These nu mou can control enemies at will.
The Beastmaster (魔獣使い, Majūtsukai?) is a job available to the nu mou in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. They control various monsters and use bells and other musical instruments in battle. The success rate for controlling a monster varies from monster to monster. A whip appears above the Beastmaster's head (similar to status ailments/enhancements) when they are in control of a monster. Players lose control of the monster when it becomes the Beastmaster's turn again and have to use the "Control" command once more if to resume controlling the monster. The Beastmaster cannot control the five races, however.
A common strategy for many players is to use the Beastmaster in conjunction with a Blue Mage when trying to learn monster abilities, as the Beastmaster can take control of the monster whose ability the player wishes to learn, and "force" the monster to use the ability on the Blue Mage, instead of just waiting for it to randomly happen.

The Beastmaster is the closest the nu mou get to an Attack-oriented job. Its Attack and Defense are the highest out of all the nu mou jobs, and it also has rather respectable HP, Resistance and Speed. The Beastmaster's MP and Magic Power are the lowest available to the nu mou, but those aren't necessary for such an Attack-oriented job.
