Clerics draw their power from divine sources, while many are also trained for battle. As warriors and healers, they can help their allies but also harm their enemies, bring the dead back to life, and destroy the undead with powerful magical chants.

While some clerics are temple priests and prefer to serve like that their whole life, others travel the world as the voice of their God guides them on. Their deity’s goals become their own, and they bravely face any dangers that lie ahead with devotion.

Clerics care more about spreading the word of their God than making their own name known, and individuals of different races answer the divine calling. Examples of the names are Mira Onetouch, Heran Soothand, and Lorna Fairweather.
