Field Medic Profession in Cairne | World Anvil

Field Medic

The Field Medic is the front line attendant who selflessly runs into the fray to keep their charges on their feet and protected from harm until they can be treated. They are fast and well trained in the art of shield defense and are often pivotal in combat scenarios.



The Field Medic is the first one to put themselves in harm's way for the sake of a comrade, enduring the dangers of the front lines of combat and shielding the fallen and the wounded from harm until they can administer their skill.
