Male and Female Samurai

The Samurai is a job class from Final Fantasy Tactics. A balanced job in the physical classes, similar to Geomancer. The Samurai has decent stats all round, making it a solid job. Its job command, Iaido, has the ability to draw spirits out of the Katanas to make effect around the user. Not only the Iaido abilities can deal damage to foes but also recover allies' HP or attach various positive status effects. Indeed, the Iaido abilities are able to differentiate friend and foe like Summon abilities. But there is one eighth chance that using the Iaido skill will break the drawn Katana. It should be noted that you only need the Katana in your inventory, not equipped, to use the ability. All Iaido abilities are Katana specific as well and surprisingly their power is determined by the user's magick power rather than physical power, equipping Arcane Strength learned from Black Mage can boost their power too. It costs 7100 JP to master.
