"Scholars pore over the yellowed pages of ancient tomes in search of the lore that is their power. Whole armies have fallen before their might."

The Scholar is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, exclusive to Nu Mou. They use books as weapons and their skills use the knowledge contained in these books for various effects. They are more of a situational job due to the fact that their damage-dealing skills (which have the same power as illusions) don't discriminate between friend or foe. However, if the party is set up with element-absorbing equipment, the scholar can provide healing along with damage to foes. Their Study skill allows for easier loot theft, and their Natural Selection attack can be useful depending on how many of a race is on either side. In contrast with the series Scholars boast large amounts of physical strength with the downfall of low magic that weakens their attacks. Scholars that stand out in the game are Narph, the unnamed Scholar in the seal quests, and Mack Ocktor at some points in the game.
