The Archer is a humanoid class in Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness.
The Archer is a class designed around the use of the Bow, with ATK and HIT being the best. HIT in particular is the Archer's strongest statistic, and if given a Bow, ensures high critical hit chance.
The Archer's defense, to further augment her long-range style, is more prevalent against magical attacks. A high RES coupled with starting resistances to Fire and Wind attacks makes her excellent against magic-casters. Their RES also makes Archers excellent characters to teach Healing spells, despite Magic range being an issue.
Later tiers of the Archer can also find use in the Spear and the Gun, but mediocre DEF and horrible SPD makes both of these weapons relatively ineffective.
The Archer's Evilities focus on increasing her Attacking power under certain circumstances. Evilities range from a 5% increase per panel between her and her target, to a 100% increase to damage when attacking units with Flying-type movement such as Mothmen and Masked Heroes.
“A kind hunter in the Netherworld. Good at attacking from long distances.”

“They hail from an all-women, ice mountain village called Badre. The voices of the wind tell them the strength and direction the wind is blowing. They strictly adhere to the rules set forth by their ancestors, and hate to use any weapons oher than bows. Their breasts slowly got smaller over the years, so as not to hinder their use of the bow.”
