Lords are a common character class of the Fire Emblem series. Each game in the series, has at least one Lord type character, even if the character's class is not called Lord. Most Lords are based off of Prince Marth, the first Lord in the series who was a blue haired young man, who only wields a sword. Of course, there are also many characters who deviate from this design. The most important trait of this character however, is that if they are defeated in battle, you automatically get a Game Over.
Some games, such as Fire Emblem: Gaiden and BS Fire Emblem have characters who are not called Lords, but behave in the same way as Lords. In fact, all the main characters of BS Fire Emblem use generic classes, such as cavalier or thief, however they still give a Game Over when they are defeated in battle.
