Archer D2

The Archer is a recurring Humanoid class in the Disgaea series first introduced in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.



Archers hail from the now all-female community of Badre (パドル), an icy mountain community. Archers have a unique social system lead by their ancestors, the Sevria. It is said that they are born from the roots of a large tree and that they can hear the spirit of the wind, which tells them the direction and power of the wind. They once lived alongside the Rangers, until a war broke out due to the Archers opposing the cold hearted nature of the Rangers. They wield Bows exclusively due to a strong sense of tradition and despise any other means of attack.

In Disgaea 2, Archers make a return as an unlockable class once a character achieves level 5 Bow Mastery, then pass the "Make a Lovely Hunter" bill. The Archer's innate ability allows for a longer attack range with bows. With some time investing in the Item World, an archer can have a 10-panel attack range.
