The Dark Bishop (ダークビショップ Dāku bishoppu) is an enemy-only combat magical class that is first introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Commonly elite members of evil cults such as the Lopto Sect and the Gerxel Church in the Jugdral Series and TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga respectively, Dark Bishops are outfitted with Dark Magic, Anima Magic and Staves and are the powerful counterparts to Dark Mages.
History in the SeriesEdit
In their original inception in Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, the Dark Bishop class commonly appears armed with potentially lethal tomes like Fenrir and Hell and status-inflicting Staves like Berserk and Sleep, posing as tremendous threats to all who come within range of their attacks.
In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, the Dark Bishop (あんこくしさい Ankoku shisai) similarly manifests as a dangerous adversary armed with nefarious spells that are capable of inflicting vast amounts of damage to all who enter their range of attack. They are one of two common classes capable of using both offensive magic and staves, the other being the Bishop.
