is absent, replaced instead by the Sage and Onmyoji classes respectively.
