Male and Female Dark Knights.

The Dark Knight is a job class in Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions. It has abilities that focus on hurting opponents while sacrificing your own HP. It costs 6900 JP to master this job. To get the Dark Swords, the player must play the multiplayer mode.

In the original PS1 version, Dark Knight was Gaffgarion's exclusive job class. His class has since been renamed to Fell Knight. While his two abilities, Shadowblade and Duskblade, appear identical to Sanguine Sword and Infernal Strike, respectively, Gaffgarion's variants are slightly more powerful.



This warrior exchanges life for power, using Darkness to disintegrate all who stand before him.
