Corners and dispatches foes with ease.

Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?) is a job only available to viera in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Assassins are the deadliest force, with dangerous instant death abilities and incomparable stat growth in all areas except HP.

This possibly makes the Assassin job the absolute best class to level up viera, but be careful about their HP growth, since Assassins are almost always the first target by enemies because of their low health. A special treat to Assassins is that they can wield either katanas or greatbows in combat. When equipped with the Concentrate ability, Assassins are considered overpowered, since their instant death abilities gain near perfect Accuracy.

Assassins, like Ninjas, are very nicely balanced between MP, Attack, Magic Power and Speed, at the cost of low HP, Defense and Resistance. Assassins are the fastest class.

The Assassins were a secret order of Nizari Ismailis, particularly those of Persia and Syria, that formed in the late 11th century. Mentions of Assassins were preserved within European sources where they are depicted as trained killers, responsible for the systematic elimination of opposing figures.
