BDPB Asterisk

Asterisk in Bravely Default: Praying Brage.

Semiprecious stones obtained after defeating the monk Barras Lehr and white mage Holly Whyte. Possessing a particular stone will confer that stone's job on the bearer.
—D's Journal description

Asterisks (アスタリスク, Asutarisuku?) appear in Bravely Default and Bravely Second: End Layer as small gems with a star inside that confer the job contained within them to their bearer. In Bravely Default, there are twenty-three obtainable asterisks, while in Bravely Second thirty asterisks are available with many returning from the first game.

The party must defeat an asterisk holder in order to obtain the asterisk containing their respective jobs. Only the Freelancer job has no asterisk.

Bravely DefaultEdit

BD Asterisks are jewel-like objects that were created by the Sage Yulyana in his plot to usurp the Crystal Orthodoxy's authority in "granting vocations".

Initially, changing one's job or 'vocation' required a special approval from within the Crystal Orthodoxy. With the asterisks however, the Sage would be able to prevent the institution from growing rich from fat profits known as 'alms'. Sage approached the panicked high officials and the grand patriarch, proposing to them of the asterisks, mentioning that "granting vocations should be based on it, as overseen by the Orthodoxy." To that end, those wanting to apply for a 'vocation' would apply to the Orthodoxy and pay a fair price. Those who can pay may apply to change their jobs. The grand patriarch and his officials only sought profit through it, thus they agreed with Sage's proposal to utilize the asterisks.

Afterwards, Sage was then appointed by the grand patriarch as the 'overseer' to the new asterisk system. However, since Sage was the only person who possessed the knowledge of creating the asterisks, coupled by the fact that he had changed the previous system of changing jobs towards the asterisk system, he had essentially robbed the Crystal Orthodoxy of their authority to grant vocations. Acknowledging his success in having robbed the Orthodoxy of their influence, he escaped from the position, taking with him the knowledge of creating the asterisks. Since the profits gained from the asterisk system were controlled by Sage who had already sequestered himself within the Yulyana Woods, the Crystal Orthodoxy were thus rendered incapable of gaining any semblance of profit from the asterisk job system.

EtymologyEdit

An asterisk (Greek: ἀστερίσκος, asteriskos, "little star") is a typographical symbol or glyph. It is so called because it resembles a conventional image of a star.
