The Marshall (Japanese: 将帥マーシャル Marshal) is an advanced infantry class which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. They are a rare third-tier promoted class and the final stage in the class change line for all of the game's heavily armored classes. Marshalls wield all three of the weapon types available to the game's armored classes - swords, lances, and axes - although their proficiency and stats depend on their original weapon of choice in their initial class.

Marshalls have the second-highest defense stat of any playable class in Radiant Dawn, surpassed only by Dragonlords. As is traditional for the heavily armored classes, Marshalls have immense HP, strength and defense, and high resistance for a physical class. This comes at the expense of low speed and the lowest movement of all third-tier advanced classes. Their access to a wide variety of weapons, high strength, good skill stat and access to the Luna skill gives them a good offensive presence as well, but their low speed holds them back and leads to them being frequently follow-up attacked. They continue the armored tradition of specializing in being defensive pivots to block impending enemy charges, and their high resistance, only surpassed by Seraph Knights among the physical classes, enables them to stand their ground against magic users as well.

The advanced classes Sword General, Lance General, and Axe General - themselves the promoted forms of the Armored Sword, Armored Lance, and Armored Axe - all change class to become Marshalls, with each class becoming a slightly different variant with different weapon levels and stats. There also exists a NPC-exclusive Marshall variant exclusive to Zelgius which appears only in a cutscene in Part 3 Chapter 4. This variant has much higher stats than the usual Marshalls and has the Eclipse skill instead of Luna, but is unable to use axes.

Language Name Definition, etymology and notes


Marshall (alternatively spelled marshal) is a modern military command rank which is the highest possible rank available to members of a land army in many countries. The title has its origins as a feudal title given to some court dignitaries.



Officially romanized as Marshal; literally "commander" from the kanji. In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 将帥), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. マーシャル) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.











Gran generale

Great general
