Promotes to: Omnyoji or Great Master

The Monk is the male-exclusive version of the Shrine Maiden. As such, both share the same skillset and growth rates, but promote to either Great Master (Monk) or Priestess (Shrine Maiden), who use different weapons.

The Monk is basically a standard healing class, and all armies will absolutely need a dedicated healer. Like the Shrine Maiden and many other unpromoted healers, the Monk has no way of attacking or defending, which can in the beginning cause headaches when leveling him up. But the rewards are well worth it, and even healing allies for just 1 HP will allow them to gain experience.

Gaining access to Rally allows the units to have more use beyond just healing as well. They can become “rallybots”, units specializing in acquiring multiple rally skills so that one use of the “Rally” command boosts multiple stats.
