"Soldiers employ the arts of war to weaken and slow opponents."

Soldier is a Job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. It is the default Job of the Humes, and the main Job of Luso. Soldiers use "breaks" to inflict statuses on enemies. A soldier is a basic tank, with good Defense, power, and HP. Some of the Soldier's advantages is the ability "First Aid" that recovers HP (but does not remove debuffs like it did in the first game), and his ability "Mug Gil" that harms the enemy and steals its gold. One Soldier A-ability is required to access the Thief and Archer Jobs while three A-abilities are required to access the Paladin and Fighter Jobs.

A notable Soldier NPC is the Komodo Trader (actually named Calvin, though he never says such himself), elder brother to Celestine (although she is reportedly much taller) and employee by Komodo Potions. He is cowardly and quick to panic, and you are required to be defend him thrice during the game. He is an opponent once, when he and his companions trespass Prima Donna's storehouse.

SOLDIERS and WARRIORS use these skills to weaken foes' defenses.

Soldier abilities can be learned by equipping swords or greatswords, purchased from the shop or from completing quests, while warrior abilities can be learned by equipping swords or broadswords. Almost all of the weapons are mainly obtained through the Bazaar.
