"Beautiful swordmasters who command the forbidden dark arts of the warmage."

Nightshade is a unique job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, exclusive to Illua, and unavailable for player use. It excels in dealing heavy damage to both single units and groups.

This is not to be confused with Deadly Nightshade.
