The Reaver (Japanese: 斧雄士アクスブレイブ Axe Brave) is an advanced infantry class which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is a rare third-tier promoted class and the final stage in the Fighter class change line, promoting from the Warrior class. Its primary weapon is axes, and it also has access to crossbows.

Reavers are roughly an axe-specialist counterpart to the Trueblade, Sentinel, and Marksman, and distinguishes itself among these classes with its immense raw attacking power. It has the highest strength stat of any playable beorc class, as well as decent speed, allowing it to hit often and hit extremely hard. Its primary flaw is its defenses, as while it has plenty of HP, its defensive stats are lacking and it is held back by its weapons of choice, with the high weight of its axes and crossbows slowing it down and its ability to avoid incoming attacks. It also struggles with its average skill stat combined with the relatively poor accuracy of axes.

One who reaves, an archaic term for robbing, raiding, or pillaging, or breaking, tearing, or destruction in general.



Officially romanized as Axe Brave. In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 斧雄士), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. アクスブレイブ) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
