Mage that uses the secrets of alchemy.
Alchemist (錬金術士, Renkinjutsushi?) is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for the nu mou. Alchemists focus on the offense, working to alter the composition of the opponent (ex: Toad and Poison) or the environment (ex. Meteor and Flare). 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.
