Protect is a positive status effect that the player can use from their White Mage, White Wizard, Red Mage, Red Wizard, or Knight. It raises the defense of the target slightly. It will not wear off after a set of time and can be stacked on each other like the Temper spell. It will only wear off if the character with Protect on them either dies or has Dispel used on them. After the spell is used the said target of the spell will have a glowing orange outline around them.
