Protectors are one of the many classes featured in the Etrian Odyssey series. So far, they have appeared in Etrian Odyssey, Etrian Odyssey II, Etrian Odyssey Untold, Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold, and Etrian Mystery Dungeon.
Protectors have the highest base defence and health out of all of the classes. They specialise in lowering damage to the party by either buffing its defences or drawing attacks toward themselves.
Notable Protectors in the series include Raquna Sheldon and Bertrand de Gervaise of the Story Mode campaigns, and Hrothgar, leader of Guild Beowulf. A Protector is also the unofficial mascot of the series.
