  • The Cleric, Priest or Bishop is a character class in Dungeons & Dragons and other fantasy role-playing games. The cleric is primarily a healer, but is also very capable when fighting after choosing domains like Zeal or War. They are usually a priest and a holy warrior, and were originally modeled on or inspired by the Military Orders. Clerics are usually members of religious orders, and were originally intended to portray soldiers of sacred orders who have magical abilities, although this role was later taken more clearly by the paladin. Most clerics have powers to heal wounds, protect their allies, and sometimes resurrect the dead. Some are able to summon, manipulate and banish undead.A description of Priests and Priestesses from the NetHack guidebook: Priests and Priestesses are clerics militant, crusaders advancing the cause of righteousness with arms, armor, and arts thaumaturgic. Their ability to commune with deities via prayer occasionally extricates them from peril, but can also put them in it.A common feature of clerics across many games is that they may not equip pointed weapons such as swords or daggers, and must use blunt weapons such as maces, war-hammers, shields or wand instead. This is based on a popular, but erroneous, interpretation of the depiction of Odo of Bayeux and accompanying text. They are also often limited in what types of armor they can wear, though usually not as restricted as mages.Related to the cleric is the paladin, who is typically a Lawful Good warrior often aligned with a religious order, and who uses their martial skills to advance its holy cause.
