- —Job Description, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.
Simon's unique Job Class in Final Fantasy Tactics. His job was known as Bishop in the PS1 release, but was changed to Elder for the Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions for the PSP version. This job is a story-related job used in cutscenes, and as such it serves no purpose in battle as there are no skillsets associated with the job. It possesses no Abilities, no Reaction Abilities, no Support Abilities, and no Movement Abilities. Curious to say, the developers did take time to give it a job description.

Due to their religious namesake, Bishops are the only Job class in their respective games that can cast the spell Holy. They also have access to Magic Counter and Half MP.
