Mages are lightly-armoured fighters who use can bypass physical defenses of opponents with Anima magic. They made their debut in Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Ken and have traditionally appeared in every game since.
Mages, along with other magic users, tend to have low physical scores, but high Magic, Speed and Resistance. In certain games, Mages have been split into three categories; Fire Mages, Thunder Mages, and Wind Mages, who specialise in their namesake magic types.
