Mage that uses the secrets of alchemy.
Alchemist (錬金術士, Renkinjutsushi?) is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Unlike the Chemist job of other games who normally mix items, Alchemists focus more on the offense, working to alter the composition of the opponent (Ex: Toad and Poison) or of the environment (Ex. Meteor and Flare). Only nu mou can become Alchemists. Combining the alchemist abilities with White Mage abilities makes for a versatile unit.
Alchemists always have access to the Item command, although it can never be actually equipped as a secondary A-Ability. Instead, the player can choose another action ability to be the secondary A-Ability and still use items in battle.

Alchemists have high MP, Magic Power and Resistance growths, below-average speed, and abysmal HP, Attack and Defense. The Alchemist's stat growth can be seen as a balance between the Sage and the Time Mage.
