A unit's archetype determines their stat growth when leveling up. It is also used to determine bonuses for Mixed Unit Tactics. The archetypes are:
Classes within specific types can be upgraded. Class upgrades come from Class XP (CP) gained through combat or CP items, which leads a unit to class mastery. Once that class is mastered, and they have the prerequisite stats and the army has the resources for it, the player can upgrade into higher tiers. Further still, once a Tier 3 or Tier 4 unit has reached max mastery it can be upgraded one last time using a Proof of Merit, giving it a substantial all around stat boost but it can never change classes again.

If units fall in battle, they will be out for the rest of the chapter, and revived during the next Home Base sequence. They can also be revived at Temples.
If a non-story unit dies while Permadeath is enabled, the unit will no longer be available for use.
