The Archer (capitalized) is a battle type in the Metal Shadow universe. It describes ranged, offensive elemancers. Their magic is extremely potent, as even a single hit can render the most energized foe unconscious, and they have the accuracy to back it up. When placed at the rear of an enemy formation, they become not just a serious nuisance, but a potential bane.
Archers cannot use their powerful magic frequently. They also aren't very fast, and are laughably fragile on the physical side. The trick is that most Archers stand to the rear of battle formations, untouchable and free to recharge their energy as often as they like. A unit who can slip through formations and cause just enough physical damage to dispatch the Archer is required on such occasions.
