FE Echoes Python

Python, shown here, is an archer from the Fire Emblem series.

Archer is a character class in the Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy series. They use bows as their weapon.

Fire Emblem

In the Fire Emblem series, archers are limited to one weapon type: bows. As a result, they excel at long-range combat, but aren't so great when it comes to their defenses. However, Archers and their promotion, Snipers, are the only classes that can use the Ballista, a long-range siege weapon that fires bolts. Archers are invaluable, because in most games bows are the only available weapon with an advantage against airborne foes.

This is a list of playable Archers in the series and the game that they belong to.
