Spirit Summoner[edit]

Spirit Summoners go into a daze like trance that looks like sleeping when they enter combat but they are defended by a manifestation of fighting spirit. Some sprits cut with swords, some puncture with bows, and some sling spells that a wizard wishes he could. No matter who they summon they are valiantly defended in combat by these spirits that show themselves in dreams. These spirits couls be guardian angels, Souls determined to protect the summoner, or even an ancestor watching over their distant great-grandchild.
