The Paladin (パラディン Paradin) is a horse-mounted combat physical class that recurrently appears across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning from Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi. Commonly the promoted form of the Cavalier class, the equipment armed by the Paladin class varies depending on the title. On the whole, Paladins are known to be outfitted with Swords and Lances as their primary weapons of choice.

History in the SeriesEdit

In its original inception in Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, the Paladin class is established as the staple promoted form of the Social Knight class, wielding Swords and Lances as its weapons of choice.

In Gaiden, Paladins not just act as the promoted form of the Cavalier class, but they are also able to be further promoted into the Gold Knight class. This iteration of the class is locked to using Lances.

The Paladin class is reverted to its prior incarnation in Mystery of the Emblem, where it is simply the promoted form of the Social Knight class and cannot be further promoted.

In both Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, Paladins are not just the promoted form of the Social Knight class, but also the promoted form of Troubadours. These female Paladins are, apart from being armed with Swords and Lances, also able to equip Staves for support purposes. They act as the predecessors of the Valkyrie class.

The Paladin class is one of the promoted forms of the Rook Knight class in TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. Only Estelle and Rina are able to promote into this class, though Roger starts as such.

In Fire Emblem: Binding Blade and Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, Paladins can wield axes in addition to Swords and Lances.

In The Sacred Stones, the Paladin class is not just one of the promoted forms of the Cavalier class, but also the promoted form of the Recruit (2) class. However, they can no longer use axes, as such ability is given to the Great Knight class.

In Path of Radiance, the Paladin class is the promoted form of a variety of horse-mounted classes, including the Sword, Lance, Axe and Bow Knight classes. Paladins in this title are able to wield any two of the four physical weapon types available, depending on their base weapon and secondary weapon selected at the point of promotion.

The Paladin class technically does not appear in Radiant Dawn, though there are specialised Paladins that specialize in specific weapon types and are thence split into the Blade, Lance, Axe and Bow Paladin classes. All of these variant Paladins have different names in the Japanese version which do not tie them to the "Paladin" name.

In Shadow Dragon and Shin Monshō no Nazo, Paladins are merged back into a singular entity and are the promoted form of the Cavalier class yet again.

In Fates, the Paladin class is treated as a Nohrian class and is one of the promoted forms of the Cavalier class.

OverviewEdit

CombatEdit

The Paladin class works in exactly the same manner as their unpromoted form, relying on their superior Movement to support their allies rather than engage in prolonged melee combat. They are often the first units to meet the enemy in battle, and with sufficient support from other mounted units, can clear out important sections of the map and kill off stray enemies with comparatively minimal effort. Because they lack the frailty and weakness to bows that plagues Pegasus and Falcon Knights, they are often the units best equipped to save villages and treasure chests from falling into enemy hands. Like Cavaliers, they are well rounded, but typically gain a significant boost to their Resistance, though this is a minor perk at best.

Because they have no real statistical strengths, Paladins and Cavaliers are often used to aid other characters, often assisting in kills at range or up close, rushing forward to quickly block a wave of approaching enemies, plugging reinforcement points, or (when applicable in the later games) use the Rescue command or Pair up with on an injured or slow ally to bring them into/out of the battle. If Paladins ever hit a point where they can reliably double and kill standard enemy mobs on their own, however, they can quickly become one-person armies. Regardless of the Paladin's strength, however, the player should always pay careful attention to ensure that Paladins do not get attacked by enemies armed with horse slaying weapons such as the Beast Killer.

Paladins are also capable of acting as substitutes for Generals due to their decent Strength and Speed. Very effective in disrupting enemy troops long enough for the player's units to get into position, Paladins are generally the center of attention when using this tactic and thus must either retreat or be rescued once the main objective is achieved. If there is a 'Jeigan' character at the beginning of the game, they usually occupy this class, with some exceptions.

In WiFi battles, Paladins have a Speed cap of 25 and a Defense cap of 30. This allows them to survive being attacked directly by any other unit (excluding critical hits and attacks performed with a forged Poleax/Ridersbane). Further bolstering these strengths is their high Movement of 10 points, which is considered the superlative out of any playable class. These traits make Paladins one of the best classes for WiFi battles.
