"They strive to support their allies with songs and dance. Their true strength is the ability to bolster the party."
Troubadour description, Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight

EO1Troubadour

Experts at raising morale, these airy-clothed performers give their all to inspire their comrades during battle through magical songs and dances.

The Troubadour (バード Bard in the Japanese version) are musical prodigies, utilizing song and dance to empower their allies in combat or sapping the enemy's defenses. Though lacking in specific melee prowess, they serve as a jack-of-all-trades, excelling in none but being decent in all, making them utilitile on either line. However, due to their low health and defense, the back line is the most ideal for these performers.
