The Peer (貴族 Kizoku, lit. Aristocrat) is a non-playable class that is first introduced in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. Assumed by Elbert in The Blazing Blade and Fado in The Sacred Stones, the Peer class is aptly named after their positions as members of the aristocracy existing in the titles that they respectively appear in. Although not a playable class, the Peer class does possess unused combat data in The Blazing Blade.
- Both iterations of the Peer class appear as the father of the main protagonist(s).
Peers were, in Britain and Ireland, considered to be members of the ruling aristocracy during the period in history when society was segregated according to social rank. Peers comprised of the ranks of duke, marquess, earl, viscount and baron.
