The Imperial (Japanese: インペリアル Imperial) is a class first appearing in Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. In its first appearance, it is a locked class, and the player only gains access to it in the Fourth Land, Cloudy Stronghold; in its return appearance in Etrian Odyssey Nexus, it is instead available from the start.
