Songstresses have always been princesses or of royal blood. Each Songstress has always had an affinity for any lance like weapon, along with a voice said to have magical property that can heal others and refresh them in battle. While they have limited spellcasting ablity, these songstresses are still very capable when it comes to skills in battle, and are amazing performers.

Songstress's favor elegance and charismatic persuasion over combat. Others choose to use their voice for support in battle and greed when not in battle. Others use they voice and skills to bring peace even if they have to dirty their hands.
