"Well protected, defenders stride the battlefield with little fear. They can even nullify certain attacks entirely."

A Job exclusive to Bangaa, Defenders focus on protecting themselves and attacks when surrounded. They are able to sacrifice all their HP to deal damage, but their Aura ability can make them a permanent field unit. True to their name, they have excellent HP and Defense which makes him difficult to injure, let alone knock out, but lacks Resistance, a common trait among Bangaa classes. His abilities are suitable for the Templar if building a support unit. Defenders are often overlooked compared to the Paladin as they lack Cover to protect other units, but they are able do massive damage to opposing units if surrounded.
