A Spirit Charmer (found in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn) is an individual who has invited spirits into his or her body (or in rare cases, has had it done for them) in order to become more adept at magic. The spirits, due to their interaction with the natural world, can produce large quantities of the Essence that fuels magic. This allows the spirit charmer to become a much more powerful magician than would be otherwise possible. This causes a mark very similar to one a Branded has to appear on the spirit charmer's body. Apparently, this process is extremely dangerous to the spirit charmer since, in exchange for Essence, the spirit will consume the soul of the spirit charmer.
