The Prince (プリンス Prince) class is a recurring class in the Fire Emblem series, first appearing in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War as the class exclusive to Leif, and as his promoted class in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. In Genealogy of the Holy War it acted as the male form of the Princess class, although it was not as versatile, since the Prince can not use staves. This class had great potential, especially because of its promotion's power. It later appeared in Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken as a cilvilian class, belonging to Bern's Prince Zephiel in Chapter 26 (Eliwood's Route) or Chapter 28 (Hector's Route). In this appearance, Zephiel has a weapon rank of A in swords.
